You’re welcome as we follow the way to Jesus and of Jesus

* We’re about serving our local community, the Hucknall area – that’s what’s written!  Grow & Serve

* But the figure suggests much more. Jesus Christ is central. He has outstretched hands. 2000 years ago he was murdered by being nailed to a cross by the leaders of his community. But as they were doing this, he said, ‘Father forgive them, they don’t realise what they’re doing.’ Through Jesus we are learning how to forgive as we learn we can be forgiven.

* But Jesus Christ is also alive – raised from death by God, and he welcomes all into his inclusive community. He invites us to know love, forgiveness and the possibility of new life.

* The figure also suggests someone praying or worshipping. We worship and serve him in praise and prayer. Like Jesus’ first followers we say, ‘Lord teach us to pray.’ And like a singer from ancient times, ‘Bless the Lord, O my soul.’

* You’re welcome to drop in or get stuck in! Visit or sign on!
