Today’s Service

Our hymn will be “Happy” by Pharrell

“Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do”

The readings today are from two new bestsellers from some of our favourite UK priestesses, touching on two key issues for us – diet and parenting:

“Truly Happy Baby” – by Holly Willoughby

“Cook Happy, Cook Healthy” – by Fearne Cotton.Cook Happy, Cook healthyTruly Happy Baby

The sermon and ministry time will be brought to you by Paul McKenna. By way of brief introduction, here is the blurb from his wonderfully titled book, “I Can Make You Happy”:

I can make you happy“Do you want to be happier? Do you want to stop feeling bad right now? Do you want to experience greater joy than ever before? What if it was possible to feel happier than you had ever imagined?”

Of course, children’s groups will be provided throughout the service, supporting every good parent’s primary goal – “I just want them to be happy”.

 

Coming This Week

Practical session on homemaking, using the new Kondo system “Spark Joy: the Japanese Art of Tidying”.

On Wednesday we will also continue our “tough questions” midweek series – this week, a real humdinger – “status anxiety, abuse of power, and abandonment of the elderly – could the unfettered pursuit of personal happiness in some way possibly be ‘selfish’ or even ‘harmful’?”  That will be followed next week with a session on a key figure from history, “Jesus Christ – man of sorrows or happy chappy?”

 

Happy today to you from the world’s fastest growing religion!
