SIGNIFICANT TIME

Some times matter more than others. Some times are significant in our lives, in our families, at work, in our country, in our city.
I wonder if next week will be such a time for us as a church. I wonder if next week will be such a time for us as churches across the city. I am thinking it will.
Over the last few years churches in the deanery have been journeying together and God has been giving us a clear commission to focus our attention on making and growing disciples across our city and to make changes …

SEEING LIVES CHANGED

It was such an amazing day! As Dan, Sasha, Jason and Beth shared their stories with us and declared their faith in Jesus. Immersing them in the water we celebrated their new life in Christ and sang with the Angels. All of us were so moved by the stories they told which you can watch below. Loss, grief, challenge, pain – all of these have been transformed by the presence of Jesus and the reality of his life available to all. As Jason said, “Watch this space!”

THIS IS IT!

THIS IS IT! The story is reaching its climax. The music is swelling and the songs of SALVATION are filling the air. The servant King is coming to overthrow the prince of the world and to establish his kingdom in its place. The battle will be fierce. The blows will be great. The anger expressed will be violent. And Jesus will take it all, absorb it all, hold it all. By his stripes we are healed. This is our week. Celebration week. Freedom week. This is the week the Lord of the Dance breaks us free from the powers …

Lent – a time of transition

After his baptism, just as Jesus was about to set out on his ministry, the Spirit of God took him into the desert for a period of 40 days. During this time Jesus went without food and company. Embracing silence and solitude he pressed into the resources of his Father and found that God’s grace was made perfect in his weakness. Trained and equipped by God through this experience Jesus resisted the temptations of the devil and found himself totally reliant on the grace and love of his father.  All of us face periods of testing and each year Christians intentionally embrace …
