Engaging with Millennials

by Graham Criddle

At the church AGM on Thursday we discussed some of the reasons for those in their 20s-30s not, in general, engaging with God, faith or church.

Susan Myatt’s Ordination

by Graham Criddle

Last Saturday (10th September 2016) we had the privilege of sharing in Susan Myatt’s ordination to Baptist ministry.

A few years ago in Spain a man named Antonio cried out to God, “If you’re real, speak to me!” He was in an elevator on his way to a hotel room. Highly educated, at 27 years old, he had taught chemistry and maths at a Catholic school in Spain. He knew of God, but […]

In an amazing story of redemption and hope, an Islamic State militant who sought to kill Christian missionaries providing aid to those displaced by the terrorist group in Jordan ended up surrendering his life after learning that relatives of his were receiving aid from Christians, who he viewed as unclean “pigs” The Muslim, whose name […]

Ladies’ Breakfast

by Web Manager

On Saturday a dozen or so of us met to share breakfast together. Although this was slightly forced upon us by the men’s breakfast being on the same date as our normal breakfast, we tackled it with good heart. As well as good food, we had time to catch up with friends and make new ones. […]

What does Easter mean to you?

by Graham Criddle

At Easter we remember and celebrate that moment in history when Jesus, the Son of God, died and was powerfully and gloriously brought back to life. We recognise that he died to restore creation, to deal with the problem of sin, to make it possible for us to have a renewed relationship with God. But […]
