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

The Good Seed

But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.
Matthew 13:23

Keep in touch

Don't forget to pop in and visit members who aren't able to make it to church due to ill-health or other reasons. As the nights grow colder and days shorter, it is important we all keep in touch. If you know a member who would appreciate a visit, please contact a member of the pastoral team or speak to Steve.

No Rainbow Drop-in this Thursday

There will be no Rainbow Drop in this Thursday though the Tuesday group will go ahead as planned. Rainbow is our toddler group for mums and little 'uns that meet for playtime, stories and chats, on Tuesdays and Thursdays during term-time. You can find out more about Rainbow Drop-in on their Facebook page or our website.

Quarterly Church Prayer Meeting

The church prayer takes place on Saturday 30th November, 10-11.30am. This time we will be especially focusing on our prayer on the Springs Dance Company event the following Saturday and the Christmas services. There will also be space for quieter reflection on the day before the beginning of Advent.

Journey of the Magi - tickets selling fast

Journey of the Magi is a sparkling production of dance, theatre, song and poetry. Entertaining, powerful and compelling, Journey of the Magi is back - and it’s as festive, witty and poignant as ever. Enjoy a wonderful performance from the Springs Dance Company. There will also be the opportunity to buy some light refreshments during the interval. The performance is family-friendly but may not suit children under 3. Tickets are £6 for adults, £3 for under 16s and £15 for a family of four. For more information contact  Helen or Clement.
