Change=challenge=opportunity.Times of change can be very unsettling and can be the cause of stress and worry. Things that have remained the same feel under threat and the whole situation can become overwhelming.There are many changes ahead for us at St Cassian’s.Firstly, we have said goodbye to Rev Hugh Burton and are now beginning the process of seeking to appoint his successor. We will be working with the other churches within the Kidderminster East team and hope to be in a position to advertise the post very shortly. In the meantime we will be supported by Rev. Robert Legge and our Lay Minister Christine Hickman-Smith as they work together to maintain our weekly pattern of worship.We are most grateful to Christine and to Beth Richards for all they do to lead our worship. We will also be supported by the diocese and are looking forward to welcoming Archdeacon Nicki Groarke who will lead our Easter Day Communion service.During the last year we have faced the challenge of raising money to repair our beautiful pipe organ. This has been hard work but has presented us with so many opportunities to meet together and to have fun whilst raising money.We hope that our organ builders, Nicholson’s and Co will be removing the bent pipes and taking them to their factory in Malvern for repair at the end of this month. The organ will be out of action for a few months but this will offer the opportunity to have a digital organ in church. A huge thank you to all who have supported this project.The followers of Jesus faced change and the most challenging of times duringthe death and resurrection of their friend and saviour. For them nothing wouldbe the same and the road they travelled was a difficult one. Even during their darkest times they knew that they were loved; they stuck together and eventually light overcame darkness and Jesus rose from the dead.Let us follow their lead and trust that all will be well. God loves us all and will be with us on our own difficult journeys. Whatever path you are on; whether it is a challenging one, an exciting one or one of discovery, know that God is there beside you and you are never alone.Wishing you all a blessed and very Happy Easter,Clare and Susie - Church Wardens

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.
