We've had some great holiday weather in the Peak District this summer. But, sunshine or not, holidays can be stressful.
Some solutions are easy. Cold and wet? Castleton's underground caverns are always a pleasant temperature! Too hot? Paddle at Hall Leys Park, canoe at Carsington Reservoir, splash in the river at Dovedale.
Certain excess holiday baggage - work troubles? health problems? worries about the kids? - can sabotage even stay-at-home holidays more effectively than the weather, and are less easily solved.
So turn to the expert - Jesus. He understands how we work: he designed us. He knows how we feel: no hurt could surpass the betrayal and injury he endured. He's waiting for you to ask for real help - for more than a 'sticking plaster solution' to life's troubles. Reject your 'excess baggage' as if it contained a terrorist bomb. Get the expert to deal with it and you can walk away free.
You're welcome to drop in to Steep Turnpike Church. Talk about the solution that the God of the Bible offers everyone. It's for every age, religion and culture.
Make this the summer you meet someone special - the one person who has the power to change everything.
You can also read about the Olympic Torch passing through Matlock in 2012 - it came right past our church!
Current Special Events... there's something for everyone, even if you've never been before.
We run special discussion events for anyone interested in finding out more about Christianity.
At the moment we're running
"ONE LIFE. WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?" (Christianity Explored)
- which, in its informal and very enjoyable way, has provoked some unusual, entertaining and inspiring conversation!
Dates vary, so please contact us if you might be interested - we should be able to find a time to suit you.
Would you like some information about the next session?
