‘Happy are they who walk in the law of the Lord‘
A very warm welcome to all
Sixth Sunday after the Epiphany
Readings: Jeremiah 17: 5-10; 1 Corinthians 15: 12-20
Gospel: Luke 6: 17-26
In today’s Gospel
Throughout Luke’s gospel, the emphasis is on God with Us – Emmanuel. Jesus stands on a level plain with us, showing us God’s Kingdom in the middle of our chaos, in the middle of our need for healing. The only question is whether we will reject such amazing grace, or be willing to stand in that level place with Jesus and receive God’s blessing.
Repair & Refurbishment Project
Please be very careful around the current scaffolding we have in place, especially if you are using the pathway at the side of the church.
Choral Evensong 27th February
We will have a Choral evensong on Sunday the 27th of February which will commence at 6pm. Please put this in your diary and come if you are able, why not bring a friend.

We have two vacancies on St Mary’s Vestry for Ordinary Members, and I would strongly urge those who feel that they could offer something to assist in the management of our Church to speak to me before our AGM. Vestry membership is a rewarding role and provides an insight in to how we reach the decisions we do in our work here at Carden Place.
Iain Stewart has asked me to put out a call for more people to consider volunteering to read scripture and intercede at our worship. Should you feel so inclined, I encourage anyone who is considering this valuable ministry to approach Ian in the first instance.
I continue to draw you attention to our proposals for the Peace/Therapy Garden at the front of the Church. We have obtained some samples of ideas re what the garden could look like, and we (The Vestry) would value your opinion on what your preference might be. Please take some time to click on the following link where all will be revealed.https://stmaryscardenplace.org.uk/notices/west-end-garden-project/

“Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. We know more about war than we know about peace, more about killing than we know about living. We have grasped the mystery of the atom and rejected the Sermon on the Mount
