To offer an inclusive, open and affirming ministry, to demonstrate a strong concern for social issues, both in our local community and further afield. We aim to work positively with other church and fait communities. We strive to be a friendly and welcoming church for all.

Greetings from the Manse,

Welcome to today’s service, I hope you have been keeping cosy during these cold winter days. 
The snow has offered the Purden house a wonderful distraction from Google classroom as snowmen have been assembled and hot chocolate is an essential requirement after a winter walk. 
Yesterday was a reflective day for me as I marked one year since my ordination. That Thursday night was a powerful evening with a tangible sense of Gods’ presence as our family and the church started a new chapter of life together. 
The story has not enfolded as I had imagined but then life rarely does. A year on and I am grateful for the care that so many have shown me, for the resilience and commitment that the church has to not just drop tools but to keep growing and keep moving forward. 
Our prayer remains that you sense Gods presence with you as you join us for worship and we pray in these winter days you would know Gods warmth and love surround you and fill you. 
In Church Sunday Services and Private Prayer : Whilst we remain in these heightened restrictions our Church building must remain closed for Sunday Worship and Private Prayer. We will keep you advised of any changes to this as soon as we are able.
Meanwhile we will continue to connect digitally, here are the links for this morning’s Service and we pray that God will speak to us all as we unite in worship.
