In this month’s St Luke’s News Jeremy Cooke, our musical director, reflects on the exploitation of people around the world and how scripture is the source of comfort and hope but has also been abused and misused as a tool for fear and control. The promise of God in the Bible is that our identity is found in God and no-one can take that away from us. There are ways in which we can have an impact on this vile form of human suffering. Read how in this month’s magazine.
Melanie Sills, one of our wardens, reflects on generous giving through the words of Paul in 2 Corinthians 9.
There is an outline of what’s going over Lent at St Luke’s, Life Groups, Lent lunches, Daily Prayer and our sermon series on “Core Beliefs“.
You may then wonder what are Life Groups. This is a change to St Luke’s small group structure to encourage growth as whole-life disciples. There is an opportunity to test drive a life group after the morning services during Lent. Find out more in the magazine.
Our vicar Dave Middlebrook gives brief highlights of the Church of England’s report on church growth, “From Anecdote to Evidence“. He also sets out the vision for our newly launched building appeal.
