God’s Covenant of Grace – An invitation to Live in His Presence.
Morning Worship Commences at 10.30am Evening Worship at 6.30
This is an outline of sermons based on verses 19 -25 from chapter 10 of the Epistle to the Hebrews. I would like to use these verses as the jumping off point to explore places in the scripture where we can begin to fire imaginations and begin to explore the bigger picture of the purpose of creation redemption and resurrection.
In practical terms what does it look like to live godly grace filled lives? Do we still need to talk about going to church or is it more about being church. How can we sustain Christian faith as we face the challenges of 21st century living?
God is calling each of us to know him better and live our lives to the full. He offers us a Covenant of Grace explained in detail through the life and death and resurrection of Jesus.
The sermons will hold before us the implications of the resurrection of Jesus Christ for Christians in today’s world.
In searching to know God more, we will be invited to reflect more upon eternity and how God breaks into the present to invite us to live our future legacy in the now.
Drawing near to God will always bring us into what the Celtic Church called “thin places’ ordinary places made holy as heaven and earth meet. This may call us to re-assess the way we understand the symbols and tokens of the presence of Christ among us.

Sunday Evening Worshup Evening Worship - 6.30pm
On Sunday evenings I would like to begin to focus on the place of Mission in the Church today. I’d like to make Sunday evening a time when we open our hearts and minds to the responsibilities that God has given us as a congregation. I believe it is important that we all understand the reason why we are involved in local national and international outreach programmes. Attending church on a Sunday evening over the next few months will enable all of us to understand the wider vision of our congregation. I also hope that it will help us all understand more what Jesus meant in Revelation when he said “ Look I have set before you an open door which no one can close.” This text will be the key that I believe will help us understand that the door is open. We must now walk through. Please note from time to time the programme noted below may change a little.
