CCL Ministry to students and young professionals

With the start of a new school year comes the time for exciting new plans. If you'd like to take part in our discussions about the way forward for our ministry to students and young professionals, we're inviting you to a meeting on Sunday 12 September from 16 - 18:30 in the Church hall. It's open to everyone, so come along and let us know what you think, and what you're hoping for. We're listening out for God's plan for us.
(And there should be a welcome snack to enjoy, too!)

  • No need to reserve a place in church on Sunday morning, just come along. We'll be able to welcome more people so we look forward to seeing you.
  • We'll still be asking you to sign in, however, in case we need to contact you, and we'll maintain our hygiene routines for as long as necessary.
It's exciting and so encouraging that the pandemic (and geopolitical concerns) have not stopped us from moving forward, and there is lots to look forward to. But we need your support, so join in if you can!

Taking part

There are lots of ways for you to bring your gifts and talents to the service of God and neighbour.
We mentioned the Wednesday morning café last week, and here's another way to use your talents. If you're a computer/WordPress/blogging whiz, get in touch if you'd like to help with the website
And don't forget Debbie is looking for helpers on Saturday afternoon 18 September, see above.

We're grateful to everyone who continues to support the church and its work, which goes beyond weekly services. Thank you!
If you're not already a regular giver, please consider whether you can give a little each month. Small amounts are just as welcome as large ones, really!
