“I have come to My garden, My sister, My spouse; I have gathered myrrh with My spice;

I have eaten My honeycomb with My honey; I have drunk My wine with My milk…

Eat, O friends! Drink, yes drink deeply, O beloved ones!” (Song 5:1)

Our dear Lord is singing here, rejoicing in His intimate time with us, His bride. Do you know, do you connect with this, that the Creator God is personally delighted when we take time to be closeted with him in shear mutual love?

We have entered a period of enforced separation from normal business. He’s waiting for each of us in this time. Be refreshed in the opportunity to choose His company, His feasting and recreation, His Book.

There is reason for concern for many things – and we will do what we can – but let’s embrace this one Good.

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” Then I said, “Ah, Lord GOD! Behold, I do not know how to speak, for I am only a youth.” But the LORD said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am only a youth’; for to all to whom I send you, you shall go, and whatever I command you, you shall speak.

(Jer 1:5-7)

 

The Lord knows each one of His children intimately and has a plan for each one of us.  Yes – that includes you, whether you are young or old, a world leader or a street sweeper, a preacher or a teacher.  What an honour and privilege to be part of His plan.

Welcome 1 March 2020

1 Peter 4:8-9:  Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. Show hospitality to one another without grumbling.

Peter emphasised that above ALL we must show love to one another. Let us show love and forgiveness in a troubled world through our actions. May we reflect Christlikeness in all our dealings with others, so that all the glory goes to our Lord Jesus Christ.

May you always feel warmth and love as we fellowship together at KBC.

Thank you Jesus for your wonderful example of love and forgiveness towards us, mere sinners.

As we are all one in Christ, let us remember the Lord’s Supper and His sacrifice on the cross which means so much for us.

Welcome 23 February 2020

We are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren, beloved by the Lord, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth . . . for the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the traditions which you were taught, whether by word or our epistle. 2 Thess 2:13-15

The world, our nation and our faith are all places of spiritual need – and the Church is the Lord’s provision for the needs. There is a battle raging, and lone Believers are not His plan – we all matter, and are hardened for battle or comforted and healed together!

Today our Annual General Meeting follows the service.

Do stay and gain insight into our vision and ministries, and feel free to ask questions or comment.

the wicked boasts of the desires of his soul, and the one greedy for gain curses and renounces the LORD. In the pride of his face the wicked does not seek Him; all his thoughts are, "There is no God." (Psalm 10:3-4, ESV)
I'm sure every one of us has heard that phrase. It used to be mumbled. But now this world is not ashamed of self-worship. It's no longer only "in his thoughts" but "there is no god" is shouted at us from all directions. 
This is our world, for now. And so psalms like this one will become more and more comforting with it's conclusion, "The LORD is king for ever and ever"
Don't give up! Though we're daily brainwashed to forget the Lord, Jesus Christ, He is and will continue to be King Forever. Hold Fast, brothers and sisters.

Welcome – 02 February 2020

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God's power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

(1Pe 1:3-5)

 

In a world full of hatred, anger, division and threat of war, we must not forget that we are born again, that we have hope! That hope is in Jesus Christ – and He is alive!  Come and be blessed by God’s Word today.

Welcome 19 January 2020

Through Him we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among the nations for His name..” Romans 1:5

One can argue that “apostleship” is a special calling to proclaim the gospel: but when you receive Christ, you also receive the commission to proclaim Him by your life and gifting – so you also receive apostleship. You make a difference in the Great War. Obedience to the faith among the nations is increased because of you: your confession, your prayer, your giving and encouraging and attendance and ministry..

And all of it in the context of the Body, the church. Welcome, celebrate and be encouraged in your apostleship today. If you’re not yet there – do talk with us!

Under the Mercy,

Claude

 

Welcome – 12 January 2020

This is the year of Re-Vision. 
Every time you see "2020" remember God's Vision for the church: 
To gather all things under One Head: Jesus Christ! Eph 1:10
Let's start well, and end stronger. It's a year of "Building Together", "Putting on the New Life", and "Redeeming the Time that's left", every day in every place so that, indeed, we bring everything under One Head, Jesus Christ.
How will you work towards this?
God will do it!

And his father and his mother marveled at what was said about him. And Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, “Behold, this child is appointed for the fall and rising of many in Israel …

(Luke 2:33-34a)

The Holy Spirit revealed to Simeon that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. On seeing the baby Jesus in the temple he exclaimed “your servant may now depart in peace”.

Has the Holy Spirit revealed to you that the baby is Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour? Of all the gifts we receive in our lives, the greatest is the free gift of God – eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
