I can honestly say that my dad was a great dad. He was faithful to my mum, he was a good example of hard work and dedication, he provided for us and made sure we had security, he was fun and funny and he cared about us his kids. But he wasn’t perfect. No dad is. And we should never expect them to be.Read More
The one word I got at the beginning of the year to meditate on through 2017 was 'clarity'. I remember thinking 'oh, that's a nice word.' Who doesn't want a bit of clarity? Who doesn't want to see a bit clearer? It seemed like a pleasant, almost sweet word.Read More
Antoni and I came into C3 as young single adults - our lives were changed forever. Very soon after my first visit I was attending weekly services, prayer meetings and connect groups. C3 became my home and has remained so for 31 years. I love the people, worship, Word of God brought to us by amazing speakers, and I love the community we reach.Read More
Going on an American road trip has been a dream of mine ever since I was a little girl and last month this dream came to pass. A dear friend of mine and I packed our bags, jumped on a plane and flew to LA where we hired an RV that we would call home for the next 3 weeks. With every hour that passed as we were driving, the environment around us changed drastically. Our eyes were truly opened to the diversity, greatness and creativity of God!Read More
I can remember it like it was yesterday, I was standing in my kitchen making tea and my mum was standing next to me. My mum said that she needed to tell me something and before I knew it, my whole life had shiftedRead More
Have you ever wondered why the promise land was won by a group of people, slowly walking around the walls of Jericho? In Joshua 6 we find the account of the people of Israel finally taking the promise land and it wasn’t by war or battle, it was won by worship and walking. I thought this was so unusual until God showed me the powerful disciplines that the Israelites learnt in the slow walk of the wilderness.Read More
Love in action does not look like buying into the production of fast fashion when you are aware of the impacts it has on garment workers and communities, not just in the third world. We have choice. We have the freedom to choose between endless products. We drive the consumer demand of products and our shopping habits determine the future of fashion trade.Read More
Have you ever wondered, “I thought I’d have my life together by now…”, “Is this what I’m meant to be doing?” or perhaps ever thought, “Am I going in the right direction?” or “Am I doing enough?”. I recently pondered these questions, and found myself instantly stressed because without realizing it, I was trying to find affirmation in what I was doing, rather than who God has called me to be.Read More
Last week we sat down with one of the most generous women we know to chat generosity in all its forms. We hope you are as inspired by her pearls of wisdom as we are!Read More
The Potter sat at break of day,
And gazed upon His chosen clay,
Then they began - the clay and He,
The dance of life, on spinning wheel.
With gentle hand and watchful eye,
The Potter caused the clay to rise.
But what is shapeless mound of grey?
So dance they must and so they stay.
When I’m out photographing it will often feel as if I am dancing… Oh I don’t mean physically, because when I look down my two big clumsy feet are firmly on the ground. But something on the inside of me is twirling and spinning and floating!Read More
Scars are amongst the most hated things in the world - some physical, some emotional. People's desperate desire to wipe away a scar earns millions for many industries. Scars are treated with contempt. I have a few scars to show - childhood falls, stray ones from the occasional zit, cooking mishaps and more recently, a large scar from a surgery. Then there are the emotional scars - various shapes, sizes and really too many to list out.Read More
