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
This is one of the best-known verses in the Bible because it emphasises God’s love for everyone. Jesus didn’t just love those who are easy to love, He loved the people who hated Him, who despised Him; He loved the people that others looked down on. He didn’t just love some people – He loved the whole world. This speaks about the action that God took to show His love towards us – it shows us how love is an active word. God loved us so much that He chose to send His beloved child for us. Not because of anything that we did, not because we deserved it; but because He’s a loving God. God’s love is selfless and sacrificial and shows us what we are worth to Him.

If you would like to find out more about this amazing love that is for everyone, the building is closed 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.
At this time we are able to offer a service at 9.00am of Holy Communion in one of the churches in our Mission Community and a service with songs/hymns via Zoom at 10.30am. Do get in touch with the Rector if you would like to find out more.
