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.

The Monday House Group is an ecumenical group which normally meets on the second and fourth Monday evening of each month to explore issues of faith. We usually do this with the help of written and/or DVD-based study courses. Before Lent we completed "Living the Questions: Invitation to Journey" - a 21-session course which challenged us to face the questions Christians are often "afraid to voice for fear of being thought a heretic", and to see faith as a journey rather than a set of cut-and-dried answers to such questions. We shall be meeting on April 29th to choose a course to follow for the next few months.

The Thursday Group is an ecumenical group which meets weekly at 8a Crecy Walk at 8pm. Speakers are invited to talk to the group on selected topics and lead discussion. There is a theme each term and this alternates between being some sort of Bible study and a more general topic that might explore Christian faith in other ways. Last term we studied the Letter to the Hebrews. This term we are looking at 20th century Christians. New members are always welcome.

sos-filmstripSpirituality on Screen is the Oxford Methodist's film group and meets once a month at Jonathan's home to watch a film, share food and then discuss the issues raised. Although it attracts people from our Methodist churches across the Oxford area, Woodstock is well represented and together we have watched a wide-range of films. This year alone we have seen the ever-popular War Horse, tackled the issues of what makes someone "bad" through the gritty drama We Need To Talk About Kevin, reflected on growing old gracefully with the delightful The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, gained an insight into Iranian life through The Separation and had the chance to think about a variety of alternative worlds with the films In TimeThe Invention of Lying and The Hunger Games

We generally meet on the first Sunday of the month at 5.30pm and everyone is welcome. Further information, along with some past study guides, can be found on the group's own website.

Prayer for the Week

Grant us a vision, Lord
To see what we can achieve
To reach out beyond ourselves
To share our lives with others
To stretch our capabilities
To increase our sense of purpose
To be aware of where we can help
To be sensitive to your Presence
To give heed to your constant call.
Amen.
