03/11/2019 - "Surrender" - given by Jim Bilton
“No surrender” is the rallying call of so many groups at the moment. Surrender is seen as being weak, giving in or failing: yet it is something that the Bible tells us that Christian should aspire to. This is a devotional service to try to lead our thoughts closer to what God really wants from us.
10/11/2019 "Bible teaching about the Sabbath" - given by Philip Wheatherall
Bible Teaching about the Sabbath
The Jewish Sabbath instituted by God approximately 3500 years ago continues to be observed by both Jews living in Israel and those living throughout the world. The day starts at 6pm on Friday evening and finishes 24 hours later. It’s purpose was twofold:
1. That as God created the heavens and the earth in six days and rested on the seventh day so Israel was to remember this fact and to refrain from their labours.
2. That as the fledgling nation was in slavery in Egypt and God brought them out of the hand of Pharaoh, they were to recall this amazing deliverance and to utilise the Sabbath day to rejoice in that freedom, by honouring their God.
It is not surprising in view of these points to discover that the observation of the Sabbath is embedded in the 10 commandments that were given to Moses when he went up Mount Sinai shorty after their release from bondage.
But how did Israel do in keeping God’s Sabbath law?
What bearing does the observance of the Sabbath have in the lives of believers today?
Does the Sabbath have any significance for believers now?
And what about Sunday?
This talk will examine the Scripture teaching on the Sabbath day and answer the above questions
17/11/2019 "All things bright and beautiful - The Lord God made them all" - given by Martin Longland
With our children joining us for our Family Service, we are going to reflect on part of God’s wonderful creation as seen through the animal kingdom.
Animals amaze us, they are so diverse. They make us smile and we enjoy watching them. They are all part of the ever turning circle of nature. They are symbolised in the Bible and also used as a lesson for us.
24/11/2019 "Look at your life through Heaven's eyes" - given by Brian Marshall
