Welcome!

Welcome to our weekly info page – aiming to keep you in touch and inspired during this challenging period of lockdown!  It’s been uplifting to see that Spring has still ‘sprung’…..but in this coming week we will be reminding ourselves that ‘Easter is still Easter’……that the truth of Jesus’ resurrection still stands and holds the key to real life for us all! Please find details here of many ways in which we can still connect as a church family, but importantly be inspired to share the good news of Jesus with others in our circle.  If you have any questions or queries, please do get in touch – online, by email or phone – we’ll be really pleased to connect with you!

Take a look at some new resources we’ve added in this week on our website:

• ‘How to Read the Bible’: an ongoing resource (to replace the weekly pack) – in both kids and adult versions – to help us engage with Scripture for ourselves, whether young or less young!  (available from Sunday 5 April).
We’re keen for all of us to Make Easter count and reach people with the best news in history!
•’Be the Light Pack’: resources to help you reach people with the good news! (available also from Sunday)
• other Easter material to share on social media or by messaging…..keep a lookout for this!

Key workers nationally, in our community and known to us: for protection, strength, wisdom……
