Church without Walls: where barriers come down, people are welcomed, and together we flourish.
The Christmas decorations are all packed away and we have begun the new year with another lockdown. While I am sure January is going to be a tough month for many, those who are poorly with COVID, the huge anxieties about the high rate of infection and everyone needing to be extremely careful, I do also feel a sense of hopefulness at the beginning of a New Year.
There is a practical hopefulness based on the vaccine's that are slowly being rolled out, but there is also hopefulness in the way we can together, each day, allow God's love to be the main motivator of our lives. It is always so tempting to look ahead to a better time, an easier time, a time when we somehow being the people God calls us to be will be easier... but this is the time we live in, right now we can each, in our own small way, be people who bring glimpses of hope and love into our world.
Our Church without Walls services and groups contiue to meet; there will be Daily Prayer and our weekly contemplative prayer, Sacred Space, both on Zoom and Facebook Live. Talking Point will continue, a weekly discussion group now on Zoom and we also have Chit Chat for those struggling with their mental health (currently on Zoom but possibly in future socially distant outdoors). We are a community always welcoming new people so pop along and get involved!
Join us for worship at home! Bring your coffee, stay in your PJs and meet with old friends and new.
