Sunday 5th July
Sunday’s service is a zoom service. It is a slightly shortened traditional Holy Communion so please have some bread and wine/grape juice with you at the start of the service. If you would like to take part please email firstname.lastname@example.org
SacREd SpaceOur SacREd Space service is looking at the issues that surround the Black Lives Matter Movement and the significance of Silence, both good and bad. It is clearly an emotive subject but we have a deep commitment that contemplation and silence should not be an end in itself but help us to engage and connect more fully and humanely with our world, ourselves and each other; that contemplation and action should go together and that it is good to balance the two. The service is around 40 minutes and will involve 8 minutes and 46 seconds of silence during the service primarily as an act of solidarity with and for all those who have suffered systemic and/or personal racism both past and present. We hope you will join us in this act of solidarity. Finally I would like to thank Dave T-R for providing the music at the start and end of the service.Here is the link to our SacREd Space Service,After this we are taking a ‘wee’ break over the summer and will resume in September. So a big thank you for all of you who have taken time out to listen, watch and attend our services this year. We hope they have renewed, restored, challenged and inspired.We wish you a hopeful & peace filled summer. Stay well.Lots of Love from all the teamIain x, Adrian x, Anesia x, Heather x, Fiona W x & Mon x
The prayer follows the usual compline pattern but this time we have left a 5 minute space for people to choose their own reading and reflection so that the service can be used nightly. It provides a lovely peaceful ending of the day for me and I’m hoping it might do the same for some of you:

Many Thanks, Iain
We are just round the corner from the Crosspool shops, and here to welcome all who come through our doors, whether for a church service, for Lunch Club, a keep fit class or one of the many other activities that take place in our building.
As a community we endeavour to:
- be an inclusive church which celebrates human diversity and welcomes all.
- create a space where people can grow in their faith, can question and discover the sacred in life through openness, struggle, laughter, prayer and worship.
- support one another through mutual care and hospitality.
- be alert to the needs of our local community and the wider world, having a commitment to be in solidarity with those who are marginalised and isolated.
- celebrate life in all its fullness and cherish creation.
We don’t manage it all the time, so when we stumble and fall, we pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and try again.
