Kicking off a new series called FAITH.HOPE.LOVE. we started looking at FAITH and what it is. We asked the question of whether faith is supposed to be blind or is there something more to it.
Yesterday was an ALL IN Meeting where we were able to pray for all the children and young people heading back to school and also pray for anyone involved in education. (FYI: just over 30% of our congregation works in the education sector!) We looked at how There's Always Someone Bigger nb This also includes the prayer times and communion.
In the last of our Summer Soundtrack series, based on Ed Sheeran's song 'The Best Part of Me is You' Sam Huggill explores and shares powerfully on the significance of our identity in Jesus.
In the next instalment of our Summer Soundtrack series Elaine references music by Stormzy to challenge us about words - The Word of God and The Words We Speak Over Others.
It was a great privilege to have Christopher Baker with us sharing the next instalment of our current theme - Summer Soundtrack. He used a song from the film Aladdin and spoke how we must be those who speak up and speak out!
GET BACK UP AGAIN! This song will hopefully inspire and remind you that you can develop a resilience in life to GET BACK UP! Remember, God MAKES the day and I MAKE a choice. There are things in my control and things out of my control.
What an amazing morning with our RockStars around theme of What do you believe. They did the music, shared the word, provided handouts and led the entire morning!
Guest speakers, Alan and Betty Scotland were with us yesterday morning. Betty shared a brief word of encouragement and Alan followed with the message on The Presence, Provision and Power of our Hospitable Father.
Richard wraps up our series on Ephesians with a message entitled Standing Together where he looks at how we fight for one another.
This week we look at the cultural challenges facing the next generation. As a body, we need to be aware and be a voice for those who are following behind us - we all have a voice and we all have influence. We are all Bound Together. (I realise this message is a bit longer than normal and I appreciate your understanding as it was an important topic that we must be aware of. Hopefully, this information will increase our awareness and determine our actions. Joel)
