• We can all too easily get confused with the church............... We refer to its physicality as a building and a location, but it is neither, the church is us! A group of people, whether they meet for worship in a Cathedral or under a tree, are both church. Also it can be something we 'do' rather than something we 'are', if church is like a club, we turn up participate and leave, something has gone badly wrong. The church as God's family exists to share to and care for a broken world. We can't 'retire' from it, if we have owned its deeper meaning. How can we find ways to change people's perception of church and be more like the people that God intends (have a look at Acts 2:42-47 for example). We'd love to know your thoughts.

    With Love and Prayers, Simon and Louise.

    Last week's question. Which son wanted his father at his party (Luke 15:11-32) The answer is neither, they were both lost, it should be the parable of the prodigal sons.

    Our Beliefs:

    As Christians we believe in the love of God, shown to all the world through God sending His one and only Son, Jesus, to free us from our sins which have distanced us as a people from God.

    Jesus as our Lord and Saviour teaches us that God is very close to us, and wants dwell within our hearts and be part of our everyday lives.  God, through His Holy Spirit that is God's very self, equips us so we can serve Him with joy in this life, and look forward to eternal life through the death and Resurrection of His Son.

    If you would like to further your own spiritual journey or learn about the Christian faith, then please contact one of our clergy team through the Parish Office, who will be more than happy to help.​
