MEALS WITH JESUS - Community - Ian Waddington 2020

“Which one of us can face the reality of our sins, if we’re not first of all assured of Christ’s love for us, made tangible in the love from others” - it’s in knowing him that we can know ourselves... that’s why the Church’s expressed disapproval of sin always needs to be in the context of acceptance of the people concerned.”
- Ian Waddington

MEALS WITH JESUS - It's not about the food - Tony Plews 2020

MEALS WITH JESUS - It's not about the food - Tony Plews 2020

“It’s not about the food, because it isn’t. It’s actually about our identity as the people of God, and our mission as the people of God... Jesus embodies living in intimate relationships with all kinds of people - the socially respectable and the non-respectable. His friends, and His enemies. And He treated them all with respect even if they did not ‘deserve’ it. And we are called to do that…”  - Tony Plews



MEALS WITH JESUS - Overview - Kris Gilbert

MEALS WITH JESUS - Overview - Kris Gilbert

“When we talk about how we want to live out the mission of Jesus, one of the things that we think about is how can we effectively do that in our natural rhythms of life. And if all of us have to eat, if all of us are around the table from time to time, we need to be thinking about as followers of Jesus, how we can use that time to be faithful to the mission that he has called us to do.”
- Kris Gilbert

“The vision for Thrive is that our children will be connected and that they will have relationship with significant adults outside of their programme. That they will know belonging. Not just for them, that they would grow to have a life long faith, but that all of us would grow to a life of long and full faith. That’s the dream."
- Angie Wiggins

THIS IS US - Equipped - Robin Knox

“Some days it feels as if the equipping either just isn’t working or it’s never ending and we’ll never ever get anywhere - so we listen to Paul again speaking from Philippians 1:6 - ‘…and I am certain that God who began the good work within you, will continue His work until it’s finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns’  …”
- Robin Knox

We started with an imaginative reading from Mark 1: 16-20 - have a read and then listen to the message!

THIS IS US - Loved - Kris Gilbert 2020

“God has a much bigger story, and being loved means being a part of that big story, as well as being loved personally and individually. I'm actually not sure we can make sense of it, but we have to wrestle with it…” 
- Kris Gilbert
