As we celebrate Christ the King Sunday , Chris Stokes writes about how appropriate this weeks bible passage is as we continue in our second lock down . Our challenging circumstances have seen people of all faiths and none reaching out to their fellow brothers and sisters  to help in any way they can .So when Jesus returns in glory  and separates the goats from the sheep which side will you want to be with, the sheep at the right hand of Jesus or with the goats  ? In caring for others  find out what makes Christians different and what it  really means for them . 

Read about the tradition of " stir up Sunday" and where it gets name from and also how some church members in our benefice are preparing for the beginning of Advent.
