23/02/2020 Who is on the Lord's side? - given by Chris Davis
Who is on the Lords side ?
Faith can often be seen from the most surprising people throughout biblical and our own history we discuss in poems, songs and stories of these people, many of whom we have heard of.
We are not alone although sometimes it seems as though we are.

08/03/2020 "Our call to know God" given by Richard Cooper
“It is truly amazing that the great God, who created everything in the world we live in, wishes you and me to get to know Him. He truly wants a relationship with us as a Father. The Bible tells us that God is not far away from you and me but He wants us to respond and seek Him.

18/03/2020 "Lessons from a well side" given by Eric Lowe
"Surprisingly this story about Jesus meeting a woman by a well, deals with some of the serious challenges we all face today. Discrimination and split societies are on the increase - and Jesus gives us all guidance on how to address such problems. Join us at the well side and see what you think.
22/03/2020 "Jesus Christ - Lord of all" given by Graham Jackman
Christians call Jesus ‘Lord’, often without thinking much about what it means. Nor, perhaps, do we realise how often the title is applied to Jesus in the New Testament. That in itself is an indication that this is no courtesy title: it indicates that since his resurrection Jesus exercises the power and authority of God, at least as far as his followers are concerned. He cares for them, rules and guides them – as the title implies. They for their part give him honour and worship, not only in words but also in practice, seeking to obey his teaching and follow his example. But he is a ‘lord’ of a very unusual kind: he doesn’t ‘lord it’ over others – instead, he serves, as he powerfully illustrated when performing the most menial of all tasks, the washing of his disciples’ feet.
In the first century, the confession ‘Jesus is Lord’ put Christians at odds with the Roman Empire, ruled by ‘Lord Caesar’. But at his second coming the ‘Caesars’ of today will bow before him, for he will at last be ‘Lord of all’ and all mankind will enjoy the blessings of his wise and selfless reign.
29/03/2020 "Looking for forgiveness" given by Darren Guy
“Forgiveness of sins is important for the believer in God, but do we take it too casually or do we worry too much that we cannot be forgiven? Where is the right balance? We shall look at the forgiveness of sins by looking at how, in the Old Testament, the person wanting forgiveness had to approach God. When God was approached correctly, God was pleased and the sinner was forgiven. When we look at this, it will then highlight what God requires from us, and what our approach should be.”
