Steve’s Newsletter – November 2019

I’m really not a big fan of this time of year. The days are getting shorter, the weather colder, trees are losing their leaves and the outlook is pretty bleak as we tumble on towards the shortest day of the year. I think sometimes life can leave us with very similar feelings; darkness can seem […]

Steve’s Newsletter – October 2019

When I started thinking about using ‘footprints’ as a theme for this letter, I had feet in mind, but by far the biggest hit on the internet about footprints was about our carbon footprint, the damage that we do to our world through pollution etc. Then that got me thinking about what we do with […]

Steve’s Newsletter – September 2019

We are living in a massive time of change! Not only are we coming to the end of the summer with the trees starting to shed their summer coats, but our whole country, and world, is going through massive changes too. Environmentally, we are seeing changes in our weather; from summers of extreme heat, to […]

Steve’s Newsletter – June 2019

I attended a Memory Worship (dementia friendly service) at one of my churches this month, where some very young children from the pre-school nursery, joined us to sing their rainbow song. Seeing these children sat there waiting for their performance, reminded me of what the Bible says about children and faith. Children accept things as […]

Steve’s newsletter – May 2019

I think its probably human nature to look at others and wish we had their gifts or […]

Easter, that wonderful time of the year when we can remember the sacrifice of Jesus for each of us, and celebrate our risen Saviour all in the same weekend! I remember a few years back in one of my previous churches, having an Easter egg hunt in the service for the children. Before the service, […]

Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday. Lent comes from the Anglo-Saxon word ‘lencten’, which means “spring.” The forty days represents the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, enduring the temptation of Satan and preparing to begin His ministry. Traditionally, Lent has been all about […]

Steve’s Newsletter – February 2019

I’ve always been one for a good voucher. After all, why pay more for something when you can get it cheaper! Over the years I’ve used many different vouchers to save money on different things, from Groupon Vouchers to Tesco Club Card vouchers. But all these vouchers have something in common; they all have terms and conditions! And […]

2 Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. 23 They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. [Lamentations 3:22-23 NIV] I think we’re all buds when we start our relationship with God and quite often, we’re closed to the possibilities that God offers to us through […]
