A Message from the Wardens – 17th September 2020

Dear FriendsWe were greatly encouraged to see many of you return to worship last Sunday. 24 adults and 4 children were in church. It was all very new and it is fair to say there was a certain amount of anxiety about how the new procedures would work but, although it felt different and strange […]

A Message from the Wardens – 10th September 2020

Dear Friends We had an anxious wait when the government introduced new legislation on social gatherings this week .

In the […]

A Message from the Wardens – 23rd July 2020

Dear Friends, Every morning, apart from Sunday, our alarm wakes us up with the sound of the Today program. Depending on the headlines, we are either lulled back into slumber or grumpily awakened. Sunday however is generally a much calmer mood, focussing on matters ethical and religious and followed by Sunday Worship. We heard this […]

A Message from the Wardens – 16th July 2020

Dear Friends, Like me, I’m sure most of us are familiar with the first couplet of this poem, but I’d never read the rest of it: WHAT is this life if, full of care, We have no time to stand and stare? — No time to stand beneath the boughs, And stare as long as […]

It’s a phrase I often […]
