I hope you are enjoying spring and watching the bulbs bloom and the ivy beginning to grow. I say that as I notice that the battle keeping the ivy under control on the garage wall is about to begin again! Yesterday I really enjoyed the latest Parish Walk led by Ruth and John Chapman beginning at Flax Bourton and roaming over the North Somerset showground then meandering back to our starting point. We walked and talked in lovely weather and now look forward to our next expedition on April 25th around Ashton Hill Woods. If you can please do come and bring family and friends. It’s a lovely way to get to know people better for those of us who are still fit enough for a bit of roaming!
As Lent draws to a close and we look forward to Easter I am grateful for the full and meaningful discussions we have had in the study group on the parable of the Prodigal Son and am pleased to hear that the Alpha course also went very well. We are currently thinking about what we might look at in the groups starting after Easter. The ‘I am’ sayings of Jesus are currently the front runner.
Thinking back over the readings we have heard and preached on during Lent we have seen that the ministry of Jesus includes the proclamation of ‘the kingdom of God’, a realm of equality, fairness, justice, mercy and humility and the fullness of life for all. As we near the election I wonder whether these will be the main themes for our politicians leading up to the election.
CTINAD have organised a hustings meeting at Nailsea School on Monday 27th April at 7.30pm where all our main contenders will be present so why not come along and hear whether that is the case.
As you will see from the diary we have another full and busy month with lots of opportunities to share in worship and fellowship, fundraising for the Nailsea Uganda project on April 18th and enjoying the marvellous sound of our newly refurbished organ in a recital on the 25th. We look forward to welcoming anyone who would like to join us for our worship, or any other gathering. Foremost I wish you a happy Easter when we are reminded that there is hope, always hope for every situation.

Sunday Club is a place for young people to get together, get real, get connected to God in a fun way.
We meet together regularly for a range of services in different styles and hope there is something in our month to allow all our church members to come close to God.
