Welcome 16 May 2021

But as for you, O man of
God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love,
steadfastness, gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the
eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good
confession in the presence of many witnesses.
Ti 6:11-12

Greetings fellow
saints.
  This Sunday we celebrate four
baptisms!
  What an honour and blessing to
be able to witness these Christians make the good confession.
  We, their brothers and sisters, need to encourage
them a
s they begin the good fight, to flee sin, to pursue righteousness,
godliness, faith, love, steadfastness and gentleness.
  Not only that, but we should also use this
blessed occasion as a reminder to ourselves to do the same!

 

Blessings,

Mark

Welcome – 9 May 2021

Welcome to another Celebration of Jesus Christ!

I was thrilled to hear last week that the Sunday service went so well, Most of the usual actors were out of action for some reason, but that didn't hinder the Corporate Worship. It is so satisfying to see God supply all that we need, and most typically, in people! This is also humbling because no person is sufficient, neither indispensable. But God has given us One Another.

"the whole body makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love" (Eph 4:16)

The Church is the Fullness of Christ who fills all things in every way. Let's be the Church!

Welcome 3 May 2021

"… it is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be at all ashamed, but that with full courage now as always Christ will be honored in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain" – Phillipians 1:20-21

Greetings Church Family
In describing his ambition in life, Paul
captures for us, what for him is the defining essence of worship. 
His passion
is that whatever he does with his body, whether in life or death, will always
be worship towards Jesus Christ. 
Paul’s
point is that for you and I, as Christians, our lives, and even our deaths, are
an act of worship when the greatest gain
, is found in exalting Christ. Here are some wise words from John Piper – “The
authenticating inner essence of worship is being satisfied with Christ, prizing
Christ, cherishing Christ, treasuring Christ . . . it encompasses all of life that
flows from the heart.”

 
In Christ Alone,

Matthew
