Tables are one of the most important places of human connection. We often feel most fully alive when sharing a meal around a table. Therefore, we shouldn’t be surprised, to find that throughout the Bible, God has a way of showing up at tables. At the centre of the spiritual lives of God’s people in both the Old and New Testaments, we find a table: the table of Passover and the table of Communion – the Lords Supper. This table of fellowship is what Jesus invites us to with Himself and then, in turn, we invite others to fellowship with us at the table. This sermon series will help us practice the rhythms of this table of fellowship and ensure we grow both in our spiritual lives and as a community.
We are Rooted
At Rooted Fellowship we believe that God has beautifully designed us for fellowship, that we have been wired for community. In our current fast-paced, tech-saturated, attention-deficit-disordered culture, we can often find ourselves believing that we are independent and that we don’t need anyone. This couldn’t be further from the truth. We need relationships. A relationship with God the Father, through Jesus the Son by the power of the Holy Spirit. This relationship then connects us to others, what the Bible refers to as God’s Family and the beauty of Gods Family is that it’s made up of individuals from all walks of life, from every race, nation and language. Our hope is that Rooted Fellowship would continue to be a safe space where people might come and experience the beauty and love of God and by grace, be woven into the rich diverse tapestry that is The Church. We are Rooted Fellowship.
We strive to see a world awaken to the wonder of God and his transcultural church. We are a community focused church, that seeks to reflect the diversity of our city through the power of the Gospel by being:
A life centred and saturated around the Truth of the Perfect Birth, Life, Death, Resurrection, Ascension & Return of Jesus Christ, affirming Him as Lord and Saviour.
(1 Corinthians 15:1-4; 1 Corinthians 15:12-19; 1 Peter 2:22; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 4:15; John16:28; Acts 1:9)
As the Gospel transform the individual life of a person, we want to see a multiplying effect of that in the lives of others and we believe that happens best in the making of disciples.
(Matthew 28:18-20; 2 Timothy 2:2; Ephesians 4:11-16)
Is a view of community that reflects, embraces and enjoys the diversity of its context, and by the power of the Gospel transcends it and creates one new community in Christ.
(Ephesians 2:14-16; Romans 12:3-5; Revelation 7:9)
