What’s In Your Hand?

As Chris is away this week Susan brings us back to a question that we first asked ourselves in 2019, what is in your hand? That question has taken on far more meaning than we ever thought it could have done over the last year and a half, and because of that Susan asks us to reconsider our answer. After this pandemic is over, what have we got to offer God and our community?
Ant leads the rest of the service as he interviews Emily about her work as a nurse in the NHS and Mike leads our worship this week.

Catching the Wave: Education

We continue the Catching the Wave series as this week Chris looks at education, how many educational establishments were set up by Christians and using Christian principles and how we can support those that work in education now.
James leads the rest of the service as he interviews somebody he should know very well, and Kath brings this week’s reading.

Catching the Wave: God the Father

This week Chris begins our new series based upon materials produced by Christian charity There Is Hope, “Catching the Wave”. The first week focusses in on God as our Father, who welcomes us home no matter how or when we think we’ve disappointed him.

Lynne leads the rest of the service where we have an interview with the Hurley family.

Easter 2021

Christ is risen! He is risen indeed, hallelujah! Once again we are facing Easter under lockdown and are unable to meet in person to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. But we can still celebrate together. This year Chris looks at the period of time between Jesus’ crucifixion and his resurrection through the eyes of those that witnessed it first hand and asks whether we are living in despair or living in hope for things to come.
Andy leads the rest of the service with Easter worship chosen by Pete.

Prophets of Advent – Gabriel

Chris concludes our Advent series looking at the Prophets of Advent by looking at the message that Gabriel gives to Mary.
James leads the rest of the service, introducing carols and bringing us an update on our Mission of the Month, BMS World Mission. Sally brings our prayers and Freya does the reading. Pete has chosen the songs for our worship time at the end of the service.

Resurrection 2: Resurrection Evening

On the evening after Jesus rose from the dead, two disciples were travelling to Emmaus. On the way they met someone they didn’t expect to see. Meanwhile in Jerusalem, the remaining eleven apostles were gathered trying to decide what to do next when suddenly something amazing happened. Susan explores the effect these events had on the disciples and their continual effect in our lives today.
