I just wanted to let you know what is happening to follow up on what came out of the weekend away when we focused on who God is calling us to be and what he is calling us to do. We have already been acting on some of the things that came out of our time together:
- We went carol singing around more of the parish this years to connect with more of our neighbours
- We are doing a sermon series on worship to help us reflect on this important subject as we think about our services
- We are starting a new monthly prayer meeting (click here for more details) to give us more time to pray together and seek God’s will for us as a church family.
The PCC are holding an awayday on 9th February to look at more practical steps, including the difficult subject of what we are being called to prune so we may be more fruitful. The planning group has already met to help plan this day.
Do continue to pray as together we seek God’s answer to the critical question of what does it mean for us to be the body of Christ in this place at this time! Do share anything you feel God is saying to you about this; you can speak to me or to Chris or Tony as our churchwardens.
with love and prayers
