'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,......

Summer Term Cards

With all the snow we’ve had in recent weeks it’s hard to believe that summer is on its way! Whether rain or shine we’ll usher in the summer with our new morning and evening service series. The new summer term cards are now available, with details about what we are doing on Sundays across the parish for the next few months. The term card mainly talks about the Sunday services, and opportunities for us to get together in church as we worship, encourage each other, grow faith, and get......

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......

40 messages of love

As Lent 2018 begins – on Valentine’s day – we’re offering people a daily reminder of love and grace in the form of an email. We first did something like this a couple of months ago in the lead-in to Christmas, with 25 people writing a thought for the day, making a short video, or sending in a picture. Lent sees a similar approach, with “Forty Messages of Love” leading us from Valentine’s day to Holy Week, and through to Easter Day itself. If you’ve given us your email......

Jan 2018

I was in a meeting this week talking about some of the different people, and organisations, we get to support across the world. Thank you so much for your generosity, giving over £20k last year to support God’s work locally and further afield. I received an email from the Bible Society this morning,  one of the organisations we give regularly too. They’re amazing. It included this video about Bibles being brought to a remote tribe in West Papua. I must have seen it a dozen times, but still find......
