Steve’s Newsletter – October 2022

When I started thinking about using ‘footprints’ as a theme for this letter, I had feet in mind, but by far the biggest hit on the internet about footprints was about our carbon footprint, the damage that we do to our world through pollution etc. Then that got me thinking about what we do with […]

Steve’s Newsletter – September 2022

We are living in a massive time of change! Not only are we coming to the end of the summer with the trees starting to shed their summer coats, but our whole country, and world, is going through massive changes too. Environmentally, we are seeing changes in our weather; from summers of extreme heat, to […]

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, […]

Steve’s Newsletter – March 2022

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 […]
