Thank you for joining us for what is an unusual way of ‘doing’ church.

God bless you. Simon

Amidst all the concerns about coronavirus, Brenda sent us this encouraging word.
You can feel secure even in the midst of cataclysmic changes around you, through awareness of My constant presence. The One who never leaves you is the same One who never changes  and promised to be The same yesterday, today and forever.
As you release more and more things that you hold dear into My care, remember that I will never let go of your hand. Herein lies your security, which no one and no worldly circumstances can ever take from you

Just Worship – The beauty of the Lord

Psalm 27:4

Leader: Simon Downing

This Sunday will be a ‘Just Worship’ evening – where we worship God simply for who he is. This evening will be centred around the words of Psalm 27:4 in which the Psalmist says that he asks one thing of the Lord – that he may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of his life to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord. This is something that we can all endorse in our lives and the life to come. DO NOT MISS THIS.

The Revelation Churches: Son of Man

Revelation 1:12-20

Speaker: Simon Downing

In today’s sermon, Simon will be leading us into a new series based on the Revelation Churches as revealed to the Apostle John in a vision. We can only imagine what went through John’s mind as he turned towards the voice he heard. It was probably not exactly the same sound as he remembered Jesus’ voice to be (John described it as of a trumpet, Revelation 1:10). Yet he knew from the voice’s self-description (Alpha and Omega) that it was Jesus. This was John’s opportunity to see Jesus again, after knowing Him so well during the years of His earthly ministry. And yet as He turned and saw Jesus, John was so overwhelmed by what he saw that he fell at His (Jesus) feet as if dead. Of course, Jesus comforted John with a compassionate touch. Jesus tells John, as He tells, “Do not be afraid”.
