Come and join us for Mossy Church on July 3rd, 3.30pm at St Peter’s Church. We meet outside around the fire to think about the theme of trees. All welcome for a short informal service, worshipping through connecting with nature and practical activities.

Part of the recently launched Vision for our church includes a Priority of “Helping people encounter God’s Love”.  One way we are seeking to do this is to deepen our own spirituality. Our Daily Bread is a way of regularly sharing bite-sized pieces of information about different ways of praying and engaging with God through other spiritual practices. Last Sunday, Linda Thomas, talked about Pray as You Go. To watch, please click here, or on the image below.

Pray As You Go is produced by the Jesuits in the UK and is available as a website, or as an App for Smartphones and Tablets, (click on the links below). Each day there is a meditation on scripture with reflective questions to deepen your walk with God.
