Praying to start 2015

For the month of January the elders believe that is it right we use Sunday evenings as times of prayer. We want to seek God at the start of the new year; for him to bless, provide for, protect and guide us all both individually and as a church as we worship and live for him in 2015. We will meet in the church building at 6:00pm each Sunday evening in January for about an hour or so. Please try and set aside this time so we can join together to make a difference!

Faith

Hi folks

I liked this quote from Oswald Chambers about what faith is:

“Faith is deliberate confidence in the character of God whose ways you might not understand at the time”

I like the “deliberate” part.

New Year’s Resolution

Hi folks

I want to encourage you to make an early New years resolution for 2015. Lets make it a year where we really draw close to God! With this in mind I want to recommend a daily devotional that you can buy for yourself or others for Christmas. The author, Paul David Tripp, is excellent and this will help get 2015 off to a great start.

You can get it here at a discount: http://www.10ofthose.com/products/16622/New-Morning-Mercies/

Ever met an angel?

Hi all,

 

Maturity for a Christian involves the two loves from the two greatest commandments, love God and love your neighbour. I have been reflecting on how do this and at the same time obey the great commission of reaching out with the gospel to our neighbours (anyone we come across).

Hebrews 13v2 tells us “Do not neglect to show hospitality”. I think this is something easy to neglect which is tragic as it enables us to show our love for God, in loving others and providing a natural environment to talk about our faith.

Lets all calm down!

Hi folks,Just a reminder from Sunday morning when we were looking at being quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to anger.I suggested that if you particularly struggle in this area a good idea is to keep a journal that you can write in when you over heat! Something like this:

 

1. What was the trigger? For example, the kids spilt milk on the carpet.

2. How did I respond? For example, I shouted and slammed doors, and I felt really unappreciated.

3. What did I want? For example, my children to not make a mess and to . . . → Read More: Lets all calm down!

The Marriage Course

starting on Sunday 5th October at 6pm in the church building

 

What is The Marriage Course?

A seven session course set in a fantastic atmosphere. You will be served with a coffee, tea and dessert at a romantic table for two while listening to practical talks that are informative and fun. Then you’ll be given the time to talk on your own as a couple. Through your private discussions as a couple around specific topics, you will discover new things about your partner and grow in your understanding of each other. There is never any group work and . . . → Read More: The Marriage Course
