Our primary purposes as a Church are to worship God and tell out in our community the Good News of the Gospel of His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.
So, here you will find details of the regular weekly services at St Robert’s as well as information about Junior Church, Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals
Next Sunday will be June 17th – Third Sunday after Trinity. The principal service at St Robert’s will be Morning Worship at 9.15am
In the Gospel reading we hear Jesus’s parable of the mustard seed. The obvious message is there; a minute thing dies, germinates and is ‘born again’ – and from its subsequent, tremendous, growth a great thing emerges, beneficial to all of God’s creation. But mustard is like Himalayan Balsam, explosive growth, very often where you don’t expect or think you want it…..and horribly difficult to eradicate! So there is a second message for us in this parable; once germinated, the Kingdom of God has a habit of appearing where least expected (and frankly where it is often very inconvenient!), growing speedily and robustly…..and once it has a hold, it can’t be got rid of. So this tale is of something very much ‘a two-edged sword’……there is a hidden message – be careful what you wish for – it could take you by surprise and be very different from what you either expected or hoped for……and you’re not going to be able to tame it! So rejoice and be glad when it happens – because it is God at work.
There will be BCP Holy Communion at 8.00am but NO Evensong at 6.00pm. Instead there is a service of Choral Evensong at St James’s, Birstwith at 6.30pm, sung by a combined choir from several churches throughout the Harrogate Deanery. Here are more details
You are welcome to join the regular services of Morning Prayer held at 9.15am on Mondays and Wednesdays at St Robert’s and on Tuesdays at St Michael’s. Get a good start to your day with this short service of prayer, reading and reflection.
