Theology Days ReportThey were called Theology Days but perhaps should have been called Fellowship in the Word Days. These were two days held recently at Nettle Hill when a couple of dozen of us gathered to consider the subject of Covenant.
The current trend is to meet together for times of encounter with the Spirit, or for learning how to 'do the stuff'. A much neglected activity is to meet together in the Word, to enjoy a corporate ministry of the Spirit in the scriptures.
And what a feast we had. I was so blessed. We considered the, for a number of us, very familiar subject of Covenant but with a difference. We were treated to excellent ministry from Tony Ling, Rob Anderson & Adam McKeown as well as having good times of small and whole group discussion.
A major emphasis of Tony's ministry was that the covenant into which God has brought us is friendship with himself, and with God's people. Our hearts burned as Rob opened a veritable treasure chest of covenant truths, with an emphasis on the 'blood' element of covenant. He pointed out how there was probably a revelation by God of the blood covenant to almost all primitive peoples throughout the world. Then came Adam with the truth that covenant is the Godhead's "eternal state of being". The extension of that covenant to include us is always plural in aspect, not singular.
As we say in Yorkshire 'it was better felt that telt'. Just sign up for the next Theology Days and come and enjoy the party.

Life Together - The Big Breakfast in June
We gathered from across the country to spend the day together and enjoy a BIG BREAKFAST, WORD and FELLOWSHIP. It was an excellent day with everyone working and enjoying Life Together. We enjoyed time together in the word alongside eating together and providing fun activities for the children. This was a day which many want to repeat.
Here are a few comments from those attending:-
A great time was had at, “The Big Breakfast” by the Stanton church family. We enjoyed fun, food & fellowship together. It was just the right mix of activities appealing to everyone on different stages of their journey. The kids had a fun time too as they hung out together & ate way too many cakes as did the rest of us oldies!
It was a real pleasure to catch up with people you don't see regularly & hear all their news. Well worth doing!
We really enjoyed the day as a family, it was good to get involved in the breakfast together, the atmosphere, very relaxed definitely helped getting to know new people better.
The feedback from all coming from MCF wasvery positive, it was good to explore the word together, there was good interaction with the people.
