God of small things

One of my favourite books in Arundhati Roy’s novel called The God of Small Things. It is sometimes the small stories that matter most. And this week we are considering two parables about small things – mustards seeds and yeast. Your stories matter – however small. Do come along and join us.

Stories & seeds

This week we begin to explore the parables of Luke’s gospel, starting with one of the most well known – the parable of the sower. We’ll look at what a parable is … and what this particular parable might mean. Do come along and join us.

Our Stories Matter

Happy New Year everyone. Once again we’re going to begin the year by exploring a gospel and this year it is the turn of Luke. We’re going to look especially at the many parables that Jesus tells in that gospel and how those stories relate to our own stories.

The title for this series in ‘Our Stories Matter’ and reminds us that very often Jesus used the stories of ordinary lives to explain to his followers how much God cares for them and that his kingdom is to be found in the simple things.

Leftovers

In case you were wondering … there will be a short service tomorrow morning. A circle of chairs, some singing, some prayers, a Bible reading and our reflections on the year gone by. Bring yourself. You are enough.

Beer & Carols

On Sunday afternoon we’re going to gather for our annual sing-song at the Bluebell Pub on Barlow Road. Our carol singing will start at 4pm for about an hour. Do come along!

In the morning we’ll have a very simple service – away from all the festive fuss – as we WAIT for our coming king.

**NATIVITY SPECIAL** While Shepherds Watched

This Sunday is really going to be very special as Inspire Church performs its own nativity musical – While Shepherds Watched. Featuring a cast of just about everyone – young and old – complete with shepherd outfits and fine voices we will worship the coming saviour with a performance like no other. If you’ve got winter blues or general election grief you really won’t want to miss this.

And it will all be followed by FESTIVE FINGER FOOD – if you feel you can bring something simple to share then we’ll have a lovely Christmas feast to follow our musical.

Watching & waiting. Come and join the fun.

From generation to generation

This advent we are in ‘waiting’ mode – trying to take time out to avoid all the Christmas hype and simply ‘wait upon the Lord’. So it’ll be a quiet service of reflection while the children (and quite a few adults) hold their dress rehearsals for next week’s nativity musical.

Join us for the waiting time.

Wait!

The shops are positively begging us to leap into Christmas and who would blame anyone for looking forward to some festive fun? But advent is a time for waiting. Waiting for good news. Waiting for the longest night. Waiting for the Light of the World.

Join us for the waiting time.

Olives & Endings

So our series on protest is drawing to a close but we finish with a flourish as we think about the Israel-Palestine conflict and the protest of our very own Roz Hughes who recently travelled out to pick olives and stand in solidarity with the Palestinian farmers of the West Bank.

It is also the end of our church year, so we will be celebrating the past 12 months – DO BRING A MEMORY OR A PICTURE OR AN OBJECT TO SHARE!
