to the Churches Together in Lichfield web site, which is a visible sign of the Churches' commitment as we seek to deepen our communion with Christ and with one another, and proclaim the Gospel together by common witness and service.
Our strength comes from people from different traditions and backgrounds, by exploring new ways to work and worship together.
Many churches, one purpose
There are many different Christian churches and denominations, but all have the same basic calling - to worship God, to share the good news about Jesus Christ and to work for the good of all people.
So we often need to work together, as well as co-ordinate the work we do separately. When we do, we are acting as Churches Together.
But being Churches Together means more than that. It means commitment by each church and denomination to deepen its fellowship with the others and, without losing what makes each interestingly different, to work with them towards a greater visible unity.
A New Book by Warren Bardsley
‘Wilderness : A journey through depression’ is the title of Warren Bardsley’snew book to be published in September by Church in the Market Place.
‘This is a really honest account of the way in which depression often creeps up on us unawares, leaving us completely disabled and hopeless. The sense of abandonment can seem complete. The underlying message of the book is that drug therapy and counselling are often effective in lifting depression and that these are God-given - as is the gift of steadfast and sympathetic friends’. (from the Foreword by Dr Richard Henshaw)
‘..a personal crisis such as burnout or depression can often lead to transformation. This book illuminates that possibility. A warm and insightful read.’ (Dr Stephen Wright, Sacred Space Foundation)
The book will retail at a price between £6 and £7 and can be ordered in advance from Warren.
