Our Churches serve the communities
of Broxted and Chickney,
Duton Hill, Tilty, Great
Easton and Little Easton. Throughout
the centuries many have come to our churches to worship God and
to find peace and inspiration. I would like to take this opportunity
to invite you to our church. Details of our services can be found
in the Church Services section.
Our churches are places where prayers of
thanksgiving have been offered and requests made on behalf of
others throughout the centuries. If you would like us to pray
for you or something which concerns you then view “Say
ONE for me”.
While acknowledging that God is everywhere
it is often in church where people can shut out the commotion
of everyday life, experience the glory of God and feel in touch
with things beyond themselves. Our Churches
are open every day to visitors. Many come to enjoy the rich
history which the churches offer, while others come for the
peace and quiet of the local surroundings
– to pause and to pray.
When you visit our churches, take time to
look at the booklets (which are free), and take what will be useful
for you or for you to pass on to someone else. These include ‘Living
with loss’, ‘Daily strength’ – scripture quotations from the bible
for each day of the month, ‘The little book of help’ – a taster
of what the bible has to say, ‘Why me?’, which helps us to see
that it is natural to ask questions when things get tough. The
booklet called ‘Inspiring prayer’ is for those who pray regularly
or have never really tried it before. It aims to help us explore
God’s invitation to pray. If you are unable to visit soon but
you would like to have copies of any of these booklets visit www.sgmlifewords.com.
We hope to see you during the year at some
of our future events. The main events as they stand at the moment
can be found in Church Services.
With prayerful good wishes for you to experience much joy, peace
and hope this year.
Ivy Crawford (Canon)
