Small World

It’s September and we’re starting a new term of ESOL classes at the Jesus Centre here in Coventry. Students are coming in to register and I’m greeted by a wide-smiling African face and a greeting in broken English: “Do you remember me? I met you in Calais.” Well, the memory doesn’t always serve me well. […]

Hunger for God’s Word is Growing!

People are hungry for the word of God! A new wind is blowing – a new eagerness to voyage through the pages of the Bible on a path of discovery. Recently I went to RAW (Real and Wild), our annual youth event, and led a discussion group on ‘Digging Deep’ – why and how to […]

Catch the Fire! On a Damp Evening!

Catch the Fire is a year old. We all celebrated with a bonfire and ice-cream (never mind that it what raining, cold and some of us were also sitting under umbrellas). Despite the wet, we managed to set and keep the fire alight and yes, it raged!   Catch the Fire is a group where […]

At Least Once a Year

A wise member of our congregation once advised us that we should preach about 1 Corinthians 13 at least once a year. Yesterday was one of those ‘at least once’ occasions. James reminded us that the Corinthian church was the original messy church! It consisted of disunity, immorality, drunkenness, pride, confusion about spiritual gifts and […]

Muddy faces!

  We had a great kids ‘splot’ at church this week…The kids got to have their faces painted with mud. My boys dream come true!! After talking about what the mud did to them (dirty, rough, uncomfortable, disgusting) they were encouraged to think about what sin does to us on the inside and how it’s […]

We’re off to the Calais refugee and migrant camp again and this time we’re taking food parcels – we’re travelling as I write! Thank you so much to those of you in the congregation who have contributed food items, empty bottles for cooking oil and prayers. There are 8 of us this time and we’re […]

Thought you might like to see some of the dresses we’ve been making at the Friday night creative evening. They are for a group called Dress a Girl Around the World who provide simple patterns and get the dresses to the girls who need them most. We’ve been using old clothing, random fabric and even […]

It’s not something I often do, stand in front of 200 people, talk and then be surrounded by my church family as they pray for me. But a friend and I had had an inspiration which seemed to catch hold of something in others and they  wanted to support us. Our inspiration? To go to […]

Once a year our local church here in Coventry join up with the rest of the Jesus Fellowship congregations from across the UK to march through central London. It’s a day that we look forward to, over 1000 people taking to the streets, singing dancing and having a party in Trafalgar Square, not something you […]
