Prepare the Way

Prepare the Way

ADVENT 

in the Brooke Benefice

Another Church year begins as we keep the season of Advent.  It is a time of preparation, as we ready ourselves to celebrate Christmas, and remind ourselves that we await the coming of Jesus in majesty.  In our services we will be linking into the Diocesan theme for the year : being pastoral, and we will be introducing some contemporary Christians who have offered their pastoral services in the work of God.

There are full details of all our services here, on the web-site, and everyone is welcome to come along.

Christ is the King - O friends rejoice!

Christ is the King - O friends rejoice!

This Sunday is the last of the Church year: the feast of Christ the King.  Our worship will be a great celebration of Christ's coming reign and we will be thinking about our membership of the Kingdom of God.

As we celebrate, we'll look back over the year and look for all the signs of God's kingdom breaking into our lives.  We'll remember those who have come for Baptism and those who have begun their married life in our churches.  We'll give thanks again for all those who have gone before us and set us such a rich example of faithful service and discipleship.  As we pray together, we'll remember our commitment to doing our bit to grow God's kingdom and our calling to "tell the good news".  

Everyone is welcome to our special celebration service which is at Kirstead Church at 10.30am on Sunday (20th November).  If you can't come in person, why not join us on Zoom.  If you've got something else on that morning then use your phone or smart speaker to set an alarm for 11am and spend one minute joining in with our worship wherever you are.

Come ye thankful people come.......

Come ye thankful people come.......

As we continue our month of "Creationtide", this week is the beginning of our Harvest Thanksgiving services.

Have you enjoyed a wide variety of food this week?  Is your garden full of fruit and vegetables?  Do you have clean water in your taps?  Were the shelves in the supermarket stocked when you went shopping?  

If the answer to any of these questions is "yes" then come and say "thank you" to God for all this provision.

Everyone is welcome to come to a service - even if you've never been before.  You can join in, using the booklets we provide, or just sit and take in the atmosphere.  Why not come and give us a try?

Full details of all our havest services are in the events section of our web-site.

With sorrow......

With sorrow......

It is with sadness that we acknowledge the death of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.  Her life of dedicated service to our country has been an example to us all and we give thanks for all that she has given us.

All our churches are open for private prayer, with books of condolence available.  Our services on Sunday 11th September will begin with short Acts of Commemoration.  There will be a Service of Commemoration on Sunday 18th September at 3pm in Brooke Church.

Please join in praying for King Charles and the Royal Family at this time.

Eco-Church Award

Eco-Church Award

Congratulations!

Many congratulations to St Peter's Church at Brooke who have been awarded their Bronze Eco-Church Award.  The award takes note of the church's commitment to the environment through worship, buildings and grounds, community projects and personal lifestyle.  Working towards it has involved supporting Climate Justice projects, taking care of the conservation areas in the churchyard, changing the lightbulbs to LED and organising regular creation themed worship.

Huge thanks must go to John Ash who has been our "Eco-Champion" and has put in hours of work to ensure that we scored well on each category.

We hope that over the coming months some of our other churches will begin to work for their Bronze award - and who knows Brooke might try for silver next!
