We, […]


It’s summer and time for our choirs to be on vacation. But that doesn’t mean that we want a vacation from music. Anyone who will sing, play an instrument or (if you’re really talented) do both, is welcome to pick a Sunday to make a joyful noise to our God. Please see Denise Dean so […]

From the Pastor’s desk

I must confess I’m always unimpressed by the Statements of Faith that churches post on their sites. They just lie there, impassive, motionless, like an impressive monument artfully designed, yet lifeless. What’s a Statement of Faith anyways?
