Our day of at-one-ment which was given by John Stettaford in Southampton on the 19th of September, 2018

In human history and in the many ways that man worshipped the gods, this day, and the actions specified are unique. And far from being out of date, this day and it’s great meaning is only possible to be understood thanks to the New Testament.












Is this the day? - Which was given by John Stettaford on the 10th of September, 2018

So many Christians think of the holy days which we continue to observe here in reading, as ‘old testament’ and ‘obsolete’. Let’s see if that’s true.

Renewal - which was given by John Stettaford on the 25th of August, 2018

Now is a good time to take a look at where we have come to as Christians. A good time for a wake up call, if we need one.








Faith of our fathers - which was given by Robin Jones on the 18th of August, 2018

Our world is far from removed from God and his way of life. Faith has been marginalised, ridiculed - even as the cause for much of the problems in our society.

Ancient Words (part 1) - which was given by David Silcox on the 21st of July, 2018

The ancient words as recorded lent to much thought to the disciples as they waited for Pentecost. And the same is true for us. And there is more than at first sight appears.

Communion service by John Stettaford given on the 14th of July, 2018









The Lord’s Prayer - which was given on the 7th of July, 2018

Meeting us where we are - which was given by John Stettaford on the 16th of June, 2018.

Christ normally talks to his disciples or to the crowds. Rarely does he talk to other groups, but when he does, we need to understand that he is meeting them where they are.

Getting to know the Holy Spirit - which was given on the 20th of May, 2018 by John Stettaford

What d’ya mean ‘love’? - Which was given on the 26th of May, 2018 by John Stettaford

We often point to the fact that the Greeks have three words for love (actually, four). But in the end, there’s only one kind of love. And we largely remain ignorant of that love.









We need daily Bible study - which was given on the 12th of May 2018 by John Stettaford

We may not know Hebrew of Greek but looking at those who do, we still can have a better insight than often they have, thanks to the Holy Spirit.










Waiting on God - which was given on the 19th of May, 2018 by Mike Barlow

So often Christians take matters into their own hands rather that to wait on God. But the examples for us in the Old Testament show that this is not what God wants.

What’s going on? - Which was given by John Stettaford on the 14th of April, 2018

Things in this sorry world of ours don’t get any better - rather worse. But Christ hasn’t returned nor taken control. Why? Because we still have a job to do.









Christian Progress - which was given by Robin Jones on the 6th of April, 2018

The Chronology of the Holy Week (part 2) which was given by John Stettaford on the 31st of March, 2018

There are many aspects in life we are to master, but forgiveness is essential, And to a degree we may not yet have fully realised.

The lesson for us behind the cursed fig tree - which was given by John Stettaford on the 16th of February, 2018

A hope and a future which was given by Richard Fowler on the the 10th of February, 2018
