What does God think of You?

Let God speak to you through some trance music:

Baptism Sunday – 19th June

“We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. – Romans 6:4″

Baptism is a public declaration of faith and your commitment to Jesus Christ. It is a symbol of the beginning of a new life – the old life is left behind in the waters.

What a delight & privilege to baptise the lovey Emmanuelle & Rebecca!

Pioneer Prayer – Off for the Month of July

Pioneer Prayer will be back on in August

Greater Things

“Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.’”‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29:7‬ ‭NIVUK‬‬

By Stuart Hannah

A friend posted this photo recently. His church gathering to pray for their city. It got me thinking about the scripture above from Jeremiah.

Tuesday was the  last pioneer prayer meeting before we take a short break in July. Let’s continue to pray for our CITY – let’s pray in faith and expectation. God is not finished with us yet.

“Greater things have still to come, and greater things have still to be done in this CITY”
