If you missed Georgie speaking on financial capital a few weeks ago, this is now available to listen to here.
At 9am Communion last Sunday David Williamson was speaking about the conversion of Saul from Acts 9.
David reminded us that conversion is always an act of God’s grace and nothing is going to get in the way of it! God in his goodness steps towards us and gives us the strength to respond to him.
Saul had been persecuting the young church and God intervened. Jesus met Saul on the road even when Saul could not recognise him. God spoke to him and then provided someone (Ananais) to pray for him, care for him and help him make sense of the encounter with God that he had just experienced.
David asked us three questions, which I want to pose to you –
How did you come to faith?
When did you last tell someone about your conversion?
Do you celebrate your conversion?
Let’s be people who acknowledge and celebrate what God is doing in our lives. Let’s also commit ourselves to looking for people with whom God is working (we describe them as people of peace), share with them what God is doing in our lives and help them make sense of their own experiences of Him.
Have a great week! Ben

The Feast is our annual celebration of all that God is doing at Kairos! This year we are holding two events:
Feast Night of Prayer: Friday 10th October to Saturday 11th October – 8pm til 8am
We will be praying in the Kairos room from 8am to 8pm: you could come to the whole night, half the night, or just a couple of hours.
There will be prayer resources and space for you to encounter God on your own and in small groups. There will also be led prayer every hour.
Have a look at the times listed on the Kairos Website and decide how much you can commit to.
If you can’t make it to the time when your MSC or team is being prayed for don’t worry too much, come along at another time and pray for someone else.
Feast Sunday: 12th October
10am – 12:30: Whole Kairos Gathering
There will be time to worship and share communion together. We will be celebrating what God has done and listening to the things he is calling us to for the coming year.
Please do prioritise being there.
We will continue the celebrations with lunch with the whole Kairos family. The more the merrier; let Rachel you are coming (you can do that by hitting reply) and she can make sure there is plenty of provisions!
Enjoy the Feast Weekend!
