Sermons on Acts
On 20th October Andrew spoke from Acts chapter 2 about how the Holy Spirit helps us live together as the family of God.
On 13th October Andrew continued our series on living in the presence and the power of the Holy Spirit. During the sermon he refers to this painting, “Starry Night” by Vincent van Gogh.
The day of Pentecost – June 9th 2019. Andrew used the passage about the valley of dry bones in Ezekiel 37 to explain how God sends His Holy Spirit to restore the holiness of His name.
