A reminder we are now considering the second focus that emerged from the consultation, namely “Sharing the mission of Jesus”. Once again we invite all who have something to contribute to place their thoughts and ideas in the Synod Box near the entrance to the Lady Chapel and our reps will process these.
The following video has some reflections on the theme of Sharing the Mission of Jesus
The questions we are asked to reflect on are
- How do we more effectively evangelise and lead people to a deeper relationship with Jesus?
- How do we show the compassionate love of Jesus in our work for justice, peace, and the integrity of creation, in our acts of charity and our works of mercy?
- How can the parish rise to the challenge of sharing the mission of Jesus?
- How can we equip people to be the presence of Jesus at work, at home, and in the street?
Marriage Matters Reflections for this week
A Reflection from Marriage Matters (www.twoinoneflesh.org.uk) for this Sunday
Second Sunday of Advent (Isaiah 11:1-10 Romans 15:4-9 Matthew 3:1-12)
Advent – a new beginning for us?
Today, Isaiah talks about trust and Matthew focuses on forgiveness. Advent is the opportunity to discover new ways to help our partner to trust us and to share themselves. Our prayer can be that we drop our defences, become more vulnerable and have the courage to open ourselves to be able to really listen, to share and to change.

"Volunteering gives me opportunities that I wouldn’t have had." Volunteering is a great way to boost your skills, improve your CV, meet new people and give back to your community.
There are currently volunteering opportunities in the Nugent Charity Shop on Allerton Road, Liverpool.
It is one of the most popular charity shops in the area, with a lot of regular customers and the team have sold over 40,000 items so far this year and raised over £90,000 for Nugent’s community services.
Volunteers in the Charity Shop get involved in all aspects, from sorting stock to taking payments, but most of all they are the face of Nugent for all of their regular customers.
