Something for everyone!

Bible Story Time

As part of an intergenerational project, our church members have been recording Bible Stories to share with young children. Go to YouTube playlist

Holy Habits

Holy Habits is about a way of life, a rhythm formed in response to the call of Jesus, and has parallels with our Bishop Tim’s initiative a couple of years ago encouraging us to write and follow a Rule of Life, a flexible framework to help us to grow more like Christ. By creating our own Rule we can incorporate a practical way of responding to the love of God by committing ourselves to a number of actions that will help us grow up in our faith.

Sponsored by the Methodist Church and promoted by the United Reformed Church, the Holy Habits material is being used by a variety of denominations, and some parishes in our Diocese and Deanery have been using the series for discussion groups to explore the breadth of discipleship.

Our series is prepared by Alan Jenkins LLM. Weekly sessions will be made available over the first few months of 2021. Go to YouTube playlist

Thoughts for the week

Mark’s Gospel

Mark’s Gospel in six parts recorded by Mike O’Brien, BCM Worship Leader.

The church cycle of readings for 2020/21 (Year B) focuses on Mark’s Gospel. Each Sunday we explore a few verses of a gospel telling us about the life of Jesus. Perhaps it’s a bit like going up a mountain and each Sunday we can explore just a little view ahead. It can be so helpful sometimes to step right back and take in the whole mountain, the whole story of Jesus life, death and resurrection, and be filled with wonder and awe at the magnitude and mystery of it.

Stations of the Cross

The Stations of the Cross, also known as ‘The Way of the Cross’, refers to walking with Jesus in reflection and prayer using 14 images depicting Jesus’ journey to Golgotha. At St James’ Church we have ‘station’ images around the walls of the Nave. In Lent we make the opportunity to pause by each image, taking time to stop be still, watch and pray.

Recorded as part of a series during the Coronavirus Pandemic in 2020 when our churches were closed in an unprecedented attempt to limit the spread of the disease, and with the United Kingdom and most of the world in ‘lockdown’. Prepared by Carol Kidd LLM.
