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

Psalm 27 The Lord is My Salvation

In such challenging days as these, we look for direction and help in God’s word. This morning we look at Psalm 27 where the Psalmist affirms his confidence and trust in God. This wonderful psalm is a song of great assurance and comfort. It is also a war song, a song of celebration and a song of final and certain victory.

For David the Psalmist, The Lord is His focus in all His trials. The Lord is the one in whom he trusts. The Lord is His Confidence and assurance.  Continue reading
