‘Standing Firm In Shaky Times’ – 1 Peter

Today, 3rd September, we have launched a new teaching series on the epistle of 1 Peter.

It’s a letter written about 64-65 AD from the apostle Peter to various churches in Asia Minor (modern day Turkey) who were under intense persecution.  The main theme of this letter is about living victoriously in the midst of suffering and persecution. Peter writes to give hope in the midst of it; to remind of our great salvation in Christ Jesus. To give advice on how to live a godly life before unbelievers, then ends with a reminder that the Lord will return and restore all things.
This is a message that still applies to us today. With the ‘shaky times’ across our globe, such as terrorism and conflict; with laws that are being passed that are in direct opposition to God’s Word, it will be a reminder for us that Christ is our hope and example with the need for us to ‘stand firm in shaky times’

‘Forgotten God’ – new sermon series

forgotten-god-900x380

We begin a new sermon series this Sunday (23rd April) called ‘ Forgotten God’. Over the next few weeks we will be focusing on the Person and work of the Holy Spirit. The teaching will be slightly shorter to allow a few minutes for us to respond in various ways to what we’ve heard –  Prayer, reflection, silence, worship, discussion

Our prayer is that as we go through the series we will be increasingly more aware of the powerful Person and work of God the Holy Spirit in our individual lives and in the life of this church.

‘Meals with Jesus’ – New Sermon Series

meals-with-jesus

On Sunday, 4th September, we begin a new series looking at various meals people had with Jesus that are recorded in Luke’s gospel. We have chosen this for two reasons:

  • Firstly, it will be good to focus on a gospel again and learn more about Jesus and how he interacted with people.

 

  • Secondly, sharing meals and hospitality was such an important part of life in those days and we would like to use this autumn series to perhaps encourage greater hospitality amongst us.  Opening our own homes if we feel able, inviting people to share a meal with us and getting to know them better.
