Autumn Themes at St Wulstans


We linger in Luke 15 for the whole of September, thinking about Jesus’ parables about belonging

  • “Of sheep and coins” Luke 15:1-10
  • “The little brother” Luke 15:11-20
  • “Homecoming” Luke 15:20-23
  • “The big brother” Luke 15:24-32


In October, we are taking an overview of a few important Christian cornerstones

  • “H is for harvest” Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
  • “H is for hope” John 9
  • “H is for healing” Isaiah 35.3–6
  • “H is for holiness” Isaiah 6:1-8
