Weekly news

Sunday 22 December 2019

Welcome to your weekly newsletter from Crofton Park Baptist Church. This week Mark Smith is leading our all-age Nativity service.

All-Age Nativity Service

"Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."
Luke 2:11-12

This week at CPBC

Christmas Day celebration, Wed 10am (Combined service with Grace Church Brockley) 

Mission Prayer

Our mission prayer this week is for Street Pastors

Street pastors are trained volunteers from local churches who care about their community.
They patrol in teams of men and women, usually from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. on a Friday and Saturday night. To find out if you could become a Stree Pastor visit their website.

CPBC Month of Prayer

January will be a month of prayer for Crofton Park Baptist Church. This will include the opportunity to form prayer triplets for the month, and there will be a prayer card with prayer points for the church for each day of the week. Within the month, there will a more concentrated Week of Prayer, 18th-24th, beginning with the Quarterly Church Prayer Meeting on Saturday 18th. Please listen for more details during the service.

Don't dine alone this Christmas

If you know someone who might be dining alone this Christmas, a couple of restaurants are offering free meals to the elderly or homeless. Caribbean restaurant Cumming Up on Lewisham High Street, and Muslim-owned restaurant Shish restaurant in Sidcup offer meals to homeless and elderly people on Christmas Day so that “no one eats alone" For more information read this article.

Chance for Childhood - Thank you

Olive would like to thank all who have continued to give their small change to support Chance for Childhood. Just to let you know that she is still collecting and Sue Dickson is coordinating on her behalf, so keep the change coming. It is getting harder to raise money this way due to the increasingly cashless society so your efforts are much appreciated.
