On 29th September, Chris Justice shared his testimony of his experiences over the last few months as he underwent radiotherapy, and how God had said to him, “Be strong and put your trust in me”.
In a special service for Mothering Sunday we had four contributions.

Last Sunday Andrew spoke from Philippians 2 and asked the question “how do we actually work out our own salvation?” which Paul instructs us to do in verse 12. On 10th February, Chris Justice picked up the theme and spoke about what Jesus meant when he says “Follow me”.
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.
On 25th November, Chris Justice spoke to us from Philippians 3:13 to 4:9.

On 28th October, Chris Justice spoke from Philippians 1, v9-11, and picked up on last week’s theme of pressing on in our Christian life and not being content to tread water.
