Father’s Day – Good Gifts

18th June 2017 | David Bareham

David’s message today is in two halves and in the first, after the reading, we have a lighthearted look at the fathers and the children in the congregation as to what gifts they had received.

In the second half, David points out that Jesus said that “Even evil people can give good gifts”. That is because we live in a broken world and our relationships can become affected by this. We do not walk the ‘perfect walk’ like Jesus did. Moving on from that, David gives us six key points to think about so that we are able to become a good or the best father that we can be.

To close, he asks us to think about what good gifts God brings and then goes on a walkabout to hear people’s ideas…..with some great answers from the kids!


Life in the Spirit – Part Six – 2 of 4

11th June 2017 | Tope Olukemi

As we start to draw this series to a close, Tope brings us Part Two of the “Gifts of the Spirit” and looks at Faith, Miracles and Healing. He reads from 1 Corinthians 12 and he highlights that in this reading, Paul is saying to the church that he doesn’t want it to be uninformed. This whole series has been about informing us of the great value that is to be had when living a “Life in the Spirit”. We hope that you have all gained something new or a different insight on what you may know already.

Tope asks “What does it mean to have these three gifts?” He then goes on to show many examples in scripture. In closing, he raises a very important point and that is that we mustn’t want, desire or love these gifts more than we love God. We have to get the balance right!


God Will Fill His Temple – Pentecost

4th June 2017 | David Bareham

David starts today by reading from Acts 2. He then breaks down a timeline of what happened at the time of Pentecost and how this reveals God’s plan. We are also shown where we fit into the whole Bible story and then are given a lightning tour of it from Genesis to Revelation. Along the way we hear some interesting historical facts of key events. This shows what a struggle it was to get God’s physical and spiritual temple established.

David finishes by reinforcing how important it is to have the Holy Spirit within us.


Guest Speaker – Paul Thompson

21st May 2017 | Paul Thompson

Our speaker today is Paul Thompson from Kings Church, Upminster. He reads from Ephesians 4 and teaches us about the “Kingdom Culture”. In his preamble we are told that we must be 1) Equipped, 2) Unified and 3) Mature for works of service. These three points will make us ready for what the world “out there” may throw at us. He asks the question “What is the difference between the Kingdom and Church?” and offers up an insight for us to think about and to ponder on.

He talks about the culture within church and how it can be so diverse. Paul also mentions that in the real world, such diversity could cause problems, but because of the unity we have in Christ, we have stability.

To summarise, he brings us four key points that we are encouraged to make note of.


Life in the Spirit – Part Six – 1 of 4

14th May 2017 | Malcolm Sullivan

Malcolm moves onto the next part of our series Life in the Spirit, with a look at the “Gifts of the Spirit”. He reads from 1 Corinthians 12:1-11 and in this passage we see that among other things, there is unity in One Spirit, One Lord and One God. Malcolm reminds us that we must not be divided within our church.

The main focus of his message today are the gifts of Wisdom and Knowledge. We hear a few examples of each one, which help to give us a better understanding of how privileged we are to have been granted these “God given gifts”


Life in the Spirit – Part Five

7th May 2017 | David Bareham

We are now about two thirds of the way through the “Life in the Spirit” series and in his message today, David reads from Romans 8:1-17 and also rounds off as to where we are so far with the series. These verses are a great source of inspiration that we can learn from as they talk about “Justification” and “Sanctification”. David delves deeper into these two words to help us understand their meaning.

He then goes on to teach us about “The Four Signs of a Spirit Led Life”. For me there were two examples that stuck out. David explains it differently, but the words (which I’m all sure we have all heard) “Sunday Christians” springs to mind and he also shares a lovely story of a prisoner form a South African jail.
