In accordance with Government recommendations, our Sunday services are now suspended until further notice.

As always, the Psalms offer timeless wisdom in troubled times.
God Is Our Fortress
God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy habitation of the Most High.
God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved;
God will help her when morning dawns.
Let’s be praying together for this to be our reality and confidence as we face these upcoming months
Resources for navigating Covid page
Covid has brought with it many challenges for all of us in different ways. But as well as having to cope with the practical fallout and the social isolation, for some of us there may be deeper questions that Covid has raised.
If God is good and if he is in total control, then why has he allowed Covid? And now that it’s here, then if he cares for us, why doesn’t he stop it? Or did God send Covid, and if so, why? What is his agenda?
And whatever the answers to those questions are . . . what is he doing in these unprecedented days? – if indeed they really ARE unprecedented!
You can find many different ideas online and elsewhere, ranging from the wise and helpful to the weird and wacky! We have put together below some links to a few resources that we think are balanced and godly, and that we hope you might find helpful if you are troubled, or simply interested, by questions such as these.
May God reveal his heart more as you seek him further – God bless you.
