Children’s Prayer day for the Nation.

Sunday 21st March
We’d love you to join us for a Children’s Day Of Prayer For The Nations. Actually it’s not just for children, we’d love families, children’s groups or church gatherings to join in too.
Resources and Videos available at the Children Changing Nations site.

We intend to live stream some worship, teaching and prayer via Facebook live from 10am every Sunday morning. This approach will allow you to interact at appropriate times, such as when we pray.

May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had,  so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 15:3-6)

Parenting for Faith Course

Tuesday 2nd March @ 8pm for 8 weekly sessions.

Want to help the kids you love find God in everyday life?

The free Parenting for faith course is for you! It’s not just mums and dads who long for children and teens to know God for themselves. Whether you’re a parent, carer, grandparent, family member, friend or church worker or leader, you can help the children in your life develop a vibrant and connected relationship with God – whatever their age!

I’m really exciting to let you know that we are starting a free zoom Parenting for Faith course on Tuesday 2nd March at 8pm.  Over recent years I have heard amazing things about this course.  Rachel Turner who has spoken at various So What? events and also at our church leads this course, she is always inspirational and very down to earth.  It feels like she understands all that you are going through as someone who desire for children to know and walk with Jesus.
Lynda (Assistant Pastor Children)

All are welcome!  Please contact the Church office or Lynda to register.


“What about you?” Jesus asked,
“Who do you say I am?”

At this time, more than ever in history, we are surrounded by other people’s words, opinions, ideas, advice etc. With all this available to us at the click of a button it would be easy to find ourselves answering the question that Jesus asked his disciples one day, ‘who do people say I am?’, the way his disciples did, by telling Jesus what they had heard.

Jesus immediately asks what was for the disciples a far more important question in that moment – ‘What about you?’ Jesus asks, ‘who do you say I am?’ It seems that in this moment Jesus wasn’t interested in what others may say about him – he wanted to know what his disciples thought, because that was what would make the difference for them, particularly with the road that lay ahead of them, and the part that they would have in his ongoing mission.

As good and as helpful as other people’s opinions about Jesus can be, Jesus wants to know what you think and believe about him – because this is what makes all the difference in our lives. So in the coming weeks, as we journey towards Resurrection Sunday, we are going to follow the life of Jesus through the Gospels, from his birth to his ascension (and beyond). As you read, do so with the question that Jesus asked his disciples that day prayerfully in mind – ‘What about you?’, Jesus asked ‘who do you say I am?’

Take your time: Pause, pray and meditate on the answer to the question in the passage …. Don’t rush on.
Write it down: Spend a few moments journaling what comes to you as you read the passage and answer the question.
Chew it over: Discuss it with others, use the WhatsApp group, join in Word on Wednesday or give someone a call.

Word on a Wednesday:

Each week we record a longer, more in depth talk which follows the reading programme. These are available from the church’s  YouTube channel
We gather on Zoom Wednesday’s at 7.30pm to consider the related questions and pray together.

CLICK HERE to see the latest word on Wednesday’s.
We encourage you to arrange your own Bible study groups throughout the week to discuss these videos.

Please contact the Church office for details of how to connect to our Zoom gatherings.


As one of the churches in our city we are praying this blessing of God’s hope, joy and peace for you and your household.
If there is anything specific you would like us to pray for then please let us know through our website, by email, or by leaving a message on 01872 241984 and we will pray.

You don’t have to leave names or contact details if you would rather stay anonymous, we can still pray.

Following Jesus into a corridor isn't much fun at times, help seems distant, so it's faith that gets us through to the next adventure

The song comes to mind: Step by step we're moving forward. Little by little we're gaining ground. Every prayer a powerful weapon. Walls come tumbling down Amen

Good morning from sunny Shetland! 😎 We’re here for a while today after all, and on worship team duty next Sunday instead. Hope you’ve had a good week, L & D 😊

“It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.” - Gandalf

Good morning everyone, Oh great I can hear you now🙂

Greetings....from this bivocational pastor prepping for our Gathering in Michigan this morning!

Morning from Bryan and Mary in the Forest of Dean. 😎 It took awhile for your voice to carry this far.

Hi jens new phone.lovely to see Danny's is great

They all had their shaky moments, mistakes and wrong turns. Yet in this chapter they were commended and honoured for their faith. They all had their 'As Far As' moment.

Regardless of the outcome, God is really pleased when we step forward in faith. We are putting our faith on the line. verse 6

We need Faith to take hold of the 'As Far As'. Because Faith, by its nature, will always explore the more of God and His purposes for us.

We only want to go where He is leading us.

FAITH v 1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for. Hebrews 11

The writer goes on to say at the beginning of chapter 12 that they are like a great cloud of witnesses cheering us on.

Let go my soul and trust is Him. Trust in him.

Bibles at the ready! Hebrews 11. Talking about Faith today, we are expectant that the Lord is going to meet with us today.

builds an expectation to grow beyond the point that we currently are at.

At this point what was needed is Faith.

Powerhouse starts next Sunday, we are so excited! Let's pray for the children this week as they get ready to come back.

We pray that there will be a binding and breaking of fear over you now, in the name of Jesus. Come Holy Spirit.

Give us a vision for the 'As Far As' that you have for us.

We pray for those who have gone so far BUT not as far as allowing Jesus to be centre of their lives. We pray that they take that step today

What he is saying is the hallway is a hard place. It's the in between place, the interconnecting place, you have left one room and you are on the way to another but you have yet to arrive!

Tomorrow (Monday) we are not gathering to pray, we are praying on Tuesday at 7am instead on zoom.

I really believe that was a stonking word from God for us today - we MUST NOT let this go. Not allow fear to debilitate us, but TRUST Him who is more than able!!
