I have frequently had to work out when Deeper happened and have to dig through various sources to find out.  So the definitive answer is here:

First there was ‘The River’ which was a monthly Friday night worship event from 2001-2003.  Then Deeper started as a monthly Sunday evening service running 10 months of the year (taking summer off) which ran from 2003-2012.

Opening with a video taking people from the business of everyday life through scripture to rest and calm.  Then JJ led people through a meditation on a bible passage (Luke 8:40-53).

After some worship, some pre-recorded testimonies were shown of people sharing stories of how God had spoken to them or led them in certain situations.

Deeper: Renovation Jan 2010 “Projection”

Continuing Renovation theme this covered some very tricky ground.  Many of us don’t feel that God loves us.

Our life experience is not that we’re loved with an everlasting love.  We don’t feel lavished upon.  We don’t feel like the apple of anyone’s eye – let alone God’s.

But the scriptures say: “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

But often we don’t believe this.  Listen to it all here.



Deeper: Renovation Nov 2009 “Ungodly Beliefs”

The premise for tonight’s theme of Ungodly Beliefs was that “Things appear to be true based on the facts of our experience but are false based on the word of God”, for example

  • there is something wrong with me
  • god doesn’t love me
  • knowing likes me
  • I’m a failure
  • I can’t trust anyone

Listen to the full podcast for why these are false beliefs and how to tackle these things!

The format of the meeting was to give people plenty of time to think about these things, write some thoughts and feelings and then try to address these through prayer, meditative worship and receiving prayer ministry from others.

Deeper: Renovation Sept 2009

Start of a new season under the title Renovation.  During this season of six meetings we will be looking at ways of renovating our heart, our life and our spirit.  We must desire our heavenly Father to shape our hearts and mould them to be after him; to take our lives and rebuild them into wholeness; to gather up our broken fragments and, like the artist who pieces together a mosaic, make them into something that is beautiful.

20090920-deeper01 Tonight was the start of this process of looking at what is going on inside us so that we can better resemble Jesus.  Using a number of passages from the old and new testament Gordon and Jenny demonstrated ways in which God wants to change our hearts, our inmost being, from stone to flesh and how Jesus brought these promises to us and it wasn’t just promises for ancient Israel.

20090920-deeper06During the service a heart shape was tiled onto a board at the front.  During the worship set that followed the talky bit everyone had the opportunity to take a tile, write on it and smash the tile as a symbolic step of getting rid of the hardened heart we all have.  There was also an opportunity for prayer ministry.
