Church at a Distance

Deep Wells

Write by Liz Jenkin (Elder GSFC) Growing up in a steep-sided Derbyshire valley, stone wells were a familiar sight in my village. The clear water gushing down the hillsides after rain filled them with water which I only ever saw used for animals’ drinks, but which must have been used to supply humans before theContinue reading “Deep Wells”

Wide Doors

Written by Liz Jenkin (Elder GSFC) It has been such a joy to welcome people into my home once more, and like most people I expect, my first guests were my family. I love entertaining people and having the house full of life, and yet I have been challenged recently to extend my thinking onContinue reading “Wide Doors”

Roots, Rocks and Roses

Written by Lou Everard (Member GSFC) I’ve been praying through some pictures and verses given at a recent Alpha prayer meeting.

For quite a short book, there’s a lot in it (as ever with Tom Wright) to provoke Christian thought and question some of the habits of thought we can get fixed in, especially when facing aContinue reading “Working Together”

In Love

Written by Suzanne Watt (Member GSFC) I am currently reading Brian McLaren’s book, We make the road by walking. A year’s worth of reflections on the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Last week he talked about the difficulties some people find in loving God and suggested loving God is not so different from loving anotherContinue reading “In Love”


Written by Rev Martin Cockerill Over the last few weeks of good weather our lunch routine has turned into a well oiled machine of simplicity. Weather permitting, we have lunch in the garden; the tablecloth is set, a skirmish for plates and cutlery takes place, an argument over who gets what glass and ‘the tub’Continue reading “Simplicity”
