Time to Lament 

During the spring, our Elders met for extra reflection, discussion and prayer together. One of the themes that emerged was the importance of lament in this season of our lives - both as Christians and simply as those who have gone through the challenges thrown up by the pandemic.

As well as a sermon series on lament, we are committed to embedding the practice in our life as a church and have created this dedicated page to highlight different resources to aid us in expressing our godly grief.
