Brotherly Love - the power of prayer
by Sarah Sedgwick on November 23rd, 2022
Never underestimate the power of a praying parent, sister, brother, grandparent or friend.  Satan is targeting children of Christian families and luring them away with the promise of fulfilment, acceptance and a new identity that’s applauded and celebrated by the world.  We know that our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of t...  Read More
New Artists join the Rev12 Project
by Sarah Sedgwick on October 27th, 2022
Just 8 weeks after the Rev12 Project launched we are excited to introduce the work of two new artists, Ravonne and Suri.  What connects these two artists is the fact that they both came from Christian homes; Ravonne a Pastor's Kid in the States and Suri the daughter of Youth Pastors from Venezuela.  Sadly, as young adults they both left their faith to pursue the empty promises of the world.It's gr...  Read More

What's the dumbest thing......?
by Sarah Sedgwick on September 22nd, 2022
I thought it would be interesting to ask a group of Christians who have experienced, or still experience, same sex attraction (SSA) about their experiences in church.  I asked the tongue in cheek question – what’s the dumbest thing someone’s ever said to you in church about SSA?I was not ready for the answers I received, it opened my eyes to a level of offence and ignorance that must be changed if...  Read More
An international community
by Sarah Sedgwick on September 21st, 2022
One thing that I found the hardest when I chose to follow Jesus was that my choices meant leaving the past behind.  The LGBT community I had run with all my adult life no longer embraced me.  My choice to follow Jesus meant I was shunned, I found myself in that void of not being able to look back, yet as I looked forward, I saw no obvious way to fill the void.  No offence meant to my church family...  Read More
