At this Rail

At this rail my parents were married . At this rail they gave thanks and dedicated me to God in baptism. At the age of thirteen I made a public declaration of my faith, gave my life to Jesus and became a member of the church -- at this rail. A few years later, when tragedy struck, I knelt at this rail in the dark, shouting my grief at God and pushing Him away - only to find that the harder I pushed, the more aware I became of His loving presence.

Redevelopment - Autumn Update 2019

A second pre-Planning Application was deemed necessary which was submitted in June and which received a favourable response. This was then followed with the full Planning Application in July and we were delighted to receive planning approval on the 30th August.

Redeveloping our Church for the 21st century

Our feasibility study was presented at the coffee morning on 21st January. Rowlands Gill Church Council met on 15th February to discuss the proposals further. It was recognised that the current plans, as presented on 21st January, are not the final product and will require further amendments. However, the Church Council felt there was enough information available to carry out a consultation of the full Church membership in order to gain further feedback and gauge levels of support for a scheme of this nature.
