Habits x Youth Hub

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

Habits x Emmanuel

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

Habits x NWLC23

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

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

Lent: A Time For Habits…

“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

A Time For Reflection…

“Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” Matthew 4:4 Most people love to get involved with Pancake day, because, lets face it, who doesn’t love a pancake, be it sweet or savoury. But what a lot of people don’t know is where this tradition stems from. Pancake day, or Shrove Tuesday, is the day before Ash Wednesday and therefore the beginning of Lent, which is sometimes referred to as “Shrovetide”. Observance of Shrove Tuesday can be traced… Read More

Pancakes anyone? Lent – an invitation to the journey

Lent officially starts this Wednesday. Did you know? Maybe you’re taking it as a convenient opportunity to diet or exercise…or maybe you’re a bit more traditional and you’ve been eating pancakes tonight then will be smearing ash on your forehead on Wednesday….but what is this season all about? Lent is a 40-day season of reflection and preparation for remembering and celebrating the death and resurrection of Jesus. It is a time of repentance, of considering Christ’s sufferings and rethinking how we are called to take up our own crosses. Some of us… Read More
