The Meaning of The Eucharist

A three week course starting on Tuesday 9th September

jesus_eucharistThe Meaning of the Eucharist is a three week study course with discussion on the meaning and purpose of the Mass, which the Church regards as the summit and source of our ecclesial life.  It is required as instruction for our newly licensed extra-ordinary lay ministers of Holy Communion, but is open to any who would like to deepen their understanding of this sweet and divine sacrament.

The group will meet at the vicarage each Tuesday evening at 7:30pm, beginning on 9th September

The Feast of the Transfiguration


The feast of the Transfiguration of Christ celebrates the revelation of Christ’s divine glory

After revealing to His disciples that He would be put to death in Jerusalem Christ, along withPeter, James, and John, went up the mountain. There “he was transfigured before them. And his face did shine as the sun: and his garments became white as snow.”

The Feast of the Transfiguration will be celebrated with a sung Mass on Wednesday 6th August at 7:30pm.

God loved us to the point of sacricing his own Son.  On this feast we celebrate that love made visible in the heart of Jesus.

BBOTR booklet cover 24 Apr 13UILD ON THE ROCK

Faith, doubt – and Jesus


BUILD ON THE ROCK (Matthew 7.24) starts by looking at faith and doubt. Is it wrong – or is it normal and healthy – for a Christian to have doubts? Is there any evidence for a God who loves us? We hear from many witnesses.  At the heart of a Christian answer stands Jesus himself.

We consider his ‘strange and beautiful story’ and reflect upon his teaching, his death, his resurrection and his continuing significance.

The study group meets every Wednesday evening in the vestry hall following a short compline at 7:30pm.

Please note that there will be a small charge of £3.50 to cover the cost of the booklet you will need.

Sign up for the study group on the list at back of church, or contact Father Victor.
