LENT STUDY GROUP

 

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.

“Follow me.” [13th Sunday in Ordinary Time: 30th June]

Christ wants us to follow him? Like, literally. Not just in the Twitter sense (click here for our Twitter page!)

What does it mean to follow?

  • Christ calls us to orientate ourselves toward him so he may lead us.
  • We should not fear for what may become in our lives.
  • If he is leading us, we can trust in Him because He is God.
  • We share with other Christians who also follow Him.

 

As Saint Benedict said:
“May the holy Cross be my light; let not the dragon be my guide.”
“Crux sancta sit mihi lux / Non draco sit mihi dux”
(Rhymes in Latin)

 

Join us this Sunday for our main act of worship at 10am.

 

C. S. Matthew

“Who do you say I am?” [12th Sunday Ordinary Time]

What name do we give Jesus?

Our Lord? Our Saviour? Teacher?

This Sunday’s Gospel taken from the Gospel of Luke (9:18-24) shows us Jesus Christ asking this question and pointing forward to His act of love on the cross, to ‘suffer grievously’.

 

Join us this Sunday for our main act of worship at 10am.

Pimm’s and Barbecue! [THIS SUNDAY!]

This Sunday, we welcome you to our fantastic BBQ as we enter the jolly month of June and celebrate Corpus Christi here in sunny MK!

All proceeds will be going to an excellent cause: raising funds for the youth pilgrimage to Walsingham this year.

So, have some wonderful BBQ meat, some delicious Pimm’s, and support us and our youth by  helping us bring the wonderous experience of Walsingham into the hearts of the youth of our parish.

 

This event will be after the main Parish Mass of 10am, so join us in a fellowship lunch for a good cause!
