When we hear the word ‘church’ we often think of a building. But in the New Testament, ‘the church’ is not a building; it is those people who have put their trust in Jesus and are seeking to live as a outward-looking community of faith and love.
So, ‘the Church – a people who….’ is the title of a new sermon series that we began this month. We are considering together what is truly means to be a people travelling together, helping each other and growing together in a love that transforms us and others.
You can listen to the sermons on the sermons tab. Please let us know what you think.
Thanks for listening : )
We are shocked!
The summer has flown by and it’s been a couple of months since there has been any activity on the site, apart from the Facebook updates. We are sorry for the ‘silence’ but we hope you have enjoyed the peace and quiet.
In the days and weeks ahead there will be lots of notices on forthcoming events, our autumn Alpha Course, plus much more.
In the meantime, our verse of the week for this week, as we focus on being ‘The Church: A People who love…’ is this:
“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God.
Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.”
1 John 4:7-8

We want to apologise that none of April’s sermons have appeared on the site yet. Good news! We now know what the problem with the microphones was and why then the recordings weren’t so good. So we are re-recording some of the April sermons and we hope they will all be online in the next ten days. Thanks for your patience : )
It is soup lunch tomorrow : ) ! Soup is served at St Mary’s hall from 11.30am. There is no charge but donations to ‘the Friends of St Mary’s’ are very gratefully received : )
