WORSHIP & PRAYER

'WORSHIP AT HOME' SERIES OF SERVICES FROM CALDY VALLEY

We are continuing to send out a weekly service sheet by post and email which we can use together while we are unable to gather for worship. It will also be posted on the Welcome page each week, and previous services can be found in our Library of On-line services.

** NEW**  VINE AT HOME

This week's Vine at Home is written by Jill Baker. She introduces this years Advent…Advent is disruptive, but alongside that disruption we hold onto the grace of God of which Paul speaks in his first letter to the Corinthian church. Paul makes a promise to which we too can hold as we look for God to tear open the heavens and come to us afresh; ‘God is faithful’ and ‘will also strengthen you to the end, so that you may be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.’ Stay alert to that – these are exciting times.

Jill's opening prayer is available as a video and can be downloaded here.

service highlighting the problems faced by some of our World Church
