The Enlightened one

Although her faith was by no stretch of the imagination complete, just moments after meeting Jesus, she went out and drew people in. “Come and see” she says.

And they do.

Coronavirus COVID-19

Updated 27th March

The Archbishops and Bishops of the Church of England have urged everyone to follow the instructions given by the Prime Minister. They are to stay in their homes in a national effort to limit the transmission of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Our church buildings are now closed for public worship, private prayer and all other meetings and activities except for vital community services until further notice.

The Archbishops called on the Church to “continue to pray, to love, to care for the vulnerable”

You get a new and wider perspective.
