As we look forward to the national easing of restrictions of the next 6 months, we also look forward to being able to meet together as God’s family when possible. The PCCs will be meeting on the 11th of March to discuss reopening the churches for worship on Sundays and Fridays.
In the meantime please join us for our online Benefice Service at 9.30 am on Sunday using the code below.
Sunday Service 9.30 am – with Years 1&2 from Redeemer
It will be great to be joined by the children on Sunday as we continue our sermon series in Romans. We look forward to their video contributions!
We’d like families on Oakdale and Fernhurst to get involved in an Easter Hope Trail this Easter. If you’d be willing to get involved by decorating your house and putting a Bible verse up (see pics), or helping to organise this event then please get in touch.
We’ll need a minimum of 8 households willing to be involved, each will be given a different part of the Easter story to show.
Our hope is that families will be able to go round the trail over Easter weekend, see the Easter Story, and receive a goody bag at the end!

Hope in the Face of Suffering — his first devotional, based upon his ‘Lift Up Your Hearts’ GAFCON broadcasts — offers twenty inspirational messages for tough times.
Jeremy helps readers apply the principles he has learned through his own experience of dealing with terminal cancer. He holds out the message of hope in the Bible — the medicine cabinet where we can find treatment for our suffering — and meditates on God’s promises, which are like a rock upon which we can stand secure.
As with Jeremy’s previous book, this has been written in a way that is not only helpful for Christians but is also accessible for our non-Christian friends.
“All of us will face suffering at some point in our lives. In this brilliant and candid devotional guide, Jeremy draws on his experience of an incurable cancer diagnoses to journey through the Bible with us. He offers 20 daily readings. What an encouragement to face up to fear and encounter Christ through his word. I highly recommend this as a practical resource in times of difficulty whatever you may be going through.”

Who through the Spirit of holiness was declared with power to be the Son of God, by His resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord.
Jesus’ resurrection proves that He is Lord of all. Christians have thankfully bowed the knee to Him as our Lord. Paul reminds us, in the following verses of Romans, that it is a brilliant things to live with Jesus as Lord. Love; belonging; grace; and peace all flow from it. What will it look like to live with Jesus as Lord in every aspect of your life? And there areas of our lives where we’re trying to shut Him out?
