Things we like

Christian faith should never be static.  If God calls us once, God keeps on calling us. We are on a continuous journey into God, to know more about ourslves, about our faith, about God, about what God is doing in the world.  On this page we will list and give information about resources that the people of the parish have found helpful in their journey of faith.

If you would like to make a submission for this page, please do so here, with the details of your resource and a short summary of what the resource is and why you found it helpful.

 

Title of resource: Center for Action and Contemplation www.cac.org
Submitted by: Alastair
This website is a great resource for reading about spirituality and contemplation. You can sign up for a daily email meditation written by Richard Rohr, or take online courses in spiritual disciplines.
I find it helpful as a daily reflection which enables me to reflect on my humanity in God, and God in humanity.

Please Sponsor a Slate for £10. Your civic landmark church needs you!

Praying for victims of terror



'In the midst of life we are in death.'

Lord, in a place of pleasure, terror struck, in a place of life, death came. Hold us in our shock and grief, comfort the distressed, heal the injured, calm the anxious, reunite the separated, console the bereaved, and give rest and everlasting peace to those who have died, for your love never fails and through the darkness your light always shines. Amen.

Our stewardship enables us to fulfil God's call and share in God's mission

The Church is the new creation, it is life and joy, it is the sacramental fellowship in which we share the ultimate purpose of God, made real for us now in our hearing the Word and sharing the Sacrament.
Rowan Williams
