Thought for the month

summer 2022

A message from Matthew

One question I enjoy asking people is “what is your favourite time of year?”

I think we are lucky to live in a country that has four seasons – four distinct times of year each with its own character and personality. Most people will answer my question without any pause for thought “SUMMER!”

And so we reach this wonderful time of year, with plenty of daylight hours, warm days and blue skies (I hope!!).

In our church year we have celebrated Christmas, Easter and now Pentecost – God has been shown to us as the person of Jesus, has died and risen to new life. Pentecost celebrates the giving to us of the gift of the Holy Spirit, to guide us and remind us constantly of our loving relationship with God.

It’s almost as if we are now fully equipped to enjoy the summer and all that it brings with it.

Talking of that it is wonderful to be able to have celebrated the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. It is  also the season for the St Christopher’s Summer fete, a really popular and important event for all the community. Do have a look at what events and activities St Christopher’s will be offering in the weeks ahead, on the What’s On  page of this website.

I do so hope that you have a blessed and happy summer.

With love and blessings,
Matthew signature021c
