Thought for the Month from Rev'd Jonathan Plows,
Prayer for June
Life may seem to be a constant feeling of never ending tasks, of demands being placed upon us and of weariness at the end of a day. Perhaps a change of gear several times a day may help. A 180 seconds of rest and silence; a moment to take stock, to take a breath, to re-orientate ourselves, to let our heart be still. In those moments let us wait for the Lord, let us trust in Him and let us be refreshed in His steadfast love.
O Lord our soul waits for You;
for you are our help and shield. Our heart is glad in You,
because we trust in Your holy name. May your steadfast love, O Lord, be constantly upon us,
even as we hope in you.
Our Parish Centre is at St Thomas's House next to the church. We have a lovely room, well equipped kitchen and garden which are available for hire for business meetings, training, lectures, receptions & private gatherings.
