'Remembrance 100'

On Sunday, 4th August 1918, four years after the declaration of World War One, King George V and Queen Mary joined members of the House of Commons and the House of Lords for a special service at the Church of Saint Margaret, in Westminster. The King had asked that 4 August 1918 should be observed as a National Day of Prayer – and 100 days later the war ended! On Saturday 4th August 2018 churches around the country, and across the spectrum of denominations, start 100 days of prayer,......

Reflections on Study leave - Phil Cansdale

This last month has seen me take four weeks of “study leave”, with the usual opportunities for refreshment, development and leadership learning. Thank you so much to colleagues – and to the church as a whole – for the blessing that this has been. I’ve been able to spend time on retreat, on a “conflict management” course, work shadowing the Dean of Wells Cathedral, and doing a bit of reading on church planting. Please do read the attached if you’d like to find out a little bit more about......

'Thy Kingdom Come' Pentecost Prayer Walk

On Pentecost Sunday a group of us from the 1045am service at Holy Trinity walked out of the church before the service ended – including the vicar! Emblazoned with the logo ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ we spent the rest of the day walking through the estates, busy roads, lanes and fields of Shropshire, headed for Telford. Others joined us along the way from Trinity Churches and other local congregations, including the Bishop of Lichfield, and we prayed at various points along the way, asking for God’s Kingdom to come here in our county, bringing fulfilment, health,......

Lent 2018 and the journey of prayer

A vicar friend of mine used to say “why is that our busiest two times of year both involve donkeys.” By that, I mean Christmas, and Easter! As we journey from one to the other, it feels like we’ve only just put the Christmas decorations up in the loft, and we’re already beginning to think about all things Easter. 40 days – plus Sundays – to go.  Anyone ready? Lent can be an amazing time to be doing just that. I don’t think it’s only about “giving up”, or......
