Overcoming difficulties in prayer part 2

10/18/2021
Struggles in prayer is something we all experience. When we add personal struggle in prayer to the regular struggles in ministry it can soon lead a Christian leader into a place of shame and a sense of failure. Truth is we don’t talk much about this as leaders together. So it is a real delight to hear Stuart Olyott speaking help and encouragement into this area of our lives. We believe this two part series is a particularly helpful series and whether you are a Church leader or not you will...

8/9/2021
In 1 Timothy 4:16 Paul urges Timothy to ‘watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers’, but what does this mean?
