Dear Friends

Love Tenbury
Mark 12:30-40 New International Version (NIV) 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’[a] 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] There is no commandment greater than these.” 32 “Well said, teacher,” the man replied. “You are right in saying that God is one and there is no other but him. 33 To love him with all your heart, with all your understanding and with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.” 34 When Jesus saw that he had answered wisely, he said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” And from then on no one dared ask him any more questions.

At the moment I am finalising the list of activities for Love Tenbury 2018, including trips, dancing, films, family activities and worship. In 2017 about 600 people were involved, this year I hope 1000 people will be involved. Full details will be published soon.

From Love Tenbury last year came Church and Chips, a monthly gathering with crafts, messy play, worship and food. Attendance is usually around 50 people on the first Saturday of each month. I hope and pray that something will emerge from Love Tenbury this year. It is about trying to connect and engage with people who do not attend regular worship, which is nearly everyone in our communities. It is about finding ways to actually love our neighbours. It is about trying to find ways to fulfil the goals of the local church and of our Diocese. It is about joining on with the mission of God where we live, where we work and where we worship. Here are the priorities for those who don’t know them.

   

Join in the conversation about what church is, what it could be and what you want it to be. Maybe together with God wonderful things can happen.
