Paraclesis: our new sermon series

We will be starting our sermon and life group series, Paraclesis: Journeying Together on 24th February. This series, developed by CWR, “encourages people to come alongside others who are struggling with life’s challenges. It offers the Church a fresh perspective on pastoral care and journeying together – the way that God journeys alongside us.”

Our aim as a Church family is to challenge ourselves afresh, grow spiritually and re-invigorate our daily lives so that they truly reflect the journey we are on with Jesus.  This season of teaching will help us to dig deeper into the gospel and give us practical, usable ways in which we can live out the life we have been inspired to live by Jesus’s story.

We all long to be fired up, passionate, caring people, shining out the love of God to all we meet, but sometimes it can be hard to know how to do so, in an appropriate way.  Therefore over the course of this six week series we intend to journey together, affirming one another, and encouraging each other’s endeavours so we can truly answer such questions as ‘Who Cares?’ with ‘We Care’; backing those words up with actions inspired by God’s heart for our community.

Each Sunday’s sermon teachings will be followed up by the Life Groups that week and there will be an Open Group at the Vicarage on Thursday evenings starting 28th Feb from 7.30-9pm. Please speak to Natasha if you would like to join in.
