July’s Worship For All (catchup online here) continued the theme of the Bible with a look at the Old Testament. The story of Israel is a full-on roller-coaster with awful, wrenching lows and dizzying, wonderful highs. The shape of that story made every 1st Century Jew who they were and it formed the scripture that Jesus used. If we want to understand Jesus then we need to understand where His story fits into history.
June’s Worship For All (catchup online here) was looking at the subject of the Bible - thinking about its history, who wrote it, how we got it and, most importantly, who it tells us about. In conclusion, the Bible is the book that’s influenced billions of people, Christian and non-Christian. For us, it’s a way to connect with, listen to, and be changed by God. The bible wasn’t written to sit on a shelf or gather dust.
Why a new website? Yes, welcome to our new website. The aim is that it’s a front door to the benefice. It tells you about our services, our activities and our buildings. It helps people find out about what we offer. The previous site was a bit more ambitious. It let us post a wide range of content, but it also took quite a bit of effort to maintain. It’s been at the heart of our online presence over the last year or so and we’ve been very lucky to have it.
