    Sunday (19 January)

    Sunday is the Third Sunday of Epiphany. Having been baptized Jesus begins his ministry according to John’s Gospel in spectacular fashion. He changes water into wine at a wedding feast in Cana of Galilee.

    John’s Gospel is not a report but a work of art. It’s a book of signs. Signs are dense cultural symbols that are understood at a glance. In the same way now that we recognise a Nike swoosh and a whole world is conjured up for us so John, writing in Greek for a sophisticated Jewish audience, expands their horizons with the intoxicating vison of heaven revealed through Christ who is the new wine of the kingdom.

    Fleetingly we catch a glimpse (or perhaps more accurately) a flavour of that when we come to communion. Our capacity to get what John is on about depends on the extent to which we have imbibed the gospel. That connection is enriched by communion. Baptized with water we become wine.

    This Week

    The children’s choir is on Tuesday in church at 3.45pm.

    Looking Ahead

    The Annual Parochial Church Meeting will be on Tuesday 24 April, 7.30pm in church with dinner. Over the last couple of years, the Parochial Church Council and a working group has been working on the implications of the architect’s report on the condition of the church. We are building up to a big conversation about the future. Life has moved on since the Annunciation was opened. Now is the time for a new vision – and it needs to be one in which the congregation and neighbourhood is involved. So please put the date in your diary and come along on the evening. Thank you.

    Sunday (12 January)

    We’re now in the Second Sunday of the Epiphany season. The gospel narrative is moving swiftly on beyond the baptism of Jesus to his early ministry.

    Jesus didn’t just recruit disciples by calling them. People also came because others took them along. ‘Come and see’ said Philip to Nathaniel. Nathaniel did – and he stayed.

    Making new disciples is the name of the game in today’s church. Coming and seeing for ourselves is one thing but going and telling and bringing others follows on.

    This isn’t heavy-handed. Someone told me this week that they had been invited to the Annunciation by a friend. Having come they decided that it was for them. It would be good to see this repeated over again.

    This Week

    The children’s choir is on Tuesday in church at 3.45pm.

    The PCC meets the same evening at 7.30pm. There will be news soon about the heating and a new tenant for the crypt.

    Please note

    Sunday (7 January)

    … We’ll be celebrating one of the feasts of the church that is easily swallowed up in Christmas – The Epiphany marking the arrival of the Magi with their gifts.

    The Epiphany season goes on to mark the baptism of Jesus and the first miracle when water was turned to wine at Cana in Galilee.

    These great episodes each show/manifest who Christ is. The gifts of the wise men spell out his destiny as prophet, priest and king. At his baptism a voice declares that he is God’s Son with the Spirit descending upon him in the form of a dove. At Cana, the ordinary becomes exuberant.

    Rich gifts manifest a rich life - one in which we all share by virtue of baptism.

    Once Again, Thank You

    … to everyone who sent the clergy Christmas greetings, card and gifts. We are very grateful to everyone for their generosity.

    This Week

    … the children’s choir begins again so if you would like your child to join please contact me. Rehearsals are on Tuesdays in church at 3.45pm.
