Many people have many preconceptions about God and especially the God Christians supposedly believe in. Many of our ideas about God we have inherited, absorbed or assumed – often influenced by art and culture, popular myth or family tradition.But who is God? What do Christians actually believe about God?The Bible says if we want to know what God is like we need to consider Jesus – his words, his actions, his character, his choices etc. Jesus loved to tell stories and in many of those stories he helps us to understand more about God and what God is really like. Throughout August we will be looking at several of those stories to discover all sorts of surprising truths about our unexpected God. Join us in church or online as we explore the following:Our Unexpected God…..invites us to a party – Luke 14 v15-24…..looks for the lost – Luke 15 v1-7…..longs for us to come home – Luke 15 v11-24…..gives us a second chance – Luke 13 v6-9…..gives good things R
While Sunday worship has resumed in the church building, we acknowledge for some people it remains much safer to stay at home to worship. So each Sunday we will continue to upload worship services to the St. Martin in the Bull Ring page on YouTube. These services are posted each Sunday but are available at any time. Please come and join us!
Each Sunday, at 10.30am, there will be a simple service of Holy Communion at St. Martin’s. However our online worship will continue on the St. Martin in the Bull Ring page on YouTube, but for those without access to online worship this is an opportunity to gather for said worship, with scriptures, simple sermon, prayers of intercession, and sharing in communion.
Every Thursday and Saturday, between 1-4pm, St. Martin in the Bull Ring is partially open for private prayer. Right in the city centre of Birmingham, come and find a place of peace and rest where you can quietly pray, reflect or meditate. You may wish to light a candle in our prayer chapel. In order for us all to stay healthy and safe, please follow the guidance of our volunteer team.
