Rewilding The Church Pt 6

In this series we have explored many different aspects as to how we need to free ourselves and the church to give room to what God is calling us to do: What rewilding the church means Putting our faith in Him and listen to what He is telling us to do Simplicity of our faith and discipleship Reaching out to those who feel they don’t fit in to church How we need to come together as brother and sisters to accomplish through Him The last piece of the puzzle is Hope.

Rewilding The Church Pt 5

“The strength of this vital defensive construction required wholehearted commitment to the same shared vision; structural integrity was the result of human connection.” Steve Aisthorpe, Rewilding Church, reviewing Nehemiah 3 Last week was all about looking for those in your circle who are missing from church; those who feel like they don’t fit in or who aren’t accepting of every part of the Christian narrative. This week we’re looking at how connections with our brothers and sisters help us see great things through Him. As we have explored previously in this series,… Read More

Rewilding The Church Pt 4

β€œIf a man has a hundred sheep and one of them wanders away, what will he do? Won’t he leave the ninety-nine others on the hills and go out to search for the one that is lost? And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he will rejoice over it more than over the ninety-nine that didn’t wander away! In the same way, it is not my heavenly Father’s will that even one of these little ones should perish. Matthew 18:12-14 I have always been a Christian. I was baptised… Read More

Rewilding The Church Pt 3

“Don’t load yourselves up with equipment. Keep it simple: you are the equipment.” Luke 9:3 There should be a simplicity in discipleship.

We tend to focus on the wrong things, get distracted easily or overwhelmed by needing to know the answers, while in the middle of a process. But that isn’t how this works. We are simply called to follow Him, to join in with what He is doing and trust that no matter how we feel,… Read More

Rewilding The Church Pt 2

‘Proof is easy, faith is hard…work.’ Code Black I watched an episode of Code Black (an American hospital drama where destruction and despair hit every few minutes) last week and the above line really stuck with me and made me think of our 6 week journey and Rewilding The Church. As Steve Aisthorpe says, it is really hard to follow someone you can’t see, or even believe in something that isn’t tangible, but that is the role of a disciple. We are called to follow Him, to put our trust in Him…. Read More

Rewilding The Church Pt 1

“I will put in the desert the cedar and the acacia, the myrtle and the olive. I will set junipers in the wasteland, the fir and the cypress together, so that people may see and know, may consider and understand, that the hand of the Lord has done this, that the Holy One of Israel has created it.” Isaiah 41:19-20 Following on from last weeks blog, we thought it’d be great to share the inspiration for the 6 weeks journey of listening we have started. Sam is currently reading Rewilding The Church by Steve Aisthorpe, and has been sharing his… Read More
