All Updates on
As of the 24th of March 2020 the church will now be closed to the public. All weddings and baptisms will be postponed until further notice. Funerals will not take place in the church either, but will still go ahead at the graveside.
"Funerals at the graveside or in crematoriums can still take place, but only in line with the Prime minister’s Statement. So not in church." +Dagmar

It is becoming clearer each passing day that we are fast running out of superlatives to describe the times that we find ourselves in with covid 19. In these times, our vulnerability as a human race has been exposed, we have all had to reconsider how we live in order to keep safe.
We are seeing fear, anxiety, panic become an understandable stronghold on people. However as Christians whilst we are confronted with the unknown, we should be comforted that we serve a known Yahweh, our God who holds infinite wisdom, knowledge, power and understanding.
We serve a God who gives peace in ways our human mind cannot fathom, Philippians 4:7 (NIV) And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
In these trying times, Christ Jesus in us will continue to strengthen us to keep on loving our neighbours as ourselves, helping those who are poor, hungry, vulnerable and afraid in our respective communities. We have a great opportunity to give the good news of the gospel to people in our orbit with the reminder of this scripture
1 Peter 3:15 (NIV)
"But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,"
