Tree of Life

Thank you Fun@4
At our Messy Church session on Sunday 3rd April, the congregation created some beautiful bead crosses, flowers, butterflies and snakes which they then used to decorate a dead branch and bring it to life showing how God can bring life from the dead.

We heard the good news of Jesus coming to life again after willingly giving his life for us.

The Tree of Life is now on display in the Church .

Church Closure

Dear friends we are sorry to inform you that from today Saturday 9th January 2021 we will not be holding ‘in person services’ in our churches of St. Peter’s, Christ Church and St. Leonard’s.It was the intention to try and keep our church buildings open at the beginning of the week. However after careful consideration and in the light of the rising infection rates we believe it would be best for all those we care for, that we suspended face to face activities. We are aware that Government guidance and our own National and Regional Guidance does permit such activities, provided they are Covid secure, but we like many churches locally feel it would be too great a risk to place our congregations at risk.We know that we have successfully managed the risk and many do feel safe and secure in church when we are open, however the new strain posses grater risks.We will be shut throughout this phase of lockdown and await the review that is expected on February 15th. We are aware that this is a big disappointment to many and it is with heavy heart that this decision has been taken .A reminder that we do still meet for church in our homes on Zoom. Once more we ask that each of you to be extra vigilant and safe.Blessings Darren Walker’
