forever- the Spirit of truth.

A message from Revd David Grundy, Associate Minister

Dear Friends,

During the last few weeks, according to a recent survey, average attendance at church services (that are now all online) across the country has risen from about 6% to about 25% of the population and 44% of people in the UK have prayed and believe that prayer is playing a major role in helping to improve the situation. 

So, for regular visitors or church members, let’s all do what we can to help those people who are now genuinely looking for meaning and faith  – no one expects us to be experts, but just talking in a natural way about our own experience can help others on their own journey. And for anyone arriving at this website as a relative newcomer, a warm welcome to you and we hope that you find refreshment, comfort and hope. We would love to hear from you. 

Very best wishes, David
