The Foundation of the First Things

You have left your first love. Revelation 2:4 Its very often the first things in our lives that shape our identity and the way we live our lives going forward. Our culture places great emphasis on first things…..we often think about or discuss with our peers … our first kiss or our first car. I’ve

And We Still Go To The High Places

The Pastor welcomes the congregation into the house of God and encourages everyone that today they have come to meet with the living God.

The Way Out of Cain Part Two

Have You Ever Paid For Sex

  There’s not many men or women who will openly confess to having paid for sex. Being a “punter” is something that men will rarely boast about, but the fact is many have used the services of a prostitute. If you have then you’ll appreciate some of the bible stories better than others and recognise
