To mark the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity
(January 18th - 25th), St Matthew's — Yiewsley's Church of England Parish Church — and Yiewsley Baptist Church are swapping ministers on Sunday 22nd January. Revd Julia Sheffield from St Matthew's is going to preach at the Baptist Church and Revd Martin Aston from the Baptist Church will be preaching at St Matthew's.
Although Revd Sue Groom, Vicar of St Matthew's, has preached at Yiewsley Baptist Church previously, it's a first time experience for Revd Julia, who admits that she has never taken part in a Baptist service before. And whilst Revd Martin has preached outside St Matthew's on the High Street several times, it will be the first time on record that a Baptist minister has taken the pulpit inside St Matthew's.
Both St Matthew's and Yiewsley Baptist Church are also involved with the other churches in Yiewsley and West Drayton in planning Soul2 2006
(29th July - 6th August), a week when the churches will be working together to give practical support to the local community by providing a children's holiday club, gardening for the elderly and other activities.
