A Word from Geoff – March 2020

Dear Friends I think it’s true to say that people don’t particularly look forward to Lent. Childhood memories of giving up chocolate or sweets, or as adults giving up wine are the ideas that dominate the season of Lent today. Words like “sacrifice,” “discipline,” and “self-denial” are often used in ways that suggest that Lent […]

A Word From Geoff – February 2020

Dear FriendsWe live in an age where every thought and opinion of celebrities is highlighted, unpacked, discussed and analysed. As we read and listen to their opinions and advice, or completely ignore and never ever listen to them we face a bit of a dilemma. Where do we go to for wisdom and instruction? Interestingly […]

The Forge – Christmas Party

Although it may be January and Christmas seems like an age ago, the Forge (our men’s ministry group) had to wait until now to have our Christmas meal as Mark our resident chief was busy.

A Word From Geoff – December 2019

A promise made is a promise Kept? I began writing this Christmas thought by putting into Google ‘Keeping promises’, this is what came up Keeping Your Promise is Good for YOU. … When we don’t keep a promise to someone, it communicates to that person that we don’t value him or her. We have chosen to put something else ahead of our […]

A Word from Geoff – November 2019

Dear Friends In my sermon at the end of October I said that those people who say the Bible is boring have quite clearly never read it, because if you actually read it, and entered into its stories, the accounts, and the depth and background and context, the one thing you will not be is bored! […]
