Keswick Lecture: Faithful to the creation mandate?

When God created the world, he said it was “very good”. His very first command to humans was to have dominion over it and to care for it. Yet we have failed dismally: global climate change and suffering from disasters such as floods, droughts and famines are largely down to human selfishness. I will explore a Christian response to such ‘natural’ disasters in an otherwise beautiful creation.

This session will be live streamed and available for catch up.

Count Everyone In

We’d love you to join us for these short daily online sessions of Bible teaching, worship, signing and prayer with Count Everyone In. The series runs Monday to Friday and is especially intended for adults with learning disabilities to encounter God for the first time or to grow in their faith and understanding. We shall explore the exciting Book of Ruth with the help of Janneke Klos, Pete and Christine Winmill, who each take the role of one of the main characters. We shall find out how God is faithful even in difficult times. Each session will be streamed on YouTube.

Today it’s time to meet Boaz and hear the story from his point of view. Join us at 10:45am on YouTube to continue thinking about God’s faithfulness and also some ways in which we can be kind to other people.

Morning Bible Reading: Philippians

Paul wrote the letter to the Philippians while he was in lockdown – imprisoned in Rome and awaiting trial before Nero. Yet his letter brims over with gratitude as he rejoices in the abundant blessings poured into his life by a faithful God.

Jesus – a faithful Saviour – Philippians 2:1-30
Even this church had its problems – there was evidence of division and disunity. Paul’s lifts their eyes to Christ, the faithful Saviour, who poured out his life in humble service. To support his argument Paul describes two gospel heroes. Do we yearn for unity? Do we hunger for holiness? Do we long to shine like stars in this dark world?

This session will be live streamed and available for catch up.

Evening Celebration: God’s protecting faithfulness

The Psalms are not just our words to God, but God’s words to us, given back to his people as instruction, shaping us to respond to him as we ought with our minds and hearts and lives. Each evening this week we will explore a psalm that talks about faithfulness.

In Psalm 91 we find that the believer is truly secure in God. Verse 4 tells us, “He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.”

This session will be live streamed and available for catch up.
