This Sunday @ BCUC
This Sunday is Pentecost – a great celebration of the sending of the Holy Spirit to the early church, breathing life and power to a group of people who had been given a big vision to change the world but no real clue how to do it.
Pentecost 2020 is Breakthru time. As the world continues to grapple with the massive upheaval COVID-19 has brought, we need the gift and power of the Holy Spirit as much as we ever have. When the Holy Spirit first came to believers they began speaking in different languages and people from many nations heard the Good News of Jesus in their own heart words. This week a new video of Amazing Grace was launched with Christian’s singing in their heart language from 50 COVID-19 affected countries. It’s a great prelude to Sunday’s worship. Enjoy and please join us live on Sunday! – Benji

Momentum Webinar Series – Thursdays in June
A partnering of Generate Presbytery and Propel Network
Tune in each week as we look at our core business of Evangelism, Discipleship, Raising Leaders and Church Planting and Renewal. In each webinar we will hear from local and national practitioners sharing their thinking around questions like… “What are we learning in this moment?”, “How are we reshaping our understanding” and “What key lessons will we be taking into the future”. Benji will be speaking during Discipleship week. see the Generate facebook page for more information and to register.
We finished our four weeks of zoom youth with some amazing online origami and teaching from the parables of Jesus. It’s been a great time of connection but we’re all keen to meet face-to-face. After a planning break this Pentecost weekend we encourage youth to engage with the YouTube live service. Then stay tuned for meeting in person soon.

24 Hour Prayer Event Wrap-up
Thanks for all those who participated in the 24hr of prayer and those who have shared what God has been saying. A great encouragement was the church elders meeting that happened after communion. A strong sense that the Spirit is saying to be at peace and have patience for the future.
