Catalyst Festival 2014 kicked off last night with the main meeting where we heard Martyn Dunsford encourage us further to live by faith and grace.

Martyn featured a number of incredible stories of what God has been doing all over the world and some personal stories from a vast number of years of missional work at home and overseas.

Linking the talk in with the Great Commission, Martyn expressed the struggles of human dependence on our own strength and the relief of knowing that we can do all things through God’s saving grace.

This was a powerful and encouraging time spent togather last night which was followed up by Simon and Caroline Holley this Sunday morning.

Simon preached on how God postures us so that he can breakthrough in our lives and the lives of others around us.

Focusing on four key biblical characters, Simon and Caroline unpacked the various scenarios that were experienced and how understanding their identities in God helped them to see the Kingdom of God advanced.

We’re extremely blessed to have people like Martyn, Simon and Caroline talk to us and rally us up to go from here and see God’s kingdom breakthough!
