Guest Speaker – Steve Morris

30th July 2017 | Steve Morris

Today we have the great pleasure of welcoming back (briefly) Steve Morris, who is currently working for the SOZO Foundation in Cape Town, South Africa. For those who don’t know, he was one of our key youth workers here at CCCH before being called to work in Cape Town.

As is usual with Steve, he brings us a very enthusiastic and passionate message. His style is fast (I’ve seen express trains go slower!) so listen carefully!!

He brings us three key points that he has condensed down from previous teachings he has done. The theme running throughout though is that we should be overwhelmed by the wonders of Jesus. He also states that this will only come if we surrender ourselves completely to Him. Steve sets some challenges for us as he asks some thought provoking questions. He also shares some statistics and facts about his work in South Africa which are there to help encourage us


Relational Mission Book – Everyone a Witness – 3 of 7

23rd July 2017 | David Bareham

David brings us a passionate, heartfelt message today and starts by asking all of us the question “Who or how many people have we spoken to about Jesus this week?” Two of the congregation, Andre and Christine, share their stories.

He reads from Acts 1:8 and then David reminds us of the example he used last week inspired by the reading from Mark 1:17. His teaching today is covered by six key points and we are given a stark reminder of what the consequences are of sharing the word here in the UK and abroad in other countries!

We are also reminded that we must be careful not to alienate ourselves from the secular world by just mixing with our Christian friends. It is very easy to stay in our comfort zone, but that is not what Jesus taught. David gives us some good tips on how to “lead” a conversation whereby we are given the opportunity to witness. We must have intentional conversation.


Relational Mission Book – Raising Sons and Daughters – 2 of 7

16th July 2017 | David Bareham

David brings us part two of the new series today and his reading is just one verse, 2 Timothy 2:2. Although the title of today’s message is “Raising Sons and Daughters”, David uses the keyword “Discipleship” throughout today. He goes on to give us two examples (one funny and one serious) of what it means to be a disciple. Once we have that concept in our minds, he encourages us tell others.

David gives us a reminder of the vision of Terry Virgo from the New Frontiers church and how he released 15 “sons” to go out there and continue his work. That is mirroring what Jesus told his disciples to do. We also hear many examples in scripture of this fact.

David closes by giving examples of how we can disciple our congregation. He asks three questions as to how we can implement this message in church and gives us some prayer points to consider.


Relational Mission Book – Real Family – 1 of 7

9th July 2017 | Tolu Falase

We start today a short series looking at a book written by Mike Betts from the Relational Mission group of churches. The title of this book is “Relational Mission” and we are going to look at seven key points that Mike has written about and open them up to the church.

Tolu reads from Mark 10:46-52 and from just these four verses a very deep and interesting story unfolds about the blind beggar’s meeting with Jesus.

Tolu raises some key points of how we can put today’s message into practice, because this is what Jesus taught his followers. Having a good family relationship is important for all of us in this already too stressful world.


Life in the Spirit – Part Six – 4 of 4

2nd July 2017 | David Bareham

Before rounding of our series, “LIfe in the Spirit”, David gives us a little foretaste of what is to come next week as we go through a book written by Mike Betts from the Relational Mission group of churches. Many of you will have heard him speak here at CCCH before.

David’s main reading is from 1 Corinthians 12:1-11 as we learn about “Tongues and Interpretation”. He starts by giving us the definition of both, to maybe clear up any confusion and then raises some very important points as to whether we should be speaking in tongues or not. The Holy Spirit is the one that grants us that power, so we should actively seek to be able to use this fantastic gift.

David darts about through scripture to back up what I feel is an amazing message today. There is lots to learn and take in, so you may want to listen to it a couple of times!


Life in the Spirit – Part Six – 3 of 4

25th June 2017 | Malcolm Sullivan

On our penultimate part of this series, Malcolm continues with looking at the “Gifts of the Holy Spirit – Prophecy and Discernment”. He reads from Corinthians before opening up the Word.
Whilst reflecting on what has been said since this series began he says that “If the Holy Spirit moves within us, don’t try and work out what is going on and what gift you may have received…just enjoy it!” One important point he makes early on, is the difference between a prophet and prophecy. We must be aware of this.

There will always be an element of humanity in a prophet within church, so we have to weigh up what is being said and speak to leadership if necessary to ensure that we aren’t being mislead. This takes us nicely into the spiritual gift of discernment.. We are reminded that the devil is always out there trying to thwart God’s work. We must be on our guard as discernment can be very useful in helping people in church with their problems.
