An evening on the Communion of Saints

Saints evening 500xThe Week of Prayer for Christian Unity will take place again this year on 18-25 January. We will be observing it among churches working together in Didsbury in at least two ways:

On Sunday 25 January, many of the churches will participate in a pulpit exchange. Please look for further details at your own place of worship.

On Tuesday 20 January, Didsbury Baptist Church will host an evening on the Communion of Saints. All are welcome to attend what we hope will be an open and ecumenical conversation. Brian Haymes and Richard Kidd, co-authors, with Paul Fiddes, of Baptists and the Communion of Saints will help us to think about a neglected doctrine not usually associated with Baptists. Please join us if you can and bring your questions!

Witness at the Cross

Churches Working Together in Didsbury have erected a cross next to Caffe Nero in Didsbury. Each day in Holy Week we will gather at the cross at 1pm for 15 minutes of prayer and reflection. Our theme will be the 7 last words (the words of Jesus spoken from the cross). The daily programme is as follows:

Monday 2 April 1pm
‘Truly I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise’ (Luke 23.43)

Tuesday 3 April 1pm
‘Woman, this is your son’ (John 19.26)

Wednesday 4 April 1pm
‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’ (Matthew 27.46)

Thursday 5 April 1pm
‘I thirst’ (John 19.28)

Friday 6 April
United Good Friday Service
10.45am Didsbury Methodist Church
1pm at the cross
‘It is finished’ (John 19.30)

Saturday 7 April 1pm
‘Father, into your hands I commend my spirit’ (Luke 23.46)

Please join with us if you can; you would be most welcome.
