New Website

We’re pleased to finally have our new website live, which is built on WordPress for the curious. If you’re tech-savvy, you can subscribe to our RSS feed and we’ll try and arrange for a mailing list at some point too.

One of my Christmas talks, based on the Live Aid song, was entitled “Do they know it’s Christmas?” Sadly, most people don’t and this season of the year provides a window of opportunity to share the good news of great joy for all people – and especially with those people who don’t normally darken the doors of a church at any other time of year…
