RISE & BUILD
Every person giving generously with a spirit of faith, in worship of God.
Building and maintaining excellent facilities for the glory of God.
Reaching and equipping people to have an influence in our towns, cities, nation and the world.
2023 was a really exciting year for us here at Alive. The church is flourishing with new people visiting every week and numerous decisions to follow Christ being made each month.
In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord.
And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.
God’s people have always built things in order to honour Him and facilitate the vision He has given to them, from Old Testament altars to contemporary cathedrals and church buildings.
Whenever building takes place in the bible, there are principles that God establishes for His people to follow:
Building is birthed out of vision
Building is for God’s glory
Building is for the gathering of believing people
Building is strong when done in unity and peace
Building requires sacrifice
Building needs generosity and investment
Building always serves that which is not made with human hands.
Rise and Build has always been about our future vision and not just the upkeep of buildings and resources. It is about the church as a whole investing into our future together. In 2024 our plans are to continue our investment into future generations and to sew into ‘A Day to be Alive’.
It is vitally important that our vision progresses so we don’t stand still and that the facilities and resources we own represent us well. Improving our facilities / equipment and investing into our growing vision is one way in which we thank the Lord for everything he has done for us.
