Learning from a biblical family that gets it badly wrong!

God has made us to live in relationship with Him, those around us, ourselves and all creation.  And our relationships are the most precious thing we have – but they are rarely easy.  For those of us from less than perfect families (that’s all of us) we can learn much from the biblical accounts of families who get it wrong as well as those who get it right! 

In our worship we bring ourselves and our relationships before God and have the opportunity to receive his healing, redeeming, transforming love.  Click here to join our Worship.

Moving (slowly) towards a new normal


As you know, St Helen’s church is open daily for Private Prayer from 10am to 5pm, and we are moving slowly and cautiously towards resuming worship in church.  As you’d expect, the safety of our congregations and ministers is a top priority for us.  We are committed to continuing with our Online Sunday Services.

Thank you for those of you who have shared your views about when and how we should resume services in church.  We’re still keen to hear your thoughts on how we should proceed – click here to email me.

It may take a little longer than we’d like, but to borrow from the Queen’s address during Lockdown, “We will meet again.” And thankfully that day is getting closer.

God bless you and your loved ones this week and we look forward to seeing you soon.
With love and prayers – Richard
