Throughout Lent we have explored the Apostles Creed with guest preachers, discussion and debate.
I believe in God the Father Almighty,
maker of Heaven and Earth
and in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord
who was conceived by the Holy Ghost,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried;
he descended into hell
The third day he rose again from the dead,
he ascended into Heaven,
and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost;
the Holy Catholic Church;
the Communion of Saints;
the Forgiveness of Sins;
the Resurrection of the Body;
and the Life Everlasting.

Seeking new images to explore the ancient words of the apostles creed
We have had the last #Creed where we dived into the last three big promises. It was good. It's been a good five weeks exploring words we are very familiar with but now having taken a bite at them trying to understand them more deeply. Deep is the word to use because each word is full of different ways to think about things and full of experiences and stories.
One of the things asked was for people to put together even just a few words about the Creed. It could be a comment, or a reinterpretation of one line, or a story or reflection on the Creed. It could be a piece of poetry or a rewording of the whole thing. The idea is to collect the breadth of how we speak of the Creed today in a congregation that is healthy in its breadth. So if you would like to put pen to paper, or already have, then please send us your thoughts, anonymously, and we'll put it together with the sermons, discussion, questions, liturgy and comment that has been made round the Creed over the season of Lent.
Just a few words... it would also be a great witness to God's People engaging with the heritage of our faith and finding life in the eternal things...
