An evening with... Anna Lewis

It's an exciting time in the church - God is on the move there is a real feeling of expectancy. And I (Chris) get really motivated for everyone to know that they are called by God, and that he has a purpose for our lives as well as loving us.

It's important for all of us to know this, but especially for women to know that we are called to an adventure with God.

So we're setting up a series of meetings where we hear other women's stories - over wine and cheese - of how God has called them and how they have grown into who he's made them to be.

The next one is with Anna Lewis - who is director of Open Door, a charity working with refugees, and has a prophetic gift. So come and hear her story on Friday 15th March at Anne Ng's house: 22 Herefordshire drive, Belmont, DH1 2DQ. Meet at 7pm to start at 7:30pm.

Please rsvp to anneng1@hotmail.co.uk so we know how much wine and cheese to get!

We're so thankful to God for the links he has given us around the world, and the friends from around the world he has brought to us here in the North East. We're looking forward to celebrating our International Sunday 2019 on Sunday 3rd March. There will be a joint meeting of our Durham and Chester-le-Street congregations at The Durham Centre at 10:30am.

We're also inviting everyone to think about 'living links' we have to other countries. This could be a living relative, or close friend. We'll be marking them on a world map and praying for them. It will be wonderful to see just how far our influence goes!

And, as with previous years, we're all invited to wear national dress for the service. It doesn't have to be your own national dress - it can be whatever nation you like! 

It promises to be a great morning together. To whet your appetite, take a look back at last year's International Sunday here

March Burn with Jeremy Perigo

March Burn with Jeremy Perigo

There is such a powerful sense that The Lord is on the move in our nation, in our time.... And His church is rising as an army to join Him. So it’s wonderful to keep seeking God month by month with believers from across the church in Durham ( and beyond 😃 ) to call on His Name and ask for more grace. We’re going to do so again Friday March 1st from 6PM till midnight, skillfully led into the knowledge of His wonderful Face by incredible local worship leaders…

….and we’re so happy this month that we’re being also being joined by Dr Jeremy Perigo, from the London School of Theology. Jeremy is the Director of Music & Worship Programmes at LST, an amazing musician with numerous albums, and who continues to catalyse a movement of prayer and worship with Burn 24/7 in the Middle East. He has so much to share with us, on many levels, and we really encourage you receive something while he’s here.

Jeremy is being hosted by Kings Church for the weekend, teaching on the Theology of Worship (and more 😃 ). On the Saturday morning there is an open session, which we totally recommend getting to if you have any desire for a deeper grounding in the biblical basis for charismatic worship.

https://www.facebook.com/events/406777536746310/

During the Burn he’s leading a worship session and also teaching. Jeremy has been at the heart of Burn24/7 globally since it started in 2008, and we are expecting a huge download of grace from the Father through his ministry.

Hope you can join us somewhere on route.
