CMA Gloucester January Church visit

We are pleased to have arranged a visit to Worcester Cathedral for their morning service on Sunday 26th January. The cathedral authorities have kindly given us permission for us to park our motorcycles on cathedral premises (details over). However, if you are travelling in a car then you will need to park in the nearest car park in Copenhagen Street, postcode WR1 2HB, where parking is £3.60 for 3 hours and £5.00 for 4 hours. This is a chance to be part of the congregation in this special place. We are not helping to lead the service. Please make every effort to come to this, our first church visit of 2020. It would be a lovely way to begin our CMA year. Do pray for dry, clear weather!

Glos / Bristol CMA Bible Study workshop

Event Date: 12/01/2020

Glos / Bristol CMA Bible Study workshop

Sunday 12th January 2.30pm to 8.00pm at : The Ark, 45 Long Street, Wotton under Edge. GL12 7BX

This has been primarily arranged for Gloucester and Bristol branch members who wish to become full MEMBERS of CMA UK after being SUPPORTER MEMBERS for some time. There is a requirement to complete a workbook about how the CMA works and how individuals are expected to behave and participate. An additional ‘Spiritual Growth’ has to be studied. This may seems a bit laborious for those who are not currently involved in CMA in an official capacity. However, this issue was decided upon at a National AGM some years ago in order to ensure that everyone actively committing to the mission of CMA understands what is required of them. This meeting has been arranged in order to discuss some of the issues included in the Spiritual Growth course. The invitation is extended to anyone (whether you are already a member or not) who may wish to be part of the discussion and study for your own benefit. It is essential that you inform Alan that you are intending to come. There will be refreshments available for breaks but no evening meal. There are plenty of takeaways close to The Ark, or you may wish to bring your own packed meal (no cooking facilities available).
