I hope that this website might extend a welcome and assurance that here is a place that you will be given a dignity and a hospitality. Perhaps you are looking for a time of Mass or the possibility of booking a baptism or a wedding. You may be new to the area and thinking of joining this community of faith. Whatever the reason I hope and pray that your needs are met and that we will be able to help you in your search.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
FIFTH SUNDAY OF EASTER
15th May 2022
The great Gandhi is reported to have said, I love your Christ, but your Christians are not like Christ. From this we might be fairly sure that the Christians he encountered were not living up to the ideal reflected in today’s Gospel. That is certainly unfortunate – but what image of Christianity do we present by our actions and by our love? Do we love like Jesus did, to the point of laying down our lives?
It can be easy to be consumed with rituals and great debates about what we believe. But Jesus‘s command today is simply to love. In its simplicity it is exceptionally difficult. Love knows no bounds. Love does not say that’s enough, love puts the needs of others ahead of our own. In our global society we see that vast numbers of people have more needs than we do. Where do we begin, perhaps with a single step so we love one another and in doing so we become more devoted Disciples of Christ.

HOW TO PRAY
“Prayer.” When you see that word, what thoughts or images come to mind? Does talking to God come easy to you? Or do you struggle to pray? Knowing what to say to God doesn’t always feel easy, and sometimes, prayer gets weighed down by our misconceptions about what a conversation with God should look like. Canon David has offered the following short document containing advice and help when praying to God.
