Testimonies

The Word of God is alive and active

"Since attending the cell prayer meetings, I find much more meaning in Scripture for my daily living. I am listening to Jesus as though He is with me at all times, as if I am with those to whom He addresses in Scripture. This is bringing great support to me." Angela 

"I'm experiencing a deeper understanding of God through listening to, sharing and discussing the Gospel at our cell. I feel a closer connection to Him and to those in my community, a feeling of love and belonging." Marion 

"Being part of a cell has been a wonderful opportunity to chat about living my faith in the world today. Before I joined, I hadn't realised how much of a comfort it could be to gain faith friends who are on the some walk as I am!" Shane 


We are one of many small groups who meet every two weeks in family homes. We meet to grow in and share our faith as we pray, read scripture, some music and song and so much more. I’m so thankful to God, to be able to have one in my home and it means so much to me.  Each time as I prepare the space for the meeting, I feel I’m not just preparing for friends who will come along, but for Jesus, because of his promise:  
“Where two or more are gathered in my name I am there.”

So, we light the candle, ask him to pray with us and for us. I feel so blessed, as do the group who say it’s like family, where we listen to and accept each other, just as we are, whether you believe, or struggling to believe.  It’s where they find courage, comfort, and wisdom to deal with sometimes difficult situations in their lives, finding hope through getting to know Jesus as a loving reliable friend, who gives them the courage and conviction to share their faith as they go about their daily lives.  We have a teaching on the scripture reading, then talk about it, hear what it may be saying to us personally or to us as a group. Always good and gives us food for thought.  We have prayer of petition where we place all our needs, our loved ones who ask for prayer, into the loving hands of God and his blessed mother Mary. We give thanks for his love and goodness and finish with a promise to keep each other in prayer until we meet again. We then pray the Our Father facing outwards as a reminder to go out and tell the good news as we go.  Then we have a cuppa and more chat, a wonderful way to spend an evening.  COME AND SEE! - Betty Kelly
