I hope you’ve had a good Easter week. Thanks to all who were involved with the Easter Window Trail…it was a great way to tell the Easter Story as people got out and about. It was also a great joy to sing outside on Good Friday and Easter Sunday. Maybe when the weather warms up we can do that again!

This email will be for the next 2 weeks as I’m off on holiday on Saturday.

This Sunday’s Children’s Activity is attached and fits with the theme of our morning service. Zoom Sunday School is after the 9.30am service.

As always, it would be helpful if you could let me know you’re planning on coming to the building. If you email and don’t get a reply, please still come along!


Friday Live!

We’re aiming to restart Friday Live! on the 23rd April at 6.30pm.

Friday Live! is a short All-Age service including an activity. It’s currently being run in Church of the Saviour Church Hall. If you’d like to come along please get in touch.



Church Electoral Role

This is a bit like saying you’re a ‘member’ of the church. Being on it allows you to vote in the Church’s Annual Meeting on the 23rd May. However, it has no impact on school attendance requirements. If you’re already on the roll, you don’t have to apply again this year.

The Church Electoral Roll will be revised by the PCC, beginning on Sunday 11th April and ending on Sunday 2nd May 2021.

After the revision, a copy of the Roll will be published in the foyer for at least 14 days and a copy of the Roll will be available for inspection on a reasonable request being made to the PCC.

Under the Church Representation Rules any lay person is entitled to have their name entered on the roll if they are –

(a) baptised,

(b) aged 16 or over, and

(c) have made one of three declarations and duly applied for enrolment.

Please contact Chris or Sheila Fielding if you would like an enrolment form.

Leprosy Mission

At our Sunday evening service, 7pm on the 18th April, Ian Johnson from the Leprosy Mission will be speaking and sharing with us some of the work they are doing. Please join us for this service using the usual zoom code.


But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 5:8

God doesn’t love us because we’re good and Jesus didn’t die for us because we are lovely. The good news is that God loves us despite our sin; Jesus died for the ungodly! Imagine someone knowing you at your very worst and still loving you and being willing to sacrifice their life for you. That’s exactly what Jesus did. When we look at the cross, we see just how much God loves us.

“Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me.”

In Christ,
