Every year The Shrublands Trust, whose activities include running the Food Bank, hold a family fun day on the ‘green’ outside the Shrublands Shops.This year it is on Sunday 16th June.         

There will be food, games, raffles etc. Bev, the organiser, has requested jam jars filled not with jam or marmalade but with small gifts. Ideas for gifts include sweets, pencils and erasers, hair accessories, really anything that will fit into a jar. Would any of you be able to donate one (or more)? I realise that this is very short notice but if you can help please bring them to church on 9th or 16th June. The event runs from 2.00 to 6.00p.m. and all are most welcome.

Thank you for all the help you already give to the Trust.

From the 9th June we will be holding a monthly Evensong at 5pm.
Taking place as the day begins to end, this service is a wonderful opportunity to pause and reflect. You are welcome to join in or just sit back and let the words and music draw you towards God and help you to prepare for the week ahead. The service lasts about 45 minutes.

I realise the website tends to have lots of information about what happening at our church, events, services etc. This post is a little different

Q. What might transgender people be looking for from their church?

A. For the Church to

  • signal that trans people are welcome
  • be a safe space for them, and for family and friends journeying with them
  • listen and learn from their experience
  • be a place where they are not required to hide who they are
  • recognise the honesty and integrity of their particular journey within the love of Christ
  • understand that their experience is about being true to their own sense of self
  • have their loved ones supported and their relationships affirmed
  • be open to their requests for prayer & offer resources to mark significant life events
  • treat them equally with everyone else in the ministry and mission of the church
  • not presume that they have automatically fallen from grace just for being who they are

I read the above thinking that sounds pretty much the same list that anyone would have.

The whole article can be found here.

Please continue to pray and think about what your response will be when asked about this topic.
