Good Friday 2020

Mairwen Large leads a service for all the family and invites us to meet some of the characters from the story.

One more step along the world

One of the songs chosen for the baptism of baby Lucy was Sidney Carter’s One more step along the world I go. Mairwen reflects on baptism as the beginning of our journey of faith and how our faith sustains us.

The Grace of God

As Christians, we know that when we have done wrong we can repent and receive forgiveness from God; but we must also accept that we cannot always undo the damage that we have done. Mairwen explores this conflict between grace and guilt as she reflects on Psalm 32 and the story of Zaccheus.

Harvest 2019

Today marks the Harvest Festival and, while giving thanks for the changing of the seasons and God’s provision for our needs, it is also a time for looking outwards at the needs of the world around us. Today we focused on our CMS partners, Fiona and Joel Kelling in Jordan.

Transfiguration Sunday 2019

Luke’s gospel recounts the strange story of Jesus’ journey up the mountain with Peter, James and John, where he appears in blinding light with Moses and Elijah and the voice of God is heard from a cloud. Our own stories are much less dramatic but nevertheless important.

Simeon and Anna

At Candlemas we celebrate the presentation of the infant Jesus in the temple as told in Luke 2, and especially his welcome by two people, Simeon and Anna, who had been waiting faithfully for a lifetime to see the fulfilment of God’s promise through the prophets.

Epiphany 2019

It’s that time of year again, when we take down the Christmas tree and think about the visit of the Magi, and Herod’s role in the story. Who knew that Herod’s first wife was called … ? You’ll have to listen to find out!
