God is always with us even when times seem desperate.  In our modern world, physical concerns can overwhelm us as 24 hour news and instant awareness of terrible events are pushed at us.  It is no surprise that such times have caused huge stresses, mental fatigue and even illness.

Whether you are a believer or not, God's church is there for you.  There are no headlines waiting there, no agenda of despair.  Instead, there is a place that has seen worship, prayer, births, deaths and marriages for over 900 years.  Above all, it has seen people meeting with God and one another.  When Jesus said, "Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light"...............he was speaking to you.  Come into All Saints, sit.....and rest.
