As a church, we are on a quest to ask God, “what does the church that you want to build look like?”
In this week’s message, Ps Lois Willis explores the idea that perhaps, up until now, we’ve been stuck in man-made living. But now God has led us, like Jacob, to an altar where we can lay down our old ways and move our lives and the church toward God-made living.
Do you know God as your safety and your refuge? Like Jacob, are you able to find your peace, safety and rest in Him, the Rock of Ages?
Explore what resting on the rock means for us today with this week’s message from Ps Jo Willis: ‘Heaven on Earth: A Refuge on the Rock of Ages’.
Are there any areas of your life that feel a bit cluttered? Any place where, if even the smallest button is pressed, you’re triggered?
It’s been easy in this stay-at-home season to get caught up in the clutter. To feel as though we have to do everything and be everyone to make sure all bases are covered. But trying to fulfil all these areas in our own strength can not only build up our frustrations, but sap our strength in and devotion to Christ.
We need to chill and regain our zeal! Figure out how you can do that in your own life with this week’s podcast message from Ps Tebo Mpanza.
What are you battling with right now? What is happening in your life that is making it seem like there’s no way back?

There’s an unexpected power in belonging.
Your ability to belong is inextricably linked to your gifting being released and without it giants of intimidation will continue to threaten our future. But God has built a giant slayer into each one of us, uniquely gifting us to take down giants both personally and on behalf of others, and it happens as we are we are planted in the soil of community and flourish beside the stream of the Holy Spirit. Understand that there are stages to belonging; it takes something of us, and as we move through them, God transforms us to become giant slayers on behalf of a generation.
