Pulman’s View churches
Thursday, 17 October 2013
DARRELL Holmes writes from Kilmington: “A couple came to the church office during the week saying they were hoping to retire to Colyton. They asked about the area and about our church congregation.
“Then, on the following Sunday, they came to the church service and immediately found a lot in common with various members of the congregation.
“Being part of the church is like being part of an extended family – one which not only spreads across the UK, but right around the world. Church congregations not only provide a welcome to those moving into an area, they provide support and encouragement to local people week by week.
“If anyone feels lonely, they should try going along to their local congregation. Not only will they find people who are interested in them, even better they will find God who is interested in them, and loves them deeply.”
