Not just an attender

View from the pew

He turned around and asked me through a mouthful of banana bread “which church do you go to?” and without hesitation I responded, “I attend St Michael’s”.

Events such as the attempted coup in Turkey, the tragic situation in Aleppo, Britain voting to leave the EU, and the US election all took centre…

Community, View from the pew

Sing Praise Together

People, View from the pew

When I was asked if I would write for the ‘View from the Pew’ my immediate reaction was, “No way, I wouldn’t know what to say”. However this started a thought process of what is it that I love about church? Well, I love the people – they are the church. I love the children…

View from the pew

I don’t know about you, but sometimes it feels like there are so many things in life competing for my time and attention (and I am only a Uni student!). Whether it is work stresses, relationships, financial hardships, health struggles, or loss of a sense of joy in the gospel, it can be so easy…

View from the Pew – Providence

View from the pew

Over many years I’ve seen God’s providence in so many ways. It has always been a great encouragement to me to see God work in ways that I wouldn’t expect. Sometimes he asks us to wait, other times he changes our direction. But in all situations I think it has helped me to trust him…
