Do we think that being a Christian is about being perfect? God doesn’t. Why not look at our new series imperfect characters of faith where we look at Samuel. And how we need to really see.
Characters of Faith - Samuel

Working party needed
As church continues to look to open and restart activities we are seeking two or three volunteers who would be willing to do a deep clean in the church centre kitchens. They have not been used for over a year so everything needs to be taken out of the cupboards and washed, the cupboards need to be wiped out and also the cookers need to be cleaned.
If you can help please let the office know. Thank you.

So often we think that being a Christian means being perfect but God doesn’t view it this way. He sees and loves us as we are.
This is the message of our new series on ‘Imperfect Characters of Faith’. Today's video is about Samuel, a great prophet of God who often heard God's voice, starting from when he was a boy. But Samuel was not perfect. Samuel thought he knew what someone was like just by looking at them. How often do we judge people based on first appearances?
Watch the video to find out what God teaches Samuel.
