Focus

Throughout the year we will have a different monthly focus to help explore our three themes; celebrating, living and sharing God's word.

Scripture shapes our actions, our choices and how we relate to God, to ourselves, to our neighbours and to our world.

It guides all our relationships and how we live our lives. We hear ‘The God Who Speaks’ no matter what the circumstance or predicament.

Our monthly focus shines a light on a particular aspect of life and worship – it might be a closer look at a saint inspired by Scripture, or one of the Church’s great seasons like Advent, Lent or Easter.
