Spring Term Worship Themes 2016-2017



Themes, objectives, websites and resources


This term we will be exploring one of the most well-known verses in the bible. St Paul’s letter to the Corinthians in which he explores what Love is.

Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful;  it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;  it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. So faith, hope, love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.       1 Corinthians 13:4-7 & 13 Revised Standard Version (RSV)
