Early Christmas Present for CRB!!The Grants Committee and Board of The Baptist Insurance Company has agreed a grant of £10,000.00 towards the outreach work of Cemetery Road Baptist Church.
Andrew Atkin, CRB Treasurer, on behalf of the CRBC Deacons said: “This award will be an invaluable contribution towards the costs associated with our recently appointed new full-time and part-time staff, including our Associate Minister, Farsi Worker, Young People’s and Families Pastor and Assistant Pastor. It makes a wonderful contribution towards helping us accomplish our mission to grow a healthy multi-ethnic church that is even more effective in relating to and serving across cultural borders – a place that makes a difference to the spiritual health of those joining – a church where those joining can find significant purpose as they walk with Jesus.”
Ann Bishop, Chair of the BIC Grants Committee, said :”We were so encouraged to read about your work among migrant communities in Sheffield and pray the Lord’s blessing as you go forward.”
