Level up your lockdown through online games

Everybody is over Zoom meetings already…so how can we continue to develop our relationships when we’re physically distant? I love gaming in almost all its forms, and thanks to 2021 gaming is more and more prevalent and connects us in all sorts of ways. Sometimes it’s instant-all-in-together; sometimes it’s turn about while we chat; still […]

Sharing peace in your neighbourhood

We continue the Covid challenge this week thinking about how we can bring the peace of God to those around us. The peace of God is talked about often in the bible. It is one of the beautiful gifts that God has given us, a reminder not to worry, for God is with us. As […]

Faith is something that is caught not taught, a mentoring relationship gives you and your congregation […]

“We are far too comfortable being Christian-ish…”

So what are we going to do about it? Finley Peter Dunne wrote in 1902 that the job of a newspaper is to “comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable”. It’s a reasonable enough claim to suggest that the call of Christ on us as disciples is the very same. During this continuing COVID-affected time […]

Parents – get some rest! WE NEED YOU!

As I write my articles on the numerous events that are going on with PULSE, and the wider church, I seriously had to stop for a second and pause. Thinking about, all these upcoming events cannot happen without Parents and carer’s around us, lifting us up, inspiring us as see go though life. We are […]
