Dear FriendsOur Our
“See what a morning…”
“Up from the grave he arose…”
“Jesus Christ is risen today…”
Did you get to sing your favourite Easter song this year?
And is your garden beautiful? It’s that time of year, isn’t it – and even the slight chill in the wind can’t detract from the petals in so many colours – white, yellow, red, magenta, deep blue, orange, gleaming in the spring sun.
Two great sources of emotion and joy, then – Easter hymns and spring flowers. In Germany, daffodils get in on both acts – they are known as “Easter bells”.
Easter was an emotional time for the first disciples.
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.)

On 12 May, Ian Matthews takes up the theme, giving us his own take on prayer.
John Morton will look at unanswered prayer on 19 May, in a service which will finish with Holy Comunion and be followed by a hunger lunch for Christian Aid at the Parish Centre.
On 26 May we shall look at the prayer that Jesus prayed on the Mount of Olives.
Thy Kingdom Come - a Season of Prayer 30 May to 9 June 2019, the 11 days between Ascension and Pentecost. We shall find ways to join the prayers of Christians across our area both in public worship and in private prayer. (see www.thykingdomcome.global)
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)
