Clean / Unclean

Now the apostles and the believers who were in Judea heard that the Gentiles had also accepted the word of God. So when Peter went up to Jerusalem, the circumcised believers criticized him, saying, "Why did you go to uncircumcised men and eat with them?" Acts 11:1-3

Post-Christendom means we live in a world a lot more similar to the world in which Acts took place than we are really used to as a church. How do we relate to the world outside?

The Father and I are One

At that time the festival of the Dedication took place in Jerusalem. It was winter, and Jesus was walking in the temple, in the portico of Solomon. So the Jews gathered around him and said to him, ‘How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly.’ Jesus answered, ‘I have told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father’s name testify to me; but you do not believe, because you do not belong to my sheep. My sheep hear my voice. I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish.

Breakfast with Jesus

Simon Peter said to them, "I am going fishing." They said to him, "We will go with you." They went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing.

Easter at Cafechurch

Join us this Easter for three things:

Looking to Palm Sunday

As Jesus rode along, people kept spreading their cloaks on the road.
As he was now approaching the path down from the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to praise God joyfully with a loud voice for all the deeds of power that they had seen, saying, "Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven, and glory in the highest heaven!"
Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, "Teacher, order your disciples to stop."
He answered, "I tell you, if these were silent, the stones would shout out."

Grief, Rage, Hope

Having gone to all the effort of setting up for Grief, Rage, Hope on the weekend, why not make the most of it? So for Caravan, our contemplative communion service, we are going to make use of the stations and labyrinth. We will engage our grief, rage, and hope together.

29/3 at 7pm for byo dinner, serious bit starts at 8pm.

Right-related-ness

What does it mean to be in right relationship? Are we? Is it different from ideas of "being good" or virtue? What difference would it make if we thought in terms of right-relationship rather than virtue? Is it more like being a stand-alone hero, or like being a parrot in a rainforest?

Chicken Soup for the Soul

For time out of mind, Cafechurch has attempted to bring some reality to the idea of "every member ministry." One of those ways we call "chicken soup for the soul", because it had cultural currency when Cafechurch started. Still, even if the name is a bit dated, the idea is not. Everyone is invited to bring something with them which made you laugh or cry or otherwise think of God in the last little while. It might be a song, a little video, a story, a joke... something you can share.

Tuesday 15/3/2022 at 7pm - byo dinner for 7pm, "serious bit" starts at 8pm.

The Transfiguration

Now about eight days after these sayings Jesus took with him Peter and John and James, and went up on the mountain to pray. And while he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became dazzling white. Luke 9:28-29

The Transfiguration of Jesus was a strikingly strange thing to modern ears. But far more significant than the externals is what it means: Jesus really is God's revelation into the world.

Join us for Caravan - our monthly communion - on Tuesday 22/2/22 at 7pm for byo dinner and 8pm for the service.
