Hello and Welcome!
As we head into June we can just about smell summer arriving! Restrictions are lifting slowly and although we are still not confident, rather like looking forward to summer we are a little more optimistic. Stories that folks are sharing speak of the isolation, the lack of physical contact and the increased anxiety of being in crowds. The simple everyday mundane tasks that were a nuisance before became the highlight of the week – eg. grocery shopping! Our children, resilient though they are, are still adjusting to being back at school with routine and rules. Now though we are hopeful that like summer, the good days are coming!
The season in the Church is the same, whether today or back when the disciples walked with Jesus. We are in the season of Pentecost when the Spirit of the Holy Spirit came with wind and fire and language. The new church is in its infancy and trying to figure out how to be church. They started really simply. That is sharing the good news of Jesus, prayer and spending time together around meals. Today as the church also starts back meeting in person, we want to keep it simple! To share the good news that God loves us, that we have a purpose, to pray and spend time together. It will take time before we are able to do everything we hope to do, and we will have to adjust to this new world order. But we believe that God is with us whether we are in the fields of contentment or the valley of the shadow of death.
Do take time to drop by our Facebook page or YouTube channel for news, worship videos and more. Look for David Kennedy’s work on energy efficiency and how he can help you with yours, or visit CAP page for information on debt support. Just as summer can be elusive, remember we are open but limited. But if we can offer help, support or you are just curious about the God stuff, drop us a message.
May the Son shine on you!
God bless, love Rev Sarah.
The whole congregation of believers was united as one – one heart, one mind! They didn’t even claim ownership of their own possessions. No one said, “That’s mine; you can’t have it.” They shared everything. The apostles gave powerful witness to the resurrection of the Master Jesus, and grace was on all of them. Acts 4:32-33 (The Message)
"We love because He first loved us." (1 John 4:19)
We believe in God, who is the source of all life.
And in Jesus Christ, who shows us how to live.
And in His Holy Spirit, who makes this possible.
In gratitude for our lives, we are committed to helping all to move towards wholeness through our:-
Worship, Work & Witness.
