Our faith

We believe and trust in God, who loves us all.

We believe and trust in Jesus, who showed us what love means.

We believe and trust in the Holy Spirit, who helps us to love in return.

tuesday-fellowshipWe meet every fortnight at 2.30pm on a Tuesday afternoon in the church hall. We number 18 regular members and would perhaps describe ourselves as "ladies of more mature years". Our meetings usually begin with a hymn, Bible reading and prayers, followed by an address by our invited speaker, finishing with another hymn and the blessing, and of course, tea and biscuits. We have a varied programme and every few weeks a bring-and-buy stall, the proceeds of which are donated to charity. This last year we have enjoyed a wide range of topics from our speakers including 'Woodstock in Bloom', 'Life and Work at Blackbird Leys', 'Inspirational Quilting', the work of Macmillan Nursing, the work of Archway, musical afternoons, as well as meditations on Advent and Holy Week. We had two members' afternoons when we have entertained and amused each other about memories of our schooldays and life at home when we were girls. Occasionally, we allow ourselves a treat – like Shrove Tuesday lunch and pancakes, or hot cross buns!

We are always delighted to welcome new members or occasional visitors.

Prayer for the Week

Lord, when I am tempted to hold on
to what I think is mine,
to my way of doing things,
to my security blankets;
help me to let go enough to discover that
in Christ, all things are possible.
Amen.
