|Thank you for finding
your way to us! Here on our website you can find out all you need to
know about us. But most important of all, you can get a flavour of the
warm welcome you will receive when you step into our Church on a Sunday
approach us, you have already spotted our spire on Ballards Lane, London
N3. We still look like a Church, with tower and spire, but through the
modern glass doors you can see that we are people of all ages and from
many parts of the world.
This summer we were able to take some holiday, for the first time since 2019.
Our short break happened while the temperatures in London hit record levels and wildfires burned to the east of the city.
We noticed the effects on our garden, and especially on some plants that we’d been looking after through the summer. A few days without water left them looking very sad!
Whether we love hot weather, or struggle with it, we all go through experiences in life which leave us scorched and wilting – anxieties about our health, or our loved ones, pressures at work, financial problems, bereavements, and so much more.
Sometimes it takes all our energy, courage and determination just to keep going.
In the Bible Jesus meets a woman who comes to fetch water at the hottest time of the day.
It’s clear that she has been rejected by her community, and their conversation reveals personal needs and spiritual thirst.
Jesus promises the woman living water – connection to the life and love of God, for now and for always.
The same promise is available to everyone who looks to Jesus for hope and meaning in life.
Jesus doesn’t promise an easy life, but he does promise help and strength which never dries up.
