Weekly Update 18/01/21

Hi all

Tash and I are missing you all and looking forward to seeing you beyond our screens! This week we had a great time on live prayer. We saw words of knowledge, prophecy, and at least one healing testified to. We also managed to bring Cheryl Smythe on as a guest too! God is moving as the church continues to operate in a much more public setting.

We are praying for you all and for your families. Declaring health, provision and the abundant blessings of God upon each of you.

CLC family testimonies

 

 

We love our church family and we want to hear from you!

 

As we continue with church online we want our services to have an authentic CLC family feel. Send us your stories of Worship, Welcome, and Witness, then we will share them in our CLC online services.

 

If you have a testimony in any of the following areas then please send it to us:

 

Worship

 

Do you have something to thank God for? What is inspiring you to worship God at the moment? How is God impacting your life currently?

 

Welcome

 

How are you and your family doing? Where are you from? What are you praying about at the moment? How can we pray for you? Are you new to the CLC family then take a moment to introduce yourself.

 

Witness

 

Which not yet Christian people are in you Reach that we can pray for?  Have you shared your faith with anyone recently? Do you have a story of healing, salvation, or answered prayer as you have been sharing your faith?

 

The technical bit:

 

    • Testimonies should be between 1 and 3 minutes long
    • Record on your phone in landscape
    • Record in a quiet area with good lighting
    • Send your videos to us via whatsapp or wetransfer

 

We are looking forward to hearing from you and seeing you in our online services.

 

Pray without ceasing

 

Our weekly Wednesday evening prayer meeting led by Dave and Sue continues via zoom every Wednesday at 7:30pm. Contact us for the zoom codes.

 

The freshness of God

 

I don’t know about you but for us as a family, lockdown life can feel pretty stale. Particularly for Naomi and Isaac who like the majority of children are home schooling. The daily routine of life can get monotonous. However God is never monotonous or stale. His word tells us that His mercies are new every morning. God’s blessings, His love, His life, His creativity, joy, and grace are not just new in the material sense of being brand new, unused, never owned by anyone else. They are also fresh, unperishing not prone to rot or rust, never going stale. The blessings of God are fresh every day!

In these difficult and somewhat mundane times of lockdown let us ask God “Father what do you have that is fresh for me?” His Mercies are new every morning and He will do new things in us if we will posture ourselves to discover and receive.

 

22 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
    his mercies never come to an end;
23 they are new every morning;
    great is your faithfulness.

 

 

Love and Blessings
