“Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!"
Isaiah 43 v 18 and 19
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.

Message from Elizabeth
This Sunday begins the journey of Advent for us as a church, a time of waiting as much as preparation. Watching and Waiting is the theme for the CTED Advent course this year. And it is also the theme for where we find ourselves at this time: waiting for the restrictions to end, waiting for the Government announcements so we can know where we are and what we can do, waiting to see what Christmas will be like for us.
In this time, may we know God waiting with us, sharing in our situation, and leading us to the hope that comes with Christ.
A month of prayer for our country during lockdown
Various church leaders have proposed that we should devote ourselves to praying for our country and the world during this month of lockdown. One suggestion is these topics for prayer for each day:
Sunday: family, friends, and loved ones;
Monday: schools and colleges, children, and young people;
Tuesday: the elderly, those who are isolated and vulnerable;
Wednesday: businesses, the workplace, and economic wellbeing;
Thursday: the NHS and other key workers;
Friday: national and local governments;
Saturday: all who are grieving, those suffering with physical and mental health.
Lesley Newton (Chair of the District) will be leading a time of prayer at 6pm on Thursday evenings which you can see by following this link. You can also watch it and take part after the event if that time does not work for you.
