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 […]

I’m sure for many of us, at this time of year, our minds drift off to thoughts of sun-soaked holidays. Whether that holiday be overseas or within the UK, one of our dilemmas is what to pack and what not to pack. I know from previous experience that half the clothes I pack for a […]

My wife has just bought a hanging tomato plant which already has tomatoes on it as it was cultivated in a green house. This got me thinking about the fruit we produce as Christians and what it takes for us to yield good fruit. Here I don’t mean fruit like bananas or apples, but spirit […]

Steve’s Newsletter – May 2021

Last summer one of my daughters bought me a banana plant. I had never kept a banana plant before and I was impressed by the speed of growth; every few days a new leaf would appear! But unfortunately, due to my lack of banana plant care, I left it outside for the winter and it […]

Steve’s Newsletter – April 2021

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! Unlike last year, and for those who feel they can, we are able to attend a live service in our churches on Easter Sunday morning and […]

Steve’s Newsletter – March 2021

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 […]
