Message of God's love

God Loves You

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. Indeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
John 3.16-17

John 3.16 is one of the best-known verses in the Bible and it emphasises God’s love is for everyone. It speaks about the action that God took to show His love towards us and that He loved us so much that He chose to send Jesus, so that we might be saved through him. Not because of anything that we did; not because we deserved it; but because He’s a loving God. God’s love is selfless, unconditional and for everyone.

If you would like to find out more about this amazing love that is for everyone, our church building is closed for service but the church is here for you and is very much alive. We will continue to do our best to shine the light of hope in these very difficult and uncertain times. Please see the page ' About Church during Coronavirus' for details of who to contact and our interactive on line services and coffee morning. We'd love to welcome you.

St Edmund's Church has reopened for Private Prayer and Reflection,  currently on Monday, Thursday and Saturday from 10am till 2pm. For more details see our News item on Reopening for Private Prayer.
