For thousands of years, the Bible has been giving advice and help to ordinary people like you and me, dealing with every experience in life. It is as relevant today as it always has been.

Year of the Bible – A Celebration
In 2011, the King James’ Bible celebrated its 400th anniversary. To mark this event, members of our congregation shared their favourite Bible verses and the reasons why they were special. These stories have been put together in a beautiful booklet, which you can view online or purchase from our church (contact email@example.com for more details).
