The Beatitudes, part of the Sermon on the Mount, are some of the most well known passages of the Bible. Since they were first written down almost 2000 years ago Christians have used them as the benchmark for life. Each successive generation has wrestled with what their application means to them and today we are no different.
What does it mean to mourn?
What does it mean to inherit the earth?
What do these mean for us in today’s world?
If we are going to authentically live out our faith then we need to grapple with the core teaching that Jesus left us.
So right through to early November they will be the basis of our community teaching on a Sunday morning.
Everyone is warmly welcome to our Sunday services.
Our worship style could be described as ‘informal contemporary’, with elements of ‘traditional’ thrown in for good measure.
We recognise the importance of getting to know each other and do this both during the ‘welcome’ and after services over tea and coffee.
Prayer after the service
There are times when people need specific prayer for specific situations and do not with to ask in the ‘prayers for others’.
Norman is available for anyone who wishes prayer after the service. Please sit down at the front if you would like this.
