What Are You Thankful For?

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Thanksgiving is most definitely an American holiday but I’ve always loved the idea of having a day to focus on the positive things in our lives. The blessings that the Lord has afforded… Read More

Every Little Helps

In last week’s blog, we looked at how we can turn to God in our stressful times, especially in this financial and political climate. However, though we know and appreciate the power of prayer, sometimes, we need actual, physical help. Whether that be to access resources or ways to entertain our kids in the holidays… Read More

Peace Be With You…

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus”. Philippians 4:6-7, (ESV) Stress. It is something that is guaranteed in this life….

What’s all The Fuss About Halloween?

As an Afro-Caribbean woman, Halloween was never something I was really allowed to participate in growing up. We would always have an ample supply of sweets in our house to hand out to the trick or treaters, but we were never ones to dress up, go trick or treating or carve pumpkins ourselves. As I… Read More

Why Do Christians Fast?

We are coming to the end of the month, one where with Stoptober, people are focusing on quitting smoking. The idea of quitting or giving something up got me thinking about the mindset Christians (and those of other faiths too) have to be in, to fast and why fasting became a thing in the first… Read More

God’s Steadfast Love

Last Sunday we read the last part of Mark in the devotional we have been reading since the start of this term. We focused on Mark 15:1-33 and when reading through, I found it quite powerful. In this part of Mark, we realise how fickle people can be; those who once broke bread with Jesus,… Read More

Is Black History Month Still Relevant Today?

October is Black History Month in the UK – a whole month dedicated to celebrating the rich history and cultures enjoyed by the Afro-Caribbean diaspora in Britain. In the UK where Black citizens are a minority, it’s important to bring to the forefront the valuable contributions of Black figures throughout history. For some, it isn’t… Read More

Vision Sunday

At our last Sunday Celebration, we had time for what we call Vision Sunday; time to talk about the vision God has given us as a church and to pray for the things we feel He has called us to work on in the coming months. The key two things we have felt Him saying… Read More

New Team, Who This?

The start of this term has been an exciting one for us! We have almost doubled our staff team and together we have a plethora of different skills to bring to the table. This week we had a great time as a core team spending some time together to bond and strategise about how we… Read More

Is That Really You God?

See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ. Colossians 2:8 In our last blog, I explored Listening Prayer and mentioned that when I got through the Loren Cunningham book, I would share… Read More

A Tribute To Queen Elizabeth II

Following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II we wanted to add our tribute to the incredible life of service and faith that she lived. As we gave her our thanks earlier this year during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, we turn our thanks to God for the gift of such a gracious monarch and… Read More

What Is God Telling You?

“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you” James 1:5 Last week during our staff meeting, we were praying together but as part of that prayer time, Sam asked that we take 10 minutes to listen to what… Read More

New Year, New Term, Same Us

As we are shaking off that summer feeling of late nights and lazy days away (or hectic ones depending on your lifestyle and preferences), getting ready to go back to work and/or school, we want to solidify the themes we left off from before the summer holidays, to help keep ourselves and each other accountable… Read More

God Comes Where He Is Wanted

August has begun. This month we take time to push into our habit of resting, slowing down, and listening to God. At our recent vision celebration, we remembered all God has done this year and shared the sense that September will be the start of a shift in gear for us as a church family…. Read More
