Take 5

The Revd Chris Morley, who has led worship at Martin Way on a number of occasions, has started a venture, called “Take Five”. Each daily thought is a suggestion for how each of us might grow spiritually and come closer to God by reflecting that day on a particular theme. He is inviting people to Take Five minutes each day to join him, either on YouTube or Facebook.

Singing the Faith

In September 2011, Singing the Faith became the first complete and balanced successor to Hymns and Psalms, as the standard hymn book for use in Methodist services. Since its inception, Singing the Faith Plus has published approaching 100 hymn texts not included in the Singing the Faith hymn book. Some of the hymns have been available before in other places; most have not. Some of the authors had already been featured in Singing the Faith; many had not. To bring you a flavour, we’ll occasionally include the words of a new one.

Let the cross shine out

In this house all people will be welcome.
In this house all people will find love.
Open the doors so all the world may enter.
Open your hearts and share the love of God.

Let the cross shine out like a beacon
bringing hope to all who need your love.
As we sing our song of adoration
let our lives reflect the love of God.

We are here to worship in God’s presence,
singing songs of worship, songs of love.
Just as this place bears witness to God’s splendour
may our lives bear witness to his love.

Let the cross shine out like a beacon
bringing hope to all who need your love.
As we sing our song of adoration
let our lives reflect the love of God.

For the Church is more than bricks and concrete,
more than glass and metal, nails and wood.
It’s in the lives of all of those who serve him
and who show the world the love of God.

Let the cross shine out like a beacon
bringing hope to all who need your love.
As we sing our song of adoration
let our lives reflect the love of God.

You may or may not know that we also have a Facebook page where you can keep up to date with what else is happening in our church family. It can be accessed by clicking on the small blue Facebook logo wherever it pops up on this site or by visting www.facebook.com/martinwaymethodist or by searching for @martinwaymethodist in a browser or on Facebook itself.

Stories of Hope

We all like a good story and in spite of this year being a washout due to “you-know-what” there are some good stories out there among the tragedies that have occurred. As part of the Methodist Church #GodIsWithUs campaign for Advent you are invited, to quote their website “read a new story about an individual’s journey through this year. These stories include people who have felt the painful effects of isolation this year, who have experienced insecurity, who have struggled with poor mental health, who have lost loved ones – like so many millions of others. But ultimately, incredibly, God’s loving presence offers them powerful hope.”

Find out how by reading a new story as it is unlocked each day, just like an Advent calendar, at findingourhope.co.uk.

Reading other people’s stories can be uplifting but may also be upsetting. If you want to speak to somebody, or you need other help, we encourage you to go to that website’s “Need help?” page and use the relevant links which take you a range of expert support services.
