Sunday 24 October
Can you remember the useful things that you’ve been taught in life? I’ve learned a lot of things which have proved useful in my life, beginning with when I was very little, and learned to tie my shoelaces, and write a thank you letter.
As today is Bible Sunday, we have some extra resources from the Bible Society. These are short Bible verses, written with the intent that you can spend time reading, reflecting and praying with them. You can use the prayers which are written here, or your own prayers. Perhaps there is a piece of scripture which will resonate more strongly with you? If so, let God continue to draw you in and speak to you through it. You might also like to use these short pieces of scripture through the week to help you pray.
As well as our normal services today we will be holding Memorial Services at Saint Mary Magdalene (2.30pm) and All Hallows (4.00pm), each lasting around 40 mins. There will be an opportunity to hear the names of loved ones being read out.
A six week programme looking at environmental issues through a Christian lens. Every Wednesday, 7-8pm, starting on 13 October, via Zoom.

Plans to grow and develop the work of our churches in the parish over the next five years were announced at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting on 4 May 2021.
Our Environmental Policy
Our planet is facing a dramatic change in climate, which according to scientists the world over is a result of human action over the last 150 years, predominantly through the burning of fossil fuels to create energy.
As Christians we have a responsibility to take care of God's creation and the Parish Environmental Policy declares our commitment to do just that.
