Our lives have gotten so cluttered up with things we think we “should” do, we can’t figure out what we were meant to do.

Here’s what is so great to me about this passage: Jesus sees that there is work to be done. He sees the crowd. He knows people need to be healed, demons need to be cast out, and lessons need to be taught. But He still tells His disciples to get in the boat, and once there, He falls asleep. Yes, the needs of the people are urgent, and their requests (or cries) for healing must have been compelling, but Jesus knows that He needs to stop and rest.

If even Jesus needs to stop and rest in the midst of a chaotic world, with all of the important things He has to do, don’t you think we need rest, too?

Muslims are our coworkers, neighbors and friends. But Christians don't always know how to build relationships with Muslims.

Fouad Masri provides practical ways for Christians to initiate conversations and develop relationships with Muslims. He offers insights into Muslim culture and helps Christians understand and relate their Muslim friends. Masri addresses seven common questions that Muslims ask about Jesus and the Christian faith, providing sensitive answers that winsomely guide Muslims to Jesus without arguing or awkward debating. With real-life stories of fruitful conversations and genuine relationships, Masri helps readers see Muslims as Jesus sees them, without fear, with love, hope and expectation.

You don't need a Ph.D. in Islam to share your faith with a Muslim. You just need the heart of an ambassador. Discover how.

We are a vibrant, growing church in Stockton-On-Tees and everyone is welcome here, no matter what your background or experience.

We have two Sunday services each week, one at 10:30am and another at 6:15pm, each one lasting about an hour and a half. We know that it’s not always easy visiting a church for the first time however, we’re a friendly bunch of people and you can be certain of a warm welcome here.

I became a Christian over 30 years ago after being invited to the Church by Ruth, who became my wife. We have 3 children Becky age 27, Jonny age 24 and Sarah age16, as well as 2 Border Collies! I am a retired GP but as a Christian you never actually retire. I head up the Church’s International Mission Action Group and have helped organise a number of mission trips to Uganda and Kenya. Ruth and I love to show hospitality and the Ingleby Barwick Home Group meets at our house. I love encouraging and helping people to grow in their walk with the Lord. In my spare time I enjoy exercising, gardening, photography and restoring my old MG sports car.
