Bishop Lusa hosted this great event...
It's all about making a difference where you are. Everybody's little bit of goodness will change our world! We are hoping create a Net Zero Carbon Page here soon - so keep a look out!
Sundays at 9.30am...
We meet together to celebrate our faith, encourage each other, share a simple commemoration of Jesus gift of his life for his creation in bread and wine, and pray for our community and our world.
Do join us as we explore the life of Jesus and his actions and ask ourselves what they can mean for us today.
The Annunciation, on the corner of Carlton Avenue East and Windermere Avenue.
Everyone is most welcome from all walks of life.
Come and feel safe and at home and stay for a cuppa and a conversation afterwards.
Hi. I'm Jacqui and I help to provide a space that helps our children to feel part of the worship while being able to enjoy quiet activities. We have an open area at the back of the church, and you are welcome to use it and sit with your children there and still enjoy the service, if you need to.
The long term impact of the pandemic means we haven't been able to offer Junior church just now, especially in terms of availability of staff. Children are, however, welcome to sit with their parents and we keep the service with a comfortable level of informality. They are welcome to bring books and quiet activities and use the creche area at the back of the church. Please help them to join in as much as they can. We are praying for the time when we can offer Junior Church again.
We have a heart for sharing God's love with children that nurtures their own spiritual journey, and continue to pray for the gift of those who share that vision of encouraging children and their families so that we can better reach out to and provide for our local families.
Would you like to belong to a church community but don't really know where to start?
Why not pop along to one of our once a month coffee mornings or join us after church from around 10.15am for a cuppa and a chat in the church hall? You can also pop into the church and see what it's like. We're really happy to chat with you about the church and our faith. You can also view our current services on line (see above). know that you'll always receive a warm welcome.
Looking forward to meeting you soon.
if you would like to contribute to the ongoing work of our community here in South Kenton please follow the instructions here to the right of this notice.
With our thanks :)
A prayer for the people of Grenfell & all in a place of loss, worry and fear in Ukraine and neighbouring countries...
Father of all... We continue to remember the friends, family and neighbours, who continue to feel so keenly the loss of loved ones as a result of the Grenfell Tower fire on 14th June 2017.
(for latest information visit https://www.grenfelltowerinquiry.org.uk)
We also add to this the many, many families facing ongoing loss and particularly we remember the people of Ukraine.
We add to this our prayers for parents who have lost children, including those who recently lost their lives in the ice in Solihull.
We are thankful that Jesus did not run away from pain and disaster - his own or those around him.
Jesus, because you faced everything we face we know that you understand what loss and all the pain that goes with it feels like. Be with everyone on their individual journey, bring them your peace where there are no answers and may your love soothe every area of pain they are experiencing and the hope of a brighter tomorrow.
We ask that in the words of Corrie Ten Boom, they would 'never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.' Amen.
Lots of questions about the Christian faith?...about prayer, what difference faith makes, and where Jesus Christ fits with it all? Or just feel like you've been round the block with it all already and need a fresh injection of inspiration and enthusiasm?
This slot will be updated once a term with a short film that explores what makes the Christian faith something worth taking a fresh look at - whether you consider yourself a Christian or not.
As we begin the journey into 2023 the well known Pastor, Tim Keller, who is currently walking through his own personally difficult times with cancer, shares with us some of his reflections about what prayer actually is and how we can learn to do it. He uses the book of the Psalms in sharing some thoughts to meditate on, in this short time. Our prayer is that this is inspirational to you wherever you are or aren't on your faith journey. May you find inspiration for your journey today.
Just click on the brown button Tim Keller: Discovering how to pray to enjoy this talk. If you need to ask questions about what you watch and hear in this clip feel free to contact us by clicking on the 'contact us' button and we'll respond. God bless .
