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.
‘Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying
heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from
me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your
souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.’ Matthew 11:28-30 God does not seek to
place a heavy burden on us or want us to be carrying one.
If you feel you like have a heavy weight on your shoulders, on your heart,
bring it to God through Jesus. It might not be taken away overnight but the
burden comes lighter when shared. In context, after saying this Jesus went on to demonstrate that the layers of
rules and restrictions that the religious leaders of the day placed on people
were not what God intended. "Religion" should not be a heavy burden of do's and don'ts. Christianity is
about following a person, Jesus, not a rule book.
