Dear FriendsOur Our
“To everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:”
As the summer comes to its natural end and we start to look ahead to the autumn and its changes, the words from Ecclesiastes remind us that this is part of the natural flow of life. For some this will be a time that brings changes: young people may be going back to school, or to new schools or to college; perhaps others will be starting new jobs; whilst others are adjusting to retirement or perhaps a new home or location. Nothing can or should stay the same. Change is constant and natural, even if it can, at times, be uncomfortable, particularly if the change is not one of our own choosing.
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 and twice a month on a Wednesday evening for exploring the spiritual side of life. In addition, the buildings are much used by the community. (The hall is not available for hire on Sundays.)

Hello, Welcome to Broxbourne. We warmly invite you and your family to worship with us on Sunday mornings at 10.30am.
September. The speaker in our worship on the 1st will be Pauline Hayes of the Isabel Hospice. On the following Sunday, Tim Potter will lead our Commissioning Service and introduce the theme of Holy Communion. On the 15th, Sandra Rose will talk about breaking bread together and on the 22nd Jackie Hall will look at Mark's account of the Lord's Supper. Ann Jack, the Interim Moderator, will bring her thoughts about the future of the church on the 29th.
In August our speakers chose their own themes. Caroline Levitt led worship on 4 August on the theme of trees. Dorothy Blatcher and teenagers from Young Life led the service on 11 August, including testimonies and readings inspired by Summer camp at Cairn Brae 20-26 July. On 18 and 25 August the speakers were Tony Davis and Evodian Fonyonga, whose theme was 'Grace'.
Our Holy Habit for July continued the theme of fellowship started in June. Our Holy Habit for May and June was prayer. We looked at different sorts of prayer, unanswered prayer and the prayer that Jesus prayed on the Mount of Olives.
In April we turned our minds to Easter. In March we explored 'Sharing resources – Sharing in the early church' (Acts 4:32-5:16) In January and February our services focused on Serving: Faith and Deeds (James v Ephesians 2:8); Washing feet (John 13:1-17); Serving others Matthew 25:35-40); Who is the greatest? (Mark 10:42-45)
