Worshipping God, making new disciples and transforming communities

Welcome to the Alcester Minster Website

Christmas is coming!

 

Make space for Jesus

 

As we look forward to celebrate Christmas this year, we are remembering and celebrating an event of extraordinary impact, but at the time might have easily gone unnoticed, and is in danger of getting hidden again.  God intended the apparently everyday event of a baby’s birth in Bethlehem to fill us with awe and wonder, because of the nature of the baby.

 

To remember that Christmas is about the Son of God entering our world, some Christians adopt the practice of laying an extra place at the Christmas lunch table.

 

Just as we need to plan our invites in advance, it is good to use the season of Advent, which begins on 2 December, to plan to make space for welcoming Jesus into our Christmas celebration.

 

Our Christmas service times can be downloaded here .

 

See the noticeboard page for details of service times and other upcoming events.

God bless,

What is Alcester Minster?

It is a way of grouping together five Church of England parishes, comprising eight churches in and around Alcester with a single Ministry Team and a commitment to work together.  Many of our activities are therefore Minster-wide, designed for all who attend the churches and all who live in the parishes.  Some activities are specific to a particular parish.

 

The parishes are:

Alcester (St Nicholas)

Arrow and Weethley (Holy Trinity and St James)

Coughton and Sambourne (St Peter and Sambourne)

Haselor (St Mary and All Saints)

Kinwarton and Great Alne (St Mary the Virgin

and St Mary Magdalen)

 

Information about services in each Minster Church is available from the drop down menu on the Churches tab and also at this site too:  http://www.achurchnearyou.com/
