Dear Friends

I hope this finds you all well as the heatwave continues . There will be no recording or Email service next week as I am having a Sunday off, normal service will be resumed on Sunday 8th August when we will also have a service at Torthowald. Plans are also underway to rearrange the seating at all three churches to allow for the fact that physical distancing has been reduced to one metre.

You will have to phone ahead to Andrea on 01387263652 and we will update this page with the current calendar.

What Is It We’re Looking For

So often we try to fill the void
With what the world provides,
In hope that we will find contentment
For our dreary, empty lives
But listen my friend it’s only temporary
And is like chasing the wind,
The things of the world simply won’t fulfil
The unhappiness we have within

We mustn’t look for our fulfilment
In pleasures that won’t satisfy,
For we can never fulfil what’s lacking
Unless Christ comes inside
For God has created us to need Him
And fills us with His love,
So we won’t need more worldly things,
Nor crave for ungodly stuff

We need to stop and ask ourselves,
What is it we’re looking for?
And can we truly be fulfilled
If we don’t allow the Lord
To come inside and bring the change
That’s needed in our lives
So we will find that true happiness
Is only found in Christ?


Keep safe, keep strong

Love & prayers
