THIRD SUNDAY OF THE YEAR
The Lord Teaches us His Ways
Like Jonah, Christ was sent to preach repentance. He calls us to change our ways. We are not to become engrossed in the world, but to believe the good news and live for the Kingdom of God.

WEEK OF PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY is traditionally observed by Christians around the world from 18-25th January – the Octave of St Peter and St Paul. Churches Together in Bexley warmly invites you to our annual Unity Service on Sunday 21 January kindly hosted by St John the Evangelist, Penhill Road, DA5 1HX at 3.00pm with light refreshments afterwards. Now, more than ever, with Christianity under attack around the world, we need to show we can live Our Lord’s Prayer “That they may be one”. Kathy Fogarty, Parish Unity Contact.
