Saint Mary Magdalene Church, Bolney
Who is the Church for?
The church of Saint Mary Magdalene in the village of Bolney is for you. It always seems a bit of a cliché to say that everyone is welcome - but it is true.
What can I expect?
You will receive a friendly welcome, of course, but we won’t embarrass or overwhelm you. Nor will you be under scrutiny to see if you are holding the hymn book upside down, or whatever.
It’s important to understand that though we love and care for the beautiful and sacred building in which we meet, “the Church” is in fact the people who get together there. We are all united by a shared desire to grow in relationship with God.
A Questioning Faith
Don’t be put off if you think you don’t know or understand enough about God, Christianity, or the Church. We have a saying that “You belong before you believe.” In other words, we recognise that faith is a relationship between ourselves and God that needs to unfold, or to grow. The church offers space and time to allow that to happen. It is a place which enables you to explore your thinking about God, or deepen our relationship with him.
What to do next?
Simply come along one Sunday morning - or if you would like to talk about it first, contact Rev’d Keith Littlejohn by telephone 01403 865945 or email, firstname.lastname@example.org
