The Book of Joshua on Sunday mornings

You may not find yourself planning a major military campaign any time soon. Or needing instructions on how to cross a river, take a city or divide up land. And as for the chapter on circumcision… This autumn in our morning services we’re going to be taking a look through the book of Joshua. It was a few months ago when we read through most of the book again in our morning daily prayer times, and it struck us how pertinent many of those passages are to us as God’s people today. Joshua begins at a time of change and transition; Moses is dead, but there is much to be done! We see a nation in transition, a community in search of a home, and a people seeking to......

'Sharing your faith' Course to return by popular demand

Due to popular demand our ‘Sharing your faith course will be running again! Starting on Wednesday 03 September from19:30 until 21:30 this we will run for five consecutive weeks in the Trinity Centre. The course is designed to help individuals to recognise the barriers that may have held them back from having a conversation about their personal relationship with Christ and equipping them to step over them. Feedback from previous courses shows that those participating have found ‘a new impetus to share their faith’; with a regained or ‘new level of self confidence’ and they have now found the courage to step out and not only talk about their faith at a new level but also to invite friends, neighbours and complete strangers alike along to existing church events.......

Discipleship Central: Learning to be open to the Spirit

It was really encouraging to see so many members of our congregations join together in June for our first ever ‘Discipleship Central’ with John McGinley (vicar of Holy Trinity Leicester) John spoke on ‘receiving and releasing the Holy Spirit’ and very clearly and simply helped us to see more of what it means to be ‘open to the presence, guidance and power of the Holy Spirit’ in our lives. John particularly talked about the Holy Spirit being within us like a ‘river’ not a ‘lake’ – the Holy Spirit is not simply given to us for our own pleasure and blessing, but so that we can be channels of God’s transforming power, flowing out of us into our communities. He particularly identified three ways we can be more open......

Reflections on Cefn Lea

These are some of my reflections on Cefn Lea – your reflections may be very different of course and so we do look forward to reading all your feedback forms! My overall impression of Cefn Lea was that it was an immensely enjoyable weekend, and as I went around and talked to people there, I’m pretty sure that most (if not everyone!) would agree with me on that! For one thing, the weather was absolutely amazing…how the campers must have praised the Lord for the good weather! The site looked beautiful among the rolling Welsh hills, and doing one of the walks on the Saturday afternoon gave me and those on the walk a fine sight of distant mountain and hill ranges! (I am now in awe of Charles......
