I am Jenny Mills and I am the Minister here at Newport Pagnell United Reformed Church. As the Minister I am called to enable, inspire, facilitate, care for and lead us all as we work together for God’s kingdom here on earth.
Over the past 7 years we have developed as a Church, the redeveloped Church building (completed in 2006) is now a busy place and we have sought new ways of working together as a church and of engaging with local people. We have worship for all ages throughout the week and also groups use the space for Pilates, singing, drama and the Historical Society; it is also used on an occasional basis for Town Council meetings and other events. We are now also looking to develop our Hall, the Mead Centre, into a more flexible and accessible space in the centre of the town (click here for details).
We have Sunday morning worship at 10.30am each week, with Young Church, all welcome;
On the 1st Sunday of the Month we share Communion together in the round;
On the second Sunday of the month we have morning worship at 10.30 am and our children and young people share worship over at the Methodist Church.
On the third Sunday of the month the children and young people from the Methodist Church come and share worship and Young Church with us and we are just beginning All age Sunday school where all ages have the choice to stay in church for the sermon or go to other spaces in the church or hall for craft, singing, reading the papers, etc as we believe that learning together is an important part of who we are as followers of Jesus.
On the Last Sunday of the Month it is an all age service led by a variety of ages and the music is often led by our Young People’s group, M4. We begin at 9.30am with breakfast in the hall and then come over to the Church at 10.15am where we sing together and worship together, this is followed by coffee and chat!
During the week we have a variety of worship opportunities for all ages- Toddler Praise, Pilots, Meeting Point, Women’s Own, M4 and occasional services depending on the Church year.
All these worship opportunities enable us all to seek to grow in faith together and learn more about the gospel message of love, joy, peace and hope. I believe that developing good relationships, forging friendships and sharing in fellowship are vital to a spiritually vibrant Church, as we journey together.
We have a statement we aspire to as a Church: At the centre of the town, at the heart of the community. All we do is measured against this.
Jesus calls us, as relational beings, to come together in community, to care for each other and share together, living life inspired and guided by our faith. We are all on journeys in our lives, some of us have been journeying in faith for many years, even from childhood, and others may be newer to faith or searching for meaning in life. Together we can grow in faith.
All are welcome.
We believe we are called together as a community to live out God’s love for the world. God desires the best for everyone and wants us all to be able to realise our true potential as human beings.
To do this, we need to actively engage with the local community being the hands and feet for God in the world. Our reason for reaching out is driven by our faith in God as revealed through Jesus Christ. Together we can see where God is at work and allow God’s Spirit to work through our lives to bring about changes and challenge injustices. This we pray will come about as we seek to live out the Gospel message of God’s love for all.
Please drop me an email or call, if you want to get in touch. Or why not come along to the Church one day?
