In the midst of all the worries and fears, our hope is secure in Jesus Christ. May these verses from the Bible be of comfort to you now.
Deuteronomy 31:6 “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Psalm 46:1-3 “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.”
Nahum 1:7 “The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him.”
Hebrews 13:5 “God has said, ‘Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.’”
With much love,
Revd Josh Penduck
Rector of Newcastle under Lyme, St Giles with St Thomas Butterton
About St Giles
We are a large, friendly Anglican church in the heart of Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire. We draw our congregation from many walks of life and Christian backgrounds. Our diverse worship reflects this breadth, as we aim to encourage and help each other on our journeys of faith and reflect Christ’s love in our small part of the wider world.
Our main Sunday service is at 10.30am every Sunday, although we have other services throughout the week.
During the current covid-19 restrictions our main 10.30am Sunday service can be found online on our You tube channel, along with other special services. Our usual regular weekday services are NOT currently taking place, however we are now open for private prayer as detailed at the top of the page. All are welcome to come.
