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.....

Last Tuesday Bishop Peter (Barking) came to commission a new Christian Community here at CoGS, and to baptise and confirm members of this group formed though the Alpha Course. It was a wonderful celebration of God’s grace in Jesus and our response. Under the leadership of David Harrigan this group meets fortnightly on Tuesday evenings and are a new congregation as part of CoGS. This is an early sign of how the Lord is leading us into a multiplicity of Christian Communities in the one church, each with a mission focus. This also shows the role of the pioneer gift to plant seeds of God’s Kingdom (Matt 13:31-32), then to nurture the growth brought by the Lord. In this way mission shapes the form of the church. As the God’s Kingdom grows in the world so the essence of Christ spreads to shape society too (Matt 13:33). When people realise just how attractive and valuable is life permeated by Christ, they will proactively seek it to take hold of it (Matt 13:44-45). Let’s find lots of ways in groups small and large to demonstrate God’s Kingdom and sow the seeds of Revival in our nation.
Revd Canon David Hague
