O be joyful in the Lord all ye lands: serve the Lord with gladness and come before his presence with thanksgiving.  Be ye sure that the Lord he is God: it is he that has made us and not we ourselves; we are his people and the sheep of his pasture.
Go your way into his gates with thanksgiving and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him and speak good of his name.
Jubilate Deo from Morning Prayer.

“There is a green hill far away, Without a city wall
Where our dear Lord was crucified, who died to save us all.
He died, that we might be forgiven, He died to make us good
That we might go at last to heaven, saved by His precious blood.”  Mrs C.F. Alexander 1823-1895

Beat the February Blues

Beat the February Blues at

St Augustine’s Church

We had a fantastic social event to warm our hearts and lift our spirits during the February freeze. There was a quiz (including a tasting round!) for our adults and games and activities for our children. It was great to spend time together and share a tasty home-cooked meal.
