Our lead pastor Phil Moore writes: Dear Everyday Church family, For most of us, the coronavirus crisis has been a time of learning. We’ve learned a lot about ourselves, a lot about the Lord and a lot about the world. I’ve already posted blogs about two areas where I think that we have learned the most as a church family, so here’s a third area: we … Continue reading What is God teaching us through Covid-19? – #3 Conspiracy Theories and Truth
My dad died on 7th November 2020. His death was tragic and unexpected. While this is not the first bereavement I have suffered, I have never experienced death feeling so close. So scary. So final. To be honest, it has felt like my life will never move on from its current perpetually sad state. Even if you are not presently enduring an acute moment of … Continue reading May the God of hope… (how to endure when life is hard)
About a month ago we finished our latest Alpha Course. We have run eight Alpha Courses over the last three years at Everyday Church. And while they have all been brilliant, it is safe to say the four we have run since March have been the most interesting! Restrictions on gatherings due to the COVID-19 pandemic meant we’ve hosted these courses online. It takes a … Continue reading Alpha Course – Reporting Back
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?
