CTN News Updates

May we more deeply experience God’s wonderful Peace as He leads us on through these challenging times… It would be really good if we are able to keep in regular contact so that we may pray for and generally encourage one another in our various situations. Plus, here are some news updates to keep you in the loop.

Seeway Trust

Most of you will know George Bainborough, who along with his wife Sally, set up and have been running Seeway Trust for many years. Their latest magazine will very soon be available and they would be delighted to send you a copy. There is a Contact page on their website www.seewaytrust.org.

Lifelines Exeter

Call to action – please can you become personally involved in this initiative to have 12 pages of Christian testimonies and articles with the Good News of what God can really do in the lives of ordinary people. This would be delivered by Royal Mail to 50,000 households in Exeter. At two people per household, we can be reaching 100,000 people (your friends, family, neighbours, colleagues) in a way and for a cost that is exceptional. We already have indications of support for this project managed by a Christian charity. Thank you so much  let’s be part of the Great Commission reaching others for Jesus. What greater thing is there for us to do?

Free Marketing Workshops

Liane of Western Wills has kindly shared about free business skills workshops and webinars run by Business Information Point.

The Salt Network

With many businesses wrestling with the questions about surviving the pandemic, we invite you to take a look at the Salt Network which looks at issues such as: Meaningful Work, Meaningful Life: Finding the purpose of business. Visit their website at caid.org.uk and discover how your business can help transform communities across the world. 


Here at CTN we are progressively looking to set up in seven other locations delivering the breakfast meetings as they once were before Covid-19 and also our CrossLife meetings – a sort of less formal FGB evening meeting where testimony sharing takes place. Please contact me if you are interested in getting involved.
