Welcome – 26 September 2021

For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was sapped as in the heat of summer. 
Selah

Then I acknowledged my sin to you and did not cover up my iniquity. I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the LORD"– and you forgave the guilt of my sin. 

Selah 
(Psalm 32:4-5)
God is faithful to press his heavy hand on us when we harbour any sin. Such a loving Father, who disciplines his children for their benefit! And His intention is clear: to Forgive our Guilt. This is the incredible Grace of God in Jesus. The absolute removal of our debt, by the Eternal payment of Jesus at His crucifixion.
Let's not take lightly the "kind" suffering of God's heavy hand, nor God's faithful determination to free us from sin, nor Christ's full and final payment

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.
Hebrews 10:23‭-‬25
Welcome Church Family
It has been a great encouragement to witness the dedication of this body to corporate worship. The commited gathering of the saints during these times is evidence of Spirit filled lives. For this we should all be thankful that the Lord continues to have his way in our hearts. We are to be grateful as He draws us together in one body, through His Spirit, under the headship of Christ, for the purpose of His Glory and eternal kingdom. How blessed we are through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
in Christ alone

Welcome 5 September 2021

… the church, of which I
became a minister according to the stewardship from God that was given to me
for you, to make the word of God fully known, the mystery hidden for ages and
generations but now revealed to his saints. To them God chose to make known how
great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is
Christ in you, the hope of glory. Him we proclaim, warning everyone and
teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in
Christ. For this I toil, struggling with all his energy that he powerfully
works within me.

Col 1:24-29

 

 

Greetings fellow saints. 
Join us today as we delve deeper into God’s Word and toil to make God’s
word fully known, to this generation and for the ones to come.

Blessings,

Mark

Welcome – 29 August 2021

The LORD is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him
The LORD is the strength of his people; 
he is the saving refuge of his anointed.. Psalm 28:7-8

Unprecedented strain is upon the world that some even expect we are on the verge of "end-times tribulation". Burdens seem to be increasing faster than the efforts of relief – wars, pandemic, weather and evil. For the Christian, though, there remains a deep stillness through it all. Our strength, protection, help, joy and refuge is not found in anything from this crumbling creation – but in the Creator.

We are "the anointed" people of God – He has set His affections on us, and determined to deliver us to Himself. Keep your eyes on the LORD!

Welcome 19 August 2021

"Now we who are strong ought to bear the weaknesses of those without strength and not just please ourselves. Each of us is to please his neighbor for his good, to his edification. For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, "THE REPROACHES OF THOSE WHO REPROACHED YOU FELL ON ME." For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. Now may the God who gives perseverance and encouragement, grant you to be of the same mind with one another according to Christ Jesus, so that with one accord you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, accept one another, just as Christ also accepted us to the glory of God". – Romans 15:1-7

Dearest Church Family
Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour, is our perfect example of how we should strengthen others and live to the Glory of God. We are blessed even further by having the scriptures instructing and encouraging us to live a life pleasing to God. Paul urges us all to pursue unity. With one mind, with one voice, the purpose of unity is to Glorify God and Him alone. By faith in Jesus Christ and all that He has done for us through His life, death and resurrection, our unity with Him; let us sing Glory to our God, in unity.
In Christ Alone
Matthew
