What a privilege to have Talita's friends and former pastors with us this Sunday, Antonio and Gabriella with their children.  Having experienced the growth of  the church in Goiana, Brazil from a handful of people to a mega church of thousands with an amazing children's ministry they now pastor a growing church in Swindon UK.  

"Our mission is to build a church of overcomers where every member is a minister and every home is an extension of the church in order that we win our generation for Christ."

Antonio's word was encouraging us to be a people of faith, full of the word of God and living every day in the Spirit - then see what God will do.

  1. When I survey the wondrous cross
    On which the Prince of glory died,
    My richest gain I count but loss,
    And pour contempt on all my pride.
  2. Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,
    Save in the death of Christ my God!
    All the vain things that charm me most,
    I sacrifice them to His blood.
  3. See from His head, His hands, His feet,
    Sorrow and love flow mingled down!
    Did e’er such love and sorrow meet,
    Or thorns compose so rich a crown?
  4. Were the whole realm of nature mine,
    That were a present far too small;
    Love so amazing, so divine,
    Demands my soul, my life, my all.
  5. Join us at New Life Church this Easter as we remember the sacrifice Jesus made for us all on the cross and celebrate his resurrection which brought us eternal life and a relationship with our heavenly Father.

European Mission
Over the Easter weekend I will be travelling to Madrid for two weeks of ministry in mainland Europe. After a weekend in Spain I minister in Albania for a week and then Macedonia and Kosovo.
I will be joined by Pastor Salomon Valdez (Mexico), Evangelist Rebecca Baker (USA), Rob Pritchard, Angie Lendon, Sally Velia, Amber Leigh Amos, Gary Smith, Stephanie Glorney, Tim Gordon (Revive Church), Ian Cantrall (Buxton), Hannakhah Mann (Bradford) and Rachel Mallender (Bridlington).
For many decades Europe has been known as the “dark continent” spiritually, but there are signs that an awaking is taking place in Europe once again. Please pray for God to really move in power during this trip. We believe Europe shall be saved!

Traditionally the Sunday before Easter is celebrated as Palm Sunday.  The day when Jesus the King of all Kings rode into Jerusalem on a donkey.  People shouted and danced to welcome the one who came 'in the name of the Lord'.  They threw their coats on the floor to make the donkey's way easier. They grabbed palm leaves to wave like flags and called out 'Hosanna.'

Literally, hosanna means “I beg you to save!” or “please deliver us!”  I wonder if any of them realised what they were asking of Jesus or understood, like he did, what that salvation was going to cost him personally.

Let's come this Sunday as we gather to worship with grateful hearts, knowing the price Jesus paid for us.  How much more should we, who have received his grace and mercy, come with singing, dancing and shouts of victory.  Jesus did all that was needed to save us.  He has delivered us from every sin that separated us from God.  All we have to do is turn our hearts towards him and receive his gift of new life.
