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.....
On Sunday 3rd we had a series of inspiring 2-minute testimonies in response to the question, “Why do you follow Jesus?” Three principal themes emerged. I have listed key words from the testimonies under these headings.
1. Who Jesus is:
love, life example; gave His life, death, resurrection, conquers death, Father, friend, truth, never leaves us, Saviour from sin, just
2. What Jesus has done for us / Difference He makes:
forgiveness, healing, salvation, eternal life, life beyond grave, relationship, finds the lost, acceptance, meets our needs, freedom, removes fear, contentment, fruit of Spirit, transformation, meaning and purpose, talks with us, guidance with decisions, hope for the future, peace from worry and anxiety
3. What we do as a consequence:
ask Jesus to come in, trust, obey, Kingdom of God, transformation, apply to life, gives us something to give away,
I shall bring my 2-minute testimony this week, and reflect on how we can each develop our faith stories to share with others, and also together on Sunday 24th begin to produce a leaflet, which we can give to others. Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, to whom else shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We believe and know that you are the Holy One of God.” John 6:67-69
