Message from the Vicar:

Thank you to our Hope Into Action (HIA) Team!

Our HIA house is about to say goodbye to it’s second tenant who is moving into a new flat as I write.  The team have worked tirelessly to support our tenants in turning their lives around.  It has been a privilege to watch this team at work.  We move into a new phase and hope to welcome a Ukrainian family of four into the house in the coming weeks.  Their visa’s have been applied for and we are waiting…..

Glenvale Park Community Days:

During the first week of the summer holidays we will be running three community mornings at Glenvale Park.  This is an opportunity for the church to be present, making relationships with our community and bringing God’s kingdom to bear in so many ways – in who we are and how we are, there may even be the opportunity to pray with people and invite them to be part of the faith community.  Maria is leading this and needs as many of us as possible to be involved.
