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.....

What is James’ over-riding concern in his Letter? It is how we live out the Christian life. Do we live distinctively in words and works? In how we speak and in our actions? Or are we, who profess to believe in one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit living out our lives just the same as anyone else? Do others see anything different about you, that might enable them see Jesus in you? To be different is to be holy. To be holy is not to be perfect, but to live a life set apart for Jesus. To live in such a way is what James means by wisdom. Not lots of knowledge or qualifications. God’s Word in the  Bible and Spirit work on the lives of the believer to transform us towards the image of Christ. To be Christ-like is to be wise. It’s no use saying profound or clever things if they are motivated by bitterness or arrogance. This simply projects our ‘stuff’ onto others. Wisdom - what a great present for Father’s day. Let’s pray for wisdom from heaven; a free gift: Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. (James 1:17).
Revd Canon David Hague
