A warm welcome awaits you in Bowdon Parish

I wonder when you last received a card which started with those words? It’s nice to be invited, isn’t it. Whether it’s a wedding invitation, a call from a friend asking if you’d like to go for a coffee, a neighbour popping round to see whether you’re up for a trip to the cinema or would like to go to a concert, it’s really nice to be on the receiving end of an invitation. And yet my suspicion is that, although we like being invited to something, we may not find it very easy to be the one who issues the invitation.

One way of reading the Bible is to see it as one long invitation from God to everyone to join him on the adventure of living life to the full. Some of Jesus’s earliest recorded words are deliberately invitational: ‘Come, follow me’. There was even an occasion when Jesus knew the fear factor was so high, because Zacchaeus was one of the widely disliked tax collectors, that he decided to invite himself: ‘Zacchaeus, I’m coming to your place for tea.’ It was a life-changing encounter (Luke, 19: 1-10).

The Church is still very much in the invitation business. On this website you’ll find a comprehensive catalogue of the huge variety of services, groups and activities which are run, partnered or sponsored by people in our church congregations here in Bowdon. If you are already part of one of these, please would you choose a friend you could invite to join you?

If you haven’t joined us on our adventure of living life to the full, especially if you have recently moved to the area, we hope you will take a look through what’s on offer to see what you might enjoy. And please consider yourself very warmly invited.

Ian Rumsey, Vicar of Bowdon
