What happens when we fail?

Joshua 7

Speaker: Simon Downing

This evening we return to series based on the Book of Joshua. Up to this point in our series, Joshua and the people of Israel had experienced only victory. Chapter 7 is the story of defeat. Thirty-six men were dead, and the army was frightened. No doubt, Joshua was confused and puzzled. Certainly he expected an unbroken string of victories, a winning season, as it were. Of course, that was God’s desire, too – for Israel then and for us today. God provides every avenue to make victory possible. At the same time, though, He does not make defeat impossible. We make choices that can lead to victory or failure. Too often we choose to go our own way, and sin is the result. But remember, a failing in life does not make life a failure. When we experience failure, it does not have to be a lasting defeat.

Series: Equipped for the battlefield: principles for Christian living

Equipped III: the supremacy of Christ

Colossians 1:1-14

Speaker: Simon Downing

This morning we return to our series, “Equipped for the battlefield: principles for Christian living” as we study Colossians 1:15-20. This week Simon will be preaching on the “Supremacy of Christ”. Just as today, many people in Colosse had misconceptions as to whom Jesus actually was. In this passage, Paul directly challenged these misconceptions as he makes one of the strongest statements about the divine natures of Christ found anywhere in the Bible. Stand by for a powerful message.

How to overcome obstacles

Joshua 6

Speaker: Clive Bennett

This evening our message is entitled, “How to Overcome Obstacles” – There are many times, as individuals or a church, when our desire to move forward into blessing is thwarted by circumstances. We know what we want to be. We know where we want to go but the obstacles we are facing just seem so overwhelming and discouraging that we seem to always be floundering around in weakness and defeat. Our study this evening is that well known story of the fall of Jericho – the first obstacle that Joshua and the children of Israel have encountered since crossing the Jordan which stands in the way of entering into all the Promised land has in store. We will consider together what lessons we can learn from this event which can help us overcome the obstacles that stand in the way of successful conquest in our lives?”

Series: Equipped for the battlefield: principles for Christian living

Equipped 1: God’s battle

Exodus 17:8-16

Speaker: Stuart Filby

Recently Simon has felt led by God to do a new series for our morning services, called: ‘Equipped for the battlefield: principles for Christian living.’ The series begins as Stuart introduces us to Joshua as he leads the Israelites into battle. But the battle is won, not by Joshua’s astuteness but by the Lord and as Moses lifts his hands up to the throne of the Lord.

How to get from here to there

Joshua 1

Speaker: Derek Robinson

Our new evening series also features Joshua, now the leader of the Israelites following the death of Moses. This series will be focussing on the book of Joshua, which is a book about possession of the land of blessing. However, the people of God soon found out that the land could be possessed only when they walked in obedience to God’s direction and when they depended on His strength, not their own. This book becomes a clear picture of our walk with God today, as the teaching will try to bring forth.

Series “Being the people God called us to be”

Loving your neighbour

Mark 12:28-34

Speaker: Doreen Garbett

The Commandments of Jesus challenge us in our everyday life and tonight we will be considering what it means to put God first, others second and ourselves last.  Is it really possible to fulfil the Commandment of Jesus to love God and then our Neighbour as ourselves when the worldly view encourages us to be self centred and first?  The answer to this important question will have an impact on how we live our life and how others see us as we live and walk with Jesus.

A bruised reed I will not break

Isaiah 42:1-6

Speaker: Simon Downing

SUNDAY MORNING – I have changed the subject of this morning’s message to Isaiah 42v1-6, as I believe that the Lord has a word of comfort for us through that passage. Simon.
