It's a boy!

We are pleased to announce that Anita has been safely delivered of a baby boy today, New Year's Day 1st January 2009. Mother, father James and baby are all doing well.

Named Benjamin, he is a brother for Kathryn and Abigail.

The church family is delighted at this good news, we praise and thank God for the gift of new life, and we extend our love to James, Anita, Kathryn, Abigail and the new baby. We all rejoice with them.

"Before I formed you in the womb - I knew you."

1 Corinthians 13 - Christmas Version

If I decorate my house perfectly with plaid bows,
Strands of twinkling lights and shiny balls,
But do not show love to my family,
I'm just another decorator.

If I slave away in the kitchen,
Baking dozens of Christmas cookies,
Preparing gourmet meals
And arranging a beautifully adorned table at mealtime
But do not show love to my family,
I'm just another cook.

If I work at a soup kitchen
Carol in the nursing home,
And give all that I have to charity
But do not show love to my family,
It profits me nothing.

Team Hoyt

If you've never heard of Team Hoyt then it's my privilege to inform you. Team Hoyt is a father-and-son team composed of Dick Hoyt, a retired Lieutenant-Colonel in the US Air National Guard, and his son Rick. They compete in endurance events like marathons and triathlons. What makes them special is that Rick suffers from cerebral palsy and is paralysed. Dick is the motive power for both of them - when running, Dick pushes Rick in a wheelchair, when swimming Dick pulls Rick in an inflatable dinghy, and when cycling Dick pedals whilst Rick rides in a special seat over the front wheel.

Blyth Rainbow

Image of The Spirit of the Staithes

Blyth used to be a large coal-exporting port. Ships would berth at the quayside and trains laden with the coal would travel along an elevated track supported by timber frames - the staithes.

This contemporary aluminium sculpture, "The Spirit of the Staithes", represents those staithes, showing a train at the exact height at which the originals would travel. They would stop next to a ship and discharge the coal directly into the open holds below.
