Learning from two great pray-ers: Nehemiah and Hannah

Duncan & Julie Graham | 20 August 2017

Today, our family service focussed on prayer. Duncan spoke on the example of Nehemiah, then following a time of worship, Julie spoke about Hannah's great example of prayer. Two very different people in different circumstances, but both can help us as we learn the power of prayer and step out in it ourselves.

Shining like stars

Ed Evans | 6 August 2017

Having just returned from our church camp, Ed shared some of what was talked about there and what He felt God was saying to us as a church for this summer.  He focussed on two passages about us shining with the light of Jesus in the world - Matthew 5:14-16 and Phil 2:12-17.

God with us at work

Duncan Graham | 23 July 2017

Duncan talked about what difference it makes to walk with an awareness of God's presence in our work - whether in employment, work in the family or serving in church and community life...
Can I do my job AND be a Christian?
What would Jesus do in this situation?

God with us at home

Dorian McCree | 16 July 2017

Are we willing to make changes in our lives?
Dorian started with the example of the Shunamite woman who made a permanent room in her house for Elisha.
We need to think how our own lives and our homes are used for what The Lord wants from us.

Walking aware of the Spirit's presence

Lisa Howard | 11 June 2017

Meeting the disciples again

Julie Graham | 30 April 2017

His first words were - Peace be with you, the disciples were still in a state of fear.

It was VICTORY, NOT defeat.

It gave New Hope,  New Joy,  New Purpose, New Power and finally NEW PASSION & BOLDNESS.

This is what we need to proceed, to encounter JESUS

First person to see the risen Jesus

Ed Evans | 23 April 2017

Luke 24  13-35

First person to see Jesus was Mary Magdalen but we can look at the wrong person, in her case, the gardener.

Next on the road to Emmaus, the 2 disciples again did not recognise their companion. It required Jesus to open the Old Testament which project forward to Him.

Living at peace with one another

Julie Graham | 9 April 2017

Romans 12  v17-21

The last in our series on Romans.

Our natural desires are not always God's plans. It is not our place to take revenge - that si God's position to do.

We should always forgive, although this may be difficult (but not imposible\) for some who have suffered real abuse.
