God is weaving a masterpiece and we are all a strand within it. Our theme for Prayer and Self-Denial 2020 has been derived from the well-known metaphor of a beautifully woven tapestry. Throughout the appeal we have likened the top side of the tapestry to the Kingdom of God, with the bottom side symbolising the messiness of life.
Our Tranzsend people are serving in some very messy places yet, with God’s guidance and prompting, we are making the Kingdom of God known in the places we are serving.
1) Woven Together, Whiriwhiria te tangata (weaving the people). This theme celebrates the relationships we are a part of, as well as the uniqueness of God’s people. We all play a part in the masterpiece.
2) Mending the Mess, E renarenatia ana te miro mā, te miro pango, te miro whero e te karaiti ihu (All threads are tied together by Jesus). This theme challenges believers to trust in God through the mess. Only Jesus has sufficient love and grace to forgive and resolve wrongs that have come about from sin.
3) The Perfect Picture, Te tui raumata o te rungarawa (the tapestry of God). Though we will not see the completed masterpiece until Christ returns, there are times God gives us glimpses of His Kingdom here on earth. Each glimpse reveals to us more of His character and His heart for people.
God’s masterpiece is the fulfilment of His Will. Will you engage with us in God’s mission for this world?
Over the next few weeks we will be looking at Matthew 5-7, The Sermon on the Mount. We will be using some awesome video teaching from Video Bible Talks and reflections from people within our own church community.

This week we have an awesome guest speaker who will encourage us with a personal reflection on Psalm 131. We will also have an update on one of our Global Mission partners and check out some cute baby photos of people in our community – trust me it will all make sense soon!
So grab a seat with whoever else is in your bubble and join us as church.
Today is a day of celebration. Jesus has conquered the grave! Our service this morning dwells on God’s love for us, we will share communion together and at the conclusion of the service is a wee clip just for fun.
Today is a day to celebrate – He is risen, He is risen indeed!
A Reflective Service based on Mark 15:25-41. This day can only be called good because we know Sunday is coming. For the disciples and those at the foot of the cross, there was nothing good in what they experienced that day. Today pause and reflect on the crucifixion of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
