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”.

Rediscovering the awe of God Part 3

EZEKIEL 10

Speaker: Simon Downing

In today’s sermon, Simon returns to the importance of us rediscovering the awe of God as we look at Ezekiel Chapter 10. In this chapter, the prophet Ezekiel sees a vision of God’s glory departing from the temple, never to return completely until Jesus himself visited the temple in the New Testament. God’s holiness required that He leave the temple because the people had so defiled it. God had to completely destroy what people had perverted in order for true worship to be revived. We must commit ourselves, our families, our churches and our nation to follow God faithfully, so that we never have to experience God abandoning us.

The First Sunday – Devotional Communion

Leviticus 16:20-22

Leader: Simon Downing

This evening we will be holding our monthly Devotional Communion around the Communion table. Our text for this service is Leviticus 16:20-22 which describes how the sins of the people were placed on the head of the scapegoat. This was an annual event that took place on the Day of Atonement. This evening as we come around the Communion Table, we remember that Jesus gave His own life and shed His own blood as an all-time sacrifice for our sins. Please join us if you are able.

The First Sunday – Family service

The wise man and the foolish man

Matthew 7:24-29

Speaker: Simon Downing

Today is our monthly family service where we hope to see lots of young people and families joining us. In today’s talk Simon will be reminding us that “wise” people build their life on the rock of Jesus. There is no firmer foundation. To build on the rock means to be a hearing, responding disciple, not a superficial one who talks the talk but doesn’t walk the walk. The story of the wise man and the foolish man is a Sunday school favourite but it also contains an important message for all of us. Most people do not intentionally build on a false foundation, instead they just don’t think about their life’s purpose. Part of our responsibility as believers is to help others stop and think about where their lives are heading and to highlight the consequences of ignoring Jesus’ words.

Isaiah 43:1-7

Speaker: Derek Robinson

This morning Simon will be taking a well-earned from preaching and so Derek will be sharing God’s word with us. Over the past two weeks, Simon has reminded us of our need to reawaken our awe of God and be more aware of His presence in our lives. This more will be listening to our truly awesome God as He speaks to us through the prophet Isaiah. In today’s passage, God reminds us of His purpose in creating mankind. We were made by God and for God. We were made to bring glory to Him. God’s reminds us that, “He formed us, He created us, He redeemed us and He called us by name”. His words resonate in our hearts as He says to us, “You are mine!” Please don’t miss this message.

Rediscovering the awe of God Part 2

Revelation 4

Speaker: Simon Downing

Today Simon will be bringing us the second message on this short series, entitled, “Rediscovering the awe of God Part 2.” In today’s reading from Revelation Chapter 4, we are given a glimpse in Christ’s glory. We are taken through john’s vision into the very throne of heaven. God is on the throne and is orchestrating all of the events that John will record. Contrary to what you may sometimes feel, the world is not spinning out of control: The God of creation will carry out his plans as Christ initiates the final battle with the forces of evil. John shows us heaven before showing us earth so that we can focus on God’s greatness. As we read John’s words, we are compelled to bow down in awe of Him. He gives us the strength to stay strong and not be frightened of future events.

Rediscovering the awe of God

Ezekiel 1

Speaker: Simon Downing

Today Simon will be bringing us a message based on Ezekiel’s vision that revealed God’s absolute moral perfection to the Israelites who were then captives in Babylon. God made it clear that He was spiritually and morally superior to their corrupt and compromising society. Consequently, because God is morally perfect, He can help us to stand firm and live our lives in a way that honours Him rather than compromising with the world’s values. When we focus on His greatness, when we stand in awe of Him, He gives us the strength to overcome sin and to reflect His holiness.
