    Thought for the Month
    Amanda Berry

    Prayer for November

    With the coming of October and the leaves on the trees starting to change colour, it must be harvest time again!

    Harvest is a time to reflect on our creative role within God’s creation and our responsibilities for his earth. With the rest of creation we are a living community, created to work together to give praise and glory to God.

    Today villagers do not work together to bring in the harvest, even in rural areas, so is it an outdated tradition and what does Harvest mean for a city Centre Church?

    Our views on harvest need to be transformed to give it a rightful place within our church and community. Moving away from seeing it as the gathering of crops, but as a gathering of talents and a celebration of art. We celebrate the food from seed to the table, the growers’ gifts, the chefs’ creativity, the fruits of our local artists’ and musicians’ labour and how we can pass on these gifts to our local community. So for this Harvest time, be creative, make something new, and be inspired because we were put on this earth not only to be caretakers but to use our God-given creativity.

    Gracious Lord,

    Thank you for creation and the incredible gifts and talents you so generously entrust to us.

    May we appreciate and develop these talents, always recognising that they come from you and remain yours.
    Guide us in using our talents to bring a creative spark and new possibilities to your world, living out our call to be an integral part of your creative force.

    Latest comment on Trip Advisor

    "Don't miss this little gem of a church - still retains all the love that was endowed on it by its builders. Very peaceful inside, although life throbs outside. Close your eyes and soak up the atmosphere."
