MASSES WEEKDAY - Please see Bulletin page on website   SATURDAY - 10.00 am From Easter to October the Saturday morning Mass is held in the Georgean Chapel at Harvington Hall. From November to Easter Mass is Held at St Mary's Church   SUNDAY -   8.30 am  Mass                     10.30 am  Sung Mass During the early part of the 10.30am Mass a Children's Liturgy is held in the upper room of The Stable attached to the church.  Children of all ages are most welcome.  A catechist prepares children for their First Holy Communion and Confirmation.  (All staff on this team are CRB cleared and safeguard officers)
Methodist Circuit 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 Godís 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 Ė 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.

The new stained-glass window in the Lady Chapel commemorating Rosemary Brinton-Butler founder and producer of many dramas and musicals of a religious or philosophical nature which were performed in St. Cassian between 1950 and 2010.
The Many Rooms of Heaven One    of    our    favourite    pastimes    as    a    couple    is    to    go traipsing     around     stately     homes     and     National     Trust properties   both   locally   and   slightly   further   afield.   Both   of us   like   nothing   more   than   to   wander   through   the   houses room   by   room,   out   into   the   gardens   (usually   designed   by Capability   Brown)   and   finish   off   at   the   coffee   shop   for   the obligatory     Cappuccino,     Earl     Grey     Tea     and     Victoria sponge. From   time   to   time   as   I   wander   through   these   buildings,   I am reminded of these words of Jesus from John 14 v 2; My   Father's   house   has   many   rooms;   if   that   were not   so,   would   I   have   told   you   that   I   am   going   there to prepare a place for you? Sometimes     it     can     be     hard     to     square     the     elderly, occasionally   decrepit   room   that   I   am   standing   in   with   the vision    of    Heaven    mentioned    in    this    passage,    however there   are   many   other   times   when   the   room   in   which   we are    standing    is    simply    breath-taking    and    Jesus’    words suddenly   seem   to   come   to   life   in   this   context.   Heaven described   as   a   room   in   all   its   majesty   and   splendour, built and designed by God for His followers to live in. Christians   have   sometimes   been   criticised   for   being   “so heavenly   minded   that   they   are   no   earthly   good”,   however I   can’t   help   but   wonder   whether   the   problem   is   exactly the    opposite.    Perhaps    if    we    took    the    idea    of    Heaven more   seriously   (especially   the   idea   revealed   in   this   verse that    God    in    His    love    wishes    for    us    to    join    Him    there eternally)   and   took   time   to   think   through   the   implications of   that,   it   might   have   a   radical   influence   on   how   we   treat both God’s creation and His people in the here and now. “Heaven   is   where   God   is.”   So   many   of   us   were   taught when   we   were   children.   Maybe   we   can   have   a   foretaste of   Heaven   in   our   village   community   as   we   learn   what   it means    to    radically    love    one    another    as    God    in    Christ loves us.
