Principal services - July to September 2009

During summer, we enter what is often a quieter time in our church's calendar. Many are away on holiday or visiting friends. Rest and refreshment is important -- even Jesus sometimes led his disciples away from the crowds into the hills.

But equally, we should not forget the importance in our spiritual life, of taking time to be in God's presence - just as when Jesus went into the hills it was often the opportunity he took to pray.
During the summer season we will take the opportunity to continue to learn lessons from the apostles.

If you are going away on holiday, may you come back refreshed in body, mind and spirit.
