Steve’s Newsletter – July & August 2022

We’re coming into the holiday season now and already there has been dismay and disappointment for many! As a result of airlines being under staffed or over-selling seats on their planes, people have either had holidays cancelled, or delayed, or even been stuck at their holiday destination. (Which I don’t think is as good as […]

Steve’s Newsletter – June 2022

As I’m sure all of you are aware, this year we will be celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee; 70 years on the throne. We will be celebrating with street parties, special concerts, community events and even an extra bank holiday! Although I wouldn’t say I’m a devout royalist, I do have an admiration and respect […]

Steve’s Newsletter – May 2022

I meet people every week who don’t feel that they have anything to offer to the church in way of gifts and talents; disheartened people who have very little hope and positivity about their role within God’s church. I think it’s probably human nature to look at others and wish we had their gifts or […]

Steve’s newsletter – April 2022

Easter, that wonderful time of the year when we can remember the sacrifice of Jesus for each of us, and celebrate our risen Saviour all in the same weekend! I remember a few years back in one of my previous churches, having an Easter egg hunt in the service for the children. Before the service, […]

Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday. Lent comes from the Anglo-Saxon word ‘lencten’, which means “spring.” The forty days represents the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, enduring the temptation of Satan and preparing to begin His ministry. Traditionally, Lent has […]

Steve’s Newsletter – February 2022

February is a strange month. We’re still in the grips of winter, but yet we start to see glimmers of the hope of spring with the days starting the lengthen. Some say that February is a month of reflection; where the blues of January subside and we start to look forward to sunny days and […]

Steve’s Newsletter – January 2022

The above poster was advertising Jaws 2 back in 1978, and contains that famous tagline; ‘Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water…’ With the roll-out of covid-19 vaccines and booster jabs, I think most of us were hoping that we had seen the worst of the Covid-19 pandemic. But […]

Steve’s Newsletter – December 2021

As we come together at this time of year, a time for family and friends, it’s good for us to also spend some time reflecting on the “real reason for the season” – Jesus. It’s important that we welcome Him into our homes and into our celebrations, remembering that, as Christians, we celebrate Christmas not […]

Steve’s Newsletter – November 2021

Having moved house twelve times in my adult life, I am still amazed by the amount of ‘clutter’ we accumulate in a very short space of time. Much of the ‘stuff’ we moved to our new home seemed to go straight back into the loft, but all seems to be things we once loved, or […]

Steve’s Newsletter – October 2021

Autumn is now upon us, and we thank God for giving us a ‘freer’ summer this year; enabling us to enjoy the warmth of the sun and the beautiful blue skies. And at this time of year, we rejoice at all the wonderful gifts from God through our Harvest Festivals; decorating our churches with the […]
