Happy Mondays - Honor
on April 17th, 2019
I started my working life as a primary school teacher which was followed by ten years working for Frontline Church. Increasingly I recognised that one of my main strengths lay in helping people through difficult times in their lives so I began training as a counsellor while I was still working at Frontline. I started training aged 59 which in itself was a challenge as I was by far the oldest on th...
Travelling at the speed of light - John Harding
on April 9th, 2019
We’ve been thinking throughout our series ‘Because of Jesus’ about our identity in Christ. How we are hidden in Him, and how as we behold Him, we start to see ourselves for who we really are. It’s a profound mystery; how we can be in Christ and Christ in us. How you are in Christ and I am in Christ. We’ve said throughout the series how we died with Christ. Somehow, 2000 years ago, you died in Him ...
Happy Mondays - Rachel

Hi, I am Rachel Marshall and I currently work for the family support charity, Safe Families for Children.

I love working with people; with children and families, with other professionals and agencies. I thrive on finding out what...
It was good for me to fail - John Harding
on March 27th, 2019
At the beginning of January as a sort of Christmas gift, I was able to go skiing in France with a few guys from church. It was to be my first ever time skiing – having never done anything like that before; no skiing, no snowboarding, not even ice skating or skateboarding.Being somewhat competitive by nature (the Lord is working on my character), and knowing Jack Mariner was to be skiing for the f...

We believe that Frontline is called to make an impact; in the city through to the nations. We desire to see the Kingdom of Heaven established here on earth in every sphere of society.

Our Values - Confident Witness
on February 20th, 2019
This week we look at the value 'Confident Witness'. We believe the gospel is both words and works. Presence and Proclamation. In an increasingly secular society we desire to confidently make a noise about who Jesus is and what he's done for us. John Harding spoke to Paul Brown to find out about his work with The Message Trust. Tell us a little bit about yourself and the work you do with the Messag...

Normal Christianity is Supernatural (Part 1) - Chris Kent
on January 30th, 2019
I remember the moment well when it began to dawn on me that there was more to Christianity than attending a church. I had been radically saved by Jesus at 15, shortly before this I was messing around with drugs, arrested for burglary and expelled from school.Initially my response to follow Jesus was an emotional reaction to His overwhelming, unconditional love. Then I had a hunger to understand wh...
The Joy of the Lord is your Strength (Part 2) - Anna Evans

In John 14 verse 12 Jesus says “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father.”In part 1 of this blog, we looked at how responsibilities can become a burden and wear us down if we hold on to them too tightly. It is important for our own health and well being to hold things lightly. In stewarding ...
