23/04/2017    [1]    On the Second Sunday (Octave) of Easter we celebrate something ‘more precious than gold’, for we did not see Him, yet we love Him and are filled with a joy so glorious! We celebrate the Risen Christ who comes into the inner  room of our fears and gives us the courage to reach to him in the wounded of our world: to bring healing, justice and peace.
[2]   A Retiring Collection supporting the work of CCS Adoption - our diocesan Children’s Society. They do excellent work for our most vulnerable children in seeking and supporting adoptive families. Could you adopt a child and give them a new beginning in their young and deprived lives? If so call 0117 935 0005 for an informal discussion. 

30/04/2017    With the Third Sunday of Easter we celebrate the presence of the Risen Christ among us in the Eucharist as with the two disciples at Emmaus, we too ‘recognise Him in the Breaking of the Bread’. And our hearts burn within us!

7/05/2017   [1]   The Fourth Sunday of Easter is named ‘Good Shepherd Sunday’ celebrating Jesus to shepherd who gathers us into the sheepfold of eternal life, who lays down His life to protect and save us, who is the gateway to life in all its fulness!
[2]   We are asked today to pray especially about Vocation - the special and unique calling that each one of has, as God calls and beckons us to to be faithful disciples of Jesus and take up the Mission to be shepherds of each other  and the world. Let us heed His Call!
[3]   In particular we are asked to pray for vocations to ordained ministry and consecrated religious life. Let us also pray that the Church will listen to the voice of the Spirit in our time and ordain to ministry married people, men and women, to shepherd our communities and Break the Bread of Life for us - ending the Eucharistic Famine in parts of the world!
