Seminar: School of Biblical Studies: 1+2 Kings

The Saviour (2 Kings 4-5)

Elisha foreshadows Jesus more closely than anyone in the Old Testament, not least in bringing salvation when everyone expected him to bring judgement. Indeed he saves the most unlikely people, including Namaan, the human trafficker, whose conversion epitomises both the inclusivity and exclusivity of the gospel.

This session will be available for catch up.

Seminar: Faithful to Christ’s Commission

Join Steve Smith and Matthew Skirton as they explore what it means to be faithful to Christ’s commission as we take part in mission today.

This session will be available for catch up.

Seminar: Faithfulness when my life isn’t what I want it to be: Broken relationships

Broken people living in a broken world inevitably face broken relationships. Some of us wade through the damage and hurt every day whilst others get caught off guard by a sudden ‘fracture’. Our tendency to look OUT in blame or INWARD in self-defence contradicts God’s master plan: To unite all things under one head…Christ. I pray, as we look UP, He might re-orientate us with fresh hope and help.

This session will be available for catch up.

Seminar: The Bible from 30,000 feet: Grateful for the crucified King

Through Jesus, the story of humanity is brought to fulfilment. This seminar traces the theme of the ‘Christ – not Jesus’ surname but a title for God’s anointed king. Jesus’ ministry establishes God’s kingdom on earth and his death and resurrection inaugurate the hope of new creation.

This session will be available for catch up.

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.

Grace – a faithful ministry – Philippians 3:1-21
The church is always under threat from those who want to replace the grace of God with “another gospel”. Paul is passionate about the grace of God which has transformed his life. Press on and don’t give up! Do we share Paul’s passion? How does the grace of God shape our ambitions? How does this grace give us hope for the future?

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

Evening Celebration: In praise of God’s faithfulness (Mission Night)

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.

Psalm 98 is a call – for Israel and all creation – to sing in praise of the God who has acted powerfully for Israel and who will come in judgement, for salvation for Israel ultimately is good news for the world and all of creation.

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