Jesus says, “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you are also to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34-35

Welcoming the Rev. Alison Cozens

It was a wonderful occasion on Sunday as we welcomed the Rev. Alison and her husband Peter to Newtown and Lozells. We were joined by many friends from St. Paul and St. Silas, from the Diocese of Birmingham, from other local churches, and from Rev. Alison's previous parishes in Leicester and Dunfermline. We gave a warm welcome to Alison, and together we offered our prayers for her ministry to come in this church and in this city. 

Many thanks to all those who contributed to the day, including cleaning the church, setting up for lunch, organizing the catering and clearing up afterwards. Photos to follow on the frontpage and in the gallery!

 

 

 

Coming down from the mountain

We had a real treat on Sunday as Adeola, our newly licensed lay reader, showed us the importance of holding onto Christ in our everyday lives. She used the example of the Transfiguration, where the disciplines James, John and Peter see a glimspse of Jesus' glory on a mountaintop. Many of us have had moments like this, where God's glory is revealed to us and we feel like we are on top of the world. But like the disciples we cannot live on the mountaintop; we have to come down into our everyday lives and work out God's will in the world. 

Many thanks again to everyone who helped make night shelter such a successful. It was a real privilege to serve again this year, and I hope everyone involved enjoyed it. 

A reminder that our new priest, Rev. Alison, is being welcomed to St. George's on Sunday (18th). The service starts at 10.30am as normal, but please do arrive early to welcome all our guests. A lunch will be served after the service.
