Mission Prayer

Our mission prayer this week is for Home Mission (Youth)

Communities around our nation are being transformed by Home Mission through grants to churches and regions which facilitate church planting, the resourcing of local churches and enable churches to develop new and creative mission projects. In our local setting, we will be praying for our Youth work this week.

Purpose Driven Life - Coming soon

This 6-week Sunday teaching and small group series will commence on 23rd February, exploring how the quest for personal fulfilment, satisfaction and meaning can only be found in understanding and doing what God placed us on earth to do; through living the great commandment and the great commission of Jesus. During the duration of the course, there will be an opportunity to be part of a short-term small group. Listen out for more information during the service this Sunday. 

CPBC Month of Prayer

The January month of prayer has now finished, but please keep praying for the church throughout the year.

Compassion appeal

We sponsor four children through the Compassion programme by regular donations from a few church members. This is an appeal for those who have volunteered to donate to do so regularly so we can continue to do God's work in the lives of these children. If you would like to join us in regularly contributing whatever you can afford please speak to Clement or Judith. 
The more of us there are, the more we can make a difference in the lives of these children and in turn, their families and communities.

House groups

We presently just have one regular group, meeting in the Church Lounge on Friday mornings at 10am. Please speak to Judith Seymour (picture on the who's who board near the main entrance for more details, or contact Pastor Steve.  

Digital skills - social media 101

The first digital skills workshop will take place on Wednesday, April 8 at 10am at Crofton Park Baptist Church and will cover the basics of using social media safely and effectively. We will look at how to set yourself up on social media channels like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn. How you can look after your information and how to keep your children safe online. This session will suit people of any age who have never used social media or aren't quite sure if they are using it in the right way. It will also suit parents who might want some tips on how to keep their kids safe online. Places are free for church members and £5 for non-members. Visit our website and Facebook page for more details or contact Clement on 07805 900571 or email
