30.03.2019Lenten BreakfastsThe next breakfast and talk, organised by Churches Together, is Saturday 30th March at 8.30am in the Methodist Church. The theme of 'Big Questions', continues with 'Why do bad things happen to good people?' The speaker is Stig Graham, an ordained priest in the Church of England, who has spent twenty years as a hospital chaplain. Whilst wondering why life is filled with parentheses, he is passionate about science, faith and caring for those in spiritual pain.
28.03.2019Mass with the Sacrament of the Anointing of the SickEvery last Thursday in the month there is an opportunity for those who are sick to partake of this sacrament. The practice of being anointed with oil as a powerful prayer for strengthening and healing dates back to the earliest Church. Scripture bears witness to this when it says: "Are there any who are sick among you? Let them send for the priests of the Church and let the priests pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith will save the sick persons, and the Lord will raise them up; and if they have committed any sins their sins will be forgiven them."
