We continue our series with the support of the diocese, ‘Generous June’ – with a focus on God’s generosity to us and how we can be generous in return. St Mark’s lead, from a walk from Lymington to Pennington, ending up at St Mark’s – with support from St Thomas – and the Rt Revd Bishop David, the Bishop of Basingstoke, leads our sermon today.
As we enter ‘Ordinary Time’, we start a new series with the support of the diocese, ‘Generous June’ – with a focus on God’s generosity to us and how we can be generous in return. St Thomas lead, with support from St Mark’s – and the Rt Revd Bishop Sellin, the Bishop of Southampton, leads our sermon today.
For those of you local to Lymington or Pennington – or looking for an excuse to come from far and wide to visit us – we’re going to be having a churchyard tidy day soon.
We celebrate Trinity Sunday, with Rachel having dodged the challenging sermon topic today that is the ‘triune God’! Peter leads the sermon, with St Thomas providing the music and prayers, as St Mark’s lead.
We celebrate Pentecost today, with Peter leading a communion service from St Thomas Church in Lymington. Our Bishops Permission to Preach candidate George leads the sermon.
We want to continue our online church, as a fresh expression of church. We’d really like your help with this. In particular, we’d like to draw together a team who are passionate about our online church, and who want to continue worshipping together online. Would you like to join us as we explore these ideas forward?
Our newest BCM candidate, Jane, leads from the lady chapel at St Mark’s today, whilst St Thomas bring the music, sermon and prayers. Today, we think about a prayerful community – as we look forward to Thy Kingdom Come.
The Pascal candle is a symbol of Jesus light, here on Earth. George talks on Ascension Day about the meaning of the candle – and how it’s extinguishing means we must carry the light instead. The ascension marks the end of one story – but the start of another: the birth of the Christian church, empowered by the Holy Spirit.
Remaining mostly dry, Peter leads from the vicarage garden in Lymington – whilst St Mark’s bring the sermon and prayers. Today, we think about a fundamental truth from Jesus last supper with his followers: friendship is key.
We’re leading once more from St Mark’s, where one of our BCM Worship team tie together the hymns, prayer and sermon from our friends at St Thomas. Our focus today is on a Jesus centred community – as Peter gets to task on vines in the vicarage!
