You may have experienced the challenge recently of roof tiles on your home falling off due to the high winds we have experienced, or fence panels become uprooted. The power of the wind is amazing! I recall walking on the Brecon Beacons in my youth and as I reached near to the summit of Pen y Fan, the highest point in that area, it was so windy that I couldn’t stand up: I had to crawl to the ordnance survey marker!

We have had some windy days recently and this has brought to mind the double meaning of ‘Ruach’ in the Bible. This word not only means wind, but also Spirit. In Hebrew the Holy Spirit is the Holy Wind. As I found in my mountain scrambles, it is very hard to walk against the wind and it is tiring and exhausting to walk against the direction the Holy Spirit is wanting to take you. In our Bible study group recently, we discussed Jonah and he is the classic example of someone who tried and look what happened to him!

Commitment for Life Logo

Sharing God's Love in a practical way has always been our aim, whether that be overseas or in our local community. We support overseas mission projects via Commitment for Life. We also support Caring at Christmas, Children's Hospice South West, St Peter's Hospice, Nailsea Food Bank and other local community projects by raising funds through special events and offerings.

What's it all about?

Church Membership is the way in which Christians who have made their home in the local church are encouraged to express their commitment to that congregation of God’s people.

Who are they?

Well Church Members are not Super-Christians, just ordinary people who meet regularly to try and make sure that the continued life and witness of the church is in line with how God wants it to be. You can still be effective within the life of the church without being a member, but only members have a vote at Church Meeting, and are therefore the people who, as a body, make decisions.
