Making the impossible, possible!

Never has our strap line been so apt as today! We’ve always liked, “Making the impossible, possible” ever since it came to us as a way of expressing Matthew 19:26, ‘Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”‘

Phase two of our first project started on Monday 1st August – I write this on Sunday 7th and boy, have things moved on. With a congregation of some 8 regular adults until very recently, a project with an estimated cost of £100,000 seemed an impossible dream. However, as we have seen, God has his plans for his centre in Cross Hands and has made the impossible, possible.

We are very grateful for the help and support we are getting from tradespeople who are currently working on the Redrow site. If it was not for the Redrow build going on alongside the church, we would not have such ready access to such skilled individuals and at prices that for us as individuals would be impossible. But God makes the impossible, possible.

Photos in the video below show the development that has been achieved in the past week and the entire church fellowship is excited to see how the rest of this second phase continues over the next few weeks. We’ll keep you updated so watch this space!

Redrow Give A Brick

bricks-el

Long term supporters will know that late last year UK home builders and developers Redrow gave bricks to support our first project in Cross Hands. Sitting here writing to the company’s Welsh MD to ask that Redrow might consider helping us further, I suddenly realised that I never did show you the end result of the…

Business author donates 10% to GAB: Friday Friend @AdrianSwinscoe #FF

Back in June I went to Christine Livingston’s Worklife Makeover workshop in London. It was a brilliant day, totally worth getting up at silly o’clock for. And an unexpected bonus came when I met Adrian Swinscoe. We knew each other a little via Twitter and here on the blog but as the day evolved, I…

Give A Brick goes football crazy!

Give A Brick doesn’t do long, boring application forms. We think they’re very dull! Instead, we ask for video clips. Our latest clip is from a lovely chap called Jonathan and his under 11 football team. He had a few issues with his webcam so, seeing as he lives about a 5 minute drive from…

The very next step …

The journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. I’ve always loved that quote. It empowers me to believe in the power of little things. It inspires me to just start, even when I don’t know all the details. Today, in my head at least, feels like the start of a new chapter….

Probably one of the most exciting days for Give A Brick so far …

This week has been brilliant. If you were here yesterday, you’ll have read about how we’ve teamed up with Just Giving. Didn’t read that yet? Go ahead, click here, you can come back when you’re done. So there was that. But then after all the excitement of that, we had yesterday. And yesterday, well it…

Fundraising pages are go! #FF @JustGiving

This is a really exciting day for Give A Brick. For months I’ve been dreaming about writing this post. Seriously. I’m so excited, I can’t type in full sentences! At first glance, today’s thing won’t be that big a deal for you. Bare with me though and I’ll explain. But first, the big announcement: Give…
