Sunday @ Seven is led by Nigel Silvester and Cath Hilton. It’s an opportunity to sing and pray in a more informal setting than the usual Sunday and weekday church services. Please join us on August 19th for a chance to sing some of your favourite songs.
The World Cup is full of many different stories and emotions and people have opinions about players and managers, fouls, penalties – you will hardly fail to get a reaction if you mention the World Cup in your local, even if it’s a negative one. Not many people are indifferent. And, because of the time and investment in all sorts of ways that people make in it, alongside the Olympics; it can rightly be classed as ‘The Greatest Event in the World.’
Jesus took to the sea and to the hills when he needed time to rest, to reflect on his life’s journey. We all need to do that and if we are able to spend a little time in different surroundings it really does help our perspective on where we are at. It doesn’t have to be a fortnight sailing around the Mediterranean – a day or two on retreat at Formby can be just as rewarding.
On Saturday June 30th we’ll be having a Coffee Morning and Book Fair. This will be in the hall from 10am – 12.30pm. Just turn up, no tickets needed. Then on Saturday July 7th the Scouts are having a cream tea from 2pm. Tickets £3.50 each.
In a suburb of Athens there is an orthodox monastery called Daphni. The church is laid out like most orthodox churches, in the shape of the cross. Over the top of the cross is a dome and within the dome is a marvellous mosaic. In the mosaic, Christ is depicted as Lord of the Universe, looking down over all. Wherever you are situated within the church His eyes seem to follow you. It’s rather unsettling!
Here are the Bible readings for July. 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.
