Members of our CSBC community offer prayers of gratitude and longing, and Geoff Maddock and some of the cross-cultural workers from Global Interaction invite us to join them in their weekend of prayer.
Today we observe All Saints Day – a date in the calendar of the church for remembering and honouring those who have served the church and the world in the past.
In this video Simon shares some memories of some of the wonderful people who have been part of the CSBC community in the past and Carolyn reflects on today’s New Testament reading: the Beatitudes from the Sermon on the Mount.
We look forward to some of you joining us for Communion and our Annual General Meeting via Zoom at 11am today. The details have been sent via email.
Today we begin a two-week reflection on what it means to embrace our limits.
In this season of isolation our daily lives are constrained in particular ways. For months now we have been confined to our homes and neighbourhoods and it’s been challenging. Indeed, it can feel as though we’ve put our lives on hold.
