Summer in Song: Raise a Hallelujah

The song for this week will be a new one to most of you, I should think.  It was written at the beginning of 2019 by a couple called Jonathan and Melissa Helser from Bethel Music as a response to the illness of the son of…

Summer in Song: Amazing Grace

Carrying on with our ‘Summer in Song’! Our song this week is, quite possibly, the most well-known hymn of all.   A biographer of the author called Jonathan Aitken has estimated that it is sung 10 million times each year!  It is, of course, Amazing Grace.  Here are all…

Summer in Song….The heart of worship

Last year, as a congregation, we spent the summer looking at various Psalms. This summer, we’re going to do ‘Summer in Song’. Over the next few weeks, we’re going to look at some hymns and songs and the stories behind them. We’re then going to…

Less………..

Over the past few weeks, we have been looking at ‘More’.  Are you fed up with that word yet?  I’m not!  However, this week we’re going to look instead at the word ‘less’. The bible passage is from John 3 starting at verse 23:  23 Now John also was baptizing…

Dangerous Prayers

Week 2……. Last week we looked at the first of three dangerous prayers and we asked God to search us, using the verse from Psalm 139.  How did you get on?  Did you pray it or did you decide that you just weren’t ready to go that…

Dangerous Prayers

Week 1……… In just a couple of weeks, we will begin our journey to the cross as we enter the period of Lent. Before then, though, I want to ask whether you, newly committed to God, are willing to go deeper than you ever have…

Let It Go!

Something very exciting happened in our family last week.  Ruby lost her first tooth!  Here she is, with the gorgeous little gap that just makes her look so cute.   This has been much anticipated and longed for.  Her friends started losing theirs a while ago and she has…
