    Thought for the Month

    Prayer for May

    May is a month in which the joy of Easter takes on a new perspective. The events of Jesus’s ascension and the coming of the Spirit at Pentecost ask us how we might live out God’s Kingdom in the world around us. With the election approaching on the 7th May, this is a poignant question to reflect on. The wonder of Easter brings responsibility—let us pray for grace to embrace it well.
    The Rev’d Charlie Allen


    Eternal God, giver of love and power,
    Your Son Jesus Christ as sent us into this world to preach the gospel of his Kingdom:
    Confirm us in this mission, And help us to live the good news we proclaim;
    Through Christ our Lord.
    Amen

    Welcome to Sue Hart

    Latest comment on Trip Advisor

    "Don't miss this little gem of a church - still retains all the love that was endowed on it by its builders. Very peaceful inside, although life throbs outside. Close your eyes and soak up the atmosphere."
