Let your light shine!

At this morning’s service, Mike Robertson preached on Matthew 17:1-13, which records the ‘Transfiguration’ of Jesus. Jesus took three of his closest friends, Peter, James and John up a mountain and at the top, he was transformed – a bright light shining from within, radiating through his body. The four of them were joined by Moses and Elijah, two of the greatest God-followers from the first part of the Bible.  The event confirmed before

The photograph taken after the team had finished showed how impressive their work had been. The building was sparklingly bright, the chairs in neat rows. But looking at the picture, you realised that something was missing. In a word, people – us! For the Bible’s

Thanks to everyone who helped clean the church building this morning
Food

Duncan writes: We had a really super 2 hours this morning giving all the church buildings a major clean. Floors were swept and washed, windows were cleaned, carpets were hoovered. We had a team of at least 20 people which made light work of all the work.
