In light of the current guidelines issued by the government and by The Methodist Church regarding the impact of Covid-19 we have taken the decision not to gather in REfUSE on a Sunday evening until further notice. We believe that this decision is the best way in which we can fulfil the command to 'Love God and love our neighbour', by being part of the global move to limit the spread of the virus and protect the most vulnerable in our communities. Situations like the one we are facing bring home the importance of community and the need 'love one another' in practical ways. If there is anyone who needs support or help please get in touch.
If you would like to know more about being a Christian and the hope that we have in Jesus, or be part of an online gathering for worship, please get in touch using one of the methods on our contact page.
Week 3 - Fully Forgiven
October 16, 2016
The apostle Paul reminds the church in Colossae that God has not just cancelled our debt, i.e. our trespasses against God, but has cancelled the record of the debt itself. He did this by nailing the record of our debt to the cross where it was destroyed along with death itself. This is the nature of Gods grace, his love poured out freely for us. Colossians 2:13-14
This passage from Colossians triggered a comment and conversation on the difficulty we all have to truly forgive others in the way that God has forgiven us. This in turn led to a time of unplanned prayer.
