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

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; taking, as He did, this sinful world
As it is, not as I would have it; trusting that He will make all things right
If I surrender to His Will; that I may be reasonably happy in this life
And supremely happy with Him forever in the next.
Amen.

Reinhold Niebuhr

(1892 – 1971)

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.
