Discipleship MOT

Every year we take our cars in for an MOT to check they are still roadworthy and to identify any issues that need attending to, and many of us will have a health check-up too, to see if we have any physical problems which need attention. But what about our spiritual health? How often do we stop and review how we are doing as a follower of Jesus? This Lent we are offering everybody the chance of such a check-up through our ‘Discipleship MOT.’ The MOT is largely based......

Soul Purpose once again offered a Christmas lunch with all the trimmings, together with much more, at the Trinity Centre – Fi Iddon (10.45) who was one of those organising the event, reflects on Soul Purpose Christmas 2013. It’s always both a pleasure and a struggle to report back on Soul Purpose Christmas… a pleasure because the day has so many highlights, but it’s often a struggle to attempt to articulate these! Perhaps part of the struggle comes because the greatest joy is one of a loving atmosphere –......

Managing Conflict on our front line

Have you ever had to handle conflict at your work place or other front line?  How easy did you find it?  I suspect many will read the above with an uncomfortable feeling.  Conflict is a normal part of most of our working lives, and, handled well, it can be creative and energising.  However, handled badly, it can lead to stress, pain and do huge damage to both individuals and organisations. Most of us, if we are honest, don’t find managing or handling conflict easy.   If we are really honest,......

Gravetalk?

“I think I’d like that hymn at my funeral!” Grandma’s voice suddenly seemed to pierce the air, as the family sat playing Rummikub in front of Songs of Praise.  No-one seemed to know what to say in response to this sudden intrusion into their game, and “Have another cup of tea, Grandma …” was all that anyone, discomforted by her remark, could offer. What if Grandma really did want to talk about her funeral?  What if any of us wants to have that conversation that just doesn’t feel very......

Just under 300 people from across Shropshire gathered together for “Shropshire Light” on Saturday 16th November at Holy Trinity Meole Brace. George Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, was the keynote speaker. Addressing the full church he spoke of how the Church “can grow, will grow and must grow”, and how that happens at the hands of men and women whose hearts are touched by the power of God. He challenged men and women of churches from across Shropshire to “appreciate and re-imagine the Church”, and of the life-transforming......

Ringing out...

After a break of at least twenty years, Holy Trinity is planning to start regular bell ringing again. The church has a peal of eight bells, the oldest dating back to 1641, and whilst they are rung regularly for weddings, there has been no band of ringers to call the faithful to worship on Sundays for many years. However, Michael Carding, an experienced bell ringer, has recently joined one of the congregations at the church and is gathering together people who would like to learn the art of campanology.......
