We've been away getting ready for a big church year, but we wanted to share this last talk from REVIVE, our annual festival bringing the churches of the network to a field in Canterbury for a weekend of Bible Teaching, Worship, and great fellowship together as churches. This is from Dave Cornish and Jules Stroud on "Faithful in Singleness."
Most of us would probably not have chosen singleness. Yet God’s word calls it a gift and calls us to be faithful in it. And faithfulness is a whole church project. We are coming together at REVIVE to think through some of the particular challenges of being faithful to Jesus as a singleton, and how we as a whole church family can encourage each other to keep lifting our eyes to him on the way.
Dave, a member at Hope Church Sutton since the 2015 graft and an elder since 2019, joyfully leads their youth work. He teaches teenagers about following Jesus, and organises socials, camps and weekends away.
Jules has attended Christ Church Balham since 2010, serving as a ministry trainee from 2015 and now as a staff member. She finds joy in helping people understand God’s love.
