WIMBLEDON & OLYMPICS LIVE IN ST MARY’S CAFE!
The people of the UK are experiencing their usual ups and down in the realm of sport - the dramas of the Euro 2016 football to name but one.
During June and July we watched dramas unfold on the tennis courts at Wimbledon and watching matches LIVE in the Heritage Cafe was a great success. We are excited to be able to show LIVE OLYMPICS coverage at St Mary’s on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons from 1.30pm. All are welcome
Wimbledon in the past has always been dependant on the weather, affecting play. The centre court roof has enabled enthusiasts to see at least one match. The weather, at least would seem fairly predictable in Rio for the games, so we hope for no interruption to the schedule on that account. Interruptions and challenges are the 'stuff' of life. During recent political events and troubles in the world, as a nation we have been left with a sense of uncertainty.
For ourselves, personally there’s a sense of the uncertainty of not knowing what a day will throw at us! Storms can suddenly appear and we are challenged as we respond to what life brings. As Christians we believe that God is our centre court roof’! Not only is He present when the ‘rains’ come, but protects us and enables us to stand when it’s tough. For ourselves and our nations we trust in a faithful God during difficult times.
“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.”
Psalm 46 The Bible
Come and join us any Wednesday or Thursday afternoons for coffee and cake! There will always be a friendly welcome and a listening ear!
