Pastors Ponderings

by Pastors Ponderings

The purpose of Chapter 12 in the book of Acts is to show us that Jesus is King of kings. The story goes that Herod Agrippa (who is not the same Herod who tried to have Jesus killed when he was born) is king over Judah and Jerusalem and to please the Jews he persecutes […]

To know God more

by Mrs Jesus Follower

Mmm…I’m not sure if I agree with that…I thumb through my Bible searching for a passage I read just a few days ago that will prove my point…back my point of view.  Sound familiar or is that just me? Recently Daniel reminded us that our focus…our desire needs to be to know God more. I […]

I looked in the mirror. I saw my reflection and thought, “Gee, how I’ve changed in this past year.” Twelve months ago I had no hair on my head, it was a case of depression, that any hair on my scone had to come off. It was like a form of self-abuse, by doing this […]

to halloween…or not?

by Random Ramblings

There are lots of Christians who are all too ready to declare Halloween all kinds of evil and plenty has been said about why Christians should not celebrate it or participate in any way with anything to do with it. People have legitimate concerns about the abundance of spiritual and magical imagery and content that, […]

Pastors Ponderings

This week I don’t have a particular point to get across – I am more in a reflective mood!! When we came to CBBC almost 4 years ago we were very aware that the church was taking a chance on Julie and myself. We weren’t Baptists, we were a couple and wanted to job-share and […]

God Moments

by Random Ramblings

I was chatting to a good friend this week about growing in our relationship with God and how sometimes we just feel stuck in our walk. I can say being a mumma of three and having worked full time on and off in the last 12 years that… it’s hard! ( really-really-super-mega-hard) As mummas we […]

Could this be you?

by Mrs Jesus Follower

The following is an extract from a day in the life of a CBBC volunteer:  Could this be you? I dropped the shopping onto the kitchen bench, scrubbed my hands and pulled an apron over my head.  Flicking the kettle on I wandered into the Hall where a jumble of happy voices floated toward me. […]

Ever since her death on early Sunday morning, I’ve been thinking about our lovely friend. Her funeral will be here at CBBC this week  and so I suppose one could say that it’s not unusual to be thinking of her at this time. However, it’s more than that. It’s as if everything I read seems […]

being transformed

by Mrs Jesus Follower

Being transformed into His image… Mmm…I’m not sure if I agree with that…I thumb through my Bible searching for a passage I read just a few days ago that will prove my point.  Sound familiar or is that just me? Recently, Daniel reminded us that our focus…our desire needs to be to know God more. […]

L Plate Christian- it’s priceless

by L Plate Christian

Whilst sitting, waiting for the service to start last Sunday, I couldn’t help notice all the little children about the church. I thought to myself, “how quickly the really young ones had progressed to walking and some of them running around”. The looks of pure happiness on their faces were priceless. Then I thought, “I […]
