Join us every 3rd Wednesday of the month for our Worship Night, 8-9.30pm. This is a time to really fix our eyes on the Lord through praise and worship. Everyone is welcome and if you play an instrument feel free to bring it along from 7pm to set up, ready to play at 8pm. Our usual songs with chords can be found here.
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
Join us on the first Wednesday of every month on zoom for our monthly Prayer Nights. This is a time for us to pray for each other, our community and for those God has put on our heart.
Every 2nd and 4th Saturday we have Youth Hub and as it has progressed, we have noticed little gems each one of our Youth Hub attendees comes out with. So we have decided to put into works a Youth Hub Podcast so watch this space! But in the meantime, we wanted to share how those in our Youth Hub keep their connections with the Lord, the habits that keep them close and on their discipleship journey. So as we close out Lent and look to celebrate and enjoy the Easter weekend, here… Read More
What habit(s) do you have to feel connected with Jesus? For Me, the most important habit that keeps me close to God is to spend the start and end of my day with him. Once I’m awake, I would put on my headphones and listen to soaking music for an hour or so and talk to God. Say good morning, ask The holy spirit to rest on me etc. I have noticed that I feel so much lighter in the morning and it’s only when you step out of your house, you… Read More
Last year a group of us had the pleasure of going to the New Wine Leadership Conference (blog post here) and though it had been every two years pre-Covid, they put antoher one up this year in Harrogate and we were lucky enough to go again! Jeorgina Soares, our Youth and Families Lead, talks about her experience, and why it’s been important for her to go twice in a row: I felt that God was telling me to stay still. That was the feeling I was having because last year when I… Read More
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
“And when you fast, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces that their fasting may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, that your fasting may not be seen by others but by your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.” Matthew 6:16-18 It is that time again when we are all full of yesterday’s pancakes, and we have finally gotten… Read More
“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. Whether it be financial stress, especially in this current climate. Or stress in the work place, where, though the pandemic taught many lessons about the importance of work-life balance, our culture is centred on working hard to… Read More
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 place. As a kid I was taught to give something up for Lent, I think at the time it was a challenge, one that I enjoyed succeeding in. Now, fully understanding the impact of the crucifixion and… Read More
