What is church membership all about?
If you would like to explore what membership at GBC entails, you are invited to join us on Sundays 9 and 16 October at 7.00pm at GBC. Over these two evenings you will have the opportunity to find out about the structures, ethos, and heartbeat of GBC, the responsibilities and privileges of membership as well as a time for questions. These are information sessions for anyone wanting to find out more. Some may then want to pursue an application for membership. If you would like to attend, please speak to Carolyn.
If Prison Walls Could Speak
A critically acclaimed professional theatre performance is coming to Godmanchester this Friday (30 September) at 7:30pm with the profits being used to help fund the arrival of a refugee family into the town. 

The play, If Prison Walls Could Speak, is based on the book "Imprisoned with ISIS" and tells the true story of a Christian aid worker who was imprisoned in Sudan. 

It is a production for Christians and non-Christians alike and has been stirring audiences since debuting in September 2021, including MP Fiona Bruce who reported “The skill and stage direction was phenomenal, hugely impacting for everyone [...] I thought I knew about the Persecuted Church, but this play brought it to life. A must-see."

Tickets, which cost £10, are available from the GBC Office or online at ticketsource.co.uk/godmanchesterbaptist or by scanning the QR code, or pay at the door on Friday.
Cakes and magazines needed!
Please contact Carolyn if you are able to bake some cakes over the coming weeks for the various events taking place.

We also need a collection of colourful magazines to be used for craft activities please!
