26 Things in 26 Years.

This week I turned twenty-six years old: that makes it ten years since I left school; eight years since I left Basingstoke; seven years since I started university. The past few years have brought  s o  m u c h  growth: I'm becoming more myself every day, and although it's a painful process at times, I…

Fluffy Socks, Pancakes for Dinner and an Emergency Nandos Card (Adulting for Beginners)

I'm not sure I can deny it any longer. It's a massive weight, a burden that I just need to get off my chest. I've been denying it but it's always there at the back of my mind; I just can't get rid of it, and I really need to talk to someone about this. I'm…

The Contentedness Diaries.

Every now and then, I get a verse stuck in my head: it'll come up time and time again in a certain season - in sermons that I listen to, in conversations that I have with friends, in the videos that I have on as background noise. Those words will become my heartbeat; the rhythm of…

The Colossians Series: It’s All About Jesus (Col 1.15-28)

It's the third week in our series on the letter to the Colossians, and today we're tackling the end of chapter one. Colossians is such a massive book - you could write a sermon on any of the verses - but there is so much packed into the first chapter, that we wanted to take a…

The Colossians Series: A Life Worthy of the Lord (Col 1:9-14)

Week Two! Last Monday we kicked off our new series on the letter to the Colossians - we read the beginning of Paul's letter to the Church in Colossae, and thought about what it means to be called faithful brothers and sisters. You can read the first blog post in this series here. Today, we're moving onto a…

This is For Somebody.

This blog post was written at about 11:30 at night, sat cross-legged on my bedroom floor with a giant cup of tea and an old Matt Redman album on in the background. It's going to be one of those blog posts that is straight out of my journal - but I figured that if you're anything…

The Colossians Series: Faithful Brothers and Sisters (Col 1:1-7)

Colossians - a letter from Paul to the Church in Colossae - is one that I find myself flicking through pretty regularly, mainly due to the sheer amount of gems that we find inside of it. Any of the verses could be written on a post-it note and stuck to your wall: Paul packs so much…

Jog On: What God has Taught Me While Running.

It's Saturday morning at the time of writing this, and I am currently laying down as flat as I possibly can on our living room floor, having just come back from a run. I went for my first ever run, using the couch-to-5k app, about two years ago, and I have officially caught the running bug:…

What Makes You Beautiful.

It’s funny how the way that we look (and the way that others look) is one of the things that has become so very important to us. We spend time and energy trying to make ourselves look acceptable before we go out. We dress a certain way, do our hair a certain way, look a certain…
