It’s amazing just how quickly the site can feel dated. Apologies for the lack of updates here.
Well, as 2016 is now upon us, we have great news.
For the first time in more than 40 years (yes…forty)… we are looking forward to a baptism taking place here at the church. On Easter Day (March 27th 2016) we will be filling the baptistry and entering the water. This is a huge event for us, and we are very excited for the individual and the church…
The buildings team are working hard to overhaul the baptistry as it has fallen into disrepair, but they remain confident that come the day, all will be well. If you have never seen the baptistry, it is basically a large deep bath, built into the floor of the church that is usually covered over and opened up when needed. As it has been some time, the spiders have been rehoused, and the surfaces are being made watertight… no leaks here!
Here is an example of a baptistry… Ours doesn’t look like this…yet !
If you would like to come and see this occur,you’d be VERY welcome. It is a public event with much joy as the candidate publically states their love for Jesus.
It is often an emotional time. As Minister I have had the privilege of baptising many over the years and they remain special moments of life for those taking part and those joining in with the celebrations.
So, come along… please. .. It promises to be a very special time indeed.

We now have a new Sermons page, where you can listen to the talks given each week (where the recordings have been taken)… Why not click the page above and have a listen…
So, what were we up to through Christmas…
We had a toy collection for Coventry City Mission’s toy appeal… (thanks to all those who gave so generously to help local children and families!)
We enjoyed a church Christmas buffet together… (Yum !)
We welcomed the community together for Brass Band Carols with Mulled wine and warm mince pies…
We had our Carols service on Sunday 21st December where together we sang traditional Carols and heard readings from the Bible telling us of Jesus birth…
We met together on Christmas morning to celebrate. This was a lovely service where we sang and prayed together, and also were able to thank all those through the year who had helped the church, especially Sheila, Les and Ron who served as Deacons… They do SO much, often behind the scenes, to help the church, and this is greatly appreciated… (As a church, we gave them chocolates as a small gesture of our thanks).
