Join us for a relaxed and informal church service where we look at the big question of suffering.

Often someone will point to the suffering in the world and say 'there can't be a God'.


Sometimes this isn't because they themselves are suffering. It's because they don't want to think about whether or not there is a God. But of course, millions of people through history and in the world today have looked at suffering - even their own - and concluded there must be a good God.

Others however would love to believe in a God who loves them. But they themselves have suffered or are suffering, and it has created a huge barrier to belief. They might have even prayed night and day to God asking him to remove their suffering, without, it would appear, an answer.

We will have a sensitive and thoughtful look at how the Bible and its message about Jesus, a crucified Saviour, helps us understand our suffering and gives us enormous hope in the face of suffering.


We are not offering simple or trite answers. There are no quick fixes. But we want to show that belief in the God of the Bible, the God of the Lord Jesus Christ, is not only compatible with suffering, but actually makes sense of our suffering.

A free breakfast from 10am, we'll start the service at 10.30am.

We'll hear the Bible read and explained, a handful of Christian songs to sing (you can just listen in, no need to sing) and a chance for Q&A.

Children are extremely welcome will have their own group (led by experienced and DBS checked volunteers)

We do not collect money. No one will be ask to volunteer to do anything.

If there is anything we can do to make it easier for you to attend, or you'd like to ask something, fill out the form below or email and we'll get back to you.
