Paraclesis

Paraclesis : journeying together

As a Church family, we will be seeking to deepen our ministry of caring for all by journeying together through a six week sermon series called Paraclesis.  By exploring the Gospels and digging deep within them our intention is to learn even more about how Jesus says we are to care and be there for others. It covers six themes: caring, loving, journeying, living, healing and connecting.

Paraclesis [journeying together] will further add to the existing culture and attitude of caring within the church, uniting people in their situations and creating compassion that spills out beyond ourselves into the places where we live & work each day.

But that’s not all, our Home-groups and one ‘Open Group’  will meet during the weeks that follow and, using supplementary material, will seek to develop and/or increase our capacity to draw alongside each other; share practical ideas  – all so we can encourage everyone to journey together.

Open Group Sessions (Vestry Hall: 7.30 – 9.00 pm)

Thursday 23rd February – Caring

Thursday 2nd March – Loving

Thursday 9th March – Journey

Thursday 16th March – Living

Thursday 23rd March – Healing

Thursday 6th April – Connecting

All are welcome to the Open Group …. just turn up, grab a coffee and join in the conversation.

Any Questions? Then please contact Revd Natasha Brady: 07539 424821
