Vision Service 2022

“Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.” 1 John 3:18
This week was our vision service for 2022. Chris spends some time reflecting on what God has done through the church in the last year, giving thanks for His provision, as well as introducing us to our year text for 2022 and looking forward to the continuing work in the coming year.
Susan leads the rest of the service, as members of the congregation bring their revelations from God for the new year. Pete and Nick lead our sung worship.

The Harvest is Plentiful But the Workers Are Few

As Chris is away this week, our visiting speaker is Roger Standing, former principal of Spurgeon’s College in London (and son-in-law of one of our members!). Roger speaks on the sending of the 72 from Luke’s gospel, encouraging us at the start of a new year that we should go forward in faith, even though we might not know what is ahead, and that although the work of a Christian will not be easy it will be eternally rewarding.
Ant leads us through the rest of the service with some surprising insight into surnames, whilst Mike leads the sung worship.

Together We Grow

Happy New Year! As we begin a new year, we conclude our latest All Age series on Frontline Sundays, this month looking at how Together We Grow. God did not intend for Christians to walk the journey alone, we are called to be members of a community: the church. Chris explores how being part of the church helps us hold on to hope, spur one another on and encourages us to keep meeting.
Shona leads the rest of the service whilst Pete leads our sung worship.
