Children and families all join together for the first part of our all-age worship at 10am. Parents/carers can then take under 3s to the coffee lounge where our creche includes some short stories from the bible, whilst children aged 3 and over are meeting in the Queen Margaret Hall for an interactive time of learning through stories, crafts, activities and more. Everyone is then invited to come back into church for the end of the service, where we share a little of what we've been learning. Coffee, juice and biscuits are available after the service.

The excitement of Christmas is always best experienced as you observe
children approach the door behind which are the “presents”. We
all will perhaps recall our own childhood excitement, frustration, anticipation
and then wonder as the signal was given and we were “good to go” and discover
the treasures awaiting us. All
that stands between you and the treasure is some...
In Luke 18 at verse 9 we come across the story of two
men heading up to the temple to pray – both gain access through the door but
only one into the heart, mind and presence of God.One, the
Pharisee, had, it seems, a bit of an attitude problem and with it a big dose of
pride. The other man, a tax
collector, had something the likes of Ghandi, Mother Teresa, Dr Martin Luther
The day began well – a good but early breakfast and
then off to catch the bus, which, to our delight, arrived on time. A quick change to bus No 2 and before
we knew it, we were at the quay side purchasing our tickets for the imminently
departing boat to Spinalonga.We were on the beautiful, sunny and warm island of
Crete. A leisurely sail and after
just 25 minutes we arrived on the...

At our midweek
service a few weeks ago Derek Hobson reminded us, with the aid of some ‘L’

sense ‘disciples’.Over the last few
months in all our services we explored the significance of the seven
sacred spaces found within the monastic tradition. By examining how we might
allow our lives to be...

WE HAVE A DREAM ….. well maybe?
We have a dream
of a church
that is full of people who are excited and passionate about the God they
worship. A church that when it gathers together to worship, does so with a
sense of excitement and anticipation. Every time they worship their praise
raises the roof – Heaven opens – their prayers rise up and they hear God speak.
