“Dear Everyone.”Having a lovely time - weather great - good food - wife going shopping - off to the beach this afternoon - wish you were here.”A typical holiday postcard which we’ve been sending ever since John P. Charlton first patented the postcard in 1861, in Philadelphia. Of course, since postcards are .. postcard size .. it’s impossible for the sender to give a full and accurate account of everything they’ve done on holiday (and even less possible if they Tweet). A brief summary must suffice. Mark 12. 28-31 tells of a man who asks Jesus for a condensed reply. What he gets is so important that we quote it in full at the beginning of our services. “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.The second is this - You shall love your neighbour as yourself.”Heart, soul, mind, strength; there is nothing that’s left out - we are called to love God with every part of our being - and then to love some one else as much as we do ourselves.Over the centuries there have been some discussions (and disagreements) as to what the Christian Faith is fundamentally about; however, we surely must take Jesus’ words seriously and at face value as we try to follow Him in our everyday lives.And so I suggest that we promise Him to commit to loving God completely .. and our neighbours also.That’s exactly how He loves us !Revd.

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.
