"Living waters, living Church"

Sunday 17th March 2013
The River Rede from the steps of All Saints' Church
All the churches of this deanery have a "spiritual strapline" devised by local people to convey something of what is special about their church.  All Saints' Corsenside (between West and East Woodburn) couldn't be nearer to the river  --  with all its associations of baptism, of  life flowing on, of Jesus as the "water of life" and so on, making "Living waters, living Church" a good slogan for this place.
     I was here for the 11 o'clock Communion after having celebrated the 9.30 at St Cuthbert's Bellingham, where I returned in the afternoon for STARS (the under-5's service for Sunday Toddlers And RelativeS) and then on to the Rectory to meet a couple for marriage preparation.
