A Mission of Repentance in the time of this terrible war

The Church’s response to the war, in the form of the National Mission, was attracting interest in central/east Berkshire.

The National Mission

Meetings for instruction and devotion are being arranged in various centres of the Rural Deanery. Twyford is the Centre for the parishes of Hurst, Remenham, Ruscombe, Woodley and Wargrave.

It is proposed to hold a meeting on Wednesday, September 20th, beginning in the Parish Hall, Twyford, at 3.30pm. and ending, after tea, with a service in Church. The name of the speaker, and other particulars, will be announced later.

It is hoped that a second meeting will be arranged at the same hour on Saturday, September 23rd, for Teachers and all who have the charge of children.

The Witness of the Church

When we speak of the Message of God to the Nation in the time of this terrible war and of the Mission of Repentance, we naturally think of the great responsibility of the Church of England.

The Church is the witness to Truth and we must thank God that the Church of England has been faithful in her stewardship.

When we penitently recall the sins of selfishness, the pursuit of wealth, and the heedlessness of God, which are at the root of this war, we must remember that the Church of England has all along been bearing faithful witness against them both in life and doctrine.
