We have good reason to celebrate Christmas 

Davids head

Dear Friends,

As I write to you this month I do so on a day that has seen astronomers out in the early dawn watching Jupiter and Venus in planetry conjunction. I’m not sure what all the fuss is about, but then I’m not an astronomer! Even less am I an astrologer! I see no life-controlling, nor life-explaining, meaning in the stars: they move around in a set pattern and that’s that. But there are times when events occur and you might well remember the event because a particular planet was visible or close to another, especially so in days before diaries, or an agreed way of measuring time, existed.

 

 

 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. (The hall is not available for hire on Sundays.)

Fruits of the spirit
