Romans 8:20-21

This week

Friday 7.30pm - CPBC Zoom meetup

Mission Prayer

This week we are praying for the Mahons

The Mahon family are Dave and Michele, with Jonathan, Ruth and Phoebe. They are serving in Peru as part of BMS' long-term programme. Based in Iquitos, they are working alongside the Loreto Association of Baptist Churches as they look to implement a sustainability plan over the coming years. They are involved in teaching and curriculum development at the Nauta Integral Mission Training Centre, and also support the running of the centre.

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

Sponsor Judith - Unlock Walk goes virtual

If you've got young ones at home from 2-13 years, you've probably been inundated with apps for all sorts of learning aids. If you're looking for one that helps with reading and spelling but want to try before you buy, try Reading Eggs. It has a virtual library, some gamification where your kids can compete with others in spelling tests along with the ability to earn badges. They currently have a 30-day free trial. Here's a link to their website.
