Revd Philip Hawthorn
Every Sunday morning I thank God for the privilege of being the priest at Charlcombe. The very stones seem to sing back the praise they have absorbed over a millennium. But church is about people: our living stones carry the praise of God today. Whatever your tradition, you won’t fail to sense the spirit of hospitality that is in the church. At 9am each week we gather and open ourselves in this holy space to all God would have us do and be. Here we seek to follow the mission of contemplation and action: waiting on God in the space and quiet and, nourished with God’s love, to share it in the world by how we live.
‘I came to bring life, and life to the full,’ said Jesus. Amen.
