What we’re all about ...

Rev'd. Alan Combes

Whoever you are, wherever you come from, you are very welcome at Stream Road.  We are an open, inclusive and extended family.  We don’t have all the answers but we are called to share God’s love for all and to provide a safe space for children, families and people of all ages to journey together through life.  Here is a place where all can grow and learn through mutual support and care.  We are committed to loving our neighbour, supporting those in need and challenging injustice.  So, when we're open, please come in, look around and see what’s going on.  We host many wonderful community and youth groups and we share in a wide variety of worship.  Our Mission Statement, first written down in October 2013 and printed on the mugs we use for coffee after worship each and every Sunday morning reads:  "We aim to worship God and, through the love of Jesus Christ, welcome, educate, serve and care for the whole community."

May our steps be made firm by the Lord who delights in our way and though we stumble, we shall not fall for the Lord will hold us by the hand.  (Psalm 37:23-24)
Rev'd. Alan Combes.

Have you heard? Is it true?
Does this affect me and you?
Is there something I should do?
It’s all so uncertain – I wish I knew.

I know that it’s a virus,
And it’s really very bad.
They haven’t got a vaccine yet
So it’s spreading round like mad.

The politicians and the experts
Talk of this and that.
They show us graphs and talk of deaths,
And scare us with their chat.


“Be still and know that I am God.
I hold you in my hand.
Trust me, love me and love each other.
This is my command.

The future seems uncertain,
But follow me each day.
I know the plans I have for you,
And I’ll lead you on your way.”

We know God keeps His promises,
And that His word is true.
We must keep praying for His help,
With praise, and thanksgiving too.

So when the storm is over
And the fears all depart,
We’ll praise and thank and worship Him:
“My God, how great thou art.”
