Whatever you think of church,
St Bride's is doing it differently!
This week at St Bride's
Sunday 21st May - Sixth Sunday of Easter
10.00am Holy Communion We continue our theme for Eastertide: 'What resurrection means to me'. Mark Waters, Team Vicar at St Dunstan's, will reflect on how talk about resurrection in the Church is too often narrowly focused on ideas of personal survival after death, and completely future orientated around some ideal realm we might one day live in. But the scriptures witness to resurrection as a reality and quality of life now, and something that God is doing all the time. PLUS There will be a basket collection this week to help support refugees who don’t have a safe place to call home.
