Thought For The Week 3 February 2019

What a wonderful time we had last Sunday evening celebrating the    opening of the refurbished foyer at St. Stephens, and the installation of the restored stained glass windows from St. Pauls. It is a credit to all involved that this project has worked out better than we could have imagined. This week we have the […]

Thought For The Week 16 December 2018

This week we count down the Advent Candle of “Joy”. Joy is a curious thing.  It is not the same as simple happiness. Happiness comes and goes with our circumstances. Joy is a deep well that sustains us in the hard times. Happiness comes and goes in a moment. Joy has a deep, slow rhythm that […]

Thought For The Week 9 December 2018

Welcome to our services today on this second Sunday in Advent, which focuses on the peace of God.  Advent is all about waiting; we are waiting for Christmas day and the joyous proclamation that Jesus is born and he is Emmanuel- God with us.  Jesus also spoke of his return at some undetermined time in […]

There are a couple of things that I have noticed […]

Thought For The Week 11 November 2018

Welcome to our services of worship this morning. Today is a special day commemorating the 100th Armistice Day which marks the day and hour when hostilities ceased on the Western Front in World War 1. This was to be ‘a war to end all wars’ but as history has shown it was merely the beginning […]

Thought For The Week 4 November 2018

At the moment I have the joyful privilege of helping two couples prepare for their wedding day. At the same time, we are moving into a month of services where reflect on our membership of The body of Christ together. What do these two things have in common? First, the “big day” when we declare […]

Thought For The Week 28 October 2018
