You may remember that last year we did a series called ‘the 8 M’s’ or “The M series”, where we looked at ‘who we are’ and ‘what we are commanded to do in scripture’.  The first week of that series was Magnification; worshipping God. I have often reflected on this (and not just because I preached it). I often come back to asking myself, am I truly worshipping God? How do I worship God?

In April a handful of our youth went on a Christian leadership camp called Launch. Here is a testimony about Launch from one of the youth who went. I must admit before I went on Launch camp this year I was pretty nervous. I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect or what it would be like at all. I had only heard that it would be a good camp to go on. Little did I know that this camp would be one of the best and most encouraging camps that I would......
