St Augustine’s: July 2018

SarahFarrimondthumbI am writing this coming back from a wonderful fortnight’s holiday, mainly in France. We had a lovely time with plenty of rest as well as walking in the Alps (foothills and valleys) and exploring new and interesting places. These included some pretty amazing churches.

Some were famous buildings: the tallest, the biggest, the oldest the first example of something important. Others places where famous people had preached or played the organ or been a part of the congregation. Others were small churches in villages. Some had loads of tourists milling about. Others were empty and quiet.

It is often (and rightly) said that the church is really the people. And our business as a church is indeed the people: worshipping God, growing in faith and serving the local community. And our buildings are a part of that. It was wonderful at the gift day to see so many people in and out of our building: making music, enjoying the bake off and having a nice time. We use our building to make links with the community, to serve the community and to simply be here, a part of things.

And of course our building is rarely far from our minds in another way. Once again we have work that needs doing. This time on our heating system. We all need to work hard together to raise the money for the repairs that need doing. This presents a challenge, but also an opportunity. It reminds us how important our building is: for us and for the community as a whole. It gives us a chance to think about how we use our beautiful building for the benefit of all. And working together to face these challenges we have a chance to deepen our relationships as we seek to serve God and build his Kingdom here in Scissett.

Let’s get started.’
