November is a month which highlights remembrance, remembering is important to our lives – recalling memories, remembering to take action and just the act of remembrance.On 11 November we hold our Remembrance Day Service at St Cassian’s at 10 am, concluding the service at The War Memorial, followed by a fly past. This year we will remember all those who gave their lives in time of war, especially those who, 100 years ago, took part in World War1.There will be other occasions for everyone to engage with during the month, something for all ages – The Chaddesley Corbett Parish Servicemen’s trail, Costumed enactors at Harvington Hall, a Silver Band concert, Afternoon Tea, Film Show and an event at the village school. I am sure that you will all have a copy of the programme of events.We will be remembering the commitment which took place in the whole parish to the war effort. We will remember and give thanks to God, we will claim his promise to look down in love on all his people, living and departed and that he will hold forever all those who suffered during times of war and conflict. We will remember those who acted with kindly compassion, those who bravely risked or gave their own lives for their comrades and our freedom, those whose stories are unspoken and untold.How wonderful it is that we have a God and heavenly father who is loving, who loved us so much that he sent his son, Jesus Christ into our world, to die for us.He is a God who is compassionate, a God who brings complete peace. As Christians we seek to follow Gods commandments as Jesus said – (John 15 v.12 -17): ‘This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you’.Jesus then reminds us that we are chosen and called and he will love and support us as we seek to follow his commands.May God bless us as we join in the act of Remembrance, may we in the recalling of memories , remember God’s love and show the love to others that has been given to us.Christine (Hickman-Smith)LLM St Cassian’s Kidderminster East Team

At Bromsgrove we offer worship in a variety of styles, mostly informal, always including readings from the Bible which will be explained and applied to today, songs and hymns some from the days of the Wesleys and many written in the last few years. Currently the majority of Sunday mornings singing is led by an organ but at least once a month by a worship band of different instruments and vocalists. During the week there are opportunities to join smaller groups to read, discuss and pray for each other. We offer God’s love in word and actions on site (see weekly diary); in homes (through for example Crosslinks Befriending) and in the community often in partnership with other Christian churches – for example Street Pastors. If you come to a Sunday Service or week day activity we hope you will feel welcome. The church is committed to a Safeguarding Policy for children and vulnerable adults, has access for wheel chair users, T loop for audibly impaired people and large print word version of all that is needed in worship. (most of what we sing and say is projected on to screens).Oaks Community ChurchThe Oaks Community Church meets at ‘The Oaks’ Community Centre at Harvington (on the main A 450, close to Mustow Green traffic island).The church meets every Sunday morning at 10:30am and every Friday evening at 7:30pm.
