September 2018 Letter from Sarah

SarahFarrimondthumbSeptember is a time for new beginnings in all sorts of ways: after a quieter time in August things kick off again at this time and speed up as the church year picks up its pace after the quiet months of ‘Ordinary Time’ and major festivals start to loom on the horizon.

And we have lots to look forward to at St Augustine’s. There are many events about to take place: Messy Church, Film Club, Coffee Mornings and the November Fair. And I would like to warmly encourage you to take part and to support all of these and more. 

But as well as looking forward let’s take a moment to look back too. Over the last few weeks in church the gospel readings have focussed on bread: on Jesus as the ‘bread of life’ and on various stories in the Bible that centre of God’s people ‘breaking bread’ ie eating bread together.

Bread is something good to think with: necessary, wholesome and therefore a good picture of something that we really need to keep us going. But bread is not just something to talk about. Bread is also something physically necessary. When we eat together, we receive the nourishment we need and we also slow down, we talk, we make a space where we can get to know each other a bit better, we build a community. In a small way this has been happening at the pop up cafes that have taken place through August. In a bigger way it happens week by week at church. Our worship is, in fact centred round a meal: a meal that invites us to look back and then to look forwards into the future with its challenges and its joys

With my prayers and Best wishes

Revd Sarah Farrimond
