Our Father

“Our Father in Heaven, Hallowed be your name”  ( Matthew 6:9)

This morning’s sermon is a continuation from the Zoom meeting earlier, based on the Lord’s prayer in Matthew’s gospel chapter 6. Today we look at the first two words of the Lord’s Prayer “OUR FATHER”. At such a time as this, we need more than ever to know the acceptance and love of God the Father. A love that is personal and powerful in introducing us to the Father heart of God.

Sunday 3rd May 2020 – Can’t Wait to see you!

This morning’s sermon is from 1 Thessalonians 3 and looks at Paul’s concern for, and longing to be with the Christians in Thessalonica once again.  These verses show the depth of his feeling for those he knew there and his continuing burden in prayer for them. Paul’s words may express how many of us feel at this current time.   He specifically asks for three things

May God prepare the way for us to meet again

May God make us abound in love

May God strengthen our hearts

Sunday 19th April 2020 – After Easter Sunday Morning ” Open-air” Sermon

A short look at Luke 24:44-49.

Life for the disciples of Jesus did not simply end after the resurrection. Life was about to get more complicated challenging and challenging for all of them.  However, they were about to be equipped with all the help and power they needed.

“Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance for the forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. And behold, I am sending the promise of my Father upon you. But stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.”

Sunday 5th April 2020 -Psalm 27 The Lord is My Salvation

In such challenging days as these, we look for direction and help in God’s word. This morning we look at Psalm 27 where the Psalmist affirms his confidence and trust in God. This wonderful psalm is a song of great assurance and comfort. It is also a war song, a song of celebration and a song of final and certain victory.

For David the Psalmist, The Lord is His focus in all His trials. The Lord is the one in whom he trusts. The Lord is His Confidence and assurance.

Sunday 29th March 2020 -‘The Lord’s my Shepherd; I shall not want ‘

This morning we look at the wonderful personal relationship David the psalmist has with the God he knows as the Lord his Shepherd’

This is the time of year when the sheep are most dependent on the Shepherd. After a hard winter, and the lambs are due to arrive, the sheep need the shepherd more than ever. When times are tough, when food is scarce when conditions are harsh, and predators plentiful, the sheep need the Shepherd. Does this mirror our dependence upon God right now?

Wednesday Prayer Meeting Wednesday 25th March

 Tonight we come together to pray about  and look at the first part of Psalm 91

Psalm 91:1-2 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”

Sunday 22nd March 2020 – A Video message from Genesis 18

In particular we will look at the challenging question that God asked, “Why did Sarah laugh?”
