Christmas can be such a hectic season with so many extra things added on top of already busy lives, which is why Richard's message on Sunday about pausing in the midst of distraction was so timely.
The message on Sunday looked at the expectations we have of Jesus and how when he came to Earth, he showed us that he usually doesn't do what we expect.
We kicked off a festive theme called Joy To The World and looked at the line from that song which says, Let Every Heart Prepare Him Room. How do we make space for the Saviour in our hearts?
We have spent the last few weeks looking at some pretty big topics: Un-forgiveness, Bitterness, Fear & Disappointment. What takes the place of those things? What does a changed life look like? By God's grace and the tools of Humility, Community and Time we are being changed to be more like Jesus. Debbie also shares a beautiful testimony of God's gracious work in her life.
Carrying on with our current theme, Stand Up To Cancer, Elaine shared yesterday on the topic of Disappointment. It was a powerful time and if you missed it - have a listen!
Carrying on with our current theme where we are looking at the cancers of our souls, this week addressing the issues of fear. Looking at Fear in a practical and informative way as we all learn to Diagnose and Deal with the cancers of our souls.
Carrying on with the theme 'Stand Up to Cancer', this week we look at the cancer of bitterness.
We are hitting some big topics head on at the moment as we Diagnose It & Deal With It.
Stand Up To Cancer. We are looking at the cancers in our heart and soul, things like Unforgiveness, Bitterness, Fear and Disappointment. We are really excited about this practical series and we are expectant that God will heal hearts and change lives.
Concluding the mini series of Connecting.Contributing.Commissioning. These three aspects are part of our growing in faith. Recognising God has connected us one to another; Recognising we have something to give and Recognising we have a mission to fulfil are all crucial parts of a life of faith.
Looking at Luke 14.16-25, exploring the cultural implications at the time and what that means for us today.
"God is consistent in who he is and surprising in what he does."
"We usually seek God to do a work for us (job, relationships, health, finances, etc) but he usually wants to do a work in us."
