I the LORD do not change

One of my least favourite things is shopping. Food shopping is one thing but going to town, not really my thing. In fact I very rarely go to town, and most definitely only go if I have a specific reason for doing so. For some the weekly trip to town can be a highlight, browsing the shops, meeting family or friends for coffee all of which are good solid reasons. For me…

Messy Church September 2016

Messy Church is a name given to a form of church that is very different to usual church services.  Many churches are now holding Messy Church and it is very appealing to families but should not be considered just for children.

Whilst some celebrated, some spoke out in anger, this affected all, including the Christian Church. The country hit a low as scenes of…

The Great Escape

Having just commemorated the 70th anniversary of VE day I thought it appropriate to think about one of the great events from the Second World War. The escape in 1944, from the Stalag Luft 3 POW camp, immortalised forever in the all-time classic war film that we get the chance to watch every Christmas; The Great Escape. As in most films depicting real events, scenes are…

Soaring High

Those of you who know me well, know that I have many hobbies and interests. Yet if I had to narrow them down to just two it would without a doubt be these two; Bird watching and fishing. The joy of these two is that often I can combine them, for whilst sitting fishing I can see many species of bird’s either flying, swimming or at rest. To catch a glimpse of a Kingfisher…

Feeding in the Word

As I sit down to put a few thoughts together for this edition of the Lighthouse, I and many others have in mind thoughts about a summer holiday, a getaway or just a break from the normal routine of life. The schools are in their last week of term; children and probably more so their teachers are looking forward to a six week break, as a church we take a break from the…
