Over recent weeks we have been hearing about the importance of fruitfulness. Throughout the whole bible we see God’s plan is for all of creation, including us, to be fruitful. This week Trevor Shotter takes some time to ask the question “How do we make sure we can be fruitful?”
Trevor continues to introduce our Be Fruitful season. At the heart of it all, is soul fruitfulness. That is, a fruitful inner life. And it’s by doing that that we can become fruitful followers of Jesus.
“The purpose of God is to use us, his children, to transform the wilderness our world, into the garden of God.” This week Trevor takes some time to introduce us to our new theme for the next few months “Be Fruitful”.

Last week Alison shared about the importance of using stories whilst sharing the gospel. This week she delves deeper into what this means and the hope that come come as we do.
We all love a good story! They help us relate to each, connect with each other and find our place in the world. Jesus used stories to tell us what his Father is like and we can use them to tell people what Jesus is like. This week Alison guides us through one way we can do this.
Last week Trevor talked about the big picture of filling the earth with the goodness of God. This week he takes time to consider with us what that looks like practically in the three areas of Good Lives, Works and News.
We talk about God’s glory covering the whole earth. But what do we mean by God’s glory? Trevor Lloyd encourages us that it is to see God’s likeness shining & to see what God is like in all his brilliance. And God is good! Let’s celebrate goodness. Listen here for more on how to do this.
As our family grows it’s important that we make space for them physically but we also need to make space in our hearts as Ruth explains.
It’s important that we know how to feed ourselves and what on. But it’s not just for our benefit, what we feed ourselves on is what we can use to feed and nourish others as Sara explains.
Jesus commands us to be fruitful but what does this look like in our daily lives and does it matter to us? Richard Anniss joined us on Sunday to help us explore this topic.
As followers of Jesus we know that no matter where we find ourselves in the physical we are free. And we are called to bring that freedom to others. Here’s Dan to encourage us.
Going beyond ourselves in prayer. thoughts and giving enables us to keep the doors open. Trevor Lloyd is here to encourage us to do just that.
What does the gospel mean to you? Alison encourages us that if we take time to understand the power of the gospel we will realise it’s something we need to share with those around us.
Even though we currently find ourselves in lock down we have taken some time over the past few weeks to talk about open gates. Here Trevor Lloyd takes a look through Acts and encourages us with what can happen at the gates.
