In our morning sermon series we will be studying the shape of discipleship. We are all shapes and sizes! Is there a shape of Discipleship that will fit us all? By definition a disciple is a follower. A Christian disciple is a follower of Jesus Christ. Christian Discipleship is the process by which followers grow in Jesus and are equipped by the Holy Spirit to overcome the pressures and trials of our present life to become more Christ-like. We may think it is about learning and growing in faith, but the bible tells us that discipleship is about an entire lifestyle that impacts everything we do. Discipleship is about making other disciples! What shaped disciple are you becoming? Who is your disciple?
We need to keep our discipleship and church life simple. A short series of three sermons will help us focus the foundation, transformation and belonging to the church of God. We conclude our term with a series of a journey to the Cross and beyond as we hear the familiar Easter account.
On the second Sunday when we have Holy Communion the children and young people will start in their groups and join us for the Communion circle and the last part of the service. Two of these services will be All-Age with contributions from our young people and their leaders.
This Time Tomorrow or TTT is often marked on our preaching programme. On these Sundays we will hear from a member of the congregation about what they do This Time Tomorrow. We also use it for an opportunity to share answers to prayer or say what God has been doing in our lives recently.
Evening Service at 6.30pm
For our series in the evening we will be looking at the book of 2 Kings. It is a narrative history and prophecy concerning the affairs of the divided kingdoms Israel and Judah. In the chapters 1-8 God performs amazing miracles through his prophets as he sends out his message. The two kingdoms are far from God and lost in their confusion and sin. The book’s purpose is to demonstrate the value of those who obey God and the fate of those who refuse to obey him. God’s prophets bring hope to this lost, yet chosen nation. What will God say to us and our generation?
Our regular monthly café-style services continue on the second Sunday each month where we consider topical issues over a cup of tea or coffee.
