LENT STUDY GROUPS

This year the Lent groups will be studying a York Course booklet & CD “On the Third Day”. It is a 5 session ecumenical course which lends itself well to discussion groups.

Course Rationale: The resurrection is the Big Story that turned a little Jewish protest movement into a world-transforming religion. How can we re-capture the explosive power of the resurrection that ricocheted around the world? How can we live in the glow of resurrection and be an Easter people? How can ‘there and then’ become ‘here and now’?

5 Sessions:
1. Have I got news for you!
2. So what? The implications of the Resurrection
3. ‘Let him easter in us’
4. Celebrating and praying Easter
5. A risen Church
The course booklet includes a good selection of questions at the end of each of the five sessions, designed to stimulate wide-ranging discussion.

Parish Breakfast

Parish breakfasts resume on the first Sunday of each month, in the Porch Room, starting 7th January at 8.50am. Apart from the luxury of having your breakfast made for you, this is a great chance for the 8 o’clock congregation to meet up with those who attend the 10 o’clock service, enjoy a chat and get to know each other. On offer each month is delicious porridge, a range of cereals, bacon rolls, croissants, toast as well as tea, coffee, juice and much more.
All proceeds from the donations go to charity.

Wednesday Cuppa Continues

Cuppa
 
Takes place every week from 2:30 until 4:00pm in the Porch Room.

Do you enjoy Singing?

We are growing our choirs! Adult & Junior choirs sing a wide range of music not only for regular church services but also for weddings, funerals, carols in church, special events and even a film! Junior singers receive special training – past choristers are currently singing in the Gloucester Cathedral boys and girls choirs. Choral scholarships are available for over 16-year-olds still in full-time education. Adults singers commit only to what they are able to do. Details on the church website and on the Choirminch Facebook page. If you think you might enjoy singing, contact Julian Elloway for an informal chat

Daily Prayer

The Church has a tradition of daily prayer which embraces the three key elements of praise, intercession and engagement with scripture.

This page links to the C of E Daily Prayer website allowing us all to join in this daily pattern of prayer. When using the Offices individually read both the priest's and people's part.
