    based on 5 ratings

    A short but challenging all-age talk using a giant home-made ’Christingle’ (an orange with a red ribbon wrapped around, four sticks with fruit & sweets on & a white candle - all symbolism). God loves the world and sent Jesus as the Light of the World.

    In November I spent two weeks in Rwanda; a small country in Africa. It is a most beautiful country. There are countless rolling green hills, many of them filled with banana trees.

    I recently came across a few tongue-in-cheek guidelines for Christmas eating: 1. If you eat something and no-one sees you eat it, it has no calories. 2. If you drink a diet drink with chocolate, the calories in the chocolate bar are cancelled out by the calories in the diet drink! 3. When you more

    A short talk for our 2011 Christingle services. Will you make room for Jesus? If you do, 2012 and the rest of your life will be very different!

    based on 1 rating

    A 'full' text which I will expand upon as I preach. Peter's good reputation spread and people came to faith as he did things in Jesus' name. Our reputation is also very important ...

    When I was a child I loved the Beano magazine, and as a parent I’ve enjoyed reading Dennis the Menace stories to my children. Matthew used to want me to read Horrid Henry stories to him, and now Rebekah does. Dennis the Menace and Horrid Henry have a reputation and they live up to it. Their more

    based on 9 ratings

    God used Peter to write these words to a church under pressure, persecuted by the local community. Whatever our circumstances, Jesus has issued us with a missionary mandate to love one another deeply ...

    This piece of scripture was written by the apostle Peter to a church which was under pressure. Opposition from the local community was high. Violence and persecution towards the church was quite normal. It is a long way from my experience, but the call of God for the church to be Good News is as more

    based on 1 rating

    Why does Matthew add the story of the slaughter of the baby boys in Bethlehem. First becasue it is fact and second to trigger assocaiations between Jesus birth and Moses birth (see details in sermon)

    I came across this excerpt from a sermon from the Early Church Father St. Quod-vult-deus (Sermo 2 de Symbolo: PL 40, 655) “A tiny child is born, who is a great king. Wise men are led to him from afar. They come to adore one who lies in a manger and yet reigns in heaven and on earth. When more
