Christ’s Love Moves the World to Reconciliation and Unity
Right Rev Hamish Galloway has recently returned from the World Council of Churches’ 11th Assembly in Karlsruhe, Germany, an event which committed to providing a safe and healthy space for dialogue between incredibly diverse Christian expressions, but also, in the presence of Jewish, Muslim and Mormon religious leaders, dialogue between religions.
In his sermon today he considers some of the aspects of the Assembly.

“We are one in Christ. The love of Christ moves, reconciles, and unites the world, that is the motto of the Assembly in Karlsruhe. This goes beyond the Church. The whole world is involved, drawn into the love of Christ. A dream. We can give this dream a face on the ground, today.
We celebrate this day today as a celebration of encounter. We meet not so much as hosts and guests, but as friends, as sisters and brothers in the one Lord Jesus Christ. Even if one or the other is foreign and remains foreign, our hearts speak. And they express friendship, and affection and love. We are all fellow citizens of the saints and God’s housemates, united by Christ. This is a foretaste of heaven. Amen.”
Worship Services are held at 10am every Sunday. For those unable to join us in person, a recorded version will be available from 9am each week.
