The Parish of Burchetts Green

Revds Dilys Woodmoore and Maurice Skinner have submitted these modern takes on well-known Christian texts

At the beginning of the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:1-10 ), Jesus commends eight beautiful qualities. But what do the Beatitudes mean for social media and life online? The Bishop of Oxford offered this version for prayerful reflection.


         I will not add to the store of hate in the world, but I will try to be courageous in standing up          for what is right and true.


We are called to be Christlike; to be a more contemplative, compassionate and courageous church for the sake of God’s world.

Every blessing
