Crisis in Cumbria

Floods 2We remember at this time all those whose homes and livelihoods have been damaged by flooding in Cumbria. We give thanks for the courage and dedication of the emergency services who have come to the help and rescue of all in need. Let us be a community who cares for each other.

Stormy Weather

Dark clouds

And I say, “Oh, that I had wings like a dove!
I would fly away and be at rest;
yes, I would wander far away;
I would lodge in the wilderness;
I would hurry to find shelter
from the raging wind and tempest.”
