Money changers

John 2:13-25 Jesus clears the temple courts 13 When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14 In the temple courts he found people selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. 15 So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables. 16 To those who sold doves he said,

The Ewing Family’s Big Year
Bird 2

Simeon Ewing talked to the children this morning about The Ewing Family Big Year, 2018. The family have always been passionate about spotting species of birds, but their ‘Big Year’ was inspired by a book and a film called The Big Year about a bird-spotting competition held in America. There are 675 species of birds native to America, but the competition winner spotted 750 birds – all of the native species, and some which were ‘just visiting.’

Mourners in Cana: John on abundant life and the mystery of suffering
John Brogdar

I really appreciated Duncan’s sermon about the abundance of life which Jesus offers. Over the years, I have come in a small way to enter into this joyful life, and to rely on God’s provision. I wholeheartedly testify from my own experience that God gives us the will, the impetus, the resources, the energy to do what God challenges us to in any given day. I try to begin each day with ‘Father God, help me to enter into your joy today, and to

He spoke about the detailed protocols of weddings, for example the colour

House Group Questions on John 1:35-51 John the Baptist referred to Jesus as ‘the Lamb of God.’  Discuss how, by describing Jesus in this way, John was both referring back to a deeply significant time in Jewish history, and pointing forward to Jesus’ future work.
