The book of Nehemiah is a case study in overcoming life’s challenges. Wave after wave of pain pounded on the shores of Nehemiah’s life, but he kept standing s ...

Being a Generous Soul
During theSummer Term 2017, we are looking at a course of seven bible studies, prayers and activities which encourage us to love a generous life.

Based on a Lent Course, each of the seven sessions has been designed to last around 60 minutes. Thematically, the seven studies weave in an understanding of God’s generosity, God’s ‘indescribable gift’ (2 Corinthians 9:15) to us. The main studies, however, draw ideas on generosity ...

Your Kingdom Come - The Lord's Prayer
The Lord's Prayer in whatever form or language it is said, is being prayed somewhere in the world every moment of every day. Rooted in the words of Jesus himself, it is a summary of prayer itself with expressions of worship, confession and intercession as well as meditation and wonder at the King whose reign we seek to bring to earth and into the communities where we live. Prayer is an awesome gift as well as a humbling privilege - to be able to ...

Live Like You Mean It
Are we the genetic sum of hundreds of generations of people? How far is it nature or nurture? Is it all those genes and DNA that make us who we are or is it the way our parents brought us up? If we build God into the picture, we cease to be an accident and a random set of coincidences and become a specially created, and deeply loved, child of God - and it will affect the way we think about life and the possibility of God having a plan ....

Close Encounters of the Godly Kind
In the coming weeks, we are going to be looking at people in the Bible who encountered God. Actually, that is one of those slightly obvious statements because the Bible could simply be described as the one big encounter which people have had with God through thousands of years. We shall talk about Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, through to the apostles and those who encountered God in the person of Jesus Christ. And then the world of the early Church w ...

2015 Summer Life Groups - Words Of Life
John was one of Jesus' closest friends ... he referred to himself as "The Disciple who Jesus loved" not out of some sense of being his favourite, but out of amazement that Jesus could love him, John, and to carry on loving him despite all that he knew about him as a person. In the Gospels, John is thought of as a reflective young man, a writer who was the author of a Gospel, three letters and the vision of the end times that we know as The Book o ...

Life Groups - An Introduction
In Matthew 28:19/20, after being raised from the dead, Jesus left final instructions with his disciples and commissioned them for the task ahead: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” The instruction is pretty clear … “make disciples” (as opposed to “get people ...
