The theme of the services on 29th January is "A Serving Church in a Selfish World". We gain insight into how Christian service, though sacrificial, is an investment. The service will conclude with prayers and our annual act of commemoration of the Princess Victoria tragedy.
Here are some thoughts by Henri Nouwen on Christian service:
“We are not called to save the world, solve all problems, and help all people, but each of us has our own unique call, in our families, in our work, in our world. We have to keep asking God to help us see clearly what our call is and to give us the strength to live out that call with trust. Then we will discover that our faithfulness to a small task is the most healing response to the illnesses of our time.”
After the service there will be a very special Teddy Bears' Picnic - see calendar of events for further details.
