Message from our Minister
To say that this has been a challenging year is a huge understatement. The Covid-19 pandemic has rocked the very fabric of society and brought devastation to communities around the world. We continue to have to adjust what we can do, where we can go and who we can meet, according to the latest government guidelines. However, there is real hope that things will begin to improve now that a vaccine is available. In this changing and uncertain time it is good to be reminded again of the essential Christmas message of hope and peace, offered to us through Jesus; the baby in the manger and Saviour of the world. He comes to be among us and to be with us. This message is powerfully portrayed in the hymn by Charles Wesley, ’Let earth and heaven combine’, which states, ’Our God contracted to a span, incomprehensibly made man’.
Marian and I wish you all peace and joy this Christmas and also for the New Year! Rev John Izzard
It is with regret that we have to tell you that communal worship in church will be temporarily suspended from 3/01/2021.Although tier four restrictions do allow meetings, it was felt that due to the rise in case numbers coupled with the new variant, it was the safest option. We will review the situation as things change.
Services at the Orchard House care home cannot take place at present.
We will keep you informed on the website when other church activities are able to resume.
House Groups now meet regularly on Zoom.
