SONGS FOR ALL SEASONS
Mornings – 14th January to 4th February 2018
As one singer song writer once put it, “Sad songs say so much!”
We somehow find a way to sing, or at least have a song for all seasons of our lives. Happy or sad, in love or struggling with life, somehow, we sing!
Psalms is the song book of the Bible. 150 songs expressing an incredible range of thoughts, feelings, hopes, beliefs and experiences. We will share a short series from some favourite Psalms to help us sing when we are winning and, yes when we feel like we are losing it!
WHEN THE DEVIL KNOCKS
Evenings – 14th January to 4th February 2018
In this 4 week series we look at who the Devil is, and how he attempts to attack our lives in various ways. We will find that as people of faith in Jesus we can have the strength and confidence to resist him.
1 Peter 5 v 9 “Be alert! Your enemy the Devil prowls around…resist him, standing firm in the faith”.
PRAYER THROUGH LENT
Mornings and Evenings – 11th March to 25th March 2018
Many Christians will readily admit that prayer is one of the most difficult things we attempt. The disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray. Sounds very spiritual, but they then fell asleep praying at one of the most important times in Jesus’ life. At least they asked Jesus to teach and they did learn to prioritise prayer!
We believe that prayer is the privilege of communion with God. As we celebrate our 40th anniversary, we honour our founder members who prayed for this church before it was ever built.
So how do we inherit their legacy? How do we pray?
What I really, really want to know is…
Mornings – 8th April to 22nd April 2018
The questions most non-church folk ask are simple and direct – but so profound that many find them difficult to answer. They reflect the age in which we live, where everyone’s opinion of truth is valid, as long as it doesn’t give offence.
This is an occasional series to answer some of these questions. It is designed both for enquirers and to help those who’ve been asked those questions, but didn’t know how to respond.
