Rev Andy Hardwick
Welcome to our website.
The word pandemic was not part of my vocabulary, nor had I ever heard of Covid, until last year. For all of us our lives have changed and we are having to adapt to a new way of being human, of being community, of being church. It is disruptive and unnerving.
As a church we have been able to worship together on Zoom
every week, about 70 or 80 of us joining in live and many others catching up on
the recordings. The pastoral team is doing its best to keep in touch by phone,
email and letter. There have been a few recorded services on CD for those who
cannot connect with the Zoom or Facebook. We
have held church quizzes and praise evenings on Zoom and many people have been
helped with deliveries of essential supplies.
There is a very old hymn that stills me and reminds me of
the underpinning of the presence of God;
All my hope on God is founded;
He doth still my trust renew.
Me through change and chance he guideth,
Only good and only true.
God unknown, He alone
Calls my heart to be His own.
Rev Jane Gaffney and Deacon Georgina along with Connie Jeffery, Miriam Sitch and Ruth Henderson have put together 7 sessions on exploring different ways to pray, they will be running at 7pm on a Thursday evening, on zoom.
