CHRIST THE KING
THE FOURTH SUNDAY of THE KINGDOM
I hope that you are all well and that you have all had a good week. We extend a warm welcome to everyone. Please join us for worship. Please see our parish website and parish facebook page for information of our weekly services, forthcoming events and devotional aids.
On this fourth Sunday of the Kingdom Season the Churches year comes to an end with the Feast of Christ the King. Today we celebrate the Kingship of our Lord Jesus Christ over earth and heaven. We give thanks that he has called us to share the glory of his risen life and promised us a place at his side in his Kingdom for ever. We pray that we may be worthy recipients of his great gift to us.
Your friend and priest, Fr Gary Powell.
Everyone is welcome to join us for worship during the week and for our social groups and meetings.
