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.

Life in the Spirit – Part Four – 3 of 3

30th April 2017 | Julian Fabian

We have another change from our usual array of speakers today. He name is Julian and he is one of the worship band members. For some of you, this may be the first time you have heard him speak and he uses his own (sometime tongue in cheek) style to bring us the last part at hearing about the “Fruit of the Spirit”. He teaches us about “Faithfulness, Gentleness (or Meekness) and Self Control”

As with all of the other fruits, these three are interlinked and as Julian points out, you can’t have gentleness without self control. the two go hand in hand.

To round of his message and to summarise how important the Fruits of the Spirit are, he shares a story that involves him and his son planting fruit trees in his local park and how significant that act was. It is a good example of how we can best make use of these gifts given to us.

Life in the Spirit – Part Four – 2 of 3

23rd April 2017 | Deborah Hendrey

We have a change today as Deb brings us the message. We are back into the “Life in the Spirit” series after having our Easter sermons. She continues where Tolu left off looking at “The Fruits of the Spirit” (There is a slight interference on the audio for the first few minutes of this recording for which we apologise)

Today, Deb teaches us about Patience, Kindness and Goodness. She starts by reading from Galatians 5:16-25 and then emphasises how patient God was/is with us. He is waiting for ALL of humanity to be saved! As Deb talks about the three fruits she probably touches on some “home truths” that at some point in our lives, we have all felt. Particularly…..How to deal with difficult people!

If we try harder to “Live in the Spirit” we will be given all of these fruits. Deb asks “Are you in the flow of the Spirit?” and uses what I think is a brilliant analogy to help us understand. I have been in the situation she describes (in the water) many, many times, so can totally relate to that.

Easter Sunday Service

16th April 2017 | David Bareham

We had a double reason to celebrate today. Firstly, of course, we can rejoice in the risen Lord and secondly, we had baptisms today. It is an amazing sight to see. Someone saying ‘Goodbye’ to their old life and ‘Hello’ to their new one. A great day indeed!!

Before David’s message we saw a short video and he then reads from 1 Corinthians 15 where the apostle Paul is laying the foundation of Jesus’ resurrection to the early church. David then reads a quote from the author Tim Keller which goes on to say that if we believe in the resurrection, then EVERYTHING changes! Also, the very fact that Jesus is alive, means that we live transformed lives.

David looks closely at the last verse in this chapter and it is incredible the amount of teaching that is contained within it. That leads him onto a very thought provoking question about our works here on earth. I will let you, the listener, find that for yourselves and ponder on your answer!

Jesus – A Very Different Type of King

9th April 2017 | Tope Olukemi

We take a very short break from our ‘Life in the Spirit’ series in the run up to Easter. Tope brings us the well known story of Jesus’ triumphant arrival into Jerusalem. To set the scene for his message, he reads from Mark 11:1-11. As he gets into his message you can hear the passion in his voice and it is obvious to us that this story means a lot to him!

When Jesus arrives riding on a donkey, the crowd are in awe of Him and are praising Him as they see Him as the new king that is going to defeat the Roman armies. They couldn’t have been more wrong. He was there to deliver the people from sin. As soon as the people realised this, they turned against Jesus.

He IS a very different kind of king and we must let Him be the King of our lives. He died on the cross for us so that we can be set free. The least we can do is to allow Him in.
Tope asks “Who is Jesus to us?” – He then gives us some examples of what it can mean to have Him in our lives.
