Dear Friends,             How will you celebrate Christmas? Of course, there are the family traditions; the decorations, Christmas trees and all the rest; great food and drink. There are the parties and Christmas cards and phone calls. What perspective are we to have as Christians?             Christmas is about the humility of God in Jesus…

Dear Friends, It is all too easy to become cynical about human nature and have our view of the world coloured by all the bad news we hear. If that is you, can I encourage you to read a book entitled “Where was God when that happened?” by Christopher Ash. It shows us how there…

Dear Friends,           Next Sunday we are seeking to repeat the remembrance day procession as last year as well as gathering at the flag pole in Eight Ash Green. This provides a great opportunity for a visible presence in the villages of Fordham and Eight Ash Green. For those who do not or cannot process…

Dear Friends, As Easter approaches there is much to celebrate and great news to share! I confess to finding the struggles of contending within the Church of England and leading our response to them a great burden. I am sure that for many of us there are far deeper and more painful burdens to bear….

Dear Friends, As you may know, Julia Puxley, our church secretary, has not been well for a while now. We are very grateful for the extra work that Roger Miles (assisted by Matthew Van De Broek) and Viv McGuinness have done to enable the office and our financial records to continue. Thankfully, we have also…

Dear Friends, As a church we do not emphasise lent as a period of fasting. This is largely because it does not appear in the Bible and whilst it can be helpful, it can encourage us to public boasting about fasting, which Jesus encourages his people not to do. In Matthew 6:16-18 Jesus says “When…
