Welcome and Parish Diary 

          Welcome to Hardington Vale   Fields


Christ the King Norton St


Ephesians 1.15-23

Matthew 25.31-46

 Reader’s Reflection

This Sunday we celebrate Christ the King: a king who turns the accepted concept of kingship upside down. Jesus faces the religious and social elite of his day with hard words. He challenges the world’s ideas of worthiness and power. Let’s pray that we continue to take kingship seriously, for he is worthy: He is a king who courageous, subversive, fascinating, and full of God’s grace. In today’s readings he will challenge us in our comfort zone, and will show us how to be part of his wonderful kingdom.
