I’ve never liked Diversity. It has no place in decent society. Of course, they’re definitely talented, but I think Britain’s Got Talent is best served by performing dog routines rather than complex displays of choreographic genius. Anyway…why is it that Christianity is often seen as the enemy of diversity in modern society?

Two racehorses and a dog are in the stable on the night before the big race. The old horse says, “Kid, I have a favour to ask. Tomorrow’s the last race of my career. If I win, they’ll have a big parade in my honour and put me in a nice pasture for the rest of my life. If I lose, they’ll send me to … Continue reading Is there such a thing as right or wrong?
We’ve all seen them: the Facebook posts that tell us we’re awesome – sometimes inspiring, sometimes cheesy, sometimes with spelling mistakes… (But, of course, no one has the right to tell YOU how to spell the words YOU want to create!).

Bunnies and eggs are very nice, but do you really need yet another chocolate-themed celebration this year? Make sure you don’t miss out on what is far more meaningful: the historical events which tell us who God really is and what he offers to every single one of us! The Church@4 service on Good Friday (at 4pm) is a great event to come to if … Continue reading Come and celebrate the greatest week in history!
