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.....

We continue with the second part of 1Corinthians 4, and part two of the sermon on apostolic ministry. St Paul’s is addressing an arrogant, judgemental attitude, which is damaging the apostolic outward thrust of the church. Specifically in the church and apostle is one sent somewhere to represent the Lord Jesus to share the gospel of the kingdom. Sound character in the apostle is essential as those undertaking this ministry come under attack. Paul exhorts the Corinthian Christians with a warning and an appeal that he wishes to come with a father-heart to them not to punish, rather in a gentle spirit, if they heed his warning. This is all part of the overseeing task to keep the church on the firm foundation of God’s ‘DNA’ in order to extend the Kingdom of God. Paul’s strategy is to demonstrate this, so others may ‘imitate’ him, just as his ‘apprentice’ Timothy has been formed as a minister of the gospel. Paul is sending Timothy to remind the Corinthians of Paul's way of life. As the the Spirit of God confronts the spirit of the world, we can expect to witness the power of God and not just fine words.
