On the first Sunday in Advent, Louise spoke to us about how perfect love drives out fear, picking up on Jesus’ command at the start of his team talk in John 14: “Do not let your hearts be troubled.”
Good Friday, April 2020. A recording of most of the service which was held over Zoom.
On 15th March, Chris explained the parable of the ten servants in Luke chapter 19 and asked how we can apply it in our lives.
Chris Justice looks at the difficult parable in Luke 16 (the shrewd manager) and explores what it might mean for us.
On the second Sunday in Advent Andrew spoke about how Jesus’ birth fulfilled God’s promises which are recorded for us in the Old Testament.
On the first Sunday in Advent Chris Justice spoke about how we should relate to the Holy Spirit with particular reference to the Holy Spirit’s role in the events of the first Christmas and his ongoing role in creating new life.
On Sunday 3rd November Chris Justice continued to talk about prayer, this time talking specifically about how the Holy Spirit helps us pray. During the talk Chris refers to this song “Touch the sky” by Hillsong UNITED.
On 27th October Chris Justice spoke about how spending time with Jesus is the most important thing. Chris spoke in the context of prayer, and he explained what the Lord’s prayer teaches us about praying. Chris starts by reading from Luke chapter 10, verse 38 onwards.
Andrew used the account of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday to remind us we are called to be a people of praise. We discussed why and how others have tried to stop the church from praising and witnessing over the years. And we also discussed what might stop us declaring God’s love to the communities in which we live.
After the busy-ness of Christmas week it is important to remind ourselves again of the true meaning. Chris Justice led us through a quiet contemplative service, reminding us of the miracle at Nazareth: impossible creation; amazing favour; and incredible attitude.
