HE IS RISEN! On this special Sunday, Andrew retold the story of the first Easter Sunday with the help of a missing Easter Egg….
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.
On 7th April we held a special service to open the new front of the church building, and to rededicate ourselves. We were delighted to be joined by some of the builders, designers and other crafts-people who had made the new front possible. Outside on the patio Andrew reminded us that our building is a gift from God, a tool which God has placed into our hands to enable us…

On March 24th we were delighted to welcome back Simon and Ursula who were sent from this church to work in Ilford. We always look forward to their visits when they report back on their work and on what God is doing. A recording of the sermon is available on request. Please contact email@example.com.
On 17th March Andrew spoke from 1 Peter chapter 1, and concentrated specifically on the reasons which Peter gives for why we should be holy.
On March 10th Andrew continued our series on “becoming children of God” by speaking from Peter’s second letter, chapter 1. He spoke about how we can seek to become more like Jesus in this life.
On 3rd March we were delighted to welcome Dave Criddle from Gold Hill Church. Dave continued our study of the book of Philippians, speaking from chapter 3, verses 4 to 14. The theme was we shouldn’t define ourselves by what we have done, but rather by what Jesus has done for us.
On 24th February, in a mission focussed service, Paul Bosson spoke about God’s promise to bless all nations through Abraham, and about Jesus’ great commission to his disciples. He went onto talk about how we still have that commission today wherever we find ourselves, at home, at work or overseas. The recording starts with Andrew speaking to Paul and Alison…
On 17th February Andrew picked up on one of the points introduced by Chris last week, and asked how do we really commune with God?
