A new creation
How many times in our lives have we heard someone say something and we respond with our lips ‘Oh yes’ but in our minds we say ‘I don’t believe a word of it’? Part of our God-given brain tries to sort out fact from fiction, possible from impossible and reality from fantasy. If our brain did not function like that we would not survive either mentally or physically. But another part of our brain questions whether the conclusion we come to is correct. Without such questioning we would not make progress. What kind of logic made boats out of a material that does not float? Wood floats, metal sinks. But the accepted truth was questioned and the rest, as they say, is history.
Our mission is worshipping God and loving our neighbours. We have worship and groups and activities for all ages. You are assured of a friendly welcome. We provide a variety of times and styles of being church: Sunday mornings, twice a month on a Wednesday evening for exploring the spiritual side of life and monthly on Wednesday mornings informal prayer and reflection. In addition, the buildings are much used by the community.
