5 “And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. 6 But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
7 “And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. 9 Pray then like this:
By Martin Morrison For many Christians it is a much bigger problem than we realise. You will find it amongst young and old; single and married; rich and poor; educated and uneducated; men and women. It can cause you to become greatly discouraged or overwhelmed. [...]
Series: Spirit-filled, by Rosie Moore Like it or not, spiritual warfare is the daily reality of every Christian. You and I are called to be soldiers, prepared to fight the good fight of the Lord Jesus who has enlisted us to serve in his army [...]
By Martin Morrison I will keep this one shorter. The reason being that someone asked me whether I was paid per word for my devotions!! Our passage is Romans 8:14 – 17. In Romans 8, Paul tells his readers that if they are in Christ, [...]
By Martin Morrison Some years back there was a BBC TV Series called “Life Laundry”. It was a pop-psychology series on how to make your life and home more organised. Then I saw a best-selling book called “How to De-Junk your Life”. The sequel was [...]
By Martin Morrison. It was all somewhat embarrassing. Decimus ,the Roman unbeliever, loved teasing his Christian neighbour Numerius, this time whilst Numerius was pruning his orange trees in the back garden. They lived side-by-side on the Via Latina in the middle of Rome. “So tell [...]
PLEASE NOTE: We will no longer be uploading resources three times a week.
Please join us for a new and extended Sunday service which includes activities for the kids and a once a week household devotion for all!
Parents and guardians!
As we enter a new season/term we are going to change things up a bit!
Most of our children will be starting some form of schooling – so time in the home will be limited, but we still want to partner with you as you make disciples of Jesus in your home.
We will continue to load a video each week which will be a bit longer and teach from the gospel of John.
Alongside that video will be links to various activities and worksheets for our pre-schoolers and grade 1-5s.
Our CrossRoads team will also load a bible study booklet that our Gr 6&7s can work through on Sundays and during the week on John’s gospel.
The resources will be loaded the Friday before the service so you have time to print and prep.
It would be helpful if you can watch the video and work through the activities with your children, children learn best by talking and asking and answering questions which is hard for us to do via video!
If you have any questions or your children have any questions please feel free to email us:
Fional@christchurchmidrand.co.za for pre-schoolers and grade 1-5
Dudum@christchurchmidrand.co.za for the CrossRoads age group
Bible Tots and Starfish class
Ellen and Rene, two volunteers who normally teach the Bible Tots and Starfish class will be loading songs and lessons on a WhatsApp group for the parents of this age group.
Please email Fiona your cell phone number if your child is younger than 4 years old and you would like to receive these lessons. firstname.lastname@example.org
Church@Home and our life groups will be studying the book of Hebrews.
Every Monday morning we will load a family devotion on the same Hebrews passage.
It will include a short Bible study, games, prayer ideas and a few other surprises!
Choose a day and time that you and your family can sit together for no more than 30 minutes and do the devotion every week.
Ask your children to give it a fun name and enjoy!
You will need a little bit of time to prep each week but we will keep it simple and fun. It will be a great habit to have as a family.
Contact us if you’d like to know more about our various support groups: Divorce Care, Griefshare, Boundaries, Bipolar: Down Together, Care Connect and ARC (Addiction Recovery in Christ)
Please remember to keep giving during this time.

“A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you and were helped by you will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not on marble.”
Charles Haddon Spurgeon
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11: 28 – 30
God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.
C. S. Lewis
If you’re not part of a life group, you should be. Christians are not saved to live alone, we’re saved into a family (Ephesians 1:1 – 14). Why not sign up to a life group?
