“Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.”Psalm 119:105
We encourage memorising the bible because when we remember in our mind and heart, it can shape us in our daily life and equip us to help others.
To memorise one bible passage a month.
How to participate.
At the start of each month we will post a passage to remember, broken down by age categories. You have one month to memorise the passage. When you are ready, record a video of you reciting the passage, with your eyes shut (no peeking!) and no help. Send it to our church office to show you have nailed it and we will give you a prize for your great effort.
There is reward in having scripture in your heart and mind. But for those who like a little extra sweet help, We will give all successful efforts a chuppa chup (or equivalent) for each passage memorised.

Romans 8:38 “nothing can separate us from God’s love”
Romans 8:37-39 “In everything we have won more than a victory because of Christ who loves us. I am sure that nothing can separate us from God’s love.”
“35 Can anything separate us from the love of Christ? Can trouble, suffering, and hard times, or hunger and nakedness, or danger and death? 36 It is exactly as the Scriptures say,
“For you we face death
all day long.
We are like sheep
on their way
to be butchered.”
37 In everything we have won more than a victory because of Christ who loves us. 38 I am sure that nothing can separate us from God’s love—not life or death, not angels or spirits, not the present or the future, 39 and not powers above or powers below. Nothing in all creation can separate us from God’s love for us in Christ Jesus our Lord!”
