Why Easter matters now

"All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation, and we have a priceless inheritance - an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay"
1 Peter 1:3-4

This week

Tuesday 7.30pm - Leadership Team meeting
Friday 7.30pm - CPBC Zoom meetup

Mission Prayer


We support a missionary family working in a country where their faith and mission is not always welcome. This week we are praying for them as they continue to learn the language of the area they are based, and develop networks with the local community and leaders. We are also lifting up their children in prayer, one of whom is looking for employment. Please remember them in your prayers.

Giving online

During the closure of the church, we are working to make sure we can still do God's work in the community, supporting our members and our missions. As much as possible we are making every effort to function as best as we can. As part of this, if you are a regular giver or wish to make a donation you can do so online through our website. It's safe, secure and is another way of reducing the risk of spreading contamination through the use of cash or cheques. As ever, you are not obliged to give but if it is your wish to, this route is open to you.

Give online
