JOYFUL SUMMER

All of us long for happiness and joy to touch our lives and go out of our way in search of them. Where will we find this joy? Will anything give us a lasting experience of joy or will we always feel let down? The search for joy is universal and this summer we will be plugging into the joy that is found in Christ. Come and join us as we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection and take hold of its power and presence for our daily lives today.

MAKING THE MOST OF LENT

It’s that time of year once again when we embrace the traditions of LENT. LENT is a period of 40 days (not including Sundays) leading up to Easter. It takes us on a journey of reflection and discipline that not only reconnects us to the story of Jesus but also plays a part in forming Jesus’ character in us. Millions of people from around the world participate in it letting God reshape them into his image. Here at St Michael’s we always start LENT in prayer with others from across the city at the Abbey enjoying a pancake together. The next …

GRACE AND PEACE

Living out of grace and peace
Christmas is one thing, New Year is quite another. Which one do you prefer? This year, with Gus home for Tory’s birthday on a surprise visit, I loved putting up the tree and watching the kids hang their memories and treasures on the tip of the branches. We went to bed late that night but happy. That was the 16th December – still over a week to go – and there was much to do, much to get ready for, much to organise. And on the day itself, for us as a family, with …

SEVEN SACRED SPACES

New years bring new hopes and new opportunities. Last year was a significant one for our church but the year ahead promises to be even more so. Facing our biggest challenge of our lifetime we are going to be working together to rebuild, reorder, renew and refresh our church buildings so that they can help us be the people God has called us to be – a sign, a foretaste and an agent of the kingdom of God – a sign of hope in the heart of Twerton.  Our best days are ahead of us and together we are going …

CAROLS AND WORSHIP

Christmas draws out of us so many different emotions and it can be hard to handle them as they wash over us or take us by surprise. And it connects us to our deepest longings – longings for family, for belonging, for being recognised, longings for peace, for reconciliation for relationship, longings for a future, for a hope, for a destiny. All these desires are known by God, most perfectly presented to us in Jesus from Nazareth, and each of them in some way find their fulfilment in him. The carol “O little town of Bethlehem” put it like …
