Knowing Christ and Making Him Known

A good job of work

I don’t know whether this is a well-known expression, or just something that was said in my circles, but I hope the meaning is clear… at today’s Church Spring Clean, “a good job of work” was done. A group few in number but fabulous in commitment turned out, and both the inside and the outside…

It is deliberately simple fare – soup, bread and a…

A Village Food Bank

It is a sad fact that poverty is increasing in the UK at the moment, and we recognise that Hunsdon is not immune from the impact of rising prices. In conjunction with the Parish Council and some enthusiastic village residents, the PCC has begun to investigate how we can support those individuals and families within…

Restarting Parish Prayers

Our meetings for Parish Prayers were amongst the ministries interrupted by the Covid pandemic. After an initial re-start faltered because of changing personal circumstances amongst a significant number of the most regular attendees, we have re-imagined how this ministry can begin again. We have concluded that a short, focussed, weekly time of prayer in which…

Time to Sing a New Song?

There’s an old joke… “How many Anglicans does it take to change a light bulb?” “Change?  We don’t want that…” Whilst there’s a real comfort to be gained from tried and tested traditions, there’s an associated risk that familiarity may breed contempt, or to put it more generously, may result in the message of the…
