Brother James - Sponsored Cycle

From Brother James chaplain and teacher at SFX, you may also see him in the 6pm music group. Please support him if you can.

"This year I'm not doing a multi-day sponsored cycle, rather a one-day challenge of an ecumenical nature!

On Aug. 4th, I'm doing a 100 mile sponsored cycle on the 2012 Olympic Road Race route: the Prudential Ride London-Surrey 100 Sportive a few hours before the world's top professional riders race on a very similar circuit. I will be part of a team raising money for The Salvation Army (#TeamSally). In my case, I'll be riding for their mission in Rhyl, N. Wales, which is led by a musician friend of mine, Major Chris Davidson. I will be looking to complete the ride in between 6hrs-6hrs30, which for an amateur rider of my "profile" would be good going. Any donations would be very gratefully received. God bless. 🙏😇🚴‍♂

Here's the link for donating: 

"The Salvation Army provide unconditional friendship, support and very practical help to people in crisis and need and work with children, older people, homeless people, all adult victims of modern slavery and those dealing with drug and/or alcohol addiction." "

Marriage Matters Reflections for this week

A Reflection from Marriage Matters ( for this Sunday

Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time (Isaiah 66:10-14; Gal 6:14-18; Luke 10:1-12, 17-20)

Romance is at the core of our calling

The theme of today’s readings is rejoicing.  Those who have had to be away from home know the thrill of returning – the hug, the kiss and perhaps making love.  But when every day is much like any other, we can lose the spark and we need to remember that romance is at the very core of our calling.
