We believe in the good news that Jesus came into this world to enable us to understand that God loves us and wants us to know him as our Father. Jesus gave His life for us to restore that relationship. We would love to share this good news with you and you are welcome at any of our services or events.

May Message from Elizabeth
It seems a long time since writing my last 'message from the minister'. Thank you to all of you for your prayers and support while I was on Sabbatical. Those three months were a time of retreat, for study, reflection, spiritual feeding, experiences out of circuit and renewal. Hopefully I have returned strengthened in my ministry because of it.
Earlier this month we shared our church anniversary weekend, with the theme 'the battle belongs to the Lord'. As part of it we developed a 'battle plan', deciding to focus on praise, prayer, pastoral care and parties to help our church growth. It is always important to have a plan or purpose, both in our church life and our individual Christian lives. So I would like to invite you to make your own battle plan. It could be you feel called to get involved in one of the mentioned areas, or make time to visit someone, or spend more time in prayer and devotion. June also begins Bible Month, where we join in the connexion-wide initiative to study the book of James. Maybe this is something you could do, on your own or in one of the house groups.
The opposite of retreat is advance. It is good to be sharing ministry and mission with you again as we go forward together.
