I wonder how much you enjoyed your evening meal on Wednesday, April 9th2003?Did it taste good, or was it a meal best forgotten? Did you eat it in your homewith family members or were you out that evening at a restaurant? Most importantly of all, did the wine compliment the food to perfection?Let me take a guess, you simply can’t remember!From time to time I hear people saying that they cannot remember the vast majority of the Church services they have attended over the years and they wonder if the services have done them much good, indeed, were they even worth attending? I have to confess to feeling some degree of sympathy with this thinking; even as a vicar I can’t remember the sermon I preached a mere two weeks ago!However going back to my opening question, although you may not necessarily remember the meal you had on that particular date, nevertheless you must have had a meal on that day and on many days before and since, otherwise you would not be reading this article now! We eat food day after day after day in order to stay fit and healthy. Chances are we don’t remember the overwhelming majority of meals that we have, however if we didn’t have them, we would be in a very sorry state!To say that we can be good Christians without attending Church regularly is like saying that we can remain healthy without feeding ourselves. As any Doctor will tell you, it’s impossible!We are now into the month of September and this tends to be the time of the year where various activities and groups start up once again for another season.Can I therefore give an invitation to any of you who perhaps haven't been to Church for a long time, if ever, to our services at Saint Cassian’s Church everySunday morning at 9.30 am. You would be assured of a very warm welcome and a real sense of belonging in a family of people who love both God and their neighbours in a very warm and practical way.By the way, I loved my evening meal on Wednesday, April 9th 2003. It was my 40th birthday and I was in a lovely French restaurant in Central London with some really good friends. Sometimes both good meals and good Church services really are memorable!Robert Legge(Team Vicar, Parish of Kidderminster East)

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.
