Spiritual Life

St. Cassian, Church of England

"A dog is for life and not just for Christmas" How   often   we   hear   this   phrase   but   do   we   really   think   about   what   it means?   Throughout   our   lives   we   make   commitments   to   our   families,   friends and   careers.   Likewise   in   church   we   stand   and   make   promises   to   God   at baptisms, weddings and each week when we recite the creed. "God is for all days and not just Sundays!" Being   a   Christian   is   not   just   about   going   to   church   services   but   is about   showing   God's   love   to   all   in   the   way   we   live   out   our   everyday   lives.   In the words of the hymn, "In all I think and speak and do" Last   month   we   were   fortunate   to   have   the   retired   Archdeacon   of   Bath, Andy   Pigott,   lead   our   morning   service.   He   also   spoke   to   us   about   love   and how we show love to those around us. St   Cassian's   is   a   beautiful   building   and   seen   by   so   many   as   they   pass through   the   village   but   the   "church"   is   more   than   just   the   building,   it   is   the people   within   it.   We   are   a   dedicated,   welcoming   congregation   and   are   actively working   to   take   our   church   out   into   the   community.   We   hope   that   many   of you   have   been   touched   by   our   Random   Acts   of   Kindness,   our   Share   and   Care coffee   mornings   and   Open   the   Book   at   the   local   Primary   School.   The   building is   not   just   for   Sundays   either.   We   welcome   groups   including   Chaddesley Voices,   visiting   choirs,   bell   ringers   and   concerts.   Have   YOU   ever   been   inside our   church?   It   is   always   open   and   you   are   more   than   welcome   to   go   inside and look around and use our lovely colourful guide book. We   feel   that   St   Cassian's   has   changed   and   evolved   considerably   over the   past   few   years   and   has   become   much   more   outward   looking.   The   joy which   we   now   experience   in   our   church   community   is   shown   through   a feeling   of   true   fellowship   and   love.   It   is   about   being   there   for   one   another,   not just   once   a   week   on   a   Sunday   but   at   all   times.   May   we   continue   to   grow   in our endeavours. Clare and Susie your Churchwardens

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 Church The 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. Refreshments are also available after the services.
