    Would so love to know who this wonderful creator is. It has been such a joy to see the toppers change with the seasons & events through the year. ❤️

    Who is the mystery knitter❤️🙏🏻

    Brightens my day these toppers. Thank you knitter.

    Our summer Garden party is in a few weeks time and it would be lovely if the knitter could make a few items for our craft stall.

    Praise to you, O Lord, for the jewel of sight, the treasure of hearing and the glory of speech. Open our eyes to your glory, our ears to your word and our mouths to proclaim your goodness; now and for ever. Amen

    God, You are the light of the minds that know you, the life of the souls that love you and the strength of the hearts that serve you.

Help us to know you, that we may truly love you, so to love you, that we may fully serve you
whom to serve is perfect freedom;

through Jesus Christ our lord. Amen

    Thank you to David Howell for leading our service today and to Noel Drury for bring the Bible alive. Noel spoke about the relevance of Jesus' freeing the man with a legion of demons from his mental and physical chains. He challenged us to think about where we needed help freeing ourselves from our chains, and how we might help others do the same. If you missed the service, you can catch up here: . ...

    God of ourselves,
give us the tenderness to see ourselves as you see us.
Amen.

    Beautiful ❤️🙏🏻

    Heavenly Father,

Thank you for never growing weary or getting tired. Thank you for watching over me each and every day. Help me to remember that you are always there whenever I feel invisible. I’m so grateful that I don’t have to look to man for validation; all I need is given to me by you. Amen

and by your merciful guiding may perform the same. Amen

    Who was Barnabas?

    Barnabas lived at the same time as Jesus and during the life of the early Christian Church he became instrumental in the spreading of the Christian gospel throughout the Mediterranean.  His name means ‘encourager’. Encouragement forms an integral part of our church community at the crossroads in the benefice of Emmer Green with Caversham Park.

    Like Barnabas we want to encourage and support you. Also like Barnabas we believe we have a message we want to share with you, the good news of the gospel which opens up a whole new way of life.
