Lambeg Parish Church has been witnessing to the Gospel of Christ from the beginning of the l4th century and possibly even earlier. Generations of men,women and children have had their spiritual needs met by a church that has accommodated itself to the changing conditions of the area.
Beginning as a rural parish for centuries, it became an industrial region with the setting up of paper, linen, and thread industries. Thousands were employed in these industries,which achieved world-wide renown. The influx of workers led to rebuilding schemes in the church to accommodate the growing number of people living within  the parish boundaries. Today, the parish of Lambeg has become a suburban parish, with new housing, even within old estates such as Clonmore and Hilden. Whilst times have changed, people and their spiritual needs remain the same, sinners in need of God’s grace. As Jesus Christ, the Lord, remains the same, ‘yesterday, today and forever’, the Gospel proclaimed to generations in the past needs to be proclaimed to the present generation of people within our parish. God’s church is always on mission until Christ returns. To that end, we need to explore together as a parish how we move forward with the Gospel in this era of Lambeg’s history.How do we reach a new generation? How can we develop our witness today?
Hopefully, later this year, we can explore this together in a ‘Parish Consultation’ as we consider our responsibility of witnessing to our generation about the wonderful Good News of Jesus Christ.
So, watch this space
