Writings from the ministry team for your refreshment

"In a sun-scorched land you will be like a well-watered garden, like

a spring whose waters never fail."
Isaiah 58:11 

This is an area of the website we thought would be a good idea to set aside as a storeroom for writings that we felt could encourage, teach, uplift and inspire one another.

We plan to add to this, as time goes by, so that folk can take their own time to reflect on what they've heard, and also to benefit those unable to attend our services. We hope you'll enjoy them, be challenged by them and be blessed as you read them. Just click on the links below.

 

With our blessings

The Rev'd Christine Bloomfield:

Regular visitors will have heard Christine, as she shared with, and ministered to us in the Manche Churches during her all-too-short stay with us as a visiting priest in May 2016.

It seems somehow appropriate to make a separate space here to archive Christine's moving sermons, along with her brief, but meaningful, letter to the church as a whole, written as she and her husband, Lionel, journeyed back to their home in Alsace.
