NEW! Daily Reflections starting 25/07 Shaping Disciples – An introduction to Marks’s Gospel

Previously we had noted that the source for Mark’s gospel was none other than the apostle Peter, I would like now to turn our attention to Mark.

Early church sources tell us that Mark was Peter’s companion, interpreter  and scribe (His Greek was probably a lot better for writing to the Gentile churches in which they ministered)and that Mark was meticulous in reporting exactly what Peter said.

They also tell us Mark heard the stories about Jesus recounted in Peter’s sermons, that Peter had arranged together to teach particular points to particular audiences – as Peter was all about making disciples and teaching them what they needed to know to follow Jesus more closely (and in turn make disciples themselves).  We may be traveling through Peters stories, but watch how Mark (following the example of Peter) has arranged them – what is he trying to teach us?  How is he trying to shape us as disciples of Jesus?

Note: We are now using the NIVUK  translation on bible gateway (the reading  link) that comes with the acclaimed audio version – read by David Suchet – Just click on the speaker icon in the row of icons above the Bible passage and David Suchet will read to you!

Brimscombe Church Open Saturday 10:30-12:30am with

NEW!  Morning prayer at 11am

The Good News is that we are now able to start the journey of restoring church buildings to their proper use.  It will take many steps and probably many changes along the way, but to start with, following the current guidelines, we are planning to open each of the churches in the benefice for one two-hour session each week

  • Mondays 9am-11am: St Mary’s Woodchester
  • Wednesdays 10am-12 noon: St Mary Magdalene Rodborough
  • Saturdays 10:30am-12:30pm: Holy Trinity Brimscombe

There will be two people on duty for each session, welcoming people . You are assured of a friendly welcome and a peaceful atmosphere.  In keeping with the guidance, social distancing and high levels of hygiene will be observed.  There will be prayer resources available that people can use and can take away.

we are planning to have 30mins of quiet music from 10:30am to 11:00am when we join together for a service.

We will monitor how this works and also, as the government restrictions change, will look at how we best respond to the opportunities we have.
