Our Virtual Meeting

20 March by Susie

In these strange and unsettling times here at Refresh we are getting creative about how respond to the biblical instruction (Hebrews 10:25) to not giving up meeting together. So from this weekend (22nd March 2020) Refresh will be moving to entirely virtual meetings. We are confident of God’s unfailing love and know that he’s placed us together as family to encourage and strengthen one another from the youngest to the oldest. more

Over a September weekend Refresh church family got together to hang out, have fun and step out…. With Holy Spirit’s presence to guide us and big hearted inspiration from Chris Duffet and his team, we took some steps of faith. Saturday morning’s menu ranged from café chatting, to give aways, to public painting…and we invited the community to Fun Day lunch. The ‘bag and card gift challenge’ was to pray. Buy a card & gift. more

One Way

This Sunday in Refresh we took a look at John 14:1-14 which packs a lot of things to think about in one small section of the bible and asked ourselves these questions: What does it mean to you that Jesus is “the way, the truth and the life”? What does Jesus want to say to you today? How does it feel to know that Jesus has prepared a place for you in heaven? more
