CCCH – Our Vision – Part Four

31st January 2016 | David Bareham

Still on our mini series that opens up our vision for CCCH, David reads from Matthew 25:31 as we look today at ‘Salvation’ and what it means to us to see people saved.

He starts by giving us an insight as to what to expect from our teachings this year. He then shares a story from Adrian Holloway. Many of you would have seen him speak in the past at our church. This story sets the scene for David’s message.

We live in a broken world and it is our duty (as given from God) to witness to those that don’t know Jesus.
David gives us some stark realities about heaven and hell and as a foretaste of the series of teachings about witnessing, he gives us some practical advice as to what we can do now. He reads us an amazing story from a 125 year old book that involves the Salvation Army and how a man was saved.
We may never be able to share such a story of how we saved someone – but we have to do what we can to spread the Word, and with God’s grace – we will be able to save the lost.


CCCH – Our Vision – Part Three

24th January 2016 | Malcolm Sullivan

In this, the third part of our series looking at “Our Vision for CCCH”, Malcolm reads from Acts 19. The theme of today’s message is “Transformation”

Malcolm starts by reminding us as to what defines being a Christian is and how we are transformed / reborn again when we commit to follow Him.
We must strive to be more like Jesus and we must change our habits and our mindset.

Malcolm asks, “What weapons are we using to fight Satan?” We can be comforted in knowing that God will give us everything we need and that we must allow the Holy Spirit to enter our lives. He finishes his message by giving us practical advice  on how to rid ourselves of the things that may be holding us back.


CCCH – Our Vision – Part Two

17th January 2016 | David Bareham

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CCCH – You are 20 years old this month!! 🙂

David’s message today is a mixture of two parts. Not only is it our annual review and update, it is also a celebration of our church being on Chafford Hundred for the last 20 years.

To keep the message in context with scripture, he reads from John 15.
There is so much to say, I cannot possibly fit it all in! We hear about our church plants, how we are working in the community, our church eldership and leaders (which includes prayer for them) and David recognises all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes with our many volunteers.

He also gives us an insight as to what our focus will be for 2016….We will be digging deep into the act of Evangelism.

One date to put in your diary is the special ‘Gift Day’ on the 31st January 2016. This is to add to the tithes and offerings so gratefully received to enable our church to continue with it’s work in all the areas that this message speaks about.


CCCH – Our Vision – Part One

10th January 2016 | Tope Olukemi

First of all, I want to say, “Happy New Year” to you all……

We start the new year with a look back at our vision for Community Church Chafford Hundred. We will look at the vision over the next few weeks and to start off, Tope looks at what it means to be a disciple.

He asks, “Who and What is a Disciple?”….. Tope gives a very defined answer, but the good news is, that once we become Christians, we also become a disciple. It is not something we have to aspire too. He reads from Luke 14:25-35 and there are some strong points that come out of the reading and as a parent myself, this is a struggle to get my/your head around.
The remainder of Tope’s message is bringing the meaning of discipleship and what Jesus expects of us. He (Jesus) can offer us so much more than what this world ever can!

Tope also summarises what we do as a church and how you, the congregation, can become involved. Don’t just sit back and think others will do it. Christ has called us to serve.


Is Jesus With Us?

27th December 2015 | David Bareham

As we bring 2015 to a close, David gives us a message to remind us that we need Jesus in our lives.

He reads from Luke 2:41 and we hear how Jesus became separated from his family and became left behind in Jerusalem when he was only 12 years old. When His parents went back to search for Him, He was found safe and sound in the temple.
David gives us an example of how we (people) can get caught up in tradition and custom. He tells us that we have to be careful that we don’t let tradition and custom take the place of Jesus. Let us not assume that He is with us. We must actively seek Him and not be satisfied until we feel His presence!

David closes by encouraging us to be part of the prayer meetings being held at the start of 2016. This will enable us to re-build and strengthen that relationship that we may have lost with Him.

I wish you all a Happy and Blessed New Year



Christmas Message

13th December 2015 | Malcolm Sullivan

As is usual with Malcolm, he brings us a lighthearted and fun message involving the families in our congregation. He shares a short story that gave him the inspiration for his teaching today in which he heard a lady praying so that people may more understand the true meaning of Christmas.

Whilst we hear lots of fun and laughter, Malcolm finishes with a serious moment so that we can take it away and think about this message as we spend time with our families during this holiday period.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 🙂
