    Daily Scripture

    “….so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”  (Ephesians 3:17-19)

    Daily Reflection

    Have you ever stopped to try to imagine the Love of God? It’s a tremendous thought that the Love of God is greater than we can ever comprehend. It’s not a love based on our performance. God’s love can’t be bought with riches or treasures. God’s love is not something that is fickle. He will not stop loving you at a moments notice for no reason whatsoever.  God doesn’t punish us by withholding his love. God does not love in the way we love.
    My prayer for us all today is that we will be rooted and established in the Love of God. That we may gain a deeper, more rooted understanding of that love every day and that we will be filled to overflowing with that love.

  • “Services” and Prayer:

    Though the building is closed, it is important that you know that prayer is still happening every day between Revd Rosemary and Revd David

    • 8am Morning Prayer
    • 6pm Evening Prayer.

    Please join us "in spirit" to pray for our community, our nation, and the world.

    If there is something particular you would like prayer for, please send me an email or give me a call.


    “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:30-31)
    Now really is the time to care for your neighbour. Please, pick up the phone, speak to them. We are a strong community, a caring community. Together we will get through this.

    Finally, I encourage you to use these prayers when you get up and when you go to bed:

    A prayer in the morning:

    Lord Jesus Christ, you said to your disciples, ‘I am with you always’.
    Be with me today, as I offer myself to you.
    Hear my prayers for others and for myself, and keep me in your care. Amen.

    A prayer in the evening:

    God our Father, by whose mercy the world turns safely into darkness and returns again to light:
    we place in your hands our unfinished tasks, our unsolved problems, and our unfulfilled hopes,
    knowing that only what you bless will prosper.
    To your love and protection we commit each other and all those we love, knowing that you alone are our sure defender, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Keep safe. Keep well. Keep praying. And God bless you.

    With love, David
