When you face the challenge
act then, and don't delay
‘Take the bull by the horns’
and win through on that day
Don't ever hesitate
always “Grasp the Nettle’
Show that you mean Business
by displaying your mettle
Yes, take on every challenge
with supreme confidence
As you win every Battle
You ‘ll reveal the evidence.
That you never ‘fight’ alone
You have a Saviour by your side
His enabling, powerful spirit
Always protects and provides

‘British Christianity isn’t dying. It’s sleeping. Evangelism can awaken it.’
This was the title of an article published in the Daily Telegraph this last week that was also quoted as part of the opening preach at the Relational Mission Leadership Conference. The resounding message from the secular press and Christian leaders is that the church isn’t dead but poised for growth. How will this happen? By each one of us taking hold of the great commission’s call to live as Christ’s witnesses each day.

This is the fourth of a mini series of blogs we've produced on 'worship.' You can read the other three here as we explored Who we worship, Why we worship and last time, How we worship.
Today, we want to ask the quesiton 'How do we worship God (part II)?'

Personal encounters with Jesus, physical healing, salvation, words of knowledge and prophecy are all things that have been happening recently…IN OUR CHILDREN’S WORK!!
Yes, there is so much of the Kingdom of God happening regularly in Supergang! I remember a few weeks ago making the comment that if you ever hear me using the term ‘main meeting’ rather than ‘adult meeting’ then you have my full permission to slap me. That still stands as true because it is so clear that in the mind of our Lord, there is no segregation between what happens with the adults and what happens with the children.
Truly there is no junior Holy Spirit!
As I write this I am aware that last Sunday we had thirty 6-11 year-olds in Transformers. That makes for one very busy Small Hall. Our Supergang teams do such a magnificent job as they faithfully produce life-shaping and transforming sessions for our kids. They really are some of the frequently un-sung heroes of CCBS.
In case you missed it, our Children’s Work is actually the primary driving force in our desire to launch our second Sunday morning meeting from September 11th this year. Congestion in that part of our church life is more acutely felt than in the Main Hall. What a wonderful problem to have!
Already in this regard alone we are breaking the mould of what is expected from a church in a small town. God is already fulfilling His promises among us!
My prayer is that as we obediently do what we can to create room for growth, God will supernaturally add many new family units to us. This is what co-labouring with the Lord looks like. Sometimes it isn’t comfortable to embrace change, but the privilege of seeing lives transformed and filled with the love, joy, and peace of the Kingdom makes it so very worth while.
Pray with me that our kids and young people will truly use our ceiling as their platform and see more of the Kingdom in their life-times than we ever dreamed possible! Let your Kingdom come Lord!
