Bible passages for Sunday’s Service

Galatians 1:13-17 13 For you have heard of my previous way of life in Judaism, how intensely I persecuted the church of God and tried to destroy it. 14 I was advancing in Judaism beyond many of my own age among my people and was extremely zealous for the traditions of my fathers. 15 But when God, who set me apart from my mother’s womb and called me by his grace, was pleased 16 to reveal his Son in me so that I might preach him among the Gentiles,

Wonderful welcoming God: sermon from Jonathan on Acts 15:1-19

Jonathan was preaching this morning, on Acts 15:1-19.  It’s an incident in the early history of the church which teaches us lessons very relevant for today. Here’s the background Most of the very first followers of Jesus were Jewish people, who had either Jewish by birth or conversion.  As the good news spread ever-widely from Jerusalem, people who were not Jewish (referred to as Gentiles) were also responding to the message about Jesus, and

Book Group

We had a lovely evening at Angela's on Thursday night. Lots of lovely cakes, tea and coffee and the craic was great! We discussed Three Strong women and those of us who read it agreed that it was a hard read with lots of symbolism that was difficult to understand. We enjoyed the style of writing and descriptions of the characters. It got 3/5. Major Pettigrew’s last stand was read by more people and was enjoyed by all. It was an easy read with a

Good news

Acts 15:1-18 The council at Jerusalem 15 Certain people came down from Judea to Antioch and were teaching the believers: ‘Unless you are circumcised, according to the custom taught by Moses, you cannot be saved.’ 2 This brought Paul and Barnabas into sharp dispute and debate with them. So Paul and Barnabas were appointed, along with some other believers, to go up to Jerusalem to see the apostles and elders about this question. 3 The church

Housegroup questions on Acts 8:26-40

Philip was a man filled with the Holy Spirit, and wisdom, Duncan reminded us. (See Acts 6:3) Can you think of someone whom you would say this of?  What makes them stand out in your mind? Philip was, Duncan pointed out, in touch with God. Have you ever had an experience when you felt God prompting you to share something with someone and it turn out to be just the right thing at the right time? Duncan urged us to be a ‘listening’ church, open
