Spiritual Life

St. Cassian, Church of England

Progress   –   Well   we   are   making   progress   in   the   search   for   a   new   Team Rector   –   The   post   is   advertised   and   we   now   await   response   to   that   and   we look forward to sharing future updates with you all. Please   continue   to   remember   and   pray   for   all   those   involved   in   that process   and   Robert   Legge   our   Team   Vicar   and   all   who   are   continuing   to support our churches at this time of vacancy. Progress   too   with   the   planned   refurbishment   and   repair   of   our   church organ.   After   some   delay   in   the   proposed   timings   for   this   –   work   will   be underway   soon,   in   the   first   week   of   July.   There   are   more   details   in   an   article in   this   magazine,   please   read   it   and   be   reassured.   We   greatly   appreciate   the generosity of so many that have made this work possible. We   are   holding   a   Church   Fete   this   year   on   Saturday   8   June   and   we would   really   value   your   support.   Susie   and   Clare   our   Churchwardens   will   be delighted   to   accept   donations   to   stalls,   but   most   of   all   your   support   on   the day.   We   look   forward   to   this   being   a   great   day   in   the   village   of   sharing friendship, successful fundraising and having fun. The   ‘icing   on   the   cake’   that   weekend   would   be   to   see   a   full   church   to celebrate   Whit   Sunday   on   9th   June   –   9.30   am   Worship   for   All   and   6.30pm Evensong.   It   is   a   day   when   we   celebrate   the   Church’s   Birthday!   The   Spirit   of God   was   poured   out   on   those   first   Christian   disciples   and   what   happened   was that   ordinary   people   like   Andrew,   Simon,   Philip,   James,   or   like   you   and   me were   enabled   to   become   more   like   Jesus,   as   Christs   Holy   Spirit   is   given   to   his disciples.   How   humbling   and   special   is   that!   There   is   no   limit   to   how   this happens   but   we   can   be   confident   that   progress   and   change   is   enriched   –   we can    become    more    like    Jesus.    We    can    be    transformed    by    that    love    and empowered   by   the   Holy   Spirit   relying   on   Gods   guidance   to   take   us   forward into   the   unknown   future   –   that   all   will   be   well,   that   all   will   fuse   together   as   we are empowered and enabled transformed by Love of God and of each other. Let’s celebrate together – We look forward to welcoming you! Christine

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.
