Hard  Times  Ahead

Mother Nature teaches us that all things come to an end, sooner or later. All plants and creatures bloom for a time but then wilt and wither, die and decay.

This pattern crosses over into human enterprises and into the living of each human life. It tells us: ‘nothing you own, do or achieve is permanent.’


The first frost usually hits in November, a pointer to winter’s severe weather. Jesus points to the fall of the fabulous Temple and the people’s shock at this. He declares that his disciples can expect hard times ahead, times that will test the mettle of their Faith.

 Safety  and  Respect

A renewed request to parents, guardians and grandparents to advise their young people not to cycle in the cemetery, or church grounds or car park

Cycling in these areas creates hazards for people who wish to walk to or from the church or who wish to visit and pray at their family graves. Also it offends people who have loved ones laid to rest in our cemetery.  So, please have a word at home.


Week  of  Witness 2019

The colour Red gives many messages – love, anger, warmth, danger.  Among Christians, since earliest times, it has been associated with Martyrs : those shed their red blood in staying faithful to Christ.


In the world today, tens of thousands are made to suffer for their Faith in Christ. We are asked to show support for them next week, 25 Nov – 1st Dec.

Especially on Wednesday 27th : Wear something
