Welcome to St Mary's!
Friends of St Mary's
Our vision for Knighton, and for all of us, is Faith for Life – based on the words of Jesus: “I have come that they may have life; life in all its fullness” (John 10.10). During the present Coronavirus pandemic this can feel like a real challenge, as our lives will be so restricted for many weeks and the future is uncertain. It is tempting to think that as all our services are now suspended we will be 'less' as a church and 'less' as Christians - but I would like to urge you in God's grace to be more.
We need the same love and care that runs through our normal church life together to be at work now in more prayer for each other and in meeting more practical needs. We need the example and Spirit of Jesus to inspire us now to love our neighbours and to encourage each other even more.
So let’s give ourselves to prayer, as we have health and strength, for each other and our communities. Let's talk to those we sense might need help and offer what we can. And let’s ask that God will continue to help us follow the way of Jesus and build the Kingdom even in these unique times.
If you need some practical help or someone to talk to - or if you can offer this to others- please do phone or email us at the Church Office: 0116 270 2705 or firstname.lastname@example.org
in friendship and Christ's service
