Sunday’s service was all age worship for the start of Lent. We went ‘into the desert’ where Jesus (and many of God’s people) have been tried and tested, and have grown in faith. We explored the desert (the sandpit!), we made space for quiet and contemplation, we made unleavened bread (pancakes), and we made prayer chains to help us give these 40 days of Lent to God.

This Sunday is Church Action On Poverty Sunday and the 6th Sunday after Epiphany. One of the meanings of the word Epiphany is “a moment of sudden and great revelation or realization” and we hope and pray that we will all have an epiphanal moment that poverty is not acceptable and that we will all work towards a more equitable society and world.
We will be welcoming the Rev Tom Lusty from St Chad’s to lead us in our thoughts about Luke 5:17-39 and he will also be sharing the Feast of Life with us. Heston will be leading worship at St Michael’s.
A hole in the roof experience
This coming Sunday at 10:30am the Rev David Randolph Horn will be sharing his thoughts on Luke 5:1-16 and Heston will be leading us in the Feast of Life. After the service we will be having a shared lunch so do come and join us and bring some food to share if you are able.
“Peter’s Catch of Fish” by Eric de Saussure, 1968.
In Sunday’s worship we will observe Homeless Sunday, and welcome Nigel Greenwood to preach. This is very timely, with the scarily increasing numbers of people sleeping rough in this cold wet winter.
It is also very appropriate that this week we have been offering a ‘home’ to 9 wonderful, destitute WYDAN guests.
We are taking a brief break from the Gospel of Luke and our readings are James 2:14-26 and Matthew 25:31-40.
And we also need to talk about the roof over our heads! For 15 minutes after worship, we will discuss all the amazing things that happen under All Hallows’ roof, and what progress we’re making to ensure we don’t become a ‘homeless’ church. The picture is both hopeful and challenging.
Do come and join us for 10:30am on Sunday morning!
This week we are very excited to have Jon Dorsett sharing his thoughts on Luke 4:1-30 and Heston will be leading us in celebrating the Feast of Life.
This Sunday is the second Sunday after Epiphany and Heston will be sharing his thoughts on Luke 3:21-38
This Sunday is the First Sunday after the Epiphany – Epiphany falls on 6th January and traditionally is the day when we celebrate the visit of the Wise Men to see Jesus (and we usually take down our Christmas decorations!) On the First Sunday after Epiphany we think about John the Baptist and the baptism of Jesus. As we are working our way through the Gospel of Luke we will be reading Luke 3:1-20 at our morning service at 10:30am and Heston will be sharing his thoughts.
After the service, as it is the first Sunday of the month, we will be having a bring and share lunch together – do join us!
This Sunday is the third Sunday in Advent and is also known as Gaudete Sunday or Rose Sunday – you can read more on Wikipedia or by using Google. Gaudete is the Latin word for Rejoice, and that is exactly what we aim to do this Sunday as our children perform a nativity play that has been written by Rosa, one of the Kid’s Church.
This Sunday is the second Sunday in Advent, traditionally a time to think and reflect on prophets and their message that we need to change our ways as God’s Kingdom of Justice and Peace is near. Lois will be leading us in our worship, the Rev Hayley Matthews will be leading us in our celebration of the feast of life and Heston will be sharing his thoughts.
The readings for this Sunday are Psalm 23 and Matthew 11:28-30.
The weather forecast doesn’t look too good but we will have the heating on and there will be hot drinks and a warm welcome for everyone.
