UK News



about Brexit, not to mention the choosing of a new leader for the Conservative party and the doubts about the leadership of the Labour party - don't we seem to be in a bit of a mess?

Believe it or not, this isn't new! But perhaps, since we now have twenty-four hour news coverage and the immediacy of social media - it just seems that there is no escape from all the chatter and noise.

So it is good that we can, if we wish, take a little bit of time out to be calm and quiet. Maybe that's why God ordained that there should be at least one day in seven in which we might have some breathing space from life's pressures. Sunday is a good day for that - a day of refreshment and relaxation.

Christians across the world have recognised the value of that rest day - a day free from the pressures of work and other responsibilities. It's also a good time to meet with other like-minded believers to worship the God who, in His wisdom, knew that we needed a break from other things just to focus on spiritual things rather than continuing the 'rat-race' of life.

We'd love to welcome you at one of our services - you might find it helpful and refreshing too. So why not join us this weekend - you'll be made most welcome.

At Upper Gornal:
10.45am - Carole Donnison;
 6.00pm - Bill Caldwell;

At Lake Street:
10.45am - Rev Keith Harris;
