We meet together to share communion, sing hymns, hear the word of God and say our prayers. Like pieces of coal in a fire, being joined with each other helps us live out our Christian faith as part of a loving community.
Here are the Bible readings for June. So if you can’t get to Church and want to follow the same scripture passages then here you go. Or if you just want to read up in advance for the Sunday to come, then please make use of below.
Geoff Stokes began his journey to incarceration aged eight. A year later he joined Elmwood in Handsworth Wood, Birmingham. John Stratton, a Peaky Blinders-like figure, became a very big influence in Geoff’s life. John is still at large in the South Staffordshire area, so be careful!
The first Saturday in May is now established as ‘Benefice Boundary Walk Day’. Or it has for us! Over the last couple of years we have also linked this Benefice Walk with the ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ global prayer initiative.
Sunday @ Seven is led by Nigel Silvester, our Authorised Lay Minister, and Cath Hilton. Plus anyone else they can ‘volunteer’ on the night. It’s an opportunity to sing and pray in a more informal setting than the usual Sunday and weekday church services.
