A letter from Roger Jones:

Dear Friends - Pentecost is coming, one of the most exciting times of the year, yet perhaps the most neglected.
Spirit Works book cover, a resource for individuals, groups and churchs
Launched in February 2017
Our book SPIRIT WORKS, based upon the power and gifts of the Holy Spirit, has got off to a good start, and several churches have already booked us to lead an evening/day/weekend, or enquired about the possibility.  This subject has always been at the heart of our work and ministry, and for a few more months you can still obtain SPIRIT WORKS at the special introductory price of £7.99:  Order now

Spirit Works is one of the best introductions to the work of the Holy Spirit I have come across. Written in a clear and readable style, illustrated with personal examples, and offering lots of points and questions for group discussion, it’s ideal for individual study or for small groups and worship groups to work through together. Roger, Helen and Annie write from long experience of helping people engage with the Holy Spirit in simple, practical yet life-changing ways, and their wisdom shines through each of the chapters. If you want to go deeper with God but are perhaps a little unsure about how to set about it, this is the book for you!
Revd Dr Alison Morgan, author, speaker, associate of Mathetes Trust, formerly of ReSource Trust.

Still on the Holy Spirit theme, you can now download an MP3 file of our free song of the month from "Saints Alive!" and the "Roger Jones Hymn Collection": BREATHE ON ME BREATHE OF GOD

As well as "Saints Alive!", many of our other musicals have Pentecost themes or content, ie. PHARISEE, WILDFIRE, ROCK. The music and recordings for all of these are available online: CMM shop

Tim Jones' latest Backing Tracks album : COME, HOLY SPIRIT is a collection of well-known worship songs that speak of the life and work of the Spirit.
