Sunday Evening Prayer Meetings

Our Sunday evening prayer meetings have restarted – we meet most Sundays at 6pm in the church building to seek God in prayer – praising him and pleading for him to save people and change situations, in our lives or across the other side of the world.

We next meet on Sunday 1st November – hopefully we will see you there and enjoy meeting with our Father together!

N.B. If there is a Family Service and Church Lunch in the morning, then usually there won’t be this prayer meeting in the evening – check our calendar to confirm whether there . . . → Read More: Sunday Evening Prayer Meetings

Clocks go back! (Saturday 24th October 2015)

Remember that the clocks go back one hour on Saturday night for the end of British Summer Time.

Be sure to change your clocks before you go to be so that don’t get to church too early – on the other hand though if you do come early you could join the 9:00am prayer meeting before the main service!

Family Service & Church Lunch (Sunday 25th April 2015)

Just a quick reminder that this Sunday at 10:30am in the church building we have a Family Service (where the primary school aged children join us for the whole service), and then afterwards (about 12:00pm onward) we are having a bring and share church lunch.

This is a great time to get to know one another over some a fabulous selection of food. Please stay if you can, and if you are able to please bring some food to share. All are welcome if you have friends you would like to invite to the service, lunch or both!

Church Picnic (Sunday 26th April 2015)

Weather permitting we will be having a Church Picnic after the family service next Sunday morning, in Bradgate Park, starting at approximately 1pm. Please bring your own food along with chairs/rugs. Meet us on the open grass area before the ruins, a little way into the park from the Newtown Linford car park (please note there is a parking charge). People will most likely spend the afternoon in the park also if the weather is good. If you need a lift please ask and we will do our best to arrange you one.

For directions to the car park please . . . → Read More: Church Picnic (Sunday 26th April 2015)

Quick fix

Hi all,

I was thinking this morning about how we usually want quick fixes in life. I’m definitely a culprit as someone who sometimes gets frustrated that the microwave is taking too long! When it comes to controlling my weight I would definitely prefer a magic diet pill than the much harder alternatives! The result in life though is usually the opposite of lasting change and growth.

I was doing a Bible study this morning on our role and God’s role in producing lasting change in our lives. Here is the highlights:

Eternally safe and secure

Hi folks,

I have been struck reading the gospel of John recently and how Jesus did not die prematurely. It has a lot to say about how God keeps Christians so that not one will be lost.

In chapter 7v1, it says that Jesus didn’t go about in Judea because the Jews were trying to kill him. In v30 it says no one could lay a hand on Him because his ‘hour had not yet come’. So Jesus was kept safe because He was wise about how he lived and where He went. He was also kept safe because the . . . → Read More: Eternally safe and secure

The Call

Hi folks

I’ve been reminded from Micah this morning that at the heart of what it means to live the Christian life is love:

“He has showed you, O people, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God” (Micah 6v8).

If I am honest I don’t always act justly, or love mercy when it comes to my ‘neighbour’. And of course that’s a symptom of not walking humbly with my God.

I’m praying for all of us that we would be deeply affected . . . → Read More: The Call

Inspiration!

Hi all Inspiring quote from the famous missionary David Livingstone: “I place no value on anything I have or may possess, except in relation to the kingdom of God. If anything will advance the interests of the kingdom, it shall be given away or kept, only as by giving or keeping it I shall most promote the glory of Him to whom I owe all my hopes in time or eternity.” What a heart for God!

Crucial Focus

Hi folks

As I said on Sunday I believe the scripture the Lord is speaking to us for this year is Acts 26v17b-18:

“…I am sending you to open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.”

This is very exciting because it means we will grow this year. Reaching out to people is a great catalyst for growth as it causes us to:
