Welcome to St Andrew's, Cobham. We are Cobham’s parish church and our aim is to know Jesus, and to make him known. We offer a host of activities for adults and children. Please explore our website to find out more. We hope to see you soon.
Many great achievements have been celebrated, for the medal winners, and those with new "PBs", all the hard work was worth it. The suffering of hours and hours of training, whether in the gym, on water, on tracks or roads. Sometimes apparent failures result in learning and improvement though they were hard to take at the time.
So it is for many of us in our lives. We have challenges, setbacks and pain as well as the "yess!!" moments.
The Bible says: "though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honour when Jesus Christ is revealed." 1 Peter 1:6-7
Gold in this life is good for a while, but gold in the next is better.
