Life Explored

In January, we're planning to run an evangelistic course called Life Explored, on Sunday evenings in Gosforth, for the whole Christ Church network. We’ve chosen this course because it’s designed for those who don’t consider themselves to be religious, and have never read the Bible, which is many or most o...

Keep Calm and...

Dear friends, If you missed it, here is what I said in church on Sunday, at both Heaton and Gosforth, in the wake of the Referendum result.  I have not particularly cleaned it up for print. What’s more, it is not meant for general distribution, but aimed at Christ Church people – you! What I say here is simply my attempt to speak the ...

Cue the barbecues, ice cream, beach trips, holidays, water fights and swimming in the sea (for the brave!). And with the summer comes children’s camps too.

Finding Life Tough?

In my job I hear about lots of hard stuff going on in people’s lives. Even in a young network like ours there are many stories of real difficulty and uncertainty. I also notice that hard stuff is never evenly spread. It’s not as if Christ Church gets ‘x’ amount of difficulty which can then be shared out amongst our members.
