Think of what we can do rather than what we can't
Our nation's athletes have had an amazing summer in Rio. Something to
celebrate! What a huge total of medals have been brought back here and all
thanks to those who have dedicated many hours a day for many days and months
and years to reach the peak of performance that we saw, and those who trained and encouraged and enabled them to do so.
In the middle of October there is a special celebration, and that is for the Paralympians, a celebration they thoroughly deserve. One of the things that was so good about the Paralympics was the emphasis on the sport. That may seem a strange thing to say: of course the Paralympics is about the sport so what else would be covered? But so often when we engage with people who have disabilities, we focus on the disability rather than on what the person is able to do. The Paralympics has no concessions.
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.
