Jesus said, “the kingdom of heaven will be like this….

For it is as if a man, going on a journey, summoned his servants and entrusted his property to them; to one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability.”Matthew 25:14


This Lent we will again be running the Talents Scheme to help towards Cranleigh Parish Room fund.   Our wonderful Parish Room is already enriching our lives together – but it still needs paying for.

To support this project, we are asking you to take the £10 gift offered to you under the Talents Scheme on 2+3 March – and then multiply it, through your own talents, and donate the money raised back to the project, handing it in on or before the Feast of Pentecost which falls on Sunday 9th June.

Suggestions include growing plants from seeds, organise a social event, offer a service to friends and family, make and sell cakes, offer a lesson if you have a particular skill.   Remember you can go it alone or group together with others to produce a joint Talent event.  All your talents are valued and valuable so do put them to good use this Lent and Easter. If you need any support or have any questions or would like your event publicised, please contact the Parish Office (01483 272075 or office@cpcb.org.uk

Bishop Richard Arundel Castle smilling.jpgSaturday 23rd February 2019, 10am to 1pm at St Philip Howard Centre, Crawley.

To engage further with ‘ The Word Who is Life’ there is an opportunity for the women of the Diocese to meet with Bishop Richard to explore the role of women in our Diocese: what they are doing, what they would like to achieve, what they can offer and what the Diocese can offer them. See fliers on the notice boards.

Some of us have already decided to go to this event. If you would like to join us or would like more information, contact Bridget Eacott (Tel 892406 or email bmeacott@hotmail.com).

Unknown-1.jpegFor those who attended the CAMEO evening and heard Gillie Nicholls talk please see her note: “Just a line to let you know that, due to the increasing threats to European travellers in Burkina Faso, I have with huge sadness cancelled my planned trip.  When I first travelled to Burkina Faso in 2005 it was deemed the safest of all the African countries.  Now it is one of the most dangerous.  This is due to the terrorist activities of Al Quaeda of Islamic Maghreb based in Mali and Niger.

My cancelling the trip has caused much disappointment to those who look forward to my annual visit.  Please join me in praying that Burkina Faso and its neighouring countries will overcome the current difficulties and thus make it possible for me to return at some time in the future.  With love to you all, Gillie”
