Where he had lived with his wife and family one well liked and known far from his Hometown and countryside

April Methodist Update

As we move in to this Easter season the Methodist community would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Happy Easter. As well as chocolate and flowers may we all realize the incredible message of this time of year. The good news is that God is love and that God loves us so much that he came and lived amongst us and then, in Jesus, gave his life on our behalf. He died so that we might live. Then he conquered death and is alive now waiting for each one of us to respond to him personally.
