Prayer - Yancey.jpg

After two false starts, it with relief and a certain amount of chagrin that I can say that this project is ready. Over the next two weeks, there will be a series of quotes from the book on our FaceBook page and the Home page of the Website; the series will run through Lent.

Trained as a journalist, Philip Yancey has a knack of writing books that tackle questions of faith in ways that

are readable and absorbing. This book on Prayer is no exception; we benefit from a journalist’s tenacity to get to the heart of the matter and be able to talk plainly about what they found; his years as a thinking and committed Christian mean that we find we are joining a fellow traveler on the road, rather than an expert in theory.



You can buy the book and read it, new £8/used £4.

We have some copies in the church library available to borrow.

Each day in Lent, you will be able to listen to a reading from it,

posted on FaceBook and the Website.

The book is a good read even on a busy day, each chapter is broken into 5-10 minute sections that are worthwhile in themselves – I found it helpful to read the book like that whether busy or not, it gives time to savour the thought before moving on. It is a hugely helpful book by a popular author which I find myself going back to again and again as an encouragement and help in faith as much as in prayer.

Meeting On Line

Cafe Church continues online this autumn and we're always glad to welcome new people. Each session lasts just one hour which gives us time to catch up with one another's news, to pray together, and to explore the Bible or any questions people might have about the Faith.


Currently we're taking a detailed look at the Gospel of St John with the help of the gentle yet thorough teaching videos of Frances Hogan, an Irish missionary and Biblical expositor. Her approach is excellent because it enables us to go deep without being overly complicated. You can get a flavour from her website:
