Our videos are designed to strengthen and encourage as we commit to walking, growing and being built up In Him. Colossians 2:6-7 says : Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.
Contents of the video will also be used in our Come Closer small groups. These are small groups, which meet once a month. See our Connect page for more details.
March Come Closer Focus – Look to Jesus – Your Saviour:
March’s Come Closer video continues our series called ‘Look to Jesus’. This month we are focusing on the incredible truth that Jesus is The Saviour of the world. He is your Saviour. Emma Beaney spends a few minutes looking at what justification looks like, through asking two questions and giving an invitation. Yes, justification is a big word, but it holds powerful truths.
We have the assurance of forgiveness as we surrender ourselves to Jesus. We are clean and covered in Christ’s righteousness. By God’s amazing grace and love, we are saved. Take some time to listen here… Emma is also joined by Deborah Gregg and Debbie Bowker who share some of their insights.
February Come Closer Focus – Look to Jesus:
Enjoy our February Focus from Emma Beaney called ‘Look to Jesus’. In this message she asks 2 questions and gives an invitation. Using passages from Hebrews 12:2, Isaiah 26:3 and Matthew 14: 22-33, she explores the simple yet often hard to remember response of looking to Jesus. Just as the disciples knew Jesus’ WITH-NESS, remember that he is with you. He is closer than we can know.
If you belong to a Come Closer small group, you’ll dive deeper into the events of Peter walking on the water including Jesus’ invitation for him to ‘Come’. We hope that this short message strengthens and encourages you. #comecloser #looktoJesus

March Come Closer 2020 – Gemma Mills (Audio)
This is the message given at Come Closer in March.
Gemma writes looking back: "I didn't realise quite how timely this word was. I think we have entered a season where not only have we been gifted with time but we've also been bombarded with things to cause fear and uncertainty to rise. I truely believe that each one of us needs to consciously turn our eyes upon Jesus and worship Him. Love Him with our hearts, mind, soul and strength. Lets use this gift of time to delve deeper in our relationship with Him.
I (Emma) can tell you that God began to speak to Gemma about bringing this word early in 2020. Have a listen and allow God’s word to speak to you today…
