This year Christian Aid Week runs from 10 - 16 May.  Normally, members of our church and community would be going around Bishopstoke knocking on doors and collecting people's donations.  I love doing that, partly because I get the chance to chat to many of my neighbour...

Please read Exodus 2.1-10.

So much has changed in just a few days.  Coronavirus has gone from being something out there to something that’s right with us.  From something that was affecting other people to something that’s affecting every one of us.  There have been new...

Dear Friends

Last year our family visited Windsor Castle twice.  We only went the second time because once you’ve bought the tickets they last a year, but it can be good to see things again and things had changed a little since our first visit.  Queen Mary’s Dolls House...
