A New Season

As the evenings shorten and the warmth of the sun starts to fade, so the season changes and we say farewell to summer and look towards the reds and golds of autumn.  There are other seasons changing as well.   Youngsters have new classes, new schools, college or university.  Those who married over the summer will be settling down in a new pattern of life.   For some there are house moves and new jobs on the horizon.

For PODChurch there will be a new season as Tim, Liz and the family move on, and a new pattern of leadership and meeting together emerges.

In all those changes of season, one thing remains the same: the trustworthiness of God.  One of my favourite songs includes the lyric, “All of my life, in every season, you are still God, and I have a reason to praise, I have  a reason to worship.”

Whatever changes in season you are facing over the coming months I pray that you will know God’s presence with you.

New Things

After five years in Priorslee, Tim and Liz Carter and their family will be moving to Wellington this October.  PODChurch will be continuing with the team and a new church leader who will be recruited in the Autumn.  We are all looking forward to the new things that God is going to do in Priorslee, and across Telford, as these changes happen.

Summer in Priorslee

Following the sunshine of half term, the weather has taken a bit of a turn for the worse, but we’ve still got lots of exciting things happening.  This past weekend a bit of rain couldn’t dampen the spirits at the Big Lunch, with dancing dragons, bouncy castles, loads of glitter and a small cake mountain.

We’re now looking forward to exploring Fatherhood, giving out Pimms and Ice Lollies, and our very first PODCafe.  We will also be announcing the winners of the Photography competition.  It’s all good.

Out the Door

When we chose the name Priorslee Open Door Church we did so because we want to be known as a welcoming church that is easy to get into, and also because we don’t intend to be shut away behind closed doors, we plan to be out in the community.  On Sunday we went to visit River Community Church in Lawley as they were out and about in their community, giving away flowers and commemorative books celebrating the Queen’s birthday.  It was great to see the positive response from most people that we met.   This week we are launching a monthly Charity Pub Quiz at the Flaming Grill at 8pm on Wednesday night.  This is part of our plan to be out, making this a better and stronger community to live in.

A few brave souls

What with the clocks going forward, it was a bit of struggle, but we actually welcomed Easter Sunday at dawn this year.
