On Sunday 5th July we celebrated our 97th anniversary. Our guest preacher, Rev Dr Susan Durber (Principal of Westminster College, Cambridge) reminded us not to think in terms of bricks and mortar – we, the people, are God’s building, and Jesus Christ is our foundation stone. A time of fellowship and refreshment followed the service, […]
“There it is again,” I thought, looking up from the pages of ‘Reform’ magazine. By ‘it’ I meant the admonition, often found in Christian writing and addresses these days, to leave our comfort zone.

From 18th to 25th April I experienced and enjoyed God’s World in Sinai Egypt – trekking high into the Sinai and St Catherine protectorate each day for five days.
