Dear Church In light of the recent guidelines issued by the UK government, and our belief that we are to honour these for the collective health of our nation and to reduce the burden on the NHS, we have decided to temporarily suspend all physical church services and church related meetings.This suspension will last for the next two Sundays at least, at which point we will reassess the situation.  There will not be a physical service for you to attend on 22nd March or 29th March. We are mindful of God’s instruction......

Dear everyone Happy New Year!  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, celebrating the birth of our Saviour Jesus Christ, and are looking forward to the year ahead. It is my intention to start writing regular newsletters to the Church, within which I will share our plans for the future, what God has been speaking to me about and some reflections about what God is doing in and through our Church.  At this point, I am not sure how regular the letters will be (perhaps every other month) but I hope......

I thought his paper on Jesus’ emotions was fantastic!  I’d never......

It’s nearly 11 months since we launched and, as Pastor, I am genuinely delighted at all God has achieved through us in that time. Sometimes, when we gather on a Sunday and one of our big families is away or there are a few people missing because it’s the summer holidays, the temptation is to look around and be disappointed by the number of people in the room. But, when I stop and reflect on the journey so far, it’s pretty sensational.  We started with 9 adults and 5 children.  There are......
