Church Tower Project Completed
A BIG thank you to the Heritage Lottery Fund, to all our other grant givers and our individual supporters for all the money raised to enable this project to happen.
The craftsmanship is absolutely fabulous and the tower and spire look truly amazing now that the wok is complete.

Down to Earth
When we stand gazing upwards, bring us down to earth:
with the love of a friend
through the songs of the sorrowing
in the faces of the hungry.
When we look to you for action, demand some work of us
by your touch of fire
your glance of reproof
your fearful longing.
As ruler over all:
love us into action;
fire us with your zeal;
enrich us with your grace
to make us willing subjects of your rule.
Janet Nightingale, Christian Aid, from Acts of the Apostles 1-2
