Platinum Jubilee Year service

Platinum Jubilee Year service

On the anniversary of her accession on 6 February, Her Majesty celebrates 70 years as our Queen.

We’d like to celebrate at both churches by inviting you to come wearing a hat, (the more extravagant the better!) and/or to come dressed in red, white and blue.

At St Mary’s this will be our All Age Service and at St John’s too, families are welcome to come and celebrate the beginning of this Platinum Jubilee year.

Candlemas

Candlemas

The season of Epiphany and therefore Christmas, comes to a close at Candlemas.

The revealing of the baby Jesus as the light of the world by the visit of the Magi, is now brought into its fullest meaning as he is presented in the Temple at six weeks old and is recognised as the promised Messiah by the prophets Simeon and Anna. He is both the fulfilment of the Old Covenant and the beginning of the New – no longer just for one nation or peoples but for the whole world. The Feast of Candlemas then, celebrates this completion and yet at the same time, is an enlarging and opening up of our understanding of God’s purposes. As such, it is a Feast at which the whole church family gathers and people of all ages share together in lighting candles – always in a worship a sign and reminder of Jesus Christ, the Light of the World.

New Year – New Beginnings

New Year – New Beginnings

Michelle writes:

It‘s been an enormous privilege and joy to share with you all in the life of our Benefice and to be able to bring us together in service of our community and in praise of God and in love for one another, to effect some healing and help us find our calling together. I have absolutely loved my time with you all and will find it very hard indeed to say farewell – luckily I am not going to be so far away!

Despite the challenges of Covid, we are in a very different, happier and more secure place than we were three years ago and so much has happened and grown during that time and will continue to do so. We can now plan and prepare for what will be a new and exciting chapter ahead. In meantime it is very much business as usual, the rest of our Advent journey to continue and Christmas to celebrate. Let‘s make these next three months the best part yet!
