Sermons by Chris Justice
In a special service for Mothering Sunday we had four contributions. Gill Shaw spoke about the work of WellFound, and the transformation in the lives of women and children in West Africa through the provision of clean water. Gill is a professional photographer and trustee of WellFound. WellFound is a water and sanitation charity founded in 2005 by a member of the church…
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. We saw how the well-known verse in Philippians 4: “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” can be applied to resolving the conflict which had arisen between two members of the church, Euodia and Syntyche.
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.
On 23rd September we continued to study the letter to the church at Philippi. Chris Justice spoke from Philippians 4:4-9 where Paul writes “Rejoice in the Lord always”. Chris encouraged us to seek joy in our lives and our church.
On 29th April Chris Justice continued our short series looking at the Holy Spirit, speaking on the metaphor of the Holy Spirit as living water.
On 18th March we were joined again by our good friend Chris Justice from Hope Church in Beaconsfield who drew together some of the threads of our discussions over the last few weeks. In particular he reminded us that the truth of the Word of God needs to be the foundation for everything we do.
On 18th February Chris Justice from Hope Church in Beaconsfield spoke from Luke chapter 18 about the importance of praying and not giving up. As we consider the role of church in mission, this is an important reminder that everything should be underpinned by persistent prayer.
On Sunday 19th November, Chris Justice came to speak about a topic which is often closely linked to prayer: fasting.
