Learn more about these passages at church.

1st Reading 1 John 1:5-2:2 (page 1225 of the pew Bibles)

5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 6 If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

8 If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us.

2:1 My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father – Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. 2 He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.


2nd Reading John 1:6-13 (page 1063 of the pew Bibles)

6 There was a man sent from God whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.

9 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognise him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God – 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.

What we believe:
St. Leonard's and St. Margaret's are Church of England Churches, and we are part of the Diocese of Blackburn.

Fundamental to our Christian faith is the belief that the Bible is our ultimate authority, for this reason, clear Bible-based preaching is central to our Sunday and midweek services.

The key to understanding the Bible is the person of Jesus Christ - who He is, what He has done, what He will do and how we should respond to Him.
