Seminar: School of Biblical Studies: The Shadow of Christ in the Life of Elisha – 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.

Seminar: Faithful to Christ’s Commission

God’s faithfulness to His Mission in and to the UK

It’s great to be alive! Today, it is increasingly possible in the UK for people from different cultures to come together on a Sunday morning and be united in their worship of Jesus. Learning from recent research in Leeds and Manchester, and decades experience in overseas mission, this will bring Ephesians 2-3 to bear in helping churches get better equipped to obey Christ’s mission in and to the UK.

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.

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 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.

Join Naomi, Ruth and Boaz at 10:45am on YouTube to listen in to their action-packed conversation about God’s faithfulness. It will challenge you to think about your own experience. Are we faithful to God and to each other?

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.
