Stories Of Hope
Oh give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; for His steadfast love endures forever! 1 Chronicles 16:34 As a church, we had a great Easter weekend! We engaged with so many people through working with Christ Church and having our Easter Egg Hunts across the estate. Our Sunday Celebration was a wonderful mix of prayer and worship, a community meal and cardboard testimonies, or #storiesofhope, that showcased what Jesus had done in everyone’s lives.

With the global pandemic and sharp recession, the scientists, the governments, the economists, the medics, the experts, no-one knows how this will end or… Read More
Independent Woman? Part 1.
We are pretty obsessed with being independent. I grew up throwing my hands in the air to Destiny’s Child, ‘Independent Women’. We are encouraged to be independent as we grow as young people, independent of our homes, to be emotionally independent in our relationships, (co-dependency is not healthy), to be financially independent, buy and own our own stuff, and even as organisations to be financially independent is highly prized. Reliant on no-one so we can command our own destiny. This isn’t all bad. Yet in my life as a Christian I have… Read More
What we all need. Everyday.
Hope does not immediately change the situation, but hope does immediately change us in that situation. That is why encouragement is one of the greatest gifts we can give each other.
