Communication from the Anglican Church of St George and St Paul


Message from Beth

It’s impossible, your head tells you. 
There’s just too much to do.  Everything’s a mess.

But still…
Don’t you have at least a little bit of faith?
A tiny seed.
Inside, there’s a plan, a hope,
a dream of great possibilities. 
Within a small seed of faith
resides all the power of God.


God of small seeds and mighty plants, take our little offerings and with your love cause us to produce acts of loving kindness for you in this world; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Living in Love and Faith – an invitation to be part of the discussion.

This is the name of the Church of England project exploring sexuality and identity.  Every chaplaincy/parish is invited to look at and discuss material provided by General Synod’s project group which contains people holding many different viewpoints.  We are beginning our exploration in this chaplaincy by offering the material to a small group of 10 people online, in 5 sessions, each lasting an hour and a half, beginning the week of the 12th July. Please let Beth know,, if you would like to be part of this group; dates and times will be determined according to what suits the participants.  I would very much like to offer the material more widely after this first trial.
