Spit and mud

This week’s encounter is between Jesus and a man born blind. It’s a strange story involving spit and mud but also questions, disbelief and celebration. Once again, we’ll explore the story through narrative. And we’ll share communion together as it’s the fourth Sunday in the month.

More than enough …

This week’s encounter is with a little boy. A little boy who dared to share his loaves and fish. It’s a story of surprise. It’s a story of abundance.

And we’ll celebrate Church Action on Poverty Sunday too.

It’s not that we don’t believe your story …

In a week where we celebrate a landmark in the history of gender equality, and in a year when the #metoo campaign has shone a light on contemporary mysogyny, how timely that we should turn to another Jesus story that highlights power relationships between men and women.

The story of the "woman caught in adultery" has persistently perplexed a patriarchal church with commentators performing theological somersaults to interpret Jesus’ apparent moral latitude. As we meet on Sunday to explore the story once again, let us join Jesus in crouching down and meeting one another face to face as fellow strugglers on a path marked ‘forgiveness’.

No bucket

No bucket – This Sunday Jesus meets the Samaritan Woman. It is an intriguing encounter involving buckets, husbands and living water … and it stands in some contrast to the discussion Jesus had with Nicodemus. 10.30. Sunday. All welcome!

Dialogue in the Dark

This Sunday Jesus meets Nicodemus. The encounter takes place in the dark of night and the character seems a shady leader – perhaps more comfortable at Davos or "charity dinners". How does Jesus talk with him? You’ll have to come along and find out! (We’ll have breakfast communion too.)

Abundant Lives

Happy New Year!

This Sunday we will be beginning our new series as we journey through the Gospel of John. Between now and Easter, each Sunday we will explore a different encounter between Jesus and the men and women he met along the way. What do these encounters teach us about the character of Jesus? What can we learn about ourselves and our own relationship with him? And what can we learn about God’s abundant generosity as we try to follow him?

This Sunday we will begin with an introduction to the new series and an opportunity to explore our church motto for 2018.

Christmas calm

After two very busy but very special Sundays, the fourth Sunday in advent will be an opportunity for us to find calm as Christmas Eve chaos whirls around us. It will be a short service of quiet reflection and prayer as we light candles and dig deep to remember some of the earliest Christmas traditions within the Christian faith.

10.30 – 11.30am
Sunday

And then on Christmas Day (Monday) we’ll have a short but special celebration service with the usual Christmas Quiz, lots of carols and festive fun. All this will be at the slightly earlier time of 10-11am … before the Inspired People’s Project arrive to do their special Christmas lunch for older people.

10-11am
Christmas Day!

Everybody’s welcome here!

Advent Extravaganza

The third Sunday in Advent is cause for a double celebration: an advent extravaganza.

Our morning service will see the culmination of the last few weeks of rehearsals when our drama groups and scratch choir finally take to the proverbial stage. Who knows what entertainment and inspiration that will hold … and perhaps more importantly, how God will choose to speak to us through all their imagination and hard work.

10.30 – 11.30
Sunday

Everybody’s welcome here!

And then in the afternoon, we are all invited to gather at The Bluebell Pub on Barlow Road where we will join friends from all around Levy for "Beer & Carols".

4-5pm … more details below …
