Seminar: School of Biblical Studies: What the Church can learn from Lamentations

The Process of Grieving

Sadly, these days, the social media has become like an obituary. Every day, there is an announcement of somebody who dies. And in these, I would often read the verse which says, “The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; may the name of the LORD be praised” (Job 1:21). True. But how do we deal with our loss, pain and grief? Lamentations provides us with a model.

This session will be available for catch up.

Seminar: Cross cultural mission in our own communities: God’s faithfulness to the nations

In God’s faithfulness to the nations we’ll sketch a biblical theology of the nations and note God’s plans and purposes for all the peoples of the earth. We’ll reconsider Christ’s Great Commission in the light of 21st Century realities after more than 200 years of the Modern Missionary Movement. Finally we’ll pause to notice the special place migrants have in God’s heart and seek a godly perspective on UK immigration.

This session will be available for catch up.

Seminar: Jars of Clay: The strengths of weakness: why God values weak leaders

Many church leaders – whether paid or voluntary – feel weak but think they have to display an image of strength. Over time that can be toxic for them and their churches and undermine faithfulness. Is there a better way? Looking at 2 Corinthians we’ll discover an alternative path. How can we learn to rejoice in weakness so that both leaders and churches benefit?

Book recommendations: The J Curve by Paul Miller, The Joy of Service by Julian Hardyman

Seminar: Faithfulness in the Home: Faithful in marriage (Part 1)

Christians know that our marriages mirror the love between Christ and his church. How do we reflect the faithfulness that he has for us between ourselves? These two practical seminars are for couples to explore how to build godly faithfulness in prayerful and practical ways, reflecting the goodness that God has given us in each other and fighting the sin that so often drags us down.

This session will be available for catch up.

Bible Reading: Hosea: The Subversive Compassion of God

God’s purpose for a family in crisis – Hosea 1-3

Hosea’s God is never predictable and rarely comfortable. But he is good, just and trustworthy. He can always be relied upon to know exactly what he is doing. Even when we have no clue as to what that purpose might be. Even when commanding his prophet to marry a sex worker… (3:1)

Book recommendations: Hosea The Passion of God by Tim Chester, The Message of Hosea by Derek Kidner, Love Divine & Unfailing by Michael P V Barrett, Hosea: An Introduction and Commentary by Robin Routledge

Evening Celebration: A suffering church

The future of the church – at least in Asia Minor – was threatened from without by persecution and within by false teaching, idolatry and immorality. The words of the risen Christ come, with similar pattern, in every letter. Although rooted in history, and particular, yet they are meant for wider audience and they are very contemporary.

Smyrna is the subject of Revelation 2:8-11. There is no criticism of the church; there is a radical reconstruction of what constitutes true poverty and riches, and a reassurance of eternal security in the face of terrible suffering.

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