25th February 2018 | Tolu Falase

Before reading from Jonah Chapter 3, Tolu gives us a quick recap of where we are so far and then we get into today’s messages entitled “The Power of God’s Word” – God had given Jonah the instruction to go to Nineveh so that the city could be saved. Tolu gives us a description of what that city was like and we can see the reason why Jonah may not have wanted to go! It wasn’t a very nice place and was full of sin. Tolu asks “What is our attitude to sin?” He says that if we had to pay the price of sin straight away, would our attitude be different?

God told Jonah that Nineveh would be destroyed in 40 days and he was to go and tell the people. But as we see, Jonah’s message was so powerful, that the people turned from their sinful ways straight away! From that point onward, they believed in God.


Sheep Fishing – Everyone a Witness

18th February 2018 | David Bareham

Continuing with our monthly look at the Sheep Fishing series, David brings us a taster of the “411 Training” and looks at the subject of “Who do I share my faith with?” He reads from Luke 10:1-11 and the brings us two main points to consider.

David tells us that each one of us is appointed, but Jesus sent His followers out in pairs. This was to allow them to support each other. We all know someone that isn’t a follower of Jesus and the first thing we can do is to start praying for them.

Jesus says we will be sent out like sheep among wolves. That may seem scary to us, but here in the UK, we have a lot of freedom. In other countries around the world, it is a different story, but Jesus’ followers aren’t put off from speaking to non-believers.


God said “Go” – Jonah – Part Three

11th February 2018 | Malcolm Sullivan

After a brief update on the other churches that we are involved in and a quick summary of where we are so far in this mini series looking at Jonah, Malcolm reads from Chapter 1:17 – 2:10. The title of today’s teaching is “Salvation Comes from the Lord”.

For those of us that have trouble comprehending parts of this story, Malcolm explains how and why we should believe that it is actually true! We see how Chapter Two is an integral part to the whole series of events. Jonah had got to a stage where he had defied God’s instruction, so God took action. Malcolm says “Don’t let our situation get so bad that God sends a ‘Big Fish’ for us!”

To continue the theme of God saying “Go”, Malcolm tells us about what happened with the Israelites when they were in Babylon when they refused to obey Him. Malcolm follows with three things we should be doing as Christians in a very powerful close to his message.


God said “Go” – Jonah – Part Two

4th February 2018 | Tope Olukemi

Tope starts with a short tongue in cheek explanation of the title, “The Prophetic Lasagne”, to today’s message. He then follows with a small summary of the book of Jonah before reading from Chapter 1:4-17. He gives his own dramatic version of the chain of events that lead to Jonah being thrown overboard. As soon as this was done, the storm calmed and the sailors and the ship were saved. Jonah was their salvation and this story is a foretelling of Jesus’ sacrifice, so that we may be saved.

One main point that Tope picks out from this text is that all through the storm, Jonah was in a deep sleep. Tope asks, “Are we like Jonah. A nation sleeping. Do we share God’s passion for the world?”

Tope closes with a look at how the layers of the “Prophetic Lasagne” apply to us.


God said “Go” – Jonah – Part One

28th January 2018 | David Bareham

After a break for Christmas we are now at the start of a new mini series looking at the story of Jonah. David reads from Jonah 1:1-3 and then takes a look at who Jonah was and we also find out what was happening during the time that he was alive. There are also other characters in this story and we will hear about them in the coming few weeks.

David asks “What is God saying to us in these first three verses from the book of Jonah and what instructions has God given us to do?”
God told Jonah to “Go” and He is telling us the same. We are to arise and go because He will take us from where we are to where He wants us to be.


The Birth of Jesus

10th December 2017 | Malcolm Sullivan

Malcolm reads from Luke 2:1-20 and we hear the familiar story about the birth of Jesus. To set the scene for his message today he tells us the history behind the train station called “Gospel Oak”. For those of you that have traveled in and out of London from the east, you may have heard the name before. The preachers used that mighty oak tree as a meeting place to share the Word.

He shows us a crib or manger and gives an interesting example of why it can be seen as a very important part of Jesus’ story. When the shepherds saw Jesus, this would have been the first time that anyone would have witnessed the gospel. He (Jesus) was accessible to everyone then and He still is today. Also, the shepherds would have been the first to follow God’s command “Go and tell others”.

Before closing Malcolm asks “Are we going to be obedient like Joseph and Mary were?” – They would have both been very worried about their situation, but God reassured them. We also hear a lovely blessing that Malcolm saw in an Anglican Cathedral and he shares that with us today.
