PRAYING THE PSALMS Today at our 9.30am service we begin a series in the Psalms which will run through June, July and August, excluding the Family Praise services. Each week we’ll consider one Psalm; We’ll seek to explore its content and theme, and reflect on what it teaches us. Now over these few weeks we won’t be able to do justice to all 150 Psalms, we just can’t fit them in…… and so right at the start of this series can I encourage you to do some summer reading. I’ve worked out that if you were to read 2 Psalms each day, maybe one in the morning and one in the evening, starting today, you’d finish by the first week of September. And so I’d really recommend giving it a go – read them through, think them through, pray them through and allow them to dwell with you this summer. Revd Emma
Thank you from Tina Cottam. Thank you very much for the beautiful flowers and gifts given to me as I stood down as church warden.

I am looking forward to being slightly less busy but continuing to be part of our mission in Denmead supporting Emma and Steve Venn as my replacement.
