Ideas for when you host someone in your home

The best kind of hosting does not involve the best décor.  The heart of the ideas in this article is simply to make your guests feel welcome and comfortable.

Ideas of things to include in the room they will stay in:

  • Clean linen and towels, including hand towel and face cloth with a bar of soap.
  • A jug of water and glasses or bottled water.
  • Bin and tissues.
  • Hanging and cupboard space with some hangers.
  • An adapter available in the power point that can take 2 pin plugs.
  • A mirror and chair if possible.
  • A little gift.
  • Simple flowers and snacks.
  • An extra blanket for winter.

Other things to think about:

  • Ask them what they like for breakfast.
  • Show them where stuff is in the kitchen so they can help themselves if necessary.
  • Try to keep times of chatting short so as not to drain your guests.
  • Offer them a spare set of house keys so that can get in if you’re not around.

If you would like to put your name on the list for hosting someone in your home, contact info (011) 616 4073 or info@cornerstonechurch.co.za.

Table Tennis Tournament

Written by Taryn Herbert

 

The Table Tennis Tournament on Saturday was lots of fun. Each player could compete in a category that suited them. There was a great vibe in the hall as many came to watch and support. It was such a great excuse to come out on a beautiful Saturday morning. Fun was had by all!

Keeping Up with the Joneses

Written by Alan Jones

Many years ago I was preparing to do something very big, and very foolish.  I had convinced myself that God wanted me to do it but it took the wise words of Leon van Daele to prevent me from making a big mistake. Read more

SunUp in Braamfontein

Written by Phil Quinn

Ah! The excitement of new horizons is in the air. We kicked off with our first Sunday meeting at Uptown last week. ‘twas wonderful. We had a load of friendly new visitors and we all crammed ourselves full of cake and coffee. Hooray! God’s hand is clearly on what is happening down Uptown way and we cannot help but feel his approval and encouragement. And so we continue to take ground.

Sundays @ Uptown caters for families with kids and those who are around on the weekends. Thursdays will remain our main meeting for the time being but it’s great to expand our sense of community and permanence in Braamies.

Uptownies really appreciate visits from Centralies, so please consider a visit. 6.30 for 7pm on Thursday evenings. 9.30 for 10am on Sunday mornings. Come see what God is doing in the city! We’re lovin’ it.

Mini Jobi Jol – 2011

Written by Greg Bennett


25 June 2011

It all started on a very, very cold Saturday morning at 9:00am. All of us were freezing but excited for what the day had in store for us. We were all relishing the chance to spend the day in fellowship, praising, worshiping and meeting with the Lord and for some, the amazing chance to experience God’s power and grace for the first time!
