Important Information for Launch Day (This Sunday!)

Ahead of our Launch Sunday service this week, I just wanted to remind you of a couple of important things…

Midweek Musings – Getting Back to ‘Normal’

Now there are people to see, families to visit, holidays to arrange. Life to live. We might not be back to fully ‘normal’; but it’s in sight…

The Return of the Church – Resisting Frustration

You start doing something significant. You know it will make a difference and then it begins. It might start with small bugging frustrations but they all pile up until it would be easy to walk away.

How do you keep going?

Ezra 4-6 is a long story of a community finding a way to manage the oppositions, hold ups and snags along the way.

Midweek Musings – Nostalgia ain’t what it used to be

How do you celebrate the past without making it into something it never was? How do you talk about the past that was good without giving the impression that nothing can ever match it in the present or the future?

The Return of the Church – Restarting Worship Together

In the wake of a political miracle, Israel arrived back in their land. There was so much to do: houses to build, a temple to rebuild, a city to renovate, food to be grown and borders to protect.

But first they worshipped.

They knew that regular worship would define them, shape them, remind them of their identity. It still does.

It might not be a perfect experience, but it is the most important thing that the returning church must do.

Midweek Musings – Why this man matters to me but not to you

I have never met him. I couldn’t. But there something about this small, bow-legged, hard-working character that I carry in me…

The Return of the Church – Restarting a Story Together

The book of Ezra is the account of the regathering of God’s people. God had never given up on them even when they were invisible to the rest of the world. But the day came when they became visible again.In doing so they began to rediscover what it meant to be God’s people.

The lessons are as relevant as ever – especially to us in a new building.

Kids Resources for Onsite and Online Church

For those not able to meet in the building just yet, please feel free to print off any of the activities we’ll be doing onsite and complete them at home, then bring them along to church when you can

Midweek Musings – Why I Always Lose At Cards

Growing up in the Salvation Army gave me lots of things, but it never helped me to play cards. I think they thought that you would start with solitaire and before you knew it you would have lost your house betting on a five card stud. (See: those last three words run together well, but I have no idea if they actually mean anything.)

Making Sense – What Could The Future Be?

Every morning we wake up and enter a future that we have not yet encountered. This future will be shaped in part by all the decisions we have taken up to this point, but as followers of Jesus, it will also be shaped by the way we see our lives joining in with God’s Big Story…

Midweek Musings – What Time Is It?

Some days, time seems to fly and life can feel short. Don’t let it all drift away from you. Know the time and how you will live your life in such a way that brings glory to God.

Making Sense – What Time Is It?

As the ancient sage said: there’s a time for everything… including change.

But how do we know what time it is for us? What is it too late for? What is it just the right time for?

When thinking about change, being able to tell the time makes all the difference.

We're on the move!
