Just Another Melodic Monday - All My Days (Beautiful Saviour)

We sang this song yesterday when we gathered as a church, but we didn't sing it like this!  "All My Days (Beautiful Saviour)" is about the glory of Jesus Christ and how we can trust him to save us, from now to eternity.  The song is written by Stuart Townend.

Some Words for Monday: Church from Scratch: Leadership

One of the elders from Newtown Evangelical Church, Tim Gill, came to speak about "The Church and Leadership" as part of our series looking at church basics.  In this overview, we consider the role and characteristics of church leaders - those who are referred to as "elders" in the New Testament.

Just Another Melodic Monday: He is our God

I had a great time last week at the Sovereign Grace UK Conference in Christ Church, Mayfair.  As well as some awesome teaching, we sang a couple of their new songs, which unfortunately have yet to make their way to Youtube.  Here, however, is another new song called "He is Our God", which is on the forthcoming live album, "Prayers of the Saints".

Some Words for Tuesday: The Bridegroom's Responsibility (John 2:1-11)

In John chapter 2, Jesus attends a wedding and transforms water into wine.  John describes this as a "sign" - a miracle with a message.  We consider what this event teaches us about the responsibility that Jesus has as the Bridegroom to provide for "the marriage supper of the Lamb" (Revelation 19:9).
