Other Activities

Do you feel at the end of your tether? Do you need some help and want someone to talk to? Is life giving you too much to cope with? Do you feel that you can’t go on?

There is a listening ear and prayerful support available for you (in absolute confidence)

Sometimes comes a point in our lives when routine just seems too much to cope with our own. There is no shame in asking someone for help in these times. Care Counselling is available for anyone who feels that they would like some support, either for a short time or for a longer time. Never feel a problem is too small or too big to share with someone that will be happy to pray with you and for you.

Christianity is pretty simple. It's all about one life, the life of Jesus, and it can be summed up in five steps:

  1. Who is Jesus?
    He’s the Christ. The King who God himself had promised to send, who would put everything right by setting up a kingdom of justice and love. He’s also the Son of God. God himself, entering the world as a human being. Jesus proved who he was by what he did. He healed people. He calmed storms. He raised the dead. By doing these things, the King was giving a glimpse of life in his kingdom. A perfect place, with no suffering, fear or death. It’s the world we all want.
  2. Why did Jesus come? To be rejected.
    Many people rejected Jesus. They thought they’d be happier making their own rules and living outside his kingdom. This rejection of the King is something we all do. Jesus called it sin. It damages our lives and will eventually leave us separated from the joy of being in the kingdom. God won’t let those who reject the King live with him. So we face what Jesus called hell. An existence without anything good, forever.
  3. Why did Jesus come? To be killed.
    People rejected the King so violently that they killed him by nailing him to a cross. But his death wasn’t a mistake by God – it was a masterstroke. On the cross, Jesus was cut off from God’s friendship and goodness. He chose to experience hell – so that we don’t have to. The sinless King died to take the punishment sin deserves. Jesus was opening the way into his kingdom.
  4. Why did Jesus come? To Rise again.
    Three days after his execution, his tomb was found to be empty. Over the next few weeks many ate with Jesus. Dozens spoke with him. Hundreds saw him. Jesus the King could not be contained by death. He had risen!
  5. What does it mean for us?
    So, today, right now, Jesus is inviting people to come into his kingdom. He tells us to repent and believe the good news. Repent means to turn around, to live with Jesus in charge instead of ourselves. Believe means to trust that Jesus has done everything we need to give us a place in his kingdom. Living with Jesus as King isn’t easy. His followers will be rejected, just as he was. But they also live a life of deep security, satisfaction, and joy, knowing God and his forgiveness, being helped by his Spirit, and looking forward to the King’s return, when he will finally establish his loving kingdom forever.
Jesus offers all this to anyone and everyone who repents and believes. How about you?
