                                                                 Jesus says, Come to me all of you.
                                                                           come if you like noise, 
                                                                           excitement and celebration.
                                                                  Come if you like quiet and calm 
                                                                           and a chance to catch your breath.
                                                                  Come if you want to grow 
                                                                           and learn and change.
                                                                 Come to me, 
                                                                           all who work and strive 
                                                                           and I will give you rest.

JUNIOR CHURCH

 

A Junior Church for Primary age children now runs each Sunday morning. The children join in worship for the early part of each service and then go into the Vestibule to continue to learn more of Jesus’ love and care for them. Stories, craft work and songs help the children to focus on a particular theme. 

New children will be welcome to join this lively group and to add to the fun of worshipping together.

                                                                   The Great War

 

One hundred years have now passed by, how can we understand?

a million lives were sacrificed, from this green and pleasant land;

but not this land of ours alone, knew falling tears of sorrow;

ten million soldiers from all sides, gave up their tomorrow.

.

.

 

The Battle Fields ran red with blood; in trenches, trembling fear

mingled side by side with valiant heart, determined, purposed, clear.

How did they feel, or stop to think, their youthful days being lost,

or did they fight with valour, not looking back, nor count the priceless cost?

 

These ugly years brought growing bonds, now seeded into beauty;   

Then, boy to youth to fearless, fearful man, fulfilling more than duty.

Across the bloodied fighting grounds; some halfway back, tho’ not retreat,

But grit, and risking life and limb, to lift another from defeat.

 

Did they despise the foe they fought, the men they’d never known?

They’re just a hundred yards away, alike, in battle thrown.

On Christmas Day, an interlude, no enemy there to fight,

Instead, two friendly football teams; an awesome, hopeful sight.

 

Pass, defend, attack, shoot now, the goal is in your sight.

Shoot now, shoot straight, shoot, shoot; shoot with all your might –

It’s Boxing Day, the game’s been played, and we are foe again;

Attack! Shoot! Shoot now; three more killing years of fear and of valiant pain.

 

One hundred years have passed by now, how can we understand?

We can but bow our heads in thanks, for freedom in our land

They paid the price, they gave their all; their sacrifice, our gain;

Now let their greatest gift of Peace, throughout all lands remain.
