Sunday Gathering

A big thank you to everyone who joined us for our online gathering this morning. It’s been great to get so much feedback from you.

If you didn’t manage to join us, or would like to re-watch it, it’s available on YouTube here:

Marriage Week and The Marriage Sessions

Over recent weeks we have been encouraging you to sign up for The Marriage Sessions with Care for the Family (more details below). As well as the sessions themselves you’ll also be seeing other resources from us this week.

In less than two weeks we’ll be streaming our first episode of The Marriage Sessions. Over 3,000 couples are already taking part – so join in and sign up for a free date night (or four)!

The Marriage Sessions explores how couples can build a fun, strong and lasting relationship. Many marriages will be feeling the strain right now, but we’re hoping this resource will help you not only endure this season together, but enjoy it.

Every Monday from 11 May for four weeks we’ll send you a link to one session, which you can watch at a time that suits you and your partner best. Each episode includes a mix of real life stories, insight from leading relationship specialists and trusted wisdom from Rob Parsons.

Midweek you’ll also receive some bonus content to help you unpack the session even further (just make sure you confirm to receive emails from us when you sign up). 

So sign up today and enjoy four free date nights on us!

A GOOD OLD AGE, Derek PRIME – £5.99

Old age often gets a bad press. Associated with grumpiness, aches and pains, loneliness, and isolation it’s not something we particularly look forward to or relish when we’re there. Pastor and Bible teacher Derek Prime, himself in his 80s, shows us that there is another way to view old age. He guides us through 26 Christian priorities that we should hold to in later life. This is a book to dip into, meditate on and read prayerfully as you let the truths it contains gently transform the way you live your old age.

LINK-IT-UP BIBLE, THE – Bob HARTMAN – £9.99

Highly visual and interactive, this is a Bob Hartman Bible like never before. Containing over 60 stories, this book highlights the links between stories and draws attention to the wider themes of the Bible. With arrows zipping across the page, pull-out text boxes asking the reader questions and illustration elements bringing each story to life, this book sees the whole Bible linked up and connected to show the bigger story at work – and the God behind it all.

CHOOSE TO WORSHIP CD – REND COLLECTIVE – £9.99

As a follow-up to their critically acclaimed album “Good News,” (2018) which included the hit single, “Counting Every Blessing,” Northern Ireland’s Rend Collective brings us their 7th studio album, “CHOOSE TO WORSHIP.” Including declarative anthem, “YOUR NAME IS POWER” and contemplative title-track, “CHOOSE TO WORSHIP,” this release is full of exciting new sounds and messages for the listener. “CHOOSE TO WORSHIP,” is a spirit-filled journey that reminds us that, in every high and every low, choosing to worship something greater than ourselves is a daily decision that we get to make. Since the release of their first album, Organic Family Hymnal, the group’s authentic and energetic style of worship has attracted an international audience.
