Spiritual Life

St. Cassian, Church of England

Dear Friends, This New Year is certainly a time for considering the future. The ‘old year’ said “Goodbye” to many years of partnership with St. Mary, Stone; St. George, St. Chad and St. Cecilia, in Kidderminster; and this January it’s “all change” as we enter the new rural Benefice of St. Cassian, with Holy Trinity, Belbroughton; and its daughter church, St. Mark, Fairfield. A time of renewal and opportunity. From January, Revd. Canon Wyn Benyon will be overseeing the new benefice until a new appointment is made, and we will be supported by the Office at Belbroughton and all admin. tasks undertaken from there. The Rev. Hildred will remain as priest with the four churches which are the more urban segment of Kidderminster East. On December 31st we also said “Goodbye” and “Thank You” to Chris Strickland, our Organist & Choirmaster of many years. We wish him all the best and thank him for all that he has done.

At Bromsgrove we offer worship in a variety of styles, mostly informal, always including readings from the Bible which will be explained and applied to today, songs and hymns some from the days of the Wesleys and many written in the last few years. Currently the majority of Sunday mornings singing is led by an organ but at least once a month by a worship band of different instruments and vocalists. During the week there are opportunities to join smaller groups to read, discuss and pray for each other. We offer God’s love in word and actions on site (see weekly diary); in homes (through for example Crosslinks Befriending) and in the community often in partnership with other Christian churches – for example Street Pastors. If you come to a Sunday Service or week day activity we hope you will feel welcome. The church is committed to a Safeguarding Policy for children and vulnerable adults, has access for wheel chair users, T loop for audibly impaired people and large print word version of all that is needed in worship. (most of what we sing and say is projected on to screens). _______________________________________________________________ Oaks Community Church The Oaks Community Church meets at ‘The Oaks’ Community Centre at Harvington (on the main A 450, close to Mustow Green traffic island).
