Church Transistion Pack

As GHBC prepares for interregnum and starts its search for a new full time minister, we have to prepare a number of documents. These are to tell prospective ministers about the church, who we are, what we do, and about the type of person we are looking for.

The church will have a say in what these documents contain. This article references these documents as they exist at present. If you have any comments about any of them please get in touch, don't forget to include your contact details so we can contact you with any questions we may have about your comment.

GHBC wins £5,000 award

We were recently awarded £5,000 toward our Bags of Hope project by the Wiltshire Community Foundation to help us continue our work. With closures and redundancies announced across Swindon, Bags of Hope is set to become an important link in the ideas we have to help the needs of our community.

If you can help in anyway, or you you could use a bag of food, do contact Heather and the team.

A beacon of hope - Vision Update from Steve

Our meetings have been limited recently, however the work of Steve, Jacob and the Deacons to develop and shape our church for the future goes on. Steve has produced a new Vision Update newsletter for us, explaining recent changes in the way we are organised and encouraging us to put our trust in God.

Boxes of Hope Update

A big thank you to everyone who has donated to our Boxes of Hope appeal. We were able to make up 51 Bags of Hope on Wednesday 17th June and we delivered nearly all of them. The families that received them were referred to us by many different people and organisations around the town and all recipients were very grateful, some overwhelmed, with the generosity of the gift.

However we still have lots of families that require our help; one school that we have spoken to has many families that are in need and require a lot more bags.We have been able to give them just 18 but we need many more as there are still many families in need.
