Hello and welcome to our church website,

Now that Christmas is past we have all put our decorations away in the loft again until next year. Christmas was very different this year, especially within the Church. In more normal times there are services going on all through Advent, but this year there was no Nativity, No Candlight, Carol Service and no Watchnight Service either.  We did manage to have a very enjoyable Christmas Morning Service though, with the nativity told in biscuit form!

Although we have put away our Christmas decorations, for the Church, its year is simply beginning, as Lockdown has once again been placed upon us we are returning to our online services on a Sunday, and I look forward to sharing the message of Christ with you all.

We were just beginning to settle into a nice routine again of returning to church and enjoying worship in person, however we must stay safe and well.

Snowdrops

Spring is around the corner and already the snowdrops are pointing their heads above the cold earth, a sure sign of better things to come.

We may not be back in our church at the moment, but God is always with us wherever we are.  It may seem lonely when isolating, but please remember Our Lord is wherever we are and is always there for us.

We should be like the Snowdrop and peak a little at the world around us and when the time is right, then we can return to our beloved building.

In the meantime, please remember you are always held in prayer and thought of often, and I, your minister, can be reached by phone whenever you feel you need someone.

One Church, One faith, One Lord, all bound together  by God’s Love.

Soon we will be able to worship in church again, until then, please stay safe and well.

Fiona Wilson, Minister

Rev Fiona Wilson and Richard Wilson
