The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ

And the love of God

And the fellowship of The Holy Spirit

Be with us all evermore


For today ....

A Word of Scripture

Over all these clothes, to keep them together and complete them, put on love. And may the peace of Christ reign in your hearts, because it is for this that you were called together as parts of one body. Always be thankful.

Colossians 3:14-15

A Thought for Today

Let us work for the food which does not perish – our salvation. Let us work in the vineyard of the Lord to earn our daily wage in the wisdom which says: those who work in me will not sin. Christ tells us: the field is the world. Let us work in it and dig up wisdom, its hidden treasure, a treasure we all want to obtain.

Proposed Trip to Georgia

As we were unable to achieve the minimum required number of travellers, this trip has been deferred to a possible later date in late 2019 or 2020. However, during 2019 (dates to be confirmed) we intend making Pilgrimage to The Holy Land & Jordan. The early notice may be of help to parishioners and friends who have already expressed interest in this pilgrimage.
