  • A Prayer for the Vacancy

    Creator God, we come to you in prayer
    in this time of ministerial vacancy
    and ask your blessing upon the different churches
    of the South West Hants Group,
    with all their different experiences,
    strengths and concerns.

    We thank you for our previous ministers,
    and pray your presence and blessing upon them all.

    We ask now that you will help us to share
    that responsibility,
    to grow in faith, to love one another,
    to care for those in need, to reach out to others,
    and to welcome newcomers.

    Give those involved in seeking a new minister
    and those seeking to minister in a new pastorate,
    insight into your will,
    inspiration through your Holy Spirit,
    and instruction through your Word.

    Give us wisdom to see the opportunities before us,
    courage to grasp them,
    and perseverance to see them through
    so that together
    we may discover your way for the future
    and see your kingdom grow.
    Amen

  • Training for Learning and Serving (TLS)

    A new and exciting opportunity to learn and grow in Christian discipleship is to be launched throughout the United Reformed Church in 2018. In preparation there will be a phase by phase process in which TLS winds down some of what it offers and new transitional opportunities will come into place. The first stage in this process will be that this year (i.e. for the academic year beginning in September 2016) TLS will not enrol any new course members on the Foundation Course. One year “Gateway” courses on worship, pastoral care, prayer, evangelism, and developing community experiences will continue and will start as usual in September 2016, with a closing date for applications of 31 May. The Prospectus http://www.urc.org.uk/discipleship/education-and-learning/training-for-learning-and-serving.html provides information about these courses and how to go about enrolling on them. Please take a look and see if there is something there for you. TLS Local Introductory Training Experiences (LITE) offers short courses for local use at any time and can be purchased through United Reformed Church Publications http://urcshop.co.uk/training/tls-lite-publications

  • Verse of the Day 28/7/2016

    [Focused on the Goal] I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back. — Philippians 3:14 (MSG)
