Travel Update

Bev shares an update on our current journey as a church, recognising that we are journeying without a known destination.  
The journey itself is the most important thing at this time – learning to walk with God at His pace.   Let’s allow God to shape us and show us what is yet to emerge.

June 19th
Dan Pooley

Morning Encouragement

Dan encourages us to be present in the journey – not to miss out on being with God and what part of what he is doing by either look back to what has been, or pulling ahead to an unknown destination.

June 15th
Ruth Clarke

Morning Encouragement

Ruth encourages us with some thoughts about being gently led by God to receive spiritual nourishment.
 
God invites us to a table to feast but there are different tables – are we at a banqueting table or a hectic picnic? God always makes nourishment available, let’s be ready to receive it where we’re at.

Nicky Porter

Morning Encouragement

Nicky continues our Journey of Discovery as we look at the journey of the Israelites into the Promised Land and the parallels we find in ourselves today. We have a shepherd who leads us and provides for us. Draw close and let Him provide.

Jim Clarke

Morning Encouragement

Jim encourages us to meditate on verses 5-7 from Psalm 84 this morning:

Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.
As they pass through the Valley of Baka,
they make it a place of springs;
the autumn rains also cover it with pools.
They go from strength to strength,
till each appears before God in Zion.

Journeying with God to a new land – The Wilderness

Jim encourages us to meditate on verses 5-7 from Psalm 84 this morning:

Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.
As they pass through the Valley of Baka,
they make it a place of springs;
the autumn rains also cover it with pools.
They go from strength to strength,
till each appears before God in Zion.

Emma Seebaran

Morning Encouragement

Emma encourages from Isaiah to enlarge the borders of our tent – expanding in character and enlarging our hearts to be filled with the love of God, the kind of love described in 1 Corinthians 13. This is a re-wilded heart, and how He wants our hearts to look – this expression of God’s love in us is what the world is looking for.

Thanksgiving – The Journey Ahead

May 6th
Dan Pooley

Morning Encouragement

As we focus on lament this month, along with leaving and cleaving, Dan asks us this morning, ‘what are we leaving and what are we holding on to?’

God invites us to cleave to Him. He is faithful to us and He is the one we can hold fast to because He holds fast to us.

Space & Time to Lament

Bev begins our new teaching focus on Lament & Leaving, focusing on ‘Space & Time to Lament’.

May 1st
Bev Webb

Saturday Encouragement

Bev introduces our teaching focus for May, ‘Lament & Leaving’. We’re giving time and space this month to reflect on our hearts and the journey we’re making; through the difficulties and losses of Covid and through leaving 286, our home of 10 years.

For many of us this is a season of lament, of leaving the past behind and facing a different, unfamiliar future. It’s also a time of restoration and an opportunity for our hearts to burn again with a passion for Jesus and His purposes as we seek a RE-WILDED HEART.

Psalm 51:10-12
Keep creating in me a clean heart.
Fill me with pure thoughts and holy desires, ready to please you.
May you never reject me!
May you never take from me your sacred Spirit!
Let my passion for life be restored,
tasting joy in every breakthrough you bring to me.
Hold me close to you with a willing spirit
that obeys whatever you say.

May 2nd
Ruth Clarke

Tuesday Encouragement

Sometimes we can be tired and stressed and far from feeling ‘alive in Christ’. In these hard times, God wants to draw us back to Him.

Spend some time reading through verses in the Bible which reveal who God is – pray that you’ll find new ways of seeing God and remember old ways.
