WIMBLEDON & OLYMPICS LIVE IN ST MARY’S CAFE!
The people of the UK are experiencing their usual ups and down in the realm of sport - the dramas of the Euro 2016 football to name but one.
During the last week in June and first week in July we watch dramas unfold on the tennis courts at Wimbledon and this year matches can be seen LIVE in the Heritage Cafe at St Mary’s on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons from 1.30pm. The Olympics will also be shown.
There was a time when a rainy day would mean recorded matches were shown instead of scheduled ones. Coverage was pretty uncertain! But now we can at least see the centre court match with its impressive roof making play possible. Other games on outer courts will still need to be rescheduled! Recent political events have also left the nation feeling uncertain.
For ourselves, personally there’s a sense of the uncertainty of not knowing what a day will throw at us! Storms can suddenly appear and we are challenged as we respond to what life throws at us. As Christians we believe that God is our ‘centre court roof’! Not only is He present when the ‘rains’ come, but protects us and enables us to stand when it’s tough. For ourselves and our nations we trust in a faithful God during difficult times.
“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.”
Psalm 46 The Bible
Come and join us any Wednesday or Thursday afternoons for coffee and cake! There will always be a friendly welcome and a listening ear!
