A massive THANK YOU for all the generous support for the recent Tidy Towns bucket collection. Your support is really appreciated.


In the immediate aftermath of the horrific bomb attack in Manchester on 22nd May this year, the hashtag #roomformanchester began to trend on social media. In the midst of the chaos and terror, locals were opening up their homes and hearts to anyone who had been affected by the incident and was in need of help. People who lived nearby offered food or a cuppa, a place to charge phones, or a bed for the night. Hotels took in dozens of children and teenagers who had been separated from their parents. Taxi drivers offered free lifts, and others offered to drive those who had been stranded home to surrounding areas. People began to queue up at donor banks to give blood to help those injured in the attack. In the face of an evil and senseless act that inflicted so much pain, kindness and goodness shone through.

Difficult times often bring out the best in people. We see it in the way friends rally around a bereaved family, or com-munities raise money to help a sick child. There are treasures in our people and our communities that we could never put a price on. Jesus talks today about hidden treasures and fine pearls, and prompts the question — what is most important to us, and what are we willing to sacrifice for it? Sometimes treasures like compassion and love are there for all to see , and other times they are hidden or buried and we to go in search of them, and to remember to bring them to others. The Kingdom of God is always close at hand and within each of us.
