Fresh Expressions at St. Christopher’s

On the first Sunday of every month we meet at St Christopher’s for a Fresh Expression of church. This is a creative service, celebrating the Anglican tradition and the arts.  We combine worshiping together, with time to reflect and enjoy God’s presence individually. More details about the format of the services below.

Last time…

At the start of Lent, we gathered and explored the great Lenten theme of ‘wilderness’. Jesus went into the desert for 40 days and nights and was tempted. He faced the challenge of the harsh environment, and His faith was tested. Depending on God and standing firm on God’s word Jesus resisted temptation. Life can often seem like a wilderness, full many trails, and challenges. Our faith is tested, and we need to stand firm.
However, even out of the depths of darkness hope springs. We enjoyed making some snowdrops and placing them in a sand scene. Snowdrops are an amazing symbol of hope bursting out of the grips of winter.
