The Road Not Taken

Today we are reflecting on a very special encounter with Jesus on the Emmaus Road. John will be exploring this amazing experience for the disciples and thinking about the roads we choose to take in our own lives. Special thanks to Rev Barbara for sharing her story ‘of life and faith’ in our ‘Open Pages’ interview series.

Palm Sunday

Today we hear again the story of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem, riding on a donkey, yet hailed as King. Rev Geoffrey Farrar helps us reflect on this special day as we begin our journey through Holy Week.

All Are Welcome (5th Sunday in Lent)

We are called to practice hospitality and to be a welcoming church. Rev Adam explores this further looking at scripture and challenges us to examine our own actions and the extent to which we welcome and accept other.

Listen Up! – Mothering Sunday

Our Lent theme is all about telling our stories and we have heard some inspiring testimonies and look forward to hearing more. It is good to talk and also good to listen. It has been said that as God created humans with only one mouth but two ears – maybe listening is more important than speaking! Rev Barbara explores this further by looking at scripture and examples from our daily lives. So… ‘Listen Up’!

Turning Tables (3rd Sunday in Lent)

Rev Adam reflects on this story where Jesus certainly disturbed the status quo. What can we learn from this story and how does it challenge us to ‘overturn the modern tables’ of injustice?

Complex Relationship (2nd Sunday in Lent)

Our relationships with different people around us – and with God – are varied and so often strange and complex. Rajie explores how we can find God through others and through scripture even in these “complex relationships “.

God is with us in Peace – 3rd Sunday in Advent

God is with us in peace, or is he? John talks about peace in our world today and how the Christmas story can relate to bringing about peace. There are hymns from the music group and Dawn, prayers from Jo and we hear some more about our Christmas appeals from Kam and Dinnie.

Coming, Ready or Not!

This week we have Music from the Music group and Matt Beckingham, opening prayers from Rajie, intercessions from Rev. Barbara and Rev. Adam preach on “The Divine Victory”.
