St Ursula's shares the sorrow and horror felt by all the people of New Zealand at last week's murders during worship in Christchurch. Helen's husband, David Marshall, is a specialist in Christian-Musiim relations, and so is our friend Douglas Pratt, who has written an article ( for a New Zealand news site. The ignorance of the terrorist responsible for the Chch shootings is palpable. But this is the stuff of Islamophobia.

A very warm welcome to our new Chaplain, Revd Helen Marshall, and her husband David. 🙏
We celebrated Helen's first Sunday service with us at St Ursula's Church, Bern.

[03/09/19]   we had a lovely time at our afternoon tea and quiz yesterday. The quiz was just set right, not too easy, and not too difficult. The teams all had great fun, with the Seegirls pipping the Beetles to first place and the old dodgers being one point behind them in 3rd place. A big thanks to all who came, and especially to Roland for cleaning up in the kitchen at the end. We will do it again later in the year.

Clearing up recently, we found some batches of old Junior Church photos from 1996 (there's a link to them from "Tidying the Church" in Do you recognize any of these people from 23 years ago?

This morning we had our Mission Sunday service. As well as saying 'Thank you' and 'goodbye' to Revd Ian Eglin and his wife Caroline, we also welcomed Ms Ursula Käufeler from the Heilsarmsee (Salvation Army)
After the service, Ms Käufeler joined us for lunch and told us about the work of the Passantenhifle and the care for those who have nowhere else to turn in their need.⛪

Thank you to all those who helped with the bring and share lunch. 👏🙂

25 years ago this month, the first group of women were ordained as priests in the Church of England. Since then, ordained women have contributed in so many ways to the life of the Church - both public and private, seen and unseen. As parish priests, chaplains, archdeacons, deans of cathedrals and, praise God, now bishops too.

Today we welcomed women from across the Church to Lambeth Palace for a special service to mark this anniversary.

From some of those first priests, to those now training for ordination, we heard unique and very different stories of the joys and challenges of discerning a call to ordained ministry - and living that out. As I said in the service: you are each known, loved and chosen by God to live out your own distinct calling. Praise God for that diversity.

But there's also the question of how long we carry on ‘celebrating’ anniversaries like this. In a sense, you want the ministry of women to become something unremarkable. Something that's just part of the normal fabric of the life of the Church. But we need to recognise that we're not there yet. As well as the high points and moments of celebration, many women still face huge challenges.

Many of those who joined us at Lambeth Palace today have been pioneers as they work out what it means to be an ordained woman in the Church of England – not just for themselves and their communities, but for the whole of the Body of Christ.

Today let's bear witness to those who paved the way in 1994, as well as upholding those whose way into ministry has been opened up since.

As women you are part of the priestly ministry that Jesus Christ shares with all His people. I thank God for your courage, strength and faithfulness as we mark this occasion together.

An insider look at what some creche helpers get up to when it is quiet on a Sunday morning :). They felt very proud finishing that jigsaw. It only took 15 minutes, but it said 18 months to 2 years on the box.

Simple steps. #ecochurch.

Simple choices that you make every day have a huge impact. Waste minimization is an easy way to do a lot of good.

We and members of the Swedish Lutheran church enjoyed a relaxed evening with our Old Catholic friends at their parish rooms on 18 January, enjoying raclette (with a bingo session to win the leftovers!).

A Joyful and Blessed Christmas to you all!

Wishing all a blessed Christmas, and looking forward to seeing you at one of our services.
