Sundays @ 6






New Hope, New Start, New Life.
 St. Gabriel’s Church

Join us every Sunday evening
as we journey together on the road to recovery from everything that life throws at us through studying the Bible, praying for and with each other and just a general time of fellowship and supporting each other.
There is tea coffee and a general relaxed atmosphere where we can talk to and listen to each other.
ALL WELCOME

The last Sunday of the month we have a fellowship meal with Communion.


Recently we went through eight Recovery Principles
Based on the BEATITUDES (Matthew Chapter 5).

1. Realize I’m not God; I admit that I am powerless to control my tendency to do the wrong thing and my life is unmanageable.
‘Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.  Matthew 5:3                                                        New International Version - UK (NIVUK)
2. Earnestly believe that God exists, that I matter to Him, and that He has the power to help me recover.
 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.  Matthew 5:4 

3. Consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ’s care and control.
  Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.  Matthew 5:5

4. Openly examine and confess my faults to God, to myself and to another person whom I trust.
 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God Matthew 5:8

5. Voluntarily submit to any and all changes God wants to make in my life.
 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Matthew 5:6

6. Evaluate all my relationships, offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me and make amends for harm I’ve done to others when possible, except when doing so would harm them or others.
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Matthew 5:7
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Matthew 5:9
7. Reserve a daily time with God for self-examination, Bible reading, and prayer in order to know God and His work for my life and gain the power to follow His will.

8. Yield myself to be used by God to bring this good news to others, both by my example and by my words.
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:10

Currently we are looking at the seven 'I ams' in the Gospel of John, having recently finished studying the 'seven signs' also in John's Gospel.   


All Welcome
