tomorrow can be different for us all

As a part of the Church of England we are a part of the global church.  We see all we do as part of the bigger picture that is our local community, our town, our nation and the whole earth. Most Sundays we offer a quiet and shorter service at 9.00am and a family friendly service at 10.30am. The values are the same at both, aiming for flexibility within a structure and a contemporary feel. We desire to join in with God the Father's mission: to make his Son Jesus Christ known in word and action as led by the Holy Spirit.
Whatever the reason you are visiting our website, please feel at home with us. Explore the pages and find out more about what we hope for and what we are doing to make that happen. Join us in worship and enjoy the peace of being in God's presence. Join us in fellowship at the end of the services. Participate with us in the love of God and help us to reach out in His love to our community and beyond.

From David this week.....

Part of sharpening our spiritual tools is to understand the human condition and our need for salvation. To be saved. What from? The human condition. Ourselves! sIn is a three letter word with ‘I’ in the middle. prIde is a five letter word with ‘I’ in the middle. In Christ we are dead to sin (read Romans 6:1-14), yet we still sin as Christians. St Paul, who wrote those words in Romans chapter 6, also wrote in chapter 7: I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do (v15). In Christ we are new creations (2Cor 5:17). Our sin was dealt with on the Cross. As we take hold of that truth by repentance and faith in Jesus (salvation) the Holy Spirit transforms us bit by bit (sanctification - see 2Cor3:18). Sometimes we can have a major block in dying to unhelpful habits. The illness of addiction is one such case. Understanding addiction is the subject for this Sunday with a guest speaker Janis Feely MBE, who initiated and ran The Living Room addiction recovery centre for 15 years. It is possible to be set free from addiction. It is possible to be set free from sin. The first step is to admit that a life centred on self (I) is unmanageable, and the second is that we need God to be set free. There is no other way!
