CCK Life.

Anna and I are taking some time out this summer. It's been a demanding two years and we're in a situation which could develop into serious exhaustion. So I felt we needed to take a long break this summer, away from responsibility and serving. The elders at CCK have thoroughly endorsed this decision and are keen for us to have a good break and time away. So, from this last weekend, I'm laying down all my responsibilities at CCK for the next 10 weeks, and my involvement at Together On A Mission, Mobilise and Newday. Through some amazing God circumstances, we're actually flying out of the UK to spend our time in a fantastic city with a superb Newfrontiers church. And I will be disappearing from the online world of twitter, Facebook, blogging and emails… ! It's been a fast paced three weeks since these decisions were made, with elder’s involvement. There are no sin issues or wrongdoing. I haven't been asked to step down or been disqualified and this is not a church discipline situation. It was my initiation and it has received the elders endorsement.

Yohaan: Matt, your sermon at the Men’s Weekend on the Sunday morning was spoken of very highly. Thanks for being with us! Can you tell me how you became a Christian? Matt : I was born in to a strong Christian family. My parents, John (who was an elder at CCK till he retired last year) and Sue, brought us up teaching us about Jesus from the Bible. At a young age I decided to become a follower of Jesus and accepted Him as my Lord and Saviour.

Yohaan: It’s been great having you with us at CCK this weekend Rory. I’m sure there are some very fired up men who would like to know more about you! Rory: I grew up in a Christian home. My first encounter with the living God was when I was 5. I had meningitis and nearly died. My grandfather who was an Anglican vicar at the time prayed for me and the power of God touched me and I was left with marks on my face. I woke up the next day out of a coma without a trace of the meningitis. I knew that God was powerful and alive and I was living with a second chance. But I got too busy playing sport to be Christian.

Pete and Jacqui Jarvis: A Tale of Restoration Jacqui’s bit: From the moment I became a follower of Jesus as a teenager, it’s always been about people. God is about people, and it seems that whatever any of us feel we should do for Jesus, whatever we think the remit is, it’s going to involve lots of people! That goes pretty much against my natural grain, as I come from a family who would happily ‘recluse’ – so it seems that God just knew that this natural grain needed some genetic modification!!
