Could YOU be a church leader?

An estimated 85% of the world’s churches are led by people with no formal ministry education. The charity Global Action trains and equips ordinary people to become church leaders. Their UK director, Colin Williams, is coming to West Denton Church in June. He’s speaking at a special event at 10.30 a.m. on Saturday 8th, then leading our service on Sunday 9th. We hope you can come along and be inspired. Both events are free, but refreshments will be provided, so please email churchsecretary.wdc@gmail.com to let us know you’re coming.

Be a Peacemaker!

We are called to be peacemakers – we should want to share the peace that is in us with others. Being a peacemaker is hard because it means that we have to lay our own wishes and inclinations aside. Here are some verses to read that I hope help you to think of ways that you can practice and develop your peacemaker skills:
1 Peter 3:9 – Do not do evil if people have done evil to you, but do good instead.
1 Peter 3:10 – Stop saying bad and untrue things about people.
1 Peter 3:11 – Turn away from evil and do good.
1 peter 3:11 – Seek peace and really work for it!
Romans 14:19 – Work at the things that will help other people.
Ephesians 4:26 – Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry.
Colossians 3:13 – Forgive each other
Colossians 3:14 – Make sure you are loving in your attitude.
Colossians 3:15 – Let the peace of God be first in your heart.
Colossians 3:15 – Be thankful!
