During the present lock down we have suspended Sunday worship in our churches, in order to keep everyone safe. Stay at home - and join in worship from the comfort of your sofa.

Worship for Sunday 21st February.

The Bible shows us again and again that God is on the side of the people on the edges. In a thread that runs through all of scripture, God is concerned first and foremost with people who have been excluded from society by poverty, oppression and injustice. Many of the encounters that Jesus has with others bring hope to the those who need it, and challenge to those who need it! The series of reflections that we are using on these Sundays of Lent come from Church Action on Poverty’s Scripture from the Margins. Through the eyes of the followers of Jesus, trying to make sense of their mission, in the Acts of the Apostles; we too are given hope, and we too, are challenged.

Our second reflection in our Lent series based on Church Action on Poverty’s Scripture from the Margins, is based on the sensational story of Ananias and Sapphira, found in Acts 5. As we come out of lockdown we will come to see more and more clearly how Covid has exacerbated the gulf between rich and poor in this country. How do we relate to this as Christians? What can we do?
