The week of 3rd December

Messy Church continues to go from strength to strength. Last Friday’s very messy and creative activities showed the children how the Lord our Shepherd loves and cares for every sheep. Then the calming reflection & worship song up in the Sanctuary, with dimmed lights, had everyone equally engaged. Afterwards at teatime, we all enjoyed pizza. Please keep Messy Church in your prayers and if you would like to volunteer for our ‘4th Friday of each month’ sessions, please contact Sue Jacobs. Sessions re-start in 2024 and more….

The week of 29th October

Last Sunday’s One World/BHM service was a blessing by all accounts. With some new faces joining our regular congregation, the beauty of diversity in our community was truly evident and rightly celebrated. Here’s a graphic of the 4 R’s (Recognise, Respect, Relationships & Represent) to remind us of those life habits we need to exhibit and more….

The week of 22nd October

Dear all, having more or less emerged from the cloud of tissues and lemsip, I just wanted to thank you all for the great send-off on Friday. I appreciate it all so much, the spread, the presents and cards, and most of all you lovely beings coming along. I thought Methodists on leaving a post got a posy, a card and a warm handshake, so I was well shook at your munificence. A huge thanks to everyone who must have put in a lot of work be-hind the scenes, especially our Rach and our Caroline. I hope to be up and about for church on Sunday. Much love, Elin……and more….

To God be the glory! When can we do it again?!and more….
