Teaching.

We believe that the Bible is our authoritative guide in all matters of faith and practice. We therefore place great importance on regular teaching from the scriptures.

 

Next series: 2 Corinthians.

April - August 2021

 

This summer we’re preaching through (almost) the first four chapter of 2 Corinthians. A bit like Philippians did, 2 Corinthians will help us to see (and imitate!) the kind of mindsets Paul and Timothy had in the midst of considerable challenges. We won’t face identical challenges to them, but there’s much we can learn from them! And the letter gives us rich stuff about God and His ways for us to get our teeth into.

 

Each week we’ll be thinking about the same verses in the online service as in the in-person service, but don’t worry if you’re attending both: you will hear different sermons at the two services. 

 

There are various ways for us to engage with this part of Scripture together in addition to the sermons: use the booklet (in your devotional time? Or while the kettle boils? Or ...?); and/or join a City Group discussing it; and/or simply ask each other over a walk, meal, or text message: “What has God been saying to you through 2 Corinthians?”

If you didn't receive a devotional booklet but would like one, please get in touch with the office, including your address, and we'll send one to you. 

 

 

Current series: Easter 2021

From 25th April, the sermons will look at 2 Corinthians, zooming in on chapters 1-4. More details about that nearer the time. In the meantime, there are a few sermons on a variety of topics:

28th March: Jon – Ephesians 2: "In Christ - Freedom from Shame"   Listen   Watch

2nd April: Jon – Good Friday: "It is finished"  Listen   Watch

On Sunday evenings, during our in-person services, Daniel's currently preaching about "The Fear of the Lord". This is being accompanied by InConvo episodes so that all of us, whether or not we're attending the in-person services, to learn more about this wonderful doctrine. Join Daniel and Kit as they have a chat:

 

Previous series: Stories from the Storm.

January - March 2021

 

This series worked through a series of biblical "Stories from the Storm": Hagar, Joseph, Rahab and many more. All these people experienced stormy circumstances and yet they all experienced God's amazing grace and kindness. They are not the heroes of their beautiful stories: God is.

Available resources:

  • Sermons (10-15 minutes),

  • InConvo – a weekly podcast episode, in which the preacher joined with a couple of other people to chat further about the week's focus.

A few talks focussing on aspects of Christmas.

 

Previous series: Philippians.

September-December 2020

 

Through the autumn we looked at Paul's letter to the Philippians. It's a fairly short book, so we put together two reading plans – one that takes you through the whole book in seven days, and another in just five!

Below are:

  • sermons for this series (recordings of the live sermon from the online service on Sunday mornings)

  • InConvo: a series of podcast episodes where the preachers take a longer, chatty look at the week's theme

  • extra blog posts taking a look at a topic related to the themes of Philippians.
