Do join us this time next week as we start our Lenten journey together... a season of facing reality with God, whether that's tending to the needs of our world, navigating challenges of life, letting something go, or taking something up.
There will be no 12noon communion service on that day.
The next Silent Prayer will take place on Thursday 28th February at 6:00pm. Do join us.
Further dates: Friday 5th April at 12noon and Thursday 9th May at 6:00pm.
Our 10am Service on the 10th February is an opportunity to ask God how we can generously sow and serve in this season. You can download an information pack by clicking the button below.
This Sunday evening we're doing things differently.
We're having a Taize service. Taize started out in a community in France. It includes simple, repetitive songs with beautiful harmonies, readings, reflections and periods of silence.
Do join us, our Space team and our wonderful friends from Songways as we explore the theme 'The Light Has Dawned' from Isaiah 9.
Refreshments will be served in the café from 6pm and we'll start at 6:30pm.
You are warmly invited to St Swithin's Newcomers' Tea at 4pm on Sunday 27th January at the Vicarage.
A chance to get to know Tim, Jo and some members of the church family informally over coffee and cake.
We want to make it really easy for you to get connected and to feel at home at St Swithin’s.
Please RSVP by emailing email@example.com and we’ll send you the address.
We can't wait to see you there!
Please continue to pray for the family and friends of Sue East and all those connected with St Andrew's School as they return for the new term. Sue's funeral will take place on Wednesday 16th January at 2pm at Bath Abbey, followed by refreshments back here at St Swithin's. All are welcome to attend. If you're able to help with the tea, please let the office know.
Join us for lunch on Sunday 13th January 2019 for Mike's Munch! It is a fantastic opportunity to catch up with old friends, meet new ones and enjoy wonderful food.
Tickets available from Mike in the Café or contact the church office. Adults £5.00, Under 12s £2.50. Let us if you have dietary requirements.
On Sunday Tim laid down the challenge to pray this prayer. It's a bold prayer to make at the start of 2019 or even to say every morning. There's no pressure to commit to this! It's totally up to you.
I am no longer my own, but yours.
Put me to what you will, rank me with whom you will;
put me to doing, put me to suffering;
let me be employed for you, or laid aside for you,
exalted for you, or brought low for you;
let me be full,
let me be empty,
let me have all things,
let me have nothing:
I freely and wholeheartedly yield all things
to your pleasure and disposal.
And now, glorious and blessed God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
you are mine and I am yours. So be it.
And the covenant now made on earth, let it be ratified in heaven.
(Prayer by John Wesley)
I’m Fran. I live in Saltford with my husband, Adrian and our dog Barney! We have two children, Becca (21) who is currently in her final year at Worcester University and studying Criminology and Tom (18) who is finishing his first term at Guildford School of Acting where he is studying Theatre Production. We are officially ‘empty-nesters’ and it’s taking some getting used to!
