Life in the 21st Century

Few would deny that the world, including our nation, is facing many difficulties, not only is there the economic situation but also broken relationships, family breakdown, stress and moral and spiritual problems.

We believe that the Bible and the Christian message are relevant to these and a host of other issues affecting people’s lives and we try to look at these in our services each week.
