New Sermon Series : Following on from our Summer series on "Meet Jesus", we will "Meet the Father" and then "Meet the Spirit", as we continue to meet with the Trinity. The aim of the series is to help us meet with God as Jesus did and draw us into the relational experience Jesus had with His Father and the Holy Spirit. The readings will therefore reflect Jesus being affirmed by the Father and also the Father speaking of the Son in the Old Testament and then Jesus meeting with the Spirit and the Spirit sent by Him to His Church.

We still need to be cautious as the number of Covid infections is increasing a little. If we're inside, we ask people to continue to wear a mask, please.
People who have any symptoms of Covid-19 should not attend Church.

Message from Dave & Carol : We were overwhelmed by your gifts, cards and kind words. Thank you for everything! We have been sorting out the new house in Swanage, and we are now doing the final packing at Stratford. It is hard work - please pray for us. Our final move will be on 06 October, but we will be back for the New Year's Eve service, so will see you all then. Do keep in touch.
With love in Christ,
