God's love is without limits

In this Sunday's Gospel, we are reminded that God's chosen people were not chosen just to enjoy God's love for themselves.  They were called to be the starting point from which God's love would spread to all people.  God loves each one of us equally and unconditionally.  His love for us in unlimited and God is forever searching out people to whom He can show His love.  If we are willing to turn to God, to accept and experience His love, the happier we become.

Fizz Free February

Fizz Free February is coming to Dudley for the first time, will you be making the pledge to #gofizzfree?

Could you and your family give up fizzy drinks for February?

Taking part in Fizz Free February is a great way to reduce your sugar intake by cutting out fizzy drinks. It can also help you on your way to drinking fewer sugary drinks for the rest of the year.
Three great reasons to go Fizz Free
  • you can save £438 a year if you stop drinking one bottle of soft drink, per day, for a year
  • drinking just one 330ml can of fizzy drink a day could add up to over a stone weight gain per year
  • Make your pledge by tweeting @dudleymbc or @LetsgethealthyD using #gofizzfree or sign up at
