Sunday Themes

The Church of England has a scheme of bible readings for services (a "lectionary"), and we follow this most of the time. The PCC has given its consent for the vicar to make variations in the scheme.

May 6th: "Remain in my love". Acts 10:44-48, John 15:9-17.

May 13th: Jesus' ascension. Acts 1:15-17 & 21-26, John 17:6-16.

May 20th: Pentecost - The Holy Spirit comes. Ezekiel 37:1-14, Acts 2:1-21.

May 27th: Trinity - God: three in One. 2 Corinthians 3:7-18, John 3:1-17.

June 3rd: Treasure in clay jars: 2 Corinthians 4:5-12, Mark 2:23-3:6.

June 10th: We believe, and so we speak: 2 Corinthians 4:13-5:1, Mark 3:20-35.

June 17th: Our confidence in eternity: Job 19:23-29, 2 Corinthians 5:1-15.

June 24th: Reconciled to God: 2 Corinthians 5:16-6:13, Mark 4:35-41.

July 1st: Generosity: 2 Corinthians 8:7-15, Mark 5:21-43.

July 8th: Faith when under fire: 2 Corinthians 12:2-10, Mark 6:1-13.

The underlined readings are the ones we will be focusing on as the themes of the services (but sometimes we don't make a specific choice until very close to the time itself). We use just the underlined reading at the 11.15am services, but at our 9.30am services we use both readings. On the first Sunday of each month our two services may have different themes, and we may not plan the theme of the 10.30am Family Service until very close to the time itself.
