I love Christmas! No, really I do. I know for some it is a tough time, but by the grace of God Christmas has always been good to me. Even growing up in a slightly dysfunctional family, I remember Christmas being a time of Joy. When my own children were small I discovered that it really is better to give than to receive and the … Continue reading Christmas
One of the biggest questions that I keep being asked by people across Everyday Church right now is: What is God teaching us as a church through Covid-19? To answer that question, I’ll be posting a few thoughts over the next few weeks from our conversations together as whole-church elders, but we don’t claim to be the only ones who can answer this question. If you are part … Continue reading What Is God Teaching Us Through Covid-19? – #2 Sacrifice & Suffering
One of the biggest questions that I keep being asked by people across Everyday Church right now is: What is God teaching us as a church through Covid-19? The past few months of not being permitted to meet together in person have been so difficult for many of us that it’s only natural for us to find ourselves grappling to find clear meaning to this season. As … Continue reading What Is God Teaching Us Through Covid-19? – #1 Corporate Prayer
As a Life Group leader, together with my husband Chris, come Monday (or even Tuesday eve) we are always on the hunt for the illusive LG guide & some Godly guidance ahead of our Tuesday meetings. These guides are super helpful and with the best intentions prep time is generally (but not always) left to last minute scouring of gmail accounts and the church suite. … Continue reading How to use the Everyday Church App
Dear Everyday Church family, Someone once told me that to do something once in church was innovation, to do it twice was to make it a habit and to do it three times was to create a tradition. Well by that reckoning these finance updates have become a new Everyday tradition! We said back in April that we want to create a culture of Transparency, … Continue reading Financial Update
A message from our lead pastor, Phil Moore: Dear Everyday Church family, There is only question that I get asked as often as “When will Everyday Church move out of lockdown?” It is the follow-up question, “What will Everyday Church look like after we move out of lockdown?” We are the Body of Christ, so this is a question for him to answer and for us … Continue reading What will we look like as a church after lockdown?
Dear Everyday Church family, Given that the UK government still shows no sign of permitting us to resume our Sunday services at our buildings, I thought that you might find it helpful if I wrote a brief blog to update you on what is happening across our church as we begin a new term together. These are frustrating times, but not fruitless times, and I … Continue reading What’s happening at Everyday Church?
We want our kids to become 3D followers of Jesus. We want them to connect UP with God, IN with God’s people, and OUT to serve the world. This (little?) “Little Disciples” series has been all about how we help our kids to connect UP with God. So far, we’ve explored Bible reading (Little Disciples #2), praying (Little Disciples #3) and singing (Little Disciples #4). … Continue reading Little Disciples #5 – Children and the Holy Spirit
I’ve recently watched the film Hacksaw Ridge. It’s several years old and I’m perhaps a little late in discovering it. If you’ve never seen it, it’s based on a true story about the heroics of a conscientious objector during World War 2. Determined to serve in the battle, but with a conviction from God that he shouldn’t kill anybody, it’s very gripping (it’s as gruesome … Continue reading Just one more
