In the first of a two part series, Nick looks at the vision for Coventry Vineyard. From the first God-given dream 20 years ago to today, Nick explains the vision and direction of our church and how Jesus is building a home in which we are “no longer strangers’ (Ephesians 2:16-22)
In the second of our series “Learning to walk through walls”, Mark Harbour talks about how the resurrection changes who we are! The invitation to live an adventurous expectant resurrection life (Romans 815-17 MSG) is an invitation to allow the same power that raised Jesus to life to break into our lives and transform us. Transformation from life controlled by the flesh, to a life of the Spirit. It is an invitation to understand what that life can be like and how we can partner with God in the process of spiritual formation.
