- Who we are
- What we do
One of the strangest things in the New Testament is the fact that the practice of human slavery is not frowned upon.
In our modern, individualistic society, we find any challenge to our freedom to be an attack on our human rights.
Yet, when the Apostle Paul spoke about slavery, he chose to help believers work within a contemporary social structure without calling for that structure to be dismantled.
This Sunday, John Wilson will speak to us from Ephesians chapter 6 verses 5 to 9, where God tells slaves and masters how to live in a way that pleases God.
Come along at 9am or 5pm and find out what this ancient word means in our modern culture, as we hear God’s word speak today.
One of the biggest leaps a church can make is to employ a second, full-time, word minister.
It’s a big leap in the amount of word ministry, but it’s also a big leap in the financial commitment.
If you didn’t get a chance to hear me read out the letter from last week on this topic, please get a copy or read it here online.
Our Parish Council is meeting this Wednesday for an extraordinary meeting to decide whether or not to go ahead with employing a new minister for next year, so I ask that you would do two things.
Firstly, please pray that they will have great wisdom from God as they make this decision.
Secondly, if you are able to commit to increasing your giving to help us work together to meet this goal, please be sure to let one of our Wardens know before Wednesday night, as this will help a great deal as they make this vital decision for the future of our church.
