We believe that God is going to take us deeper in 2021. Deeper into God, deeper into community and deeper into the harvest.
Our vision is to raise an army of disciples who naturally multiply to make other disciples and who also bring transformation to the world around. We believe that this time is part of God’s plan to help us become those kinds of people as we go deeper.
Deeper Into God
So are we ready to go deeper into God this year? Are we thirsty for more of Him? There’s so many ways we can express that.
Are you willing to go deeper into prayer - Finding new ways to pray or new people to pray with. Check out our Thirst page for loads of next steps.
Maybe its time to take a different approach to reading the bible - maybe try out RAW church to learn about discovery bible study or pick up some of the books on our recommended reading list.
Deeper Into Community
Secondly we feel God calling us deeper into community. God is calling us to go deeper, to build healthier relationships and to make sure we have a unity of the spirit that goes deeper and can withstand and actually grow stronger under pressure
Maybe it’s making extra time to connect with friends or to seek to turn acquaintances into friends. Could you connect in to a life group or missional community. Or join up with RAW church or make a face to face meeting a priority when they reopen.
Maybe we need to deal with heart issues that fight against community. Check out the teaching we’ve done in previous years on forgiveness and judgements.
Deeper Into The Harvest
When He looked out on the crowds of people in his day, Jesus saw helpless, lost people like a harvest - finally ready to be brought to know him as their shepherd. What does it look like for us then, to follow Jesus deeper into the Harvest. Deeper into the places of lostness around us.
Maybe it starts with asking the Lord to give you a heart for the lost people around you praying for people every day. Is it time to practice sharing your story or sharing the gospel of the kingdom in an easy to memorise way like the 3 circles. Maybe it’s getting some training on living out your faith in the workplace or using this time to learn how to lead a discovery bible study with whose who are far from Jesus or inviting them into online alpha.
We'd love to send you further updates in the future of other resources and materials (at most once a month) of how we can go deeper together as a church family.

We'd love to go deeper into God together as a community during Lent (starts Wed 17th Feb) by reading this book: "The Little Book Of Lent".
The Little Book of Lent’ is a powerful anthology of readings from well known writers and theologians for each day of Lent, with accompanying scripture and prayers to help guide daily reflections.
Order the book here (Amazon, other retailers listed below) - in paperback or kindle - and if money is a problem do email us so we can order it for you. Then read it together with your friends or family!
