One more move

Thursday, 21 July 2016 14:06
When we chose the name The Journey Church, we never thought that we would move like we have been. Maybe this is a way of reminding us that we don't settle until Jesus comes. Maybe God is reminding us of what the church really is - redeemed people! It has…

First meeting in new venue

Monday, 04 July 2016 10:02
These are very special days for The Journey Church family! Yesterday we met for the first time in our temporary venue in the Mackenzies home. We squeezed more into into their home than we ever have before. The fellowship was sweet and we did a lot of reflection on Jesus…

Happy 2016!

Monday, 04 January 2016 14:04
It is hard to believe that we are already in 2016. My guess is that this thought makes some of you like a kid in a candy store as you just say, “bring it on!”, and others of you are maybe saying, “Stop the world  want to get off!”  Regardless…

What is a disciple?

Tuesday, 05 May 2015 20:01
Looking back to our service this past weekend, it was a sweet time of God’s presence. The band was scaled down, but God was there. As the people interacted with other, God was there. As the Word of God was proclaimed, God was there. No doubt about it, God with…

Constantly giving thanks!

Monday, 20 April 2015 15:29
Yesterday we were in Part 2 of a series that we have called Genuine: A look at Paul's letters to the Thessalonian church. What struck me, as it does in other letters of Paul, is that Paul looks at the church and starts his letter by giving thanks to God…

Don’t waste 2015

Thursday, 01 January 2015 15:47
As 2015 kicks off, many people see the beginning of the year as a time of new beginnings, and so they make resolutions. Maybe you haven’t written them down, but you’ve probably resolved to do some things. Maybe it’s to start doing some things - like exercise or being more…
This coming Sunday there will be no church as usual for The Journey Church. Instead we will be meeting for Christmas Celebration and Braai from 10am at Plot 259a, Ibis Drive, Muldersdrift. If you struggle to find it please don't hesitate to call Bruce on 083 602 0683. If it…

Carols by Candlelight

Friday, 07 December 2012 14:56
Carols by Candle light is happening on the 13th December. We are doing this for a number of reasons.   1. This is an oppotunity for members of The Journey Church to invite their friends who do not normally attend church, to attend a non-threatening church event.   2. This…

This Wednesday, in our Life Groups, we are planning to be discussing how our Life Groups can be missional Life Groups. Below is a video that is worth watching to help understand what a Missional Church looks like and functions in the world we are in. Ed Stetzer wrote, "God is…

Delight yourself in the Lord!

Thursday, 01 March 2012 12:36
In the 1600’s, the Westminster Shorter Catechism was brought out, a statement of faith that has served the church well for many years. Its authority was the Bible. Its purpose was to help Christians in articulating what they believe. Its first point dealt with the issue of delighting in God…

Jonathan Edwards' 70 Resolutions

Saturday, 31 December 2011 12:21
Yesterday I mentioned Jonathan Edwards in my post on New Years resolutions and thought it would be interesting, if not helpful, to post his 70 resolutions for you to see. They were written between 1722 and 1723 when Jonathan Edwards was 20.  He read through these once a week and…

New Years Resolutions

Friday, 30 December 2011 13:09
It seems like this time of the year is a time of evaluation and planning for a lot of people. It certainly is for me. It is a great time to look back and evaluate how the past year was, and then to look forward to what needs to be…

Make the Most of Time - Part 1

Thursday, 03 November 2011 19:11
Time is one thing that we all share as equals. We all have 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour and 24 hours in a day. Sure, we may not live as long as the person who we know lived to 95, but a question we have…

Celebrating Jesus Not The Date

Wednesday, 12 October 2011 10:53
By Gareth BradyWell, here it is, you know, October, the time of year when everyone's commenting on how quickly the year has gone by and they just can't believe (even though it happens every year) just how fast the year has gone. It's also that time when we start to…

Words, thoughts, hearts and worship

Friday, 23 September 2011 08:36
By Gareth BradyConsider the following Scriptures and what they say about our words, thoughts, heart and worship. Matthew 6:21  -For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 15:19 - For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander. Matthew 15:18 - But what comes…

Unleashing Everyday People

Friday, 16 September 2011 11:01
