WW1 Remembering, and reflecting upon that memory is an important human capacity. It helps us form a sense of who we are, individually and collectively and can shape how we live in the present and for the future. As we remember back 100 yrs, to those who made such a sacrifice for our nation, we do so also remembering the supreme sacrifice of Jesus Christ to right all human wrongs.

New Evening Service Topic: Christian X- Men and Women: Heroes of faith

As part of this series each preacher will present a hero of faith that has impacted them in their faith journey, tell the story of their hero, say how their heroes’ example has impacted their life, and then choose a segment of scripture that is important to, or is representative of their hero, and preach around that. Do come and join us on Sunday evenings (apart from the first Sunday of the month) at 6:30pm (coffee served from 6pm) to be encouraged by these inspiring heroes. If you missed the first two sermons in this series you can listen to them either via this website by clicking the following links - Jackie PullingerStanley SpencerChris Davis MBEIan HislopMelson Mandela & Dietrich Bonhoeffer or if you have Podcast software here or on iTunes as Holy Rood Talks.

 

Causeway

We are launching a new congregation which will gather together on the first Sunday of the month, at 6.30pm, at Holy Rood.  The Causeway congregation is open to everyone but when we meet for worship there will be special provision for adults with learning difficulties.  The great thing is we can all learn from one another and worship is enriched when abilities and traditions and ages are mixed - enriched that is, if we approach it with the right heart.  So do join us on the first Sunday of the month.

 

Prayer
