Series “Being the people God called us to be”

A grace centred community

Galatians 2:11-21

Speaker: David Wall

This evening we will be continuing our new evening series, “Being the people God intended us to be”. This week, David Wall shares his thoughts on being a grace centred community and suggests that, because of false teaching in some of our churches, there may need to be some caveats. The series is intended to challenge us about how we actually live as Christians both in and outside of the church.

A Baptismal Service

Acts 2:38 – 41

Speaker: Simon Downing

Believer’s baptism is a very special moment on the journey of faith. It is a moment when God’s presence and blessing meets us, and when we make our personal commitment of faith in Jesus as Lord. It signifies the end of our old life and of being born again to new life in Christ. Normally taking place by full immersion in water, it speaks of repentance and cleansing, of being united with Christ in his death and resurrection, and of witnessing to the call of God upon our lives

Series “Being the people God called us to be”

Devoted to fellowship

Acts 2:42-47

Speaker: Derek Robinson

This evening we begin our new evening series, “Being the people God intended us to be”. This week we begin by considering what we can learn from the early church about “Being devoted to the fellowship”. The series is intended to challenge us about how we actually live as Christians both in and outside of the church.

Series “Who does God say I am?”

Born again

John 3:1-8

Speaker: Simon Downing

This week’s message challenges us all as to whether we have been truly “born again”. Jesus told Nicodemus, himself a religious man, that “No one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born again”. So being religious isn’t enough. Neither is coming to church every week. It’s all about having a personal relationship with God through Jesus.

Devotional Communion 6th January 2019 6.30pm

Devotional Communion 6th January 2019 6.30pm

Our New Year Devotional Communion today will follow the normal format but will concentrate on two aspects of The Lord’s institution of Communion: “Looking back” – in remembrance and “Looking Forward” till he comes. It will be good to come together, as a new year begins, to remind ourselves of the importance of Jesus’ death and resurrection and all that it means to us. As the hymn says this service will be “all about You Jesus – Your glory and Your fame.”

Series “Who does God say I am?”

Hope – A new creation

2 Corinthians 5:14-19, 21

Speaker: Simon Downing

Today we begin a new series entitled, ‘Who does God say I am?’ It will focus upon who we really are as believers – how God sees those who have trusted in Jesus as their Lord and Saviour – what our salvation really means. We begin this morning examining what God means when He says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come.”

“Advent IV – How great is our God”

Various

Speaker: Simon Downing

This Sunday morning we will have a specific focus on ‘How great is our God’. The theme fits with Advent, but it is a talk mainly aimed at inspiring us to pray for our community and for our evening Candlelight Service, during our time together. May it be that, as we think upon his greatness, we will pray prayers of faith. God bless you all. Simon

Series: Going right in a culture that has gone wrong

“Created and significant” (Psalm 8)

Speaker: David Wall

This evening we continue with our series on “Going right in a culture that has gone wrong. Tonight, we will be looking at how Psalm 8 reminds us that we were created by God to look after His amazing world. We are meant to use God’s resources wisely – something that we haven’t done very well in many cases.

“Advent III – From ancient times”

Isaiah 9:1-9

Speaker: Simon Downing

This morning we will be continuing with our Advent series as we listen to the words of the prophet Micah as He looks forward to the coming of a great ruler. We now know that this ruler is indeed our Saviour, the Lord Jesus. Micah makes it clear that the origins of this ruler are from old, ancient times and that this ruler will be a shepherd for God’s people. Micah also reveals that this ruler’s strength comes from God and that one day, God’s perfect order for the world will be restored through Him.
