searchlight & events from ctio

Dear Christ Church,



St Barnabas Church in St Mary Cray is hosting a production by Searchlight Theatre in November. 


In would be good to support our friends at St Barnabas and so please find below details of the event and how you can book tickets.  Early Bird tickets, priced £10, are only available until next week.  Please go to the following link to buy your tickets: 




An unforgettable evening of storytelling, theatre, music and mirth with speaker and author Jeff Lucas

Tracing the story of Barnabas, a largely overlooked character who contributed so much to the life of the early church, the evening will call you to live the everyday life in a beautiful way.  Barnabas is a tremendous example of generosity, encouragement, believing the best, volunteering, and being a practical servant in the church. His life also teaches us important lessons about maintaining unity and navigating conflict.


A brilliant evening suitable for all - come and be entertained, inspired and encouraged.


Friday 18th November 7:15pm 

at St. Barnabas Church, St. Paul's Cray

Rushet Rd, Orpington 



And some events that you may be interested in from Churches Together in Orpington:


Prayer walk to speak blessing across Bromley

On Saturday September 24th we will meet at 9.30am at Tatsfield Lane, next to West Heights Nursery - at Westerham Heights - to walk and pray 'Footsteps of Blessing' across Bromley, to  Bromley town centre. it is about 10 miles but there will be a minibus, for those who can't walk the whole way. We will arrive in Bromley at 4pm and for those who can stay there will be a prayer meeting at Cornerstone church. Everyone will need a picnic lunch, bottled water, suitable footwear and either sun cream or warmish clothing - depending on the forecast.
