Life is returning to normal as the Christmas and New Year holidays have finished. Today there will be a communion service here at St. Martin’s and the café will be open again. We hope that friends will brave the weather to meet up and share a time of fellowship together. Christmas and New Year breaks are often isolating and lonely, so it is lovely that we can welcome people back into our community activities once more. We ask, Loving Father, that you will bless everyone who comes to St. Martin’s today with your peace and love. Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
