Sermons on Communion

Communion July 2021

Chris and Lynne lead us through our Communion service for July 2021. We were unable to renew our covenant with each other and with God in our traditional covenant service in February and so this week we take that opportunity as we are on the brink of re-opening the church for full-scale Sunday services. On that note, Chris speaks about the relaxation of lockdown rules and how we as Christians can love our neighbours in the times that will be ahead where we will legally (but not necessarily morally) be able to take our lives “back to normal”.
Lynne has chosen the music for this week and also brings us an update on the inaugural Worship in the Woods held last weekend.

Communion June 2021

This week we held our first in-person Communion since March 2020. In the service Chris speaks on the meaning behind – and the lasting impact of – Jesus’ last words on the cross, as recorded in John’s gospel.
James leads the rest of the service, whilst Maureen brings us the reading.

Zoom Communion 10

This week we held our monthly live communion service over Zoom. Joining us was EBA regional minister, Beth Powney, who spoke on Isaiah 55 and brought to us her thoughts about the sovereignty of God and remembering to trust in Him even when we’re not sure what the outcome will be.
Lynne leads the rest of the service, with prayers from Pete and Sue brings parts of her response to Chris’s Psalm 119 challenge from a few weeks ago.

Thanksgiving Service 2020

This Sunday we held our Thanksgiving service for 2020 via Zoom. In our final service for this strangest of years, we look back at what God has done in our personal lives and through the church in 2020, despite what some might call some “slight problems” of the COVID nature.Chris leads us through a brief study of 1 Corinthians 10:16-17 and Karen leads the service by joining everything together.

Zoom Communion 5 John

This is a recording of a live Zoom communion service held on 20th September 2020.
In our Harvest service for 2020 Ricky Dolphin looks at the story of Jesus and the woman at the well and shows us how Jesus used an unlikely encounter to reap a harvest, challenging us to see where our unlikely situations for reaping a harvest may be.
James leads our communion and the rest of the service.
