Following the sad news of the death of Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth, St George’s Church Morden will be open on Monday 19th September from 10am to 5pm.

We plan to show the State Funeral service from Westminster Abbey from 11am on the large screen and we invite people to come together to remember her life.

A book of condolence will be available for people to leave personal messages. Free refreshments will be served after the service. The times of opening will be confirmed shortly.

Everyone is most welcome.

The tongue reveals a lot about your health. I discovered this some years ago when helping a friend revise for her medical exams.

Take the colour.  A white tongue can show Candidiasis, a yeast infection cause by stress or medication.  A raspberry-coloured tongue can show Kawasaki disease, cause by a vitamin deficiency.  A black hairy tongue…I will spare you further details.

The Apostle John wrote to his Christian friends of his prayer “that you may enjoy good health…just as you are progressing spiritually” (3 John v2).

The signs of physical health are obvious but how can you know whether you are in good spiritual health? What does spiritual progress look like in practice?

Some of us maybe anxious about our relationship with God when we have no reason to be.  Others of us maybe confident when there is cause for concern.

The booklet, ‘Spiritual Healthcheck’ by Carl Laferton addresses these questions.  It consists of 16 short reflections with a Bible reading.

We will be sending out a copies to families at St George’s, and will be encouraging the church to work through it this term.

There are two ways you could take part:

The Private Consultation

You could work through the reflections yourself on your own. Set aside time. Do no more than one reflection a day. Read the Bible passage. Answer the application questions. Then pray. 15 minutes a day, that’s all it takes. But like physical exercise, a little, regular and often can make a big difference to your spiritual wellbeing. 

The Group Work Session

Alternatively, you could go through the book this term with our Growth Group.  From this Wednesday, every week from 8pm to 9.30pm, you can take part over the phone or online through Zoom.  This is ideal if you are flagging in motivation and you’d benefit from other people’s insight. You won’t need to read anything in advance. We’ll discuss a chapter and end by sharing prayer requests. You are welcome to try it out to see if it is for you.  (Get in touch for the Zoom details)

So go on. Open wide. Say ‘Ahhh.’ And see what God can do through a bit of spiritual exercise this term.

Watch the video for more details. You can get more copies of the booklet at the Good Book Company, if you want to send a copy to a friend or family member (www.thegoodbook.co.uk, 0333 123 0880).
