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 […]

Steve’s Newsletter – February 2021

Unfortunately, Pastor Steve and his family are all poorly at present suffering from Covid. We send our love and prayers to them all for a speedy recovery and pray that they will feel the power of the holy spirit’s healing. Please accept my offering instead of the Minister’s Letter.

Steve’s Newsletter – January 2021

With another year past and a new one stretching out before us, it seems a natural time to take stock of our lives. What went well over the last year? What was disappointing? Where would we like to be in another year’s time? What would we especially like to do and achieve in the coming […]

Steve’s Newsletter – December 2020

Once again at this time of year we turn our thoughts to the birth of Jesus; but all too often the wonder of this awesome event is obscured by the trappings of Christmas – holidays, presents, food, television, etc. and this year by the fear and anxiety of a global pandemic. But it is worth […]

Steve’s Newsletter – September 2020

Looking out of my patio window as I write this letter, I’m surprised by the amount of brown leaves appearing on the oak tree at the bottom of my garden. On closer inspection, I actually realise that many leaves have already fallen, and my lawn is covered in acorns. It only seems like a couple […]

Steve’s Newsletter – August 2020

I’m sure that we have all become very familiar with the slogan above! But that is still the overriding responsibility for those leading churches, as well as those who don’t. Many have been asking when we are going to open for Sunday worship again, as some churches, but not all, have already returned to a […]

Steve’s Newsletter – July 2020

I wonder what goes through your mind when you think of the word confession? For many, when they hear ‘confessing your sin’, they think it’s reserved for monks in a monastery or of paying penance to God by entering a church confessional. But the Bible teaches us it is an important practice for the life […]

Steve’s Newsletter – June 2020

‘A man in his middle years was on a Caribbean cruise. On the first day out, he noticed an attractive woman about his own age who smiled at him in a friendly way as he passed her on the deck, which pleased him. That night he managed to get seated at the same table with […]
