the desires of your heart

29th December 2013 | David Bareham

In this, our first service after Christmas, David reads from Psalm 20 to help show us how important prayer is. He reminds us that we are constantly in a battle….”This is not a cruise ship”……We were never promised an easy life!
We need to be people of prayer and we must pray for ourselves and for one another. In this coming year, we will face trials and we will need the Lord to protect us.
David asks….”Do we have the faith to let God protect us in a life or death situation?” Can we honestly say that we have that amount of faith?
He finishes today by asking us, can we go into 2014 praying in faith and believe in that prayer that God will grant us those desires of our hearts.

Celebrating together – as a church

15th December 2013 | Joachim Adenusi

On this, our next Focus Sunday, Joachim looks at how we should celebrate together, as a church. Too often, we focus on bad things and watch bad news on the TV. Joachim defines for us the words ‘Celebrate’ and ‘Together’ so we may better understand his teaching today. He tells us we are to celebrate and to thank God for what he has done for us.
We hear from him, a light hearted example of how we should ‘Woo’ our wives / girlfriends / husbands / partners. Using this example Joachim encourages us to tell God what we think of Him and how much we love Him. We should also witness to our families of all the good things God does and celebrate His greatness. We are to push the enemy back, out of our lives and clear our minds of negative thoughts!

When You Should Say Yes

8th December 2013 | Leon Ringlemann

Reading from Luke 1:5, Leon tells us that advent is not just being with family and friends and exchanging gifts. We hear the meaning and the true story of advent and we are told that we must ‘bathe ourselves in the waterbath of the word’
Continuing on from Tope’s sermon last week, Leon reinforces the message that ‘Jesus is for everyone that would say Yes’……
As an analogy, he pays tribute to Nelson Mandela and shows how he (Mandela) saved a nation, but Jesus, saved the world!
Mary is commended on her bravery and her faith at the age of 16 because she decided to say ‘Yes’ to the great commission God gave to her. Leon asks the question…’If we hear a message from God, will we say the same??’

When should we say ‘Yes’?

1st December 2013 | Tope Olukemi

Reading from Matthew 1:18, Tope brings us the story of Mary and Joseph today. He delves deep into it and looks at Mary’s response after being visited by the angel of the Lord. We hear how this story fulfils the prophecy of the Messiah and how much Mary is challenged by this. She is worried about her reputation, about losing Joseph and how she would cope with being Jesus’ mother.
Tope asks us…What challenges do we face and then gives us examples to think about.
When God called upon Mary and Joseph, they said ‘Yes’……Will we do the same, when we are called?
In his closing words, Tope shows us that although we may think we are not worthy of being God’s children, we must put these thoughts aside and open up to Him!

singleness in church today

17th November 2013 | Joachim Adenusi

In this, our next ‘Focus Sunday’, Joachim talks about what it is to be single in church today. He first reads from scripture to back up his teaching for this morning. In Genesis, God says ‘It is not good for man (mankind) to be alone’ so, as we all know, He created Eve so that Adam was not by himself. In the kingdom of God, we are not alone. Joachim gives us some startling statistics from the UK and the USA to demonstrate how the amount of single people has risen in recent years. He says that when we are alone, we are vulnerable and open to attack. We must not forget that there are different types of single people, which include divorced, single parent, widowed and separated and as a church, we have to look out for those people that are alone. We must be aware of their needs and also their loneliness. For those of us that are single (for whatever reason) we must maintain intimacy with God at all times.

disciple making mission

10th November 2013 | Malcolm Sullivan

Today Malcolm’s message looks at us being disciples and making disciples. He starts by reminding us of his message back in January 2012 when he used the analogy of riding on a tram and going in the right direction. He asks, when you joined our church, did you know where you were going…..did you know it’s destination?? We hear how, when being a disciple, we should pair with a good role model and we must lead by example. Also, we shouldn’t worry about trying to lead lots of disciples, because if we mentor just four, and those four mentor four and so on….the number of disciples will grow very quickly. God is asking us……’Do you want to be a passionate disciple and be up close??’
