Historic Moments

One Sunday morning, and not so long ago, the Vicar found himself locked out of the Church one Sunday following the 10.15 am Holy Communion service. On the face of it this would seem unremarkable were it not for the fact that as he searched frantically for a spare key...

Prayer

O Lord, who hast mercy upon all,
take away from me my sins,
and mercifully kindle in me
the fire of thy Holy Spirit.
Take away from me the heart of stone,
and give me a heart of flesh,
a heart to love and adore Thee,
a heart to delight in Thee,
to follow and enjoy Thee, for Christ’s sake, Amen

St. Ambrose of Milan (AD 339-397)

An Introduction To

Mothers’ Union

Our Mothers’ Union exists to “work with people of all faiths and none to promote stable marriage, family life and the protection of children through praying, enabling and campaigning. ”

Our members work to bring hope and practical support to people every year through our parenting, literacy and community development programmes and as part of the volunteer base of local churches.

We are not stuffy!

The services mostly follow the pattern for Holy Communion and we are supported by an able & highly motivated laity. We have an excellent organist and a well established choral tradition.
