We sometimes find ourselves like the disciples—knowing, but not understanding the One we worship. We have come together today, perhaps tossed about by the storms of life, wondering what will happen to us. But we are here. And because we are here, the Lord is also here. Let us come in faith that the one who stilled the storm so many years ago will also still the storms in our lives.
A WARM WELCOME TO CHURCH TODAY. If you’re a visitor please sign our visitor’s book in the vestibule. Our church has something for all ages & activities go on throughout the week. Please join us in the Hall after this service where tea/coffee is served. Large print bulletins are available from the duty team.
PASTORAL COVER – during Mr Reid’s absence I shall be grateful if members of the congregation and elders could advise me as quickly as possible, by telephone or email, of any illness or pastoral visits requiring to be made and also of people who may be in hospital.
