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!
