Let down the nets for a catch

My daily reading one day last week was from Luke’s Gospel, in which he calls the first disciples. One day as Jesus was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret, the people were crowding around him and listening to the word of God. He saw at the water’s edge two boats, left there by the fishermen, who were washing their nets. He got into one of the boats, the one belonging…

Worship Workshop

As part of the pilgrimage of music taking place throughout the ministry area, St Edmund’s Church organised an afternoon led by Geoff Weaver, an internationally known church musician, who was Director of Studies and Outreach at the Royal School of Church Music 1994-2002, and directed the music at the 1998 Lambeth Conference. Music as an essential element in…

Claire’s Baptism

It was such a joy to witness Claire Thomas’ baptism, and her evident joy in the event. Claire said in her testimony: ‘This is a big day for me, I want to show the World that I love, I trust and have put my hope in Christ and confess my faith and commitment to him. I can bury my old life and walk my new life with God. I can then openly join those who believe.…

Nowhere to hide

Sometimes there is just nowhere to hide. If God is calling you, there can be no excuses because he knows you through and through and he knows what he wants from you. If you feel you haven’t the gifts, he will shower them upon you. If you haven’t the courage, he will hold you up. If you don’t know what to say, he will put the words in your mouth. As…

Rogation Sunday

Rogation Sunday is traditionally the day for beating the bounds – walking round the parish and praying for every aspect of life. This is what we do in a smaller way each year at Cwmdu, praying for the farming community, the crops and the livestock, and the people. This year we were blessed with fine weather and stood among the sheep, before moving on into the…

Imagine Church

We are beginning a conversation in our Ministry Area about how we can facilitate a new passion to see life and growth in our churches. We are looking for a way forward to help all our congregations to want to explore this in order that we may grow in numbers and in all the good qualities that we would hope for. So we have invited Rev. Jo Vickery, an Anglican cleric with…
