Dear Friends.......

The weekend of 11th / 12th May was an exciting one for us as a church.  Whatever the outcome, the process of the preach-with-a-view weekend gave us an insight to the possibilities of what life could be like for us as part of the newly formed North Downs Surrey Pastorate.


It was a weekend of fellowship and making new connections.   All churches took a part, with members of every church being welcomed at all venues. 


Of course, it helped that the sun was shining, but the sense of optimism and forward momentum was exciting.


For me, the words of one of the hymns that was sung during the service at Reigate Park Church struck a particular chord:

 

Let us build a house where love can dwell

and all can safely live,

a place where saints and children tell

how hearts learn to forgive.

Built of hopes and dreams and visions,

rock of faith and vault of grace;

here the love of Christ shall end divisions:

     All are welcome, all are welcome,

     all are welcome in this place.
