Normal Service Resumes Shortly

Post Image

  At QBC we have been in ‘summer mode’ for all of January, meeting in homes and parks and in various ways. Ironically its probably been more like ‘church’ than church sometimes is as we have shared meals, discussed our faith, prayed together and taken longer to just enjoy being together. But there’s a place for […]

Post Image

Q&A@QBC

Post Image

We’ve been working our way through the Sermon on the Mount and we’re up to the part where Jesus says some pretty wacky things. Actually most of its like that, but this section is particularly puzzling. In Matthew 5 he says: “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; […]

To Walk Away From Faith?

This week is our monthly ‘creative Sunday’ and we’ll be looking at the question of what keeps you going in faith when everything inside you wants to quit?
