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.

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.

July 15th: God has chosen us: Deuteronomy 4:32-40, Ephesians 1:3-14.

July 22nd: God has made us alive: Ephesians 2:11-22, Mark 6:30-34,53-56.

July 29th: Knowing God's riches: Ephesians 3:14-end, John 6:1-21.

Aug 5th: We are God's body: Ephesians 4:1-16.

Aug 12th: God transforms us: Leviticus 19:1-18, Ephesians 4:25-5:2.

Sep 9th: No favouritism: James 2:1-14, Mark 7:24-37.

Sep 16th: Deeds of Faith: Joshua 2:1-15, James 2:15-end.

Sep 23rd: Tame the tongue: James 3:1-12, Matthew 12:33-37.

Sep 30th: Practical wisdom: James 3:13-4:8, Matthew 5:43-48.

Oct 7th (Harvest Thanksgiving): God is faithful. James 5:1-12, Luke 12:22-34.

Oct 14th: The prayer of faith: James 5:13-20, Luke 18:1-8.

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.
