The Net for Men!


Great this week to meet with several people one-to-one and do some mentoring.
Topics covered;
“How to prepare and preach a sermon” & “Evangelism, discovering and using my gifts”

Quote: Steven Spielberg:

“The delicate balance of mentoring someone is not creating them in your own image, but giving them the opportunity to create themselves.”

Hawthorne Court Nursing Home

Great time this morning at Hawthorne Court nursing home, Southampton. Great to see so many awake and active (and the odd person even heckling! But in a nice way!).
Thanks to my helpers Grace, Abi and Penny.

Happy Easter!

An extract from the Bible:

“What I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve. After that, he appeared to more than five hundred.”

Where to find it:

The Bible: 1 Corinthians chapter 15 verses 3-6

About these words:

From a letter written by Paul, one of the first Christian leaders, to a church in Corinth, about twenty years after the events. Paul had not met Jesus in person, so he was passing on what Christians widely believed about him at that time

Rocky’s Plaice Holiday Club

Rocky’s Plaice Holiday Club @ Duncan Road Church. Southampton. Uk

Rocky’s Plaice was a five-day children’s holiday club which ran from Monday 8th April to Friday 12th April 2019.

The club is based in a fish and chip restaurant that happens to be the meeting place of a church that loves helping children learn about Jesus!
When this cafe church was established, the building was renamed Rocky’s Plaice in honour of Jesus’ friend Peter!

The holiday club taught 5 stories from the book of the Bible called Acts. These stories celebrates how God established the first ever churches and the life of the church today.

The children enjoyed Quizzes, Crafts, DVD’s, Bible Stories, Activities, Games and lots more!

The Net with Ivor Cooper

Great to catch up with my good friend and mentor Ivor Cooper (and his chauffer for the night Terry Osbourne) at tonight’s ‘The Net.’
Ivor shared about his experience of living with brain cancer – he was honest, real and positive in what he shared! Another good night for the room full of men who came along.

Please pray for the men gathered, when it comes to faith a real mixture, some with plenty and others with none!
