TAB Christmas Marathon

  Since Easter, our established members of TAB (TotesAmazeBells, St Ed’s youth club) have been welcoming several new young people to the group.

Nowhere to hide

Sometimes there is just nowhere to hide. If God is calling you, there can be no excuses because he knows you through and through and he knows what he wants from you. If you feel you haven’t the gifts, he will shower them upon you. If you haven’t the courage, he will hold you up. If you don’t know what to say, he will put the words in your mouth.
