Book Club

Five or six of us have met to discuss various books, all with a Christian theme; led by Helen and Peter Hill, we have explored together their relevance to our faith. We meet again at 4 pm on 30th November, when we shall be discussing Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Letters and Papers from Prison. Bonhoeffer, a Lutheran theologian and pastor, was executed by the Nazi’s just before the end of the war, and is commemorated as a  modern martyr in Westminster Abbey.

I was deeply moved and inspired by this book – and the life of Bonhoeffer – when I first read it in the 1960’s, and it has remained special to me, not least since I stayed briefly with the recipient of most of the letters in 1968.

Sue and I very much hope that you will be able to join us when we gather again next month.

This abridged edition has a forward by the Rev.d Sam Wells, Vicar of St Martin in the Fields, who writes: “There is life, love, loss, longing, lightness, lament, languor and laughter. There is mundane humanity alongside sublime theology.”

Communion during this time

In these unprecedented times, we are working hard to find imaginative solutions in a landscape that has been rapidly changing. Sometimes we get things right, and sometimes we miss the mark. I apologise that this has been the case regarding communion.

For those of you who have received wafers in a parcel, we would ask that you either consume them, or put them somewhere safe to bring back once we are able to be together again.

We are going to be sending out a new order of service for use during this time as either a simple service of the word or, on occasion, to help us to share an Agape meal together.
