The Blue Plaque Nativity

We had a great time in our Advent preparations with the Revd Doug Chaplin looking at the circumstances surrounding the birth of Jesus.  He even produced a “Blue Plaque” for us.  Those of you who did not come missed a treat.  Sadly the weather went against us for the session planned with David Bryer to look at the circumstances that now surround the birthplace of Jesus.  We decided to shelve the session but not to lose all the work David had done in preparation, so we plan to hold it later in the year.

Do bear in mind that people put a lot of effort into preparing such sessions so it is a shame if not many people attend them.


Lent 2018

Other people’s Lents


There were various strands of belief when Jesus was teaching in Palestine yet his teaching attracted great crowds. Palestine was a bit like Piccadilly Circus.  A lot of merchants passed through on their way between the  East and the West.  They carried with them new ideas and learning.  The early church also contended against a variety of beliefs and grew:

“Men of Athens! I see that in every way you are very religious.  For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: “To an unknown god”.    (Acts Ch 17 vs. 22)

In Malvern we have very little contact with other faiths.  This Lent I have asked people from 5 of the major world faiths to come and speak to us.   This should give us the opportunity to learn about them from people who practice them and therefore deepen our understanding of what we ourselves believe.

I have not yet agreed all the times and dates with our speakers but there will be details of the programme available as soon as that is complete.  I also intend to notify the local schools and invite any of their 6th formers to join us.

St Wulstan’s Church has kindly agreed to allow us to use their Parish Hall for our sessions and I have said that we would welcome any of the congregation to join us.
