Focus Sunday – Gareth Davies

18th September 2016 | Gareth Davies

As today is one of our Focus Sundays, we have a guest speaker, Gareth Davies, from an organisation called ‘CARE’. Before starting his message, Gareth tells us about what ‘CARE’ are and what they do.

He then reads from Amos 2 and we are given more of an insight as to who Amos was and what he did. To help explain his message, Gareth shows us a map and tells us some of the political history in and around Israel and Judah at the time. He then breaks down the reading and shows us how it is relative to life today. The startling fact is that what we hear about in this passage, is still going on today.

Gareth reminds us that outside of our church walls, it is not hopeless “Out There”….we can help by getting involved and sharing our voice. We must not be scared…God will always be there to help us!

Prayer and Witness

11th September 2016 | David Bareham

Before starting his message today, David brings us a couple of points that are relevant to church and we are asked to consider prayerfully.

He then reads from Colossians 4 where we hear about instructions for prayer.

In our community of Chafford Hundred, the surrounding areas and beyond, there is a need for prayer. We are living in troubled times and the innocent and the oppressed people of this world need us to talk to God on their behalf. We must pray for change to come.

David also reminds us of the teaching we had in the “Sheep Fishing” series in an attempt to get us into the right mindset as to how Christians should appear out there in the real world. We are encouraged to make the most of every opportunity to meet with people and to share the Good News of Jesus.


Romans 8 – Part Four

21st August 2016 | David Bareham

In this, the last of our look at Romans 8, David’s theme is ‘Love and Life’. He reads from verse 28 and before delving into today’s word he references some teaching by John Stott whereby from these passages are derived:- ‘Five Unshakable Convictions’, ‘Five Affirmations’ and ‘Five Questions’

David gets quite passionate as he unpacks the three ‘Fives’ and quite rightly too. If his message today doesn’t show that God is with us…I don’t think anything will


Romans 8 – Part Three

14th August 2016 | David Bareham

The title for David’s message today is “The Price and the Prize” and he wastes no time and dives straight into Romans 8:12

From that reading he brings us four main points and in doing so, reinforces a fact that we have heard many times. That if we are living by the Spirit, it must show outwardly to our friends, co-workers and neighbours.

But even though we have the Holy Spirit within us, we will still suffer. David tells us not to despair! We have the glory of God now, but this is nothing compared to what we can expect when we meet Him face to face. David gives us a visual representation of this to help us understand what is to come and to remind us that God is with us…..always…..even in our struggles!


Romans 8 – Part Two

31st July 2016 | David Bareham

After a short intro to this mini series, David reads from Romans 8 and today we learn about “Life in the Spirit”

He goes on to take a very funny look at some of the choices we can and do make in life. As Christians though, we have to make the biggest choice of our lives. That is “Do we live in the Spirit or continue to live in the flesh”? Of course, that isn’t a choice…..but what David is saying is that when we live in the Spirit, we have to show it! He also brings us a brilliant quote, which is “The decisions that matter are the ones that change who we are. Not the ones that determine what we do”

David asks the question “What are the marks of a Spirit filled follower of Jesus”? He then gives us eight examples. If we ask ourselves “How do we live or walk according to the Spirit”? The answer is simple…..We must be filled with the Spirit!


Romans 8 – Part One

24th July 2016 | David Bareham

In April 2013, we listened to a series on Romans and before he starts today, David gives us a quick summary of what we heard.

Throughout this summer holiday period, we will be going back to Romans 8 and picking some key topics from this book. Today, David looks at three subjects:- Substitution, Sanctification and Security.

In Romans chapter 8, we are reminded that Jesus was fully human, like us, but was totally without sin. But still, he died on the cross as a sin offering, so that we could be saved. This fulfilled the Law of the Old Testament. When we become more like Christ, we are sanctified and this is the work of the Holy Spirit.

We have security in our Father God and we have the comfort that he watches over us and protects us from the things of this world, which sometimes, are the work of the devil. Nothing can separate us from the love of God.
