1) Christianity Explored

Next term we’re launching into a 6 week investigation of the core beliefs of the Christian faith. Starting on Wednesday evenings (7.15-9.15) from 5th August, each evening involves a meal and an ‘any question goes’ approach to our discussion. Perfect if you’re new to Christian things or want to get settled on exactly what the gospel is. Sign up by speaking to Chris or Rob.

2) Message Church Camp

Another reminder that the annual Message Church Camp takes place from 28-30 August. Please diarise this and start saving for it. It is usually one of the highlights of the year.

3) Andrew Hoole’s Baptism
Andrew will be baptised on Sunday evening during the evening service. Baptisms are always great celebratory occasions and wonderful signs of God’s grace. So do join us for this special occasion.

See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ. If you’ve been following the series, you will hopefully know by now that the message of Colossians is ultimately focussed on the supremacy and hence sufficiency of Jesus.

While I might not act on all your feedback – I’m sure it will be impossible to please everyone – it will encourage me to keep refining and working on making the site it the best it can be. Message artwork has been put back, don’t think it’s quite right yet though, I also want to change the heading font colour. It is getting fairly consistent traffic, an average of about 10 hits a day. Thank you to everyone who has started frequenting the site.
