Sunday 24 January 2021.
This Sunday though we have the immense privilege in participating in the baptism of Simon Norel. We along with Hans and Nicole will together promise to point Simon to Jesus, to the power of the cross and the beauty of grace. On Sunday we will very visibly and physically celebrate all that Jesus has done for us and promises to do for Simon too.
To make sure that as many people as possible are able to make it, we have hired the PCYC building across the road. Though we will have more space and a higher capacity, they do have the same requirements as us. You will again need to use their QR code and wear a mask. Natalie and Pieter will be at the entrance to help you with the sign in process.

This week we continue our time in the Psalms of Ascent by looking at Psalm 127. This Psalm is one of only two that are attributed to King Solomon. In many ways, this Psalm echoes the wisdom attributed to Solomon elsewhere, pointing to the sovereignty of God over both the lives we build and the homes we make.
Psalm 127 challenges us to step back and consider the limitations of our human endeavors. What we do with our hands and what we do in our homes is all by the will of God. May we, like those who first sung this song, recognise that without God, all we strive for is in vein.
This week we remain exclusively online, with the intention to return physically next week.

Songs of the Steps - Psalm 126 - Past, Present & Future Joy
This January we pick up where we left off last January, in the Psalms, or more specifically the Psalms of Ascent. Picking up at Psalm 126, we continue to journey through these songs that were sung by the Jewish pilgrims as they made their journey to Jerusalem for the festivals that littered their calendar.
The focus of the song that is Psalm 126, is a simple but life altering three letter word: Joy. Given the year that has been and the lockdowns we face, joy is possibly the last thing on many of our minds. As we will see though, it is something we can find even in the the darkness of the past, present or future.
