Our coffee shop, The Welcome Bap, will also cease trading with effect from Saturday, 21st March. We are looking at ways of supporting church members and our community during this uncertain time via online resources and telephone support.

First forest church an inspiration

The first Blackdown Forest Church, organised and led by J Ingrams, member of CBC, was a great success. Meeting on a cold but sunny January Saturday down at Chard Reservoir, we explored journeys and where we had come from, looked at the amazing detail found in nature and discovered things we had not seen before - with delicious flatbread baking before our eyes!

Monthly church lunches are back! They will generally be held on the second Sunday of each month. These lunches will be ‘bring and share’, so bring something to contribute, such as a plate of sandwiches, a salad, a quiche, a cake, a trifle … etc. This is a fantastic opportunity for us to spend time together as a church family, in a relaxed setting, so don’t miss out!
