feels like home
C3 Feels Like Home
// at the table + in the Temple
// at home + in the House
Acts 2.46 ABCV And day after day they regularly assembled in the temple with united purpose, and in their homes they broke bread [including the Lord’s Supper]. They partook of their food with gladness and simplicity and generous hearts.
Our hope and vision for you is that you come to know Jesus as your saviour and Lord, that you find community in our Church family and discover God's purpose for you, to live a fulfilled life in step with the Holy Spirit.
We have a wonderful welcoming culture at C3 Queenstown and in all C3 Churches around the globe. Our culture and value of 'feels like home' is this - home is a place where you can be yourself, become who God made you to be. Jesus meets you where you’re at and welcomes you with His embrace. We hope you feel a real sense of belonging, the presence of the Holy Spirit and His steadfast, unfailing love. We aim to be inclusive and genuine; we love connecting and doing life well together. We are a family, of all generations, who value, appreciate and encourage each other in all stages of life.
As followers of Jesus and collectively as a Church we believe everyone has a role in the family, serving and intentionally curating an environment of love and connection both on Sundays and in our gatherings during the week. On Sunday we give space for the Holy Spirit to move, to worship together and are encouraged in the Word. And at our Dinner Party Gatherings during the week we gather around the table, share a meal, share our journey, open the Word and we have the opportunity to go deeper with people. There is a richness of togetherness and discipleship that helps us go from strength to strength in our walk with Jesus. It also gives us a place to land when everything feels like it’s falling apart or trials come our way.
In the Bible, in the book of Romans Paul continues with this encouragement:
Romans 5:1-6 "Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory. We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners."
We will continue to intentionally pray into and curate our gatherings to show Gods love, be Gods love, both in homes and as a body gathered on Sunday. We would love to you to be part of that, both serving and inviting people in, to join the table and join your Church family - where it feels like home.
