CTiBChurches Together In Beckenham
What We Do
Each year we put on a number of events and activities both as individual churches and collectively as Churches Together in Beckenham. Given the past year’s restrictions, many of our churches have adapted and found new ways of connecting with other churches and our wider communities.
2020 AUTUMN / WINTER
Despite regular changes to restrictions during the Covid-19 pandemic, our churches were still able to make Christmas a special time of year. All of our churches managed to hold Advent, carol, and Christmas day services in some capacity, whether online or outside in gardens and car parks.
During Advent we had a number of great resources and activities available: a Memorial tree set up by Penge Congregational Church, an Advent cupboard of crafts for children run by Avenue Baptist Church, and a live Advent Calendar mapped out by St Johns Beckenham, to name just a few.
2020 was also the year we set up our CTiB Facebook and Instagram pages to stay connected to our congregations and community when we couldn’t meet physically.
2019 AUTUMN / WINTER
Our churches hosted a number of events in the run up to Christmas. There were music events, advent services, toy sales, nativity services, a beer festival and many others. We also returned to Waitrose in December for the CTiB carol singing.
As well as these events, we held our AGM and our Clergy and Reps meeting, where we get together and share what God has been doing in our churches, prayer requests and plans for the future.
