Living the life...telling the story....visit us at

Dear friends,

Tomorrow is known as Passion Sunday, when we consider the cross of Jesus – why did He die, what did He achieve as he was crucified for us, pointing of course to Easter Day, the greatest Christian celebration of His rising from the dead, breaking the power and fear of death for all who put their trust in Him.

We have both live and online services tomorrow – details are:

The Lent course continues on Wednesday evenings 7.15 for 7.30 helping us grasp the wide narrative of scripture, how it fits together and how it impacts our lives – there’s still time to join in.
