Cafe Church- 4pm at Monmouth Priory

St Pauls journey

This September we begin a new series exploring the journeys of the apostle Paul.

Life a bit dull? Fancy an adventure? After facing strange places and customs, mob justice, prison and all sorts of adventures, I suspect that the apostle Paul would have loved a quiet life!

Our personal Christian pilgrimage should be an adventure. Open your eyes to the wonder and excitement of what’s on the way. Come and join us this Sunday at 4pm in St Mary’s Priory for a family-friendly, café style service. Let’s explore just something of what God has in store for our life today.

Ethics and Faith Talks Have Resumed

Dominic

Saturday morning talks at the Monmouth Priory restarted on Saturday 4th September with Bishop Dominic tackling the question: “Are there Christian ethics or just ethics?” He quoted the prophet Micah, who condemned legalisms that are labelled ‘ethics’. “Micah said that what God required is, ‘to do justice, love mercy and to walk humbly with your God’. Institutionalised religion has a habit of losing sight of its goal,” said Bishop Dominic, “and getting bogged down in laws and rules and dividing the sheep from the goats. Sensible rules like not eating animals that are prone to tapeworms or sea food that might be poisonous became religious laws.”
