We are living in strange and difficult times and are having to adapt to new ways of living. As a church we want to give the best we can to the Eldwick community.
We believe in a loving God who wants the best for us. We believe that God demonstrated that love by coming in Jesus, who experienced life in every aspect both good and bad before dying on a cross. We rejoice that death could not hold Jesus and that he was resurrected on Easter Sunday, defeating the consequences of death.
Our objective is to show and act out God’s love for his creation. And of course, sometimes we fail, but we know that God loves to forgive those who recognise their failures.
Normally we try to meet the basic needs of local people – of faith and of non-faith – by holding regular services, and by accommodating both happy occasions such as weddings, wedding blessings, baptisms (christenings) and thanksgivings; and sad occasions, such as bereavement or funerals. Sadly, the Covid-19 pandemic has changed how provide these services and restrictions are now in place.
Our ‘Prayer Lawn’ with its knitted flowers helped our community through these difficult times. Each flower is a prayer said or made by the person, young or old, who planted it. The flowers have now been relocated to make space for our remembrance day field of poppies. If you would lik someone to pray for you, we have a team who would love to do so. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org in confidence and a member of the church will pray for you.
You’ll notice that we use the term ‘we’. However, it is not ‘our’ church as it belongs to the whole of the Eldwick community, so it is your church as well. When this pandemic is over, and we can fully re-open the building, why not come along and see us.
