  • Time To Clear The Weeds

    Time To Clear The Weeds

    03/05/2020 Duração: 30min

    Pastor Steu speaks about clearing weeds from our lives. He focuses on three key weeds; Insecurity, Offence and Doubt. He has been gardening recently clearing weeds, which tend to grow back unless the roots are dug out and the soil tended. In the garden of our lives, there is also a challenge to keep ourselves weed free. Proverbs 4:23 tells us to guard our heart as it determines the course of our lives. If our lives are the garden, then our hearts are the soil and God wants to be able to display his glory in our garden. Removing the weeds and planting fruit bearing plants is our responsibility as a Christian. No one else can do this, however we are not alone….good people surround us and we need to call upon them, especially if their gardens are beautiful! Our heavenly Father is present in the garden of our lives also. In order to deal with the weeds we need to understand them. Weeds start with seeds and growth begins under the surface until they take over unattended areas of our lives. Salvation is often a ti

    Being Fruitful in This Season

    26/04/2020 Duração: 39min

    The rhythm of life has currently changed for a period of time. It is important that we make wise choices during this season. Our choices will determine whether we grow producing fruit and flowers in the garden of our life or allow weeds and thistles grow in our lives and so curtail healthy fruit and flowers. At this time of isolation, there can be stress and loneliness. We need to give people our support, connecting with them, being loving towards them. How we deal with comparative isolation depends to an extent on our character. If we are introverts we may well be naturally comfortable but if we are more extrovert we may struggle. Regardless of our chief character traits the key aspect is our personal response to the situation. We may choose to lock ourselves away - looking away from others rather than looking to help others. Alternatively, we may say “I’ll make the most of this unusual season to help others.” Captain Tom Moore’s outlook and response is a wonderful example of a 99 year old who decided to hel

    As part of our Worship Morning, Ps Charlie shares this short introduction to meeting with God in a personal way, looking at the example of Moses' shining face in Exodus 34.

  • Family Values 6 - Spiritual

    Family Values 6 - Spiritual

    01/03/2020 Duração: 48min

    Continuing the Family Values series, Ps Charlie reminds us of the importance of engaging with all 3 aspects of God, including the Holy Spirit. Our entire Christian life began with the Holy Spirit drawing us to the Father & now there is no aspect of our Christian life that we can do without the Holy Spirit. When you turn to things to numb pain or stimulate boredom, turn to the Holy Spirit instead, seek Him in your lowest moments, seek Him in the highest heights. Life with the Holy Spirit is not without pain, but there is always comfort.

  • Family Values 5 - Community

    Continuing our look through the Family Values of Family Church, Ps Charlie highlights 3 problems with how we see community: 1. We are called to build community not find it 2. Our expectations of what we receive from community are greater than our commitment to being part of it 3. Would you qualify to be a part of your perfect community? And we are left with the challenge - can you stay part of community long enough to build relationships so you can say/hear things only people close to you can say?

    This week we welcomed guest speakers Fiona & David Killough, Family Church supported missionaries with Overland Missions. Their message challenges us to redefine how we think about faith - it's not simply you getting the thing you want for your life - faith will cost you, if it doesn't cost you, it's not faith. What are the walls that need to be broken down to stop you chasing what the world says is worthy & remember that only Jesus is worthy?

    Starting our new series on the core values of Family Church, Ps Charlie looks at what it means to be Christ-centred. What is your first priority, what is your life centred on?

    On Global Sunday we were privileged to have Caleb & Becci join us from Hands at Work as we were challenged to think about the loveless in our community and how our culture can interfere with our heart for God - do we see the poor and vulnerable, and if we do see them, do we act?
