Secret Poets Society

poetry-in-garden-web11

We don’t have a secret poet’s society – but sometimes it get’s left off the calendar by mistake.

In fact, it’s open to anyone who would like to come. Whether you like to listen to others read some poetry, read a favourite poem yourself or share your own poetry – you will get a warm welcome and, I think, drinks and maybe a biscuit or two.

Why not come along at 1pm on Friday 16th September and see if the poetry stirs you

Slow Summer

CIS:E.331-2006
CIS:E.331-2006

Summer can feel like a slower time with less on – a good chance to watch the Olympics perhaps.

But not everything stops for the summer. So in honour of the fact that competitive poetry has not been included in the Olympics since 1948 our poetry group will be on in August as usual, 19th August at 1pm in the hall.

We are not competitive though, so come along to share a poem that you like – or even one that you wrote.

False teaching and how to avoid it.

This week in the sermon we will be looking at false teachers and false teaching. How to recognise them both and how to avoid false teaching. Historic creeds and statements of faith can be really helpful in doing this.
The 1658 Savoy Declaration of faith is the biggy for Congregationalism. It can be found here (Savoy Declaration)
It will take some time to look through but it’s worth it.

Older and shorter is the Nicene Creed. First put together in AD 325 and tweaked in AD 381. It can be found here (Nicene Creed)
