Loser: Losing your rights - Clare Thompson

September 15th 2019 7pm: Loser: Losing your rights. (Philippians 2:1-18. I Corinthians 9).

We live with two ideas that are both ‘modern’. One is the idea that we have agreed inalienable human rights. The other is ‘individualism’. In a 1st Century culture outlook would have been very different about both those assumptions. The great passage of Philippians 2 speaks of Jesus laying down his rights in the deepest possible way. In 1 Corinthians 9 Paul demonstrates in his own life what it means to surrender rights. Download Discussion notes

Leadership Training

As a growing church we need to form new mid-week church groups almost on a weekly basis. For this to happen we need new leaders! If you are some one who thinks you could help with leading a mid-week group or you know some one who could, then the Leadership Foundation course is the thing for you!

It runs over three Monday evenings starting on 30th Sept. We will be covering the following topics

30th Sept - The Character of a leader. What does it take to be a leader that some one can follow?

7th Oct - The Pastoral heart of a leaders. Some practical tips on how to notice people and what to do about what you notice!

14th Oct - Leading an evening. Creative ideas about running an evening

You may already be leading a group but would like a Leadership refresher, you’d be welcome too.

Loser: Lose your faith - Tim Dobson (with Steve Ballard)

September 8th 2018 7pm. Loser: Lose your faith (Hebrews 3:12-19, 6:4-6)

Losing your faith sadly happens to people. It is a major concern of the book of Hebrews. Losing faith can mean losing ‘dynamic’ faith and sinking into ‘religion’ and ‘dead works (instead of live works). It can mean backing away from identifying as a follower of Jesus for fear of persecution. It can mean de-constructing faith, or coming to question previous experiences or convictions.
