Appalling behaviour in Farncombe Parish Church

Yesterday afternoon, I hopped on the bus Guildford to Godalming, only I made the mistake of hopping on a bus that goes all round the houses.

By Farncombe, I had had enough, I decided I would walk and alighted outside the Parish Church. Luckily I found the church was open, and I walked in.

I wandered around the church. Whilst I was looking at some books near the door a man walked in and politely asked was there please a toilet he could use.

No. This is a church not a public toilet. Go down the road and use the pub.

I was shocked and appalled at the way this man was treated. There was a toilet he could have used.

On reflection, I should have inteceded on his behalf, but I think I was too stunned to react.

Jesus divides the sheep from the goats. He asks why was he not given a drink when he was thirsty and asked. But you did not ask. I was the beggar.

Ironically outside the Church of John The Evangalist is a large sign saying Welcome. Clearly some are more welcome than others.

The very least this church can do is in their parish newsletter issue a public apology to this man.

A local lady kindly directed me to walk along a footpath running alongside the railway line. I eventually came out at the water meadows and crossed the bridge over the River Wey into Godalming.
