Set Free – Unpacking what it means to be “born again”

Sunday Mornings – 6th January 2019 to 24th February 2019

In John 3, Jesus states that all who want to be his disciples must be “born again”.  The purpose of this series is to improve our understanding of what is involved in someone being “born again” and entering into the full freedom of a proper new birth.

Reading contemporary Christian literature it is easy to get the impression that all that is needed to “born again” is to say a “sinner’s prayer”. We will be exploring how being “born again” is a process that involves the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

A series of study notes will be issued weekly to accompany the series. They will be designed for personal study and reflection, and also for study in our home groups.

…and then what?

Sunday Evenings – 13th January 2019 to 27th January 2019

In this Mini-series we answer questions along the theme … and then what?

Most people have only the sketchiest idea of what happens the second after we die. Do we float around with wings and take harp lessons? Is there really a hell? Will there be existence as we know it? Will we know and recognise our friends here, there or ‘in the other place’? Is there going to be a second coming of Jesus?

1 Corinthians

Sunday Evenings – 10th February 2019 to 17th March 2019

Dear Corinthians…

A letter written about 2000 years ago to the Church in Corinth turns out to be surprisingly contemporary! In this series we see how God wants His Church to flourish in a multi-cultural and secular society with more than its share of social and moral problems – sound familiar? Join us as we look at the first 7 chapters.

The Prayer Course

Sunday Mornings – 10th March 2019 to 14th April 2019

We take a journey together through the Lord’s Prayer as we seek to understand more about prayer and to discover it’s blessings and acknowledge the challenges.

John’s Good News about Jesus does not have a traditional Christmas story. When it comes to Jesus arriving on planet earth, John unwraps the big picture and dazzles us with his portrait of Jesus as he shouts from the roof tops who Jesus is and what it meant that God became a man.

Evening Series – 2nd December 2018 to 23rd December 2018

God became a man? What does this mean?

How could it happen? And how does it affect us today?

Go Deeper – 1 John

Sunday Mornings – 27th May to 24th June 2018

“Stay with what you heard from the beginning, the original message. Let it sink into your life. If what you heard from the beginning lives deeply in you, you will live deeply in both Son and Father.” 1 John 2 v 24-25

Deep-sea diving is the act of descending into deep water and remaining there for an extended period. It is used, for example, in fishing for exotic sponges, coral, and pearls that could not be caught by other means; in examining and repairing the underwater parts of ships that cannot be reached in other ways; and in recovering valuables from sunken ships that would otherwise be undiscovered. With this in mind, we have selected five topics under the overriding theme of “Go Deeper”. So much in today’s society appears superficial and “shallow”. “Deep” implies something has substance, is profound and enduring. There are truths that God reveals when we “go deep” into his Word; 1 John encourages and exhorts us to go deeper in Christ to catch and discover amazing truths we would otherwise miss.

Larger than Life – Elijah and Elisha

Sunday Evenings – 27th May to 24th June 2018

The Old Testament books of 1 and 2 Kings introduce us to two extraordinary Men of God; Elijah and Elisha. They were voices for God in a divided nation led by largely ungodly Rulers and their stories challenge us about the way we live in our own divided and post-Christian society.

Arriving – reflections from Graham Chastney | Day 40 | catching the wave | Focus on 40

I’ve just finished walking to the top of a hill, this involved a number of stages.

The first stage was to get to the right place at the bottom of the hill.

There were also a couple of intermediate tops before I reached the ultimate peak.

I then needed to get back to the start of the walk to pick up the car.

Climbing this hill was, for me, part of a greater goal which involves climbing lots of hills.

We are just finishing off our 40 day journey, and that’s an achievement we should celebrate. For some of you it’s been your first “hill” and to you I’d like to say a special “well done”. For other’s this has been another “hill” as part of your greater journey., even so “well done”

We’d love to hear your stories of what God has done as you’ve travelled this journey. This may have included amazing answers to your prayers. You may not have received an answer to all of your prayers, we’d like to encourage you to keep perceiving in your prayers. Perhaps you’d like to pray with someone about these prayers, the prayer team is always willing to pray with you on a Sunday.

As we conclude this part of our journey it’s worth reminding ourselves that prayer is not about results, it’s about relationship, Jesus is always walking with us as we climb our “hills”.
