By Rev Mark Weeden, pastor of King’s Church, Arundel, HEART’s newest Partner Church

Some people try to earn God’s favour. They do this through good deeds, or by observing religious rituals or sacraments, hoping that these will make them acceptable to God. Others try to buy God’s favour, through charitable giving, or by making a bargain with God. “If you do this for me, then I’ll do…” God quite often helps individuals who pray this kind of thing, but that is not the same as Peace with God.

Don’t risk running out of papers!

June 7, 2016 |

We had so many orders for the last issue of HEART from readers who wanted to read the articles on the EU that we ran out! Papers were posted to friends around the country and even to Christian friends in Germany.

One pastor delivered an extra 200 papers to every home in his district with a small church team.

Our review of David Hathaway’s ‘Rape of Europe’ DVD (‘Is the EU in biblical prophecy?’) resulted in his ministry receiving 400 orders and having to have more copies made. Read More

Is there more to life than ‘this’?

March 25, 2016 |

In association with the 6:19 Trust

In all our lives there are moments when we stop and ask ourselves this question.  The problem is knowing what the ‘more’ might look like, and where it might be found.  So Turn The Page is a new free app that delivers two 60-second stories each week to help the enquirer find the ‘more’ they’ve always longed for, and to point them to Jesus as the only one who can satisfy this longing.

Poetry corner

October 8, 2015 |

Clearly the last issue did not provoke enough people to send letters, so this time we have room for readers’ poems!

Rights

What’s right about everyone’s rights stealing mine

What’s free about what cannot be spoken

Am I the only one who finds it not quite right

That my “rights” are wrongs but “theirs” are alright Read More
