This past week a good group of us from our church have been in a field in North Yorkshire for Elim Festival. The theme of this week has been ‘Journey’, giving particular attention to our journey of faith. The reality is that the outworking of our faith is a journey; sometimes we feel like we’re Read more about The Journey: One Inch At A Time[…]

Dear Church, Our stated vision for the last few years has been “to disciple our city by equipping people to become fully committed followers of Christ.” Up until recently we’ve had no clear understanding of how we were going to fulfil that mandate. The elders and I have, over a number of months, been praying Read more about New Vision: What It Is and What It Isn’t[…]
Whether you’ve been following Jesus for a few years or you’ve just started to follow him, at some point you will have heard about Jesus’ command to be baptised. My objective in this blog is not to discuss the various intricacies of differing views and practices with regard to baptism. I want to lay out Read more about 3 Reasons to Get Baptised[…]
Readings: Ephesians 1-6. It is difficult to summarise a book like Ephesians. With others of Paul’s letters, there are obvious key themes to identify. Letters like 1 & 2 Corinthians have a clear purpose because they were written by Paul in response to questions or problems raised in the church. However, Ephesians does not appear Read more about Big Picture: Day 350[…]
Readings: Colossians 1-4; Philemon. Often when I read the book of Colossians I focus my attention on that amazing passage in chapter one which speaks of Jesus’ supremacy over all things. I’ve regularly read those verses at the beginning of Sunday services, or during times of sung worship, to encourage the congregation with the incredible Read more about Big Picture: Day 349[…]
Readings: Acts 24-26. There’s something very powerful about testimonies. Millions of people have come to faith in Jesus through hearing someone else’s testimony of his influence on their lives. Often the testimonies we most celebrate are stories of people who have been redeemed by Jesus from obvious and life-controlling patterns of sin. While we are Read more about Big Picture: Day 347[…]
Readings: Acts 20-23. As someone who preaches, I feel a particular resonance with one section of today’s readings. The ideal length of a sermon is a topic of much debate among church leaders. Some advocate preaching short sermons, in keeping with research which suggests a declining attention span among average people. Others favour longer sermons, Read more about Big Picture: Day 346[…]
Readings: Romans 8-10. I have to admit, I’ve found these last couple of blogs a real challenge to write. Romans is such a rich book, full of deep theological truths and foundational doctrines of our faith. Paul writes passionately and powerfully; affirming our salvation, testifying about God’s grace, glorifying Jesus. There is so much to Read more about Big Picture: Day 343[…]
Readings: Romans 4-7. It’s been said before that there is no such thing as a perfect church, but if there was it would cease to be so as soon as one of us joined it. Try as we might, we can never reach perfection. However, perfection is exactly what God requires of us. We are Read more about Big Picture: Day 342[…]
