Thinking about the special places in our community.

"Brilliant worship! You could see lots of hard work had gone into it and I learnt some new things about Easter! Rev Alice 

 

"What a fantastic play, great to see the children learning new languages." 

 

"The story of Christ's love for us beautifully portrayed. Great music  and well done to all the children, confident and enthusiastic."

 

"Lovely to see all the children growing in confidence. A lovely Easter story."

Mother's Day Service in Church

The Worship Committee did a marvellous job at the Mother's Day Service. They read beautiful readings, contributed a thoughtful power point, helped with the action songs and planted daffodil bulbs to give out to Mums. Thank you so much Worship Committee.

Let us pray,

God help us to build a flourishing community

Help us to grow into love.

Help us to find our roots of inspiration.

Help us to have a perspective that is filled with unfading hope.

God help us to build a flourishing community

Guide us to have unity and togetherness.

Guide us to have a respect of people, religion and nations.

Guide us to not to be afraid of change and express our thoughts and beliefs with humbleness.

God help us to build a flourishing community

Help us to care for our neighbours

Help us to trust and be thankful for our ‘garden fence’ chatter.

Help us to recognise chance made us neighbours and choice made us friends.

God help us to build a flourishing community

We do this in your name,

Amen
