Dear Lord, You love me warts and all. Thats amazing. But whats most amazing is that the Savior of the world would desire a few minutes with me this morning. Lord, help me to forever remember what a gift it is to sit with You like this. Amen.

Dear Lord  when we are tempted to pick and choose our table companions, Lord, forgive our judgmental attitudes and help us to find room at life’s table for all, marvelling that even we ourselves are among the guests. Amen.

Who was Barnabas?

Barnabas lived at the same time as Jesus and during the life of the early Christian Church he became instrumental in the spreading of the Christian gospel throughout the Mediterranean.  His name means ‘encourager’. Encouragement forms an integral part of our church community at the crossroads in Emmer Green.

Like Barnabas we want to encourage and support you. Also like Barnabas we believe we have a message we want to share with you, the good news of the gospel which opens up a whole new way of life.
