    Thought for the Month
    Rev'd Canon David Linaker

    Prayer for December

    Jesus came as a human baby to show us what a life worth following looks like.
    Can we reach through our excitement or dread of the Christmas Season, to find in 
    ourselves a life worth following?

    Lord Jesus Christ,
    Come to my heart.
    Illumine my soul and banish all darkness.
    Set me free to live and love after your example,
    and so follow you to

    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."
