Psalm 1 gives a beautiful picture of a flourishing tree. A flourishing tree that is steadily supplied by a steady flow of pure refreshing water flowing from nearby streams of water. A tree that is healthy. A tree that is fruitful. A tree whose leaves do not wither.

Synergie Youth meet every Friday night (apart from when school on holiday) 7.30pm-9.15pm for those of high school age. Here’s a testimony below from one of Synergie’s members Kate L. Some more reports coming soon from Synergie in their newsletter next weekend!

“When I first came to Synergie I wasn’t the same person that I am today. I had no confidence, thought very lowly of myself and I didn’t have a strong relationship with Jesus, I really just needed somewhere that I enjoyed going to.”

The Vine Church in previous years

Check out some old photos of the church building…when it was just an empty shell.  Tim Thomson says:
“I wasn’t here when Jimi Dowds & the team first came to visit this derelict building, but looking at the state of it they must have had great faith. They were like Joshua & Caleb who saw past all the obstacles of giants & problems and pressed on to ‘take the land’.  It’s amazing to see what can be done with an empty shell of a building and God’s favour & steadfast vision.  There may be things we are going through that seem like this ruined building but with God..nothing is impossible.”

7 Words to Experiencing the Miraculous

Yet if you say so, I will

7 words to experiencing the miraculous

The fishing boats had been out all night long on the lake of Gennesaret. They had worked hard, gone without sleep, tried everything they knew, used their years of experience and knowledge and get not even one fish. After many hours of trying everything they knew, they persevered in the hope that surely they would catch something.

Pray each day in February for Afghanistan

May be an image of 2 people and child

Since the return of the Taliban to power in Afghanistan last year, it has never been more dangerous to be a secret Afghan believer – and our persecuted church family there are crying out for us to join them in prayer.
Each day throughout February we’ll be posting a prayer for Afghanistan to help you pray for our sisters and brothers there. It can be hard to know how to pray, but we serve a mighty God who hears our prayers and draws near in the darkness.
