This Sunday Trevor spoke on the Privilege of Prayer. We looked at 1Peter 2 verses 1-10. Communion with God in prayer should never be assumed but treasured. How amazing that the God of the universe, the one who full of glory, has invited us to come and pour out our hearts to Him. Prayer is a privilege that if we not take advantage of, we rob ourselves of much joy and peace.
This morning we had our promises service. Where we renewed our covenant promises with God and with each other. Steve then introduced our new preaching series on “Prayer” that will take us up to Easter. Today looking at Matthew 6, verses 5-15
This morning Trevor will be continuing our Christmas preaching series based on well-known carols. This morning we‘ll look at Away in a Manger.
Probably the first carol most of us learned growing up.
The most important birth in history!!!
Today Steve starts our Christmas preaching series based on well-known carols. This morning we looked at ‘O come, O come, Emmanuel‘ and the seven names of Jesus recorded in this very early carol. As we look forward to Christmas, let‘s praise Jesus Christ, who is the Branch of Jesse, the Wisdom of God, the Lord of Might, the Key of David, the Bright and Morning Star, the King of Nations, Emmanuel - and so much more!
Today Peter brings us the last in our series, ‘Direct speech encounters with God’. This morning we look at Moses who tries every which way to prove he is not God’s man for the job of leading the Jews out of Egypt. Exodus 3 1-14. God has a ministry for each of us. What is ours? And do we try and find reasons not to do it?
Today we continue with our series, ‘Direct speech encounters with God’. This morning Steve takes us through Johns vision of the risen and glorified Jesus in Rev 1 9-19. John manages to quiet himself and be in the spirit despite exile and suffering. Are we able to quiet ourselves? Do we have a personal encounter with Jesus?
Today Trevor continues with our series on ‘Direct speech encounters with God ‘.
This morning we looked at Jonah. Jonah refused to obey God to go to Nineveh and instead goes in the opposite direction. He learns that disobeying God has consequences. God will always work his will, and he desires that all come to him, trust in him, and be saved. If we are obedient, we will receive his mercy, not his punishment.
Today Steve continued with our series ‘Direct speech encounters with God’. Today Steve spoke to us about the ‘Parable of The Rich Fool’. Found in the book of Luke 12 v13-21. Storing treasures in Heaven will ensure our heart is there rather than treasures on earth. Luke 12 v32-34 The Kingdom of God is eternal.
Continuing our series of direct speech encounters with God. Steve’s sermon was about Peter’s encounter with God. Acts 10 & Acts 11 1-18. We look at how god showed Peter that he accepts people from all nations. But we must rid ourselves of what isn’t Godly.
This week we continued our series “Direct speech encounters with God”, by looking at an encounter with Adam & Eve. Adam tries to hide from God after succumbing to temptation. And when Eve is challenged, she tries to shift the blame. Found in Genesis 3 1-13
The sermon ends with some wordless music that you may like to use for your own personal reflection.
Today Peter started our new preaching
series: ‘Direct Speech’ Encounters with God. In this
series, up to the end of November, we will be looking at people in the OT and NT who heard directly from God and how it changed their lives. Our prayer is that as individuals and as a church we would be expectant and open to God speaking to us by making time in our lives for listening out for him to speak. Peter starts the series by looking at Samuel one of the spiritual giants in Israel's history, but look at how it all started!
