tomorrow can be different for us all

As a part of the Church of England we are a part of the global church.  We see all we do as part of the bigger picture that is our local community, our town, our nation and the whole earth. Most Sundays we offer a quiet and shorter service at 9.00am and a family friendly service at 10.30am. The values are the same at both, aiming for flexibility within a structure and a contemporary feel. We desire to join in with God the Father's mission: to make his Son Jesus Christ known in word and action as led by the Holy Spirit.
Whatever the reason you are visiting our website, please feel at home with us. Explore the pages and find out more about what we hope for and what we are doing to make that happen. Join us in worship and enjoy the peace of being in God's presence. Join us in fellowship at the end of the services. Participate with us in the love of God and help us to reach out in His love to our community and beyond.

From David this week.....

So we finally come to the end of our time encountering the Lord Jesus in the Gospel of Mark. We see Jesus in strident mood, expounding the Scriptures on who He is, and challenging hypocrisy and empty religion. It is not our knowledge, outward show or years as a Christian that in themselves build the foundations of God’s kingdom. It is our heart, willingness to sacrifice and offering of our everything that are of eternal value. The widow contributed a couple of pennies, but it was 100% of her wealth. She gave not out of her wealth but out of her poverty (Mark 12:44). God will multiply all that is thankfully and sacrificially offered. 
In light of the terrorist atrocity in Manchester, Bishop Stephen has reminded us, whilst not negating the need for justice, we must counter evil with good (Romans 12:17-21) Such evidence of the work of the devil and lost-ness of the perpetrators, creates in me a number of responses: Holy anger towards evil; Pain for those killed and injured; Incentive to intercede for our nation (and others affected); Passion to share the good news of Jesus Christ in word and deed; Perspective about what I get up tight about. How about you?
 Revd Canon David Hague
