The Kingdom of God – 9th May

What a wonderful blessing it was last week to be able to gather again in person to praise God together at our Open Air Service. We give thanks to God for the good weather last Sunday and that he seems to be working with us in matching the right weather to the right service format

The Judgement of God – 2nd May

Today is rather different as we have the option of our usual virtual service or another outdoor live service although of course you could join in with both – I will let you figure out the logistics. This is part of our review to ensure we make church as inclusive as possible. Either way it is a real blessing to be able to worship together.

Todays theme is the “Judgement of God” on which Catrin will be expanding during the service. We are all equal in God’s eyes. The service also includes communion so please be prepared for the on line version or you will need to bring your own bread and “wine”/grapes to the live service.

The Christ of God – 25th April

The format for our service this week is an online live Zoom service starting as usual at 10.30am. I’m leading the service and Peter Thatcher will be bringing us a message from Romans on the theme of ‘The Christ of God’. This Sunday also sees us begin the external launch of the Try Praying initiative. If you’ve passed the church this week you will have noticed the large Try Praying banner outside of the church. In the service we’ll be hearing more about how we can get involved in this exciting prayer outreach initiative.

The Servant and Love of God – 18th April

Welcome to our virtual gathering and thank you for joining us.

My prayer for you all is that as we worship, pray, and listen today, you will be filled once again with the certainty of God’s love for you, your family and friends and His guiding hand over your lives.

Chris and Richard will be leading us in a time of intercessory prayer, Lucy is bringing our reading and Wayne Carlson will be unpacking the next in our preaching series from the book of Romans. This week it’s Romans 13:1-10, ‘The Servant and the Love of God’.

The Forgiveness of God – 11th April

Welcome to our virtual service.  Whilst it was great that many were able to meet and take communion together in the church yard last Sunday, some felt unable to do that.  To them, and those widespread through the UK and beyond our shores, these virtual services are, quite literally, a “God send.”  Today we continue in our series looking in depth at the book of Romans.  Tim Williamson, out minister, will be unpacking the final verses of chapter 12, ‘The Forgiveness of God’.

The message will, I believe, give us hope and encouragement for the coming weeks as the country begins to return to something like normality.  We don’t know what this new normality will be like.  The coronavirus pandemic will have lasting consequences, not only on many people physically but also mentally.  Some will continue to suffer from the so called ‘long covid’, some, bereavement, and some economically.  They may have lost their job or had to change their work.  More than ever, we shall need to turn to God for the strength we need.  Many will be praying, some perhaps for the first time.  We need to keep and encourage others to “try praying”.

This service was recorded before the sad news of the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip.

Easter Sunday

We welcome you on this wonderful Easter Sunday, and trust and pray this day will be very special to you as you celebrate with us the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! In Luke 24:1-6 (NIV) we read

On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; HE HAS RISEN

Good Friday

Welcome to our Good Friday service of reflection. The service is suitable for all ages but doesn’t have material specific to age and stage. We will be taking communion as part of the service so it would be wise to get bread and wine or juice ready before you press play so that you can take part without interruption.

The Gifts of God – 28th March

Today we celebrate the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem on a donkey just a few days before his cruel and barbaric crucifixion. The crowds of people lining the streets in jubilant celebration and praise were most probably oblivious to what was coming in a matter of days. In just the same way that on that first Easter Saturday following Jesus’ death the majority of those same people didn’t know the glorious resurrection was also coming!

So we gather virtually to remember and celebrate Palm Sunday today and lift up our praise to the Lord for the cross of Christ and all that this means for us as forgiven, grace-filled and Holy Spirit filled children of God. We are gathered to offer up our prayers and to listen to the voice of God through the scriptures. We gather to learn more of God’s gifts in us and how we can use them to bring glory to him and people to Jesus.

The Mercies of God – 21st March

This Sunday, as we continue in our Year of Prayer as a church, sees us launch an exciting new outward focussed prayer initiative called ‘Try Praying’. Some of you will have already received the Try Praying resources and others will be receiving it later this week. There’s an explanation of how we can get involved with Try Praying in todays service.

After a break for our series in Prayer Matters, this Sunday sees us restart our series in the New Testament book of Romans. Cherie will be helping us explore the first two verses of Chapter 12 around the theme of Transformation. The famous evangelist Dwight L Moody said that, ‘the bible was not given for our information but for our transformation.’ As we engage with the God’s word, as we worship and we pray may we all be mindful that whereas change is inevitable, transformation is a conscious choice we make. Today may we choose to allow the work of the Holy Spirit to change what we were so that he may transform us into what we were not, for the sake of his Kingdom and his glory.
