Summer is a treasured time for rest and holidays as we connect with family and friends. It’s a wonderful gift from God.
Heading into 2021, we need this gift as much as ever!
Only God knows what is ahead for us in a new year. Things might be better than last year… it could be more of the same.
We need refreshment physically, relationaly and spiritually. We need personal refreshment and refreshment as a church.
The gospel message of what God is doing in the world refreshes our perspective, joy, partnership and mission.
This summer we are doing ‘church’ in a way that helps us to:
1. Engage deeply with the gospel
Watch the 7-part Summer Refresh series in Philippians with Russell
Broadcast at 9am every Sunday in Dec/Jan (or on demand later).
Use the Study Guide to shape your prayers for personal refreshment
Participate in the Enjoying God book club podcast with Tim
2. Connect warmly with one another
Meet with others on Sundays at the Church Building for fellowship, prayer, singing and to watch the Summer Refresh series: 9am, 10:30am & 6pm at the Church Building
