Changed by an encounter
Today's healing service we will be looking at the resurrection appearance of Jesus to the disciples who are hiding in fear of their lives.  They are changed by their encounter with the risen Jesus.    What will an encounter with the risen Jesus mean for me?   Suzanne Owen  John 20:19-23

A love story - pursued and wooed
It's easy with all the problems and difficulties of life to forget that at the heart of reality is the One who loves us with a profound, unending and unchangeable love.    To Peter, struggling with deep disappointment, Jesus asked him, "Do you love me more than these?".  The response that Jesus teased from his heart truly set him free to discover the burning, inextinguishable love of God at the centre of the universe, both for himself and the world.   David Mayhew  John 21:15-17 & 20-21

Good News; Extra, extra, read all about it!
Jesus was, and still is, in the business of helping people believe.  Even though he stood right in front of the disciples he still helped them to believe.   Jesus has good news for everyone!  John 20&21

Hopelessness Transformed

Misunderstood Friend
Misunderstandings can trip us up, be stumbling blocks to our understanding and yet if we are prepared to allow the Spirit of Truth to penetrate our hearts, minds and blind spots, we, like Mary, can say 'We have seen the Lord' (John 20:18). In our service yesterday, Suzanne explored how Judas may have misunderstood his friend, Jesus. Suzanne focuses on Judas and his act of betrayal in the garden.   Suzanne Owen  John 18:1-8

Knowing Truth
Truth is often depicted as the right facts, the correct information - but the truth about truth is so much deeper than that.  Truth is about 'who' not 'what', and we will be discovering the freedom that knowing truth brings.    Suzanne Owen  John 8:31-36  Psalm 31:3-5

When the storm clouds loom, watch and pray
As the storm clouds loomed over Jesus life with the events of Easter week fast approaching he called his disciples to be with him, and 'Watch and Pray'.   In the midst of the storm we are facing, both in our personal circumstances and in the world, Jesus still invites those who follow him, to climb the watchtower in order to gain a bigger and clearer perspective, to receive courage and fresh watch and pray!   David Mayhew  Matthew 26:36-41 & Matthew 26:45-46

God's Wardrobe
Can we really be sure we are saved?  Do we doubt our salvation?     All too often we rely on how we feel rather than trusting in Biblical truth.  Suzanne considers how we are clothed in Christ and what that means.    In this talk Suzanne looks at our new clothes given to us as gifts from God.   Suzanne Owen  Isaiah 61:1-3 & 10, Galatians 3:23-29

Where is God when our world is rocked?
David Mayhew Matthew 2:13-23   The parts that don't normally make it into our Christmas plays are the events in Matthew 2.  There we read of Mary fleeing into the night with her baby Jesus, faced with fear, a killing machine at her heels and years of disappointing anonymity.  The story line has many parallels with what the Ukrainians are facing in these days.   Where is God and what are his purposes when the unexpected, disappointment and even tragedy strike?  Matthew 2 v 13-23 give us some much needed insight!

22:2 The Angelic Invitation
Suzanne Owen  Luke 2:8-14   What does glory mean?  What does it mean to have the Lord's favour?  Does having God's favour mean you are His favourite?  Does God have favourites?   What about peace?  If I don't feel peaceful does that mean God's favour is not resting on me?   Suzanne unpacks the angel's message.  The angels came to the official sinners first with their message, which means that the saviour of the world came to sinners first.   At Christmas, God offers us all the best stuff and all we have to simply say "Yes, I will take it".   Will you?
