Thoughts and Musings

“If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal”.
This is the start of 1 Corinthians 13 the well-known passage used at many a wedding. But after the wedding day has ended the hard graft of working at a relationship begins, or so I am told as I am single. I have borrowed the following from a friend Facebook post, many thanks Margret.

Lifelong commitment is not what everyone thinks it is. It’s not waking up early every morning to make breakfast and eat together. It’s not cuddling in bed together until both of you peacefully fall asleep. It’s not a clean home and a homemade meal every day. It’s someone who steals all the covers or snores like a chainsaw. It’s sometimes slammed doors, and a few harsh words, disagreeing, and the silent treatment until your hearts heal. Then…forgiveness! It’s coming home to the same person everyday that you know loves and cares about you, in spite of and because of who you are. It’s laughing about the one time you accidentally did something stupid. It’s about dirty laundry and unmade beds without finger pointing. It’s about helping each other with the hard work of life! It’s about swallowing the nagging words instead of saying them out loud. It’s about eating the easiest meal you can make and sitting down together at 10 p.m. to eat because you both had a crazy day. It’s when you have an emotional breakdown and your love lays with you and holds you and tells you everything is going to be okay, and you believe them. It’s when “Netflix and Chill” literally means you watch Netflix and hang out. It’s about still loving someone even though sometimes they make you absolutely insane, angry, and hurt your feelings. Who loves you for fat or thin, happy or grumpy, young or old. Living with the person you love is not perfect, and sometimes it’s hard, but it’s amazing, comforting, and one of the best things you’ll ever experience.

Who we are

We are a fairly traditional Village Church but always open to new ways of reaching out through worship to our local communities and congregation. St Mary's mission is to make Jesus real in today’s life and part of this is to welcome our friends from the Indian Orthodox Church to worship with us. Our church, part of the Church of England, has a dedicated volunteer leadership team headed by the vicar. As well as giving support and guidance, St Mary's provides a sanctuary at the heart of Knutton.

"We want to discern what God is doing in His world and join in…serving our neighbours, community and wider world."

Where are we

St Mary's is easily accessible with nearby carparks. The Church is in the centre of the Village of Knutton. Parking is available either on street or on the Community Centre Car Park across from the Church itself.
