First Sunday Communion – a refreshed programme for 2017/18

30 August 2017

Earlier this month we relaunched our first Sunday evening of each month Communion Service. Each month, and beginning at 6pm, this service is going to have one focus and three characteristics.

The focus is on a service for those who want to think a little more deeply and broadly about their faith. It is designed to appeal to who have responsibility or leadership in some way whether in church or in wider work. You may be a house group leader, leading a group with children or young people or responsible for developing and managing others in your work context.

The three characteristics are:
• An hour service
• A simple and traditional style
• Sharing in communion

We will provide questions to follow up on the thinking individually or in groups. This could be a good resource for house groups.

For now we will be following themes taken from 2 Corinthians. The Christians in Corinth belonged to powerful and vibrant church. But you would be making a naïve assumption to think that such a church had smooth relations and easy working.

The Corinthians had a heady mix of blessings and trouble, which prompted their founder, Paul, to offer some thoughtful insights on leadership and Christian belief and practice.

If you take responsibility or exercise leadership in whatever capacity, as pastor, parent, trusted friend or manager you will find this a helpful book in the Bible.

Graham Brownlee will be leading this programme and drawing contributions from others during the year.
