Packing Christmas hampers today at Holbeach Community Larder!

 

Comment on Facebook

40 hampers packed by Kate Plant with help from our foodbank volunteers and young people from the University Academy Post 16 Centre. All made possible by the generous donation of foodstuffs by Tesco customers and vegetables from Lincolnshire field produce. Over this weekend and next week they will find their way to 40 households in the area. Enjoy.

Three very busy hours in church today sorting and labeling all the donations that came in from Tesco customers over the weekend. It was good to be joined by our counterparts from Sutton Bridge. Both food banks will be sending out about 40 Christmas hampers each. Thank you to all our helpers. ... See MoreSee Less

Some of the best pics from the junior choir trip to High Ropes today. They were brilliant fun to be with, encouraged each other and one or two did really well to overcome their fears, and by the third time round were beaming. Well done to Kim and Neil, the adults who gave it a go. ... See MoreSee Less

Bright and cheerful.

Here they all are - our confirmation candidates, plus those from Long Sutton and the Mid Elloe group with Bishop Nicholas after a fabulous confirmation service yesterday evening. Kate Plant and I feel privileged to have walked their journey of faith with them and delighted that so many of our junior choir have chosen to make this next step in their faith journey. A great day for our church community and lovely to see so many from the congregation supporting them. Two very moving testimonies from Kevin Dodd and Sara Williams. ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you Rosamund, expertly baked, you have made our bread making look so appetising as well as being a special part of the Eucharist tomorrow.

The Confirmation candidates spent a fun and inspiring morning in Church with Rosamund today, considering the Eucharist and making the bread to be used for Holy Communion during the Baptism and Confirmation service, as part of our final preparations for Sunday. The service starts at 6:30pm. Please try to come and share in this joyous service. ... See MoreSee Less

Well done. Sorry I missed it. I was tied to the kitchen sink at food bank!!

We’ve been celebrating today as 27 young Christians from churches around the world made a commitment to put Christ before everything else.

This is the third group of people who’ve given a year of their lives to the Community of St Anselm here at Lambeth Palace. It’s always an intensely moving and humbling thing to witness.

The Community’s vision is simple. We seek to give people an opportunity to recognise two things: the complexity of each other, and the simplicity of seeking to put Christ at the centre of everything. It’s our hope and prayer that this experience stays with them for the rest of their lives.

Community is so important in the life of the church, because it’s such a good place for learning how each of us turns away from God in various ways. But through that experience – if we respond to it with honesty, openness and humility – community becomes a crucible of hope and development.

It becomes a place where we learn to live with each other in a spirit of love and forgiveness. A place where we recognise that reconciliation is not an optional extra to the Gospel: it is the Gospel.

Please pray for these young people as they set off on this new journey with Christ together – and for all Religious communities, traditional and modern, across the church and around the world.
