“Someday you will read or hear that Billy Graham is dead. Don’t you believe a word of it. I shall be more alive than I am now. I will just have changed my address. I will have gone into the presence of God.”
This week we had the advice from one of our teenagers at Church that listening to Matt Redman and Rend Collective were really helpful to her. If you were interested in finding out more about these two bands just have a listen!

The cost of the weekend will be covered by Trinity Church (this includes venue hire, speaker’s costs, Saturday lunch, barbecue,
coffees & teas, and bacon butties on Sunday morning). A suggested contribution towards the cost of the weekend is £10 per family.
Please put your money in the special Looking Up, Looking Out! box in the foyer.
Heres a link to the information leaflet that was released on 28th January, it includes a breakdown of activities on the weekend, details of the theme for the weekend, and information on the planning team.
This will be a simple three weeks with some input from the front and a good amount of time for you to talk with your spouse and strengthen your relationship. Hosted in the Blue Ball Pub, with the chance to enjoy a dessert. Please email email@example.com if you are thinking about coming as there are limited spaces.
Please be aware that the evening service will not be happening on the 7th or the 21st of January. On the 21st there is a churches together prayer meeting at Belmont, please join us there. Otherwise our morning services at Clyst Heath will be running as normal.
How do you get into the bible? Easy, just remember SOAP.
Scripture – Pick up the bible and read a section
Observe – Find a particular idea or verse and try to understand what it means in that section
Apply – Think through how that impacts your life
Pray – Ask God or thank God for whatever you have discovered in his word and that you would live in light of it.
One bonus point is that you can simply jot down in a journal or notebook each of those 4 points as you go perhaps a sentence on each. Writing things down is guaranteed to help in remembering what you have read.
This week we have a book recommendation which, I am not exaggerating, has and is giving my entire life a greater focus clarity and passion to use every ounce of energy and rest for God. The book has as its subtitle “How the Gospel Transforms the way you get things done” which is wonderfully clear.
This book is if you are unsure about the point of your life, where you are headed, if you feel like you are totally overwhelmed with the stuff of life, if you feel like you cannot make a difference, if you feel like what you believe has not connected to what you do with your life, or you aren’t satisfied (I think that covers most of us)
It seems so simple and obvious but God explicitly has saved us for good works but we often never practice or think about how to be good at them! So a book about productivity shaped by the gospel should be much celebrated.
4 copies will be given away on Sunday the 22nd!
Christianity Explored is made up of 7 evenings, sharing a desert and then discussing some words for the book of Mark in the bible as well as watching a video. It doesn’t matter what your background is or what your beliefs are you are welcome! Whether you want to look at Jesus for the first time or want to get back to looking at him please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The course begins on the 2nd of Nov
