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.
