A Hard Reset

Hard Reset

I don’t know about anyone else but I feel like this year has kicked my butt a little bit and I’m in need of a hard reset. Yes the pandemic and the lockdowns were hard, no disputing that, but for me personally, juggling two jobs, a toddler and general life has taken quite a lot to get used to. Plus getting back to socialising; getting back on the bandwagon of going out and making sure to keep in touch with people, not just digitally but also in real life. Come the summer… Read More


At our staff meetings on a Tuesday, we always kick off with a prayer and then go on to talk about encouragements from the previous weeks before going into business. I know what you’re thinking, there was already a blog about encouragement recently. And you’d be right. There was, just after Easter, because we had a great couple of weeks as a church family. So then, how does this blog differ I hear you ask? Well, this is all about my personal encouragement from the last week. Indulge me this once, as… Read More


I feel like Easter is always the best event in a church sense. I find this time of year so encouraging; the sun starts to come out (or this year it’s at least teased us), egg hunts bring the community together and as disciples, we are reminded of the promise His death and resurrection means to us. It is a time to know we are loved, forgiven and supported. So I find it such a time of encouragement. Egg Hunts Firstly, we had a weekend of Easter Egg hunts which was truly… Read More

Habits x Joe & Hayley

Since being baptised, God has put it into our hearts to seek Him with as much passion and zeal as we can muster, we want to be able to move mountains with our faith, we want God to fully open our eyes. “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭7‬:‭7‬-‭8 Abraham was justified and righteous… Read More

Our First Baptism Of 2023!

Jesus said, ‘…I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.’  John 10.10 Last weekend we had the pleasure of having a Sunday Celebration focused around baptism. We had two members of our church family get baptised, Joe & Hayley. We also had a family who had expressed wanting to baptise their son a few years ago, but for whatever reason, didn’t go ahead with it at the time. Then last week when they heard we were having a Baptism Celebration, not only did they want their son to be… Read More

A Huge Thank You…

Finally, the last week of January is here and we made it! Payday is in sight! But as a true digital native, I want to take this opportunity to have a little #throwbackthursday moment and reflect on our Christmas period. I don’t know if anyone else felt it, but because it was our first Christmas season out of lockdown, I had forgotten how hectic it gets with meet ups and parties. But in the midst of all the fun and frivolity, we had some really beautiful moments that built on Christmases past…. Read More

Making Room For The Marginalised

It’s the last week of Advent and Christmas is just 4 sleeps away! This week’s devotional scripture is: And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the… Read More

Making Room For Community

We’re in the 3rd week of Advent and as we continue with our devotional we are looking at another verse from Luke: When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. In a loud voice she exclaimed: “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear! But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. Blessed is she… Read More

Making Room For Limits

We’re continuing with our Advent devotional and this week we are focusing on the passage from Luke: “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?” The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be unable to conceive is in her sixth month. For no word from God… Read More

Making Room For a Promise

This week we are looking at the first devotional of Making Room In Advent. It talks about the parallels between ‘Zechariah waiting to have a child. Israel waiting for the Messiah. A barren couple and a barren nation.’ How often do we have to wait for what we think has been promised to us? How long will we have to wait for His second coming? But perhaps those are the wrong questions. Perhaps the right question to ask is, what does God need me to learn and/or who does God need me… Read More
