What a blessing it is to be part of our CLC family, with so many gifted, anointed, and willing people ready to serve God and each other. This weekend we heard a great authentic and encouraging word from Tabo, our worship team continue to bless and serve us with Dave Gibson leading us on Sunday. Your testimonies and prophetic words also keep coming in to encourage us and lift us up. We are a blessed family and I am so thankful to be a part of CLC.
Thank you for your prayers as I had the privilege of sharing the word and taking some of our kingdom culture over to Widnes. We had a wonderful time, God blessed us and blessed the church as we continue to grow relationships and support Widnes.
This weekend we look forward to celebrating Easter together and I am sure many of you will now get the opportunity to see each other as we are allowed to meet another household outside. Tash and I are so looking forward to catching up face to face in the coming months.
We have two Easter services coming up:
- Good Friday – Online Service 10:30am
- Easter Sunday – In Person (by booking) & Online service 10:30am
Service for April and May – Book your spaces as they are filling up fast
Our online services are now beginning to fill up, we have one remaining space for Easter Sunday and the 18th of April we have a few spaces left. In May our weekly bookings are open, can I suggest you book early to avoid missing out.
Our online services will continue weekly so we will always have both options available.

Testimonies witness to the Goodness of God
We have been blessed and inspire by the many stories, words, and worship you have been sending in to us over the last six weeks. Please can you continue to send us your Welcome, Worship, or Witness stories then we can all celebrate your testimonies and hear from you. We believe testimonies will be a key to God releasing greater things into the life and ministry of our CLC family.

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

Easter – New Life
I’m sure like me you are looking forward to Easter, not only is it the centrepiece of our faith it is the single most transformational event in the whole of History. The centrepiece of life as Jesus sacrifices His life that we might live. The point in the incarnation of God where Jesus defeats death & Sin, satisfies justice and pours out grace. The point where human relationship with God is restored and a whole new way of life is opened up, as the people of God are now indwelled by The Holy Spirit. Born again believers can now be born of the spirit and carry the presence of God. A whole new way of life is possible through the death and resurrection of Jesus. This new life is abundant and eternal, pain is seasonal, death may come but we will never again fear death as the end. Rather we will see death as the resurrection to our life eternal, living with God forever. Easter is new life and the season we are in reflects that. I love that Easter for us in the UK is spring time and as the natural world wakes up around us, as the blossom appears on the trees, as the daffodils and tulips on the ground bloom into life, it acts as a physical reminder of a spiritual reality, we worship the God who is the resurrection and the life. Easter is new life, celebrate it, enjoy it and allow the first blooms of spring to turn your hearts to worship.
John 11:25 & 26
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
Love and blessings
