Mission

On 'Mission Sunday 13th May' we would like to thank the following speakers

10:30am Service: Keith Judson, Hospice Chaplin

Primrose Hospice Chaplaincy
Facing a life-limiting illness can be very disorientating. We may struggle to come to terms with how things will change for us, our families and friends. Sometimes we find ourselves asking questions about the value, meaning and purpose of our lives.

Conversations often take place at Primrose in which staff and volunteers listen with sensitivity to these kinds of concerns. The Chaplain has a particular role in offering friendship and support to patients and their families, whatever their background or beliefs.

Keith Judson joined us in October 2014, after nearly eight years in regional Baptist ministry. He is seconded by Bromsgrove Baptist Church to serve as Chaplain to Primrose Hospice. His work includes spending time with patients and family members, home and hospital visits, as well as leading acts of shared reflection and remembrance.

 

6:30pm Service: Andy Bissex, Church Relationship Manager

Bible Society
Working in over 200 countries, Bible Society is a charity on a global mission to bring the Bible to life for every man, woman and child. We believe that when people engage with the Bible, lives can change – for good.

That single mission drives a huge range of activities. In some parts of the world, bringing the Bible to life focuses on translation and distribution projects. Elsewhere it focuses on leadership training, or literacy programmes, or interfaith dialogue. Closer to home, in England and Wales, it focuses on advocacy effort, schools outreach and devotional resources.
