Gatherings from November 2021
On Sunday we started our journey through Advent and this season we are going to focus on the Jesse Trees. These are the male and female ancestry lines of Jesus. Our time included creativity, worship, prayer, stories and spending time together. In our gathering we gave some background, worked together creatively and explored where we give Hope Peace, Joy and Love this season. It was lovely to see our children taking part and giving their insights.
This gathering was a great time of coming together with Skylark International as Springwater joined the Skylark Network. It was great to hear for Pete and Nicki Simms who lead the network and enjoy powerful music, words and encouragement given by God. It was a lovely time of Jesus followers connecting together and celebrate our shared hope of living out Jesus and kingdom in all the areas we are working in.
In this service we share communion together, Mike leads us through a time of Remembrance and Grace Turner facilitated us in contemplating the depth and power of the prayer Jesus gave to his disciples.
In this recent weekend gathering several in the community shared lovely stories of how God had impacted their lives, it was both challenging and encouraging. The church community also enjoyed a special time of musical worship and focussed on global prayer that included Tear Fund helping us pray for our world and the leaders as they met for COP 22.
