This Month



Overall theme for 2024: “CHOSEN TO BE HOLY” - Transformation by the Holy Spirit.


God has always desired His people to be holy - “Be holy; for I, the Lord your God, am holy” (Leviticus 20:7). And St. Paul told the community in Ephesus that God “chose us in [Christ] . . . to be holy” (Ephesians 1:4). We tend to think that, because we are sinners, we cannot be holy. Yet this is not the whole story, because Jesus shed his blood in order to make us holy (Hebrews 13:12).


The truth is that every baptised person is called to holiness, chosen by the Lord to be fruitful (John 15:16). This is not something we can achieve by our own efforts: the Father gives the Holy Spirit to transform us into the image of Christ, so that our lives can bear fruit in witnessing to the good news of God’s love.


Each month we will develop our understanding and appreciation of how we are to respond to God's call. Showing how being holy doesn’t mean being sinless, joyless or judgemental; it means co-operating with the Holy Spirit as He helps us to love and obey God’s will to love Him and to love our neighbour.


SEE THE FULL 2024 PROGRAMME

Jenny Baker, popular conference and video speaker, former Vice President of Renewal Services and now National Leader of Celebrate Trust, will explain how St Paul's famous statement "I no longer live but Christ lives in me" is a vitally important truth of our faith: that every baptised person is called to holiness.

You are very welcome to join us on Zoom. See MEETING panel for details of the next meeting and scroll down to JOINING DETAILS panel for how to register and participate.   


Rosary: we would normally start our meeting with the Rosary, but this is not part of the Zoom conference. You can choose to watch an online Rosary for example Rosary Joyful Mysteries from Lourdes (30 minutes); or say your own, using our ADoRE "Rosary with Scriptures" Link HERE

Mass and Adoration: livestreamed on Zoom from 10.00am with an entry hymn and short introduction. Please join from 9.50 and stay muted. More information on Adoration HERE


Reflection and prophecy: after Adoration, participants may offer words that they feel the Lord is giving them. Please press the "Reactions" button to raise a hand and wait till we ask you to unmute your microphone and invite you to speak. More information about Prophecy HERE

Praise and Worship: After a 10 minute comfort break, at 11.20am there will be a fuller welcome and introduction and a time of sung praise and worship. Song words will be shown on screen so you can join in at home, though your microphone should still be muted. (The time delay online makes it tricky to sing in unison).


Testimony: at 11.40am there will be a short testimony from someone about their own experience of renewal in the Spirit.


Talk: at 11.45 we have an inspiring talk from our guest speaker for the month. (See THIS MONTH panel for details.) This will conclude with a time of prayer for renewed outpouring of the gifts of the Holy Spirit on all participants.


Sharing: At aroud 12.30, we will share our response to the talk, or have a Question & Answer session, before further prayer and final announcements. The meeting finishes at around 1.00pm.


Prayer Ministry: We offer the opportunity for you to receive prayer for healing or spiritual renewal of your faith by telephone after the meeting. Details HERE
