Giving

giving-matters-2014

Giving is a natural response to a generous God.  The Bible says that ‘each person should give what they have decided in their heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver (1 Corinthians 9:7.) Your giving enables us to: support our Mission Partners around the world employ our staff […]

Pastor’s Piece

Welcome to our website

The other week I talked about having a “come as you are” culture at church.  This means that we don’t make people conform to our standards of dress or behaviour before we accept them.  This can be easier said than done!  But Jesus is our supreme example.  “God demonstrates his own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8).  There was absolutely no way we deserved to be accepted and loved by God, and yet we are!

We can all “come as we are” too.  As you come to worship this Sunday, remember that Jesus doesn’t demand perfection in us.  Nor is there is a perfect time or spot to approach Jesus.  Throughout the day, every day, there are countless opportunities to check in with Jesus in whatever situation we are in.  Jesus says to us:

“Come, come as you are – just come.  I am your friend; I am here, waiting for you.”
So let us accept his invitation – and be people in whom the love and acceptance of Jesus is obvious to all.
