January Newsletter

Dear Friends,

Happy New Year! As we embark on this New Year – 2024 – I wonder: what journey of faith is God calling us on? Each of us may face difficult challenges and unexpected diversions: we can’t predict the year ahead. Our recent experiences have shown us that anything and everything can happen. But going on a faith journey with God is a positive, exciting thing. It can give us purpose and meaning; it can be challenging but most importantly it can give us hope, for a better and brighter today and tomorrow. We don’t know what journey God is taking us on this year. But we can be certain that God who calls us is faithful and promises always to be with us, especially when we can’t sense His presence. As we settle into this New Year, whether we have set goals or not, let’s endeavour to step out in faith, seeking God and following Him wherever He calls us to.

God Bless,


Revd Clare Coates,
Lead Minister for Caldecote with Childerley, Dry Drayton and Hardwick
