Welcome to St Cuthbert's of Lindisfarne, Castle Vale

Word of God: You must therefore be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect.(Matthew 5:48) 

Word for Today: It might seem at first that the call to be perfect as our heavenly Father is perfect, is setting us up to fail, and so it would be, if we rested our efforts in our strength alone. God’s Grace is amply sufficient however, for all our needs If we rely on our capacities then we will fail. We are vulnerable in our own strength, but invincible in God’s strength.
