Tough Questions: If there is going to be a "new heaven and a new earth", why care for the environment?

“Christians are called to be heralds of the new creation, by pointing forward to the future hope that we have in Jesus. This means living today as we will live in a renewed and restored creation, where heaven and earth are one. We look forward to the day when God’s people will live in harmony with God, one another, and creation itself. Our interactions with creation in the present should point forward to this future reality,” says The Rev’d Charlie Lacey from St Andrew’s, Springfield

Tough questions: who wrote the Bible and which translation should we use?

“Problems of interpretation often occur when the Bible is read one dimensionally – in other words, when it is all taken to be more or less the same genre. Confusion will always arise if we misunderstand the genre of a text that we are reading…Reading the Bible is a much richer experience when we understand the different genres and what they are meant to convey,” says The Rev’d Charlie Lacey from St Andrew’s, Springfield

Community of The Way: renewal highlights

“The highlight of the recent Community of The Way commissioning service for me was receiving a prayer shawl, symbolising community belonging. The prayer shawls were presented to us, along with a San Damiano cross, by Bishop John Roundhill during the service,” says Stacey McCowan from Community of The Way and St Andrew’s, Springfield
