Sorry and Learn and Remember

OK, so first off, I'm very sorry this has been so long! The Church Office has been buried under one landslide of paper after another. The website is now updated again, just about, with more photos in the Media Gallery, all the services to Christmas now in (yes, I know! Remarkable...), and hopefully more updates on events and activities coming very soon!

In the meantime, I am starting a new era: for quite a while now, every month we've had a memory verse based off the children's teaching which, as a Church, we try to speak over each other, and have a whack at learning. Suffice to say, we're very good at the proclaiming bit, not so good at the learning bit.

Therefore, how would you like your very own phone wallpaper, inscribed with the very verse that you're trying to learn? You WOULD? Well then...

'Come back to the Lord your God. 
He is kind and full of mercy; 
he is patient and keeps his promise; 
he is always ready to forgive and not punish.’ 
Joel 2:13
