Reflecting Jesus

Central Telford Parish (CTP) is a group of Churches across the middle of Telford with a diversity of worship styles, buildings and communities, ranging from Lawley across to Malinslee, and from Ketley down to Dawley, Stirchley and Brookside. With such a large Parish and so many Churches, it means that something is always happening, somewhere in CTP!

In John 8:12 Jesus said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life" but in Matthew 5:14 he said "You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.” Our aim in CTP is to try and bring these two verses together - to be mirrors that reflect Jesus in our lives and together to form a giant mirror ball …

Over the coming years, our Vision for Central Telford is 
“To see the light of Jesus shine into every corner of our community.” Our desire is to take Jesus into every street, house and community around us, so that everyone sees Jesus as he is and experiences his love for themselves. The challenge is the word “every”. This is not about us restricting the light to the easy places and in the apparently “easy” ways, but getting stuck into the task of taking Jesus into the darkest corners and the toughest parts of Central Telford.  

On a day-to-day basis, we have a
 Mission Statement as to what we need to be doing in our lives, in order to achieve the Parish Vision, and that is “Reflecting Jesus Everywhere.” It is about a daily choice we make to point our lives at the light of Jesus in order to reflect him, to make sure our mirrors are clean and shiny and being willing to be pointed in whatever direction he wants to point us. 

During the present pandemic, we want to be a people who can listen to the concerns of those around us in Telford and then be praying for them and showing them something of the hope that can be found in Christ alone.
