Kath's Letter - April 2016

Dear Friends,

I hope you all enjoyed the blessings of Easter- I did! Easter is my favourite season of the church and the year. This year Spring was in full splendour with daffodils and primroses gracing our gardens and the hedgerows. The lambs basking and prancing in the sunshine. God’s creation in all its glory.

St Peter’s Church on the other hand was looking very bare and empty for our Holy Week and Easter celebrations, but, I’m glad to say, it’s not all doom and gloom – far from it. From Easter Monday we closed St Peter’s to the public so that the Nave and Chancel can be redecorated – a huge task needing very high scaffolding. This work will take about a month so we will, hopefully, be back worshipping at St Peter’s again by the beginning of May. We are very grateful to the Tabernacle Trust for the use of the Tabernacle Auditorium for our Sunday services for the next few Sundays and our Wednesday services will be at the Parish Office. Details of service times are printed in the magazine.

The building work is slowing drawing to a conclusion and we can see things starting to come together. It has been a long haul and there is still a little way to go before we see the finished product but the signs of new life can be seen inside our beautiful church as well as in the fields and hedgerows of the countryside. We can look forward to new, exciting and innovative ways of telling the Good News of Jesus in new and exciting facilities. The doors to our new home will be open very soon and everyone is very welcome to come in. God is good – All the time.

With every blessing to you and yours
