Steve’s Newsletter – November 2018

Minister’s Letter – November 2018 Having only just moved house yesterday and having moved house ten times in my adult life, I am still amazed by the amount of ‘clutter’ we accumulate in a very short space of time. Much of the ‘stuff’ we moved to our new home seemed to go straight back into the loft, […]

Minister’s Letter – October 2018 Autumn is now upon us and we thank God for giving us a good summer this year; for the warmth of the sun and the beautiful blue skies; and we celebrate all these wonderful gifts from God through our Harvest Festivals which we celebrate in our churches at this time […]

The psalmist’s words capture the depth of meaning of the 40 days leading up to Easter. Lent is that time of self-reflection and confession and acknowledging our need of […]

Covenant Sunday As is our tradition, early in the New Year we meet to renew our covenant with God. This is a distinctively Methodist practice which can be traced back to the first covenant service held by John Wesley in 1755. That first service took place in August, but it soon became the custom for […]

Autumn Leaves I think one of my favourite times of year is the autumn, when the leaves turn and start to fall. Autumn’s an oxymoron really, as it’s the ‘end’ of a ‘never-ending’ circle of life, as we await the spring and the new life it brings. For us too, life can sometimes seem to […]

Reformation 500 The 31st October 2017, will mark 500 years since Martin Luther nailed his “95 These,” to the door of All Saints Church in Wittenberg Germany, so triggering the process, that would lead to The Reformation. Not that he set out to do this in the beginning. He was a Catholic priest and Augustinian […]
