The Elephant in the Room

On Sunday we started a new a sermon series: ‘The Elephant in the Room’. We will be looking at what it means to live out our faith in the current Covid19 situation. For two years we have experienced disruption in every area of our lives due to Covid19. Coronavirus and its impact on our lives including our faith has been the elephant in the room for some time, so let’s look at the elephant in the room.

Sunday Gathering 29th August

Week Two of our Level Four Lockdown sees us begin a new series on the Armour of God. So grab a coffee, tea or other hot beverage and settle in for church online this week.

As always the link will be available from around 9:00 am on Sunday morning.

Our prayer is that you will be aware of Gods presence and that He will be the one whom we keep our eyes on in this difficult time.

Shalom from Annette & Simon

Prayer and Self Denial

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?

Mother’s Day 2020

This morning we continue our series: Women in the Bible. Simon will be teaching from 1 Samuel and looking at Hannah and how her barrenness caused cultural-less-ness.

We celebrate Mother’s Day today and our service also includes an update from Manna home, one of our Global mission partners.

Its great to have you join us, so grab a seat wherever you are and settle in.

We pray that God by His Holy Spirit will meet you, minister to you and that soon we will be able to gather physically and not just virtually.

Shalom
