Last October myself and the elders went away and spent time thinking and praying through our vision and where God is taking the Vine Church. From this we feel that it is right to start actively looking for a new building for us to use on Sundays.
You might be asking 'Why do we feel this?'
In a nutshell, we have received some significant prophetic words and we feel that this building doesn’t serve us in the vision God has given us and for us to outwork this vision effectively. We feel that whilst we stay in this building (United Reformed Church) it is hindering us from being the church God has called us to be.
This building (PURC) has been a great facility for us for over 12 years. In this building we have seen lives changed and people added to the Kingdom and we praise God for that. However, a new day is here and we feel God is moving us on so that we will see more lives changed and more people saved and I think we all agree that is what we want to see.
I am reminded of the story of Abraham, although he didn't know where he was going, he knew he was called to go. In Hebrews 11:8 "By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going." - Although, we don't know the full picture yet of where we are moving to and when, I would like to encourage all of us to live by faith as we go exploring.
We are on this Journey together and now is time to Pray, Seek and Give.
Pray - Where are you calling us and when?
Seek - Explore different venues
Give - Practically and Financially
I am very excited what God is doing with us. Over the last year we have seen more people join us from different walks of lives, from different cultures and nationalities. We look forward to what God is going to do with us this coming year. We are going still be meeting of at PURC at 9:30am until God moves us forwards.
Come on this Journey with us and see what God does! If you have any questions or you feel God has spoken to you please do let us know.
