Happy New Year

The New Year letter this year is being posted on the website a bit later than usual. This letter is also being posted physically to the entire congregation, and hence we did not feel it was right to post the letter on the website until it had arrived via Royal Mail to people’s homes. Undertaking a mailshot of the congregation is an extremely onerous task, hence the reason we haven’t undertaken too many mailshots during the past year. Our grateful thanks are due to Karen, Agnes, Christine and others who printed, collated, labelled, enveloped and arranged postage for all these letters. Continue reading

Happy New Year !

My New Year letter to the Congregation is a bit different this year for obvious reasons, in that I am currently on sick leave following my operation in November.  As I informed people via  video message at the Christmas eve service, I am getting better each day and making good progress. It has been a long  and at times difficult journey . A journey is easier though when others walk with us, and so I should like to thank all of you for your ceaseless prayers for me and my family, and for every practical and prayerful support and encouragement we have received during these past two months Continue reading
