I know things aren’t as rosy as they seemed back in good old 2008, but despite the recession we still have a lot to be thankful for.
Harvest is a time to remember that and not to forget those who are less fortunate. God cares for us in each an every circumstance of life.
On Sunday we want to encourage everyone to come along and bring food (non-perishables please) to be donated to the Storehouse homeless project in Trowbridge, then join us all for a simple but hot thanksgiving lunch, after spending time considering what really matters in this day and age, and through out all time.

Church history is a bit lost on some folk, but it never ceases to amaze me when you think about what it might have been like to grow up at a different time. How did people try to work out their Christianity under such different circumstances?
Today, Robert Oliver at the minister’s fraternal at Bradford introduced us to the life of William Kiffin who I had never heard of. His dates are 1616-1701, and one is bound to think, what’s that to me?
What I came to think however, was just how much this man had shaped my, and probably your life. Continue reading “William Kiffin and the Bradford Minister’s Fraternal”
