Message on Creation and Community- 16th July 2017


Colossians 1:15-20

In todays’s message, one of our elders, Colin MacNeill, spoke on the subject of “Creation and Community.” Reflecting on Paul’s rebuttal to the perceived spiritual elitism of Gnosticism contained in his letter to the Collosians, Colin explored the theme of how Christ holds all things together, and how this affects our relationships, not only with God but in our calling to a church community.

The cafe is an important part of Newhaven Church’s outreach to the community and we hope that it has served this purpose well.

We would like to thank all of those who have come to the cafe over the years, and all of the staff and volunteers who have made it a success.

Further information on the cafe, including opening hours is available in our cafe section.
