Message from ‘Team Spirit’

Spring is the season is to open fling open the windows, get rid of the cobwebs, and attempt to de-clutter by disposing of stuff we no longer need.

We look forward to longer days, brighter weather, and new possibilities.

As a church we are urged to do the same thing:

Open the widows of our hearts and minds, get rid of the cobwebs of distant memories

And begin to glimpse a vision of possibilities for the future.

The message of Easter gives us all the opportunity of new life and a new beginning in Christ

Easter was not just for the few; but for all

May we know the deep 9inner assurance that whatever life brings, whatever we face, however things are seen

Christ’s will shall be done and His Kingdom come

We have received the good news, may we learn how tro share it.
