SPECIAL EVENTS COMING UP
Parish Church Now Open for Sunday Worship
10.30am @ the Parish Church
At the present time there will be for one service of Morning Prayer at 10.30am each Sunday. As no singing is allowed it will be a said service and will last about 40 minutes. All are welcome including families, although our children's group will not be meeting at the moment. We will update everyone again as soon as we are able to offer a wider range of worship at both St Peter's and St Luke's.
"Around the Bible"
"Meet with God and each other"
Bible, Pray, Talk,
Have you ever got the tune of a mindless song stuck in your head? You find yourself humming a song you don’t even like. The world around us sings a song and that song often gets fixed in our minds. We find ourselves joining in. What our songs think and desire become what we think and desire.
The Psalms help us re-tune our hearts. David says that the Lord “put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the LORD and put their trust in him” (Psalm 40 v 3). The Psalms re-tune our hearts to the new song of God’s redemption and God's promised future. As a result, we learn to trust God in the face of adversity.
In our disscusions each time we will choose psalms are all taken from the first book of Psalms (Psalms 1 – 41), most of which are songs of people in trouble. They usually begin with the problems we face. But they don’t leave us there. They turn us back to God; to his character and his salvation. They offer us hope in the midst of despair. They put a new song in our mouths.
You may feel, at the moment, as if your soul is afflicted, downcast or sick. You may be troubled by worry, problems, suffering, fear or guilt. But in these psalms we will seek comfort and consolation for the soul. We will learn with the psalmist to re-tune our hearts with the new song of God’s love.
