1st May 2022

Hello Everyone

A beautiful sunny day like this Saturday, on a Bank Holiday weekend, lifts the spirits and fills the heart with warmth and joy, which is so appreciated, especially when we look in the face of the broader world picture.  This afternoon, after a busy week of events, St George's Church, Toddington had a wonderful afternoon celebrating its 800 years anniversary, blessed to have Bishop Richard, the Quintet Choir, and so many people attending keen to share the moment and the memories and a follow-on cup of tea and piece of cake.  

How a sunny intervention can make all the difference and we think particularly of those who are struggling at the moment.  As Christians we carry God's light and it's meant to be shared. Like a torch on a dark night it is at its best when switched on. Let's get switched on, resourced by the love of God.

There's plenty to switch on to in the parishes at the moment.
