Bunting crafted by Heather during lockdown to celebrate the content of the Sunday service or small group Bible studies
Another joint worship song:
I wrote this some years ago and always have it with me in my Bible.
Spoken from the Heart
I often say I find it hard to hear you speak to me
To know your voice, to know your will, to know the way to be
I sometimes sit and listen and hope to hear from you
But my mind constantly wanders to the things I have to do
I talk to you throughout the day as I go about my tasks
But I never hear that “heavenly voice” that answers when I ask
People say “God spoke you know” and it always puzzles me
My life is oh so silent – the only voice is me
Then I look back and I see my life, the way you’ve led me through
The things I’ve done, the way they’ve worked, it must be down to you
The miracle of healing, my husband and my home
The work you’ve given us to do to bring the lost back home
And as I read the Bible, your words stand clear apart
“I will put my laws into their minds and write them on their hearts
So I know I can move forward, in your love there is no fear
You’re teaching me and leading me in your way, year after year
I realise now, you live in me and so direct my thoughts
Decisions that I make are by the Holy Spirit brought
As I lay my life before you and let you have your way
I don’t need to hear a voice out loud for you to have your say
So in future I won’t say to folk that I find it hard to hear
I’ll explain how you have better ways to take away our fear
How you fill us with your Holy Ghost, so we can always know
That you will keep us on your path and guard the way we go

Our first ORIGINAL song 🙌🏼 Hopefully the first of many ‘For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.’ [Ephesians 2:8-10]
These beautiful illustrations were done by Aleyna, while stuck at home fighting the tail-end of Coronavirus (after it visited their household).

Even the youngest have been being creative in lockdown.
From Easter crosses,
to garden art,
these girls have put their talents to the test. They thought they would bless their very own postman with the best ‘Thank yous’ any postie could hope for!
