Welcome to Derriford Church Blog

‘For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink.’ (Matthew 25: 42.)
Some statistics: Since we began to support the North Plymouth Food Bank in September 2012 I have been able to deliver 17 car-loads of provisions, one load almost every month. These contributions are gratefully received at the distribution centre and I am assured are a lifeline to those struggling to make ends meet in crisis situations. The average load has been made up of soups, baked beans, tinned fruit, tinned ready meals, pasta, rice, tinned vegetables, fish and stews, cartons of UHT milk, sugar and teabags, jars of cooking sauces and preserves. In every load there are also other items, some quite unexpected.

This giving is undertaken as a Christian response to Jesus’ words quoted at the start of this article. We never see those who receive, or experience their gratitude for help in trouble. But Jesus sees and is glad that we take heed of his words.

Even if we are ourselves on a tight budget it is no real hardship to at least add one extra item for Food Bank to our shopping list. Many are even more generous in what they feel they can afford to give.

Have you contributed to Food bank? Boxes are provided in the Church and in the entrance to the Hall.

If not, may I ask you to consider whether you can

manage to give something from now on for as long as the need continues?
And to those who have been filling the boxes so generously, thank you for taking Jesus’ words seriously.

– John Goodspeed

Jesus said “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink” (john7:37). How amazing is our God, who provides everything we need when we need it.
Sometimes it is difficult to hold onto the confidence that God will give us what we need (not necessarily what we want!); sometimes we turn away from His Biblical Promises ways and won’t face up to the fact that we need to seek Him and follow His path; other times we won’t really search God’s will or be willing to apply this to our lives. If we know that God will provide spiritual waters to our spiritual thirst- we must also be pre- pared for the outpouring of his spirit, when we seek God’s help. Those of us who are thirsty and go to Je- sus to drink the water of which He is speaking, will be filled, washed and empowered by the Holy Spirit – so be ready and drink.

Romans, Chapter 12 and verses 9 to 12 says; ‘Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honour one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervour, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with God’s people who are in need. Practise hospitality.’

Whilst at present we do not have a Minister, that does not mean that we can relax! Rather we must see to it that we do not forget what it means to be the church of God at Derriford. With or without a Minister, these words from Paul abjure us as a church to be practising all these virtues at all times.

Article – A brief look at Spiritual Growth – Ray Gerry

Spiritual growth can be compared to a seed, a building, and a child,because each one requires our active participation. When a seed is planted, it needs to be watered, fertilised, and protected.
When a building is erected, it needs to be furnished and maintained. When a child is born, it needs to be fed, cared for, taught, and disciplined.
So, although effort has nothing to do with our salvation, it has everything to do with our spiritual growth.
Now Paul, in his letters, spells out three efforts that we need to make if we desire spiritual growth in our lives.
The first involves DECISION, for we need to decide to feed the new man, whilst starving the old.
The second involves RENEWING, for we need a renewing of our minds by allowing God to change our thoughts.
The third involves CLOTHING, for we need to clothe ourselves daily with the character of Christ.
Fortunately the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit will help us in our quest for spiritual growth, provided of course we are willing to call out to HIM for that help.

Last Sunday, we were encouraged to bless one another. However, some issues are so crucial that until you have resolved them you cannot move forward or enjoy God’s blessing in your life. Joshua faced such an issue when he stood before the towering walls of Jericho, the strongest city in the Promised Land and the first that had to be conquered. We read: ‘When Joshua was near Jericho he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him with a drawn sword in his hand and Joshua asked him, “Are you for us or for our enemies?” And he replied, “Neither; but as commander of the army of the Lord I have now come.” Then Joshua fell face down to the ground in reverence and asked him, “What message does my Lord have for his servant?” The commander of the Lord’s army replied, “Take off your sandals for the place where you are standing is holy.” And Joshua did so’ (Joshua 5:13-15). So, what is your Jericho? What’s the one big battle you must win in order to fulfill what God has planned for your life? Some battles can only be won on your knees. Before His victory at the cross, Christ, Who is our example, spent His hardest night in Gethsemane praying, ‘…Not my will, but yours be done’ (Luke 22:42). Are you intimidated by the size of the challenge? Do you think you don’t have what it takes? Does it feel like you have been going round in circles and getting nowhere? Take time out. Get alone with God, and stay in His presence until He gives you His plan. Then say yes to it, He will empower you and you will be truly blessed

Nixon’s Farewell Letter

Dear Friends,
This is our opportunity to say thank you for the wonderful send-off last weekend. It was lovely to see so many people and to praise God for everything he has accomplished here through Derriford Church. We would like to thank you for your kind gifts and cards, both from the church as a whole and from individuals. My lovely locomotive picture will take pride of place in our new manse (when we eventually get there!)
It would be true to say that moving on is also tinged with sadness as this has been our home and the church has been our family for the past 8 years. We have lived through some highs and low together and shared some amazing moves of God. It’s not always been easy, but I’m sure many of you will agree it has been a time of growth. Some people speak poorly of Plymouth, but we have found it to be a great place to bring up a family and have really enjoyed the opportunities that the city and surrounding areas have given.
As I said in my sermon on Sunday, a ministerial vacancy is not something to be scared of. It is a good time to take stock and re-focus. It is also an excellent time to try out new gifts and experience new things. Despite what some may say, churches do grow during times of vacancy and I know this is something that Derriford can do.
Please pray for us in our new challenges in Salford as we will be praying for you in yours.
Goodbye and God Bless.

With love in Jesus
Stuart, Helen, Jonathan, Chris, Charis & Naomi
