On Sunday, Joan shared a word and many of you have been asking for a copy of it. One person summed up what was felt, this is important, and we want to understand it and not loose what God is saying. Joan called this ‘My Journey with my God. God’s holiness Psalm18. 10th Feb 2019’. […]

Last Sunday, Daniel spoke on repentance asking, what is it and how do you do it and why would you do this?  What’s interesting is that Phil was praying and received a word along a similar line from God.  I think the Lord is wanting us to hear Him on this subject and He is […]

As promised, here’s my understanding on How to discern what the Holy Spirit is saying through Scripture.

This week Tani spoke to us about ‘sitting with our sin’- that is, allowing space in our lives for the Spirit of God to deeply convict, forgive and heal us. It is only when we learn to welcome God into our darkest parts that we experience a revelation of what it really means to welcome […]

Phil, a member of CBBC, shared this word with the oversight team which he received from the Lord. We would love to share this with you and take some time to pray about this Sunday.   A Time of Renewal and Restoration.   “I am the Lord in the Highest.  A call to My people, to […]
