Collect of St Mark

Almighty God who has instructed your Holy Church with the heavenly doctrine of your Evangelist St Mark. Give us grace, that, not being like children carried away with every blast of vain doctrine, we may be established in the truth of your holy Gospel, through Jesus Christ our Lord

Amen

The Link – February 2015

On the 28th January we are having another ‘Conference’. Before Christmas Aaron from Jerusalem talked about the Jewish roots of the Christian faith. Following on from this we have organised a seminar in which Pat Davison and Jane Stewart will talk about the Passover. Pat and Jane are members of the Church’s Ministry to the Jewish people

Moses, the Torah, the prophets, wisdom, literature and the historical writings all laid the foundation for the coming of Christ. The Old testament was an interim measure, a ‘holding’ operation until the time had fully come and God decided that the time was ripe to send forth His beloved Son, born of a woman, the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Two members of the St John’s Ambulance spoke to us a the Mothers Union. It was inspiring. These wonderful people work quietly behind the scenes helping the sick. They give¬†generously of their time and they don’t receive a penny. Something I didn’t know – the basis of the St John’s Ambulance are the Beatitudes. It was a privilege to meet and listen to these “healers” of Christ.

God bless
