As a Christian church, we don't ever align ourselves with a particular political point of view, as we welcome you whatever your convictions. However, as a Christian leader, I feel compelled this weekend to express my abhorrence at the policies on immigration being promoted by President Trump in America, and disappointment at our Prime Minister's initial failure to condemn the policies. There is a wealth of scripture where we are encouraged - even commanded - to care for the immigrant, the refugee and the dispossessed, and as Christians we must make our voices heard in defence of what Jesus would say and do.

Next Sunday is the Christmas Market in Sleaford: please remember that our service begins at 10:00 am rather than 10;45 am. From 11:00 am till 3:00pm, we will be serving free drinks and mince pies in The Source as part of our commitment to the community on this enjoyable day, and there'll be entertainment of various kinds in the church throughout this time. Do come and join us!
The events in the UK and the US in recent months have caused a great deal of distress for many people, especially among the black, ethnic minority, Eastern European and LGBT communities. As a church, we want to affirm that we stand with you at this time, and oppose all forms of racism, homophobia and discrimination, all of which are contrary to everything for which Jesus stood. He was clearly for the poor, the outsider and the marginalised, and we stand with him on this, too.

It's our Harvest Celebration on Sunday morning. There'll be tea and coffee before the service with Danish pastries and doughnuts. Hope you can come and join us!

We had a very enjoyable church day away today at Sutton on Sea in spite of the weather! Thanks to Jack for organising and leading the day: we had some really interesting discussions on what it means to be family and how we can be family in church...definitely some food for thought when the leaders meet next Tuesday!
