Or go to the hompage of ICS by clicking on the…

Bishop Robert’s Lent Appeal

2021 Bishop’s Lent Appeal for the English Church of Liège (Belgium) My Lent Appeal this year is concerned with restarting ordained ministry in a chaplaincy that has gone through tough times but where there is great potential. The new chaplain is one of the (very few) stipendiary, trained curates from our own diocese. The Reverend Guy Diakese trained for the priesthood in Nigeria and Rome. He speaks French, English and Italian fluently and we are…

Life Groups at HTU

Dear Brothers and Sisters,  This new year we are still in lockdown. It is almost a year since we last had a ‘normal’, full Sunday service together. Most of us miss the regular worship and fellowship.  To find a way to connect with others and grow together, we want to start Life Groups.

Bishop Robert’s Christmas Message

In one of our best-loved carols, Christina Rossetti situates the birth of Jesus ‘in the bleak midwinter’. She paints a severe and freezing manger scene, with howling wind and deep snow. She represents the frosted earth and water with iron and stone. From the biblical narrative, it seems unlikely that Jesus was born in the bleak mid-winter, as the shepherds would not be putting their sheep out to pasture in freezing conditions. But that does not stop…

A supported Charity update

Here are a number of photos from Priya Mobach showing how (with the assistance of funds donated to charitable giving) she has organised another charity project in Sri Lanka on November 7th.
