A German philosopher Wittgenstein described language as providing  the link between action and meaning  Although the Church has its own vocabulary and grammar here in these parishes we make a special attempt to demytholygise that grammar: to translate meaningless words and phrases into practical examples of the difference that faith can make to your life. As a Church of England Church there is no getting away from the fact that some of the terms we have to use are difficult. But being part of the Church helps you unlock the hidden meaning in life. Why do we do what we do? What does it mean? How can faith make a difference to how we act and how we think? These are the questions that we consider in Church on Sundays and Thursdays.

Our goal is to transform lives, as you find meaning in the ups and downs of everyday life, so that you can choose to live by Christian values and that society can benefit from the choices you make.

Life is a leap of faith.

The Meaning of Life - ‘42’ ?

The Church has a tradition of belief and worship, made in response to what we believe God has done for us. We welcome everyone, regardless of anything which they consider makes them different. We show no prejudice, and everyone is welcome in Church. We invite you to join us as we search together for that meaning and purpose in our lives and seek to follow Jesus the founder of our faith, and the one in whose name we meet and worship and celebrate the great festivals of the Church year such as Advent, Christmas, Epiphany and Easter. Christians find meaning and strength in the symbol of the cross. Why not go to Church and spend some time meditating upon it?

May God bless you as you look, today and everyday. Your friend and vicar,   Adrian

When the sun is shining and everything is going right we should praise God.

When it’s raining outside, and all is gloom and doom then we should pray.

The Psalms of David give lots of ideas of how to pray. David was a very emotional king and expressed his emotions and his faith and his doubts in  poems or songs which are called Psalms. You will be familiar with the 23rd Psalm from funeral services. How many other psalms do you know?
