People often come to church when life is most difficult and the Christian life can be hard.
We understand that life is complex and often painful. Family break down, illness, bereavement, and unemployment are everyday struggles for many in our church family. We do not pretend to have all the answers; we cannot claim that our lives are sorted, nor are we professional counsellors.
However, we have discovered God’s grace to us as messed up people. He gives comfort, forgiveness and power to change through Jesus. We therefore welcome those who are experiencing difficulties and will seek to provide support and prayer as Christ teaches.
