Elders Letters
Take your chance!
Making the most of every opportunity

I couldn’t possibly write an Elders’ letter this month without at least making reference to that amazing night in Madrid on June 1st and Liverpool FC’s historic sixth Champions League trophy. Non-football fans…please don’t switch off!

Jonah
Going To The City
A Call For Each Of Us
Jonah 3:1-4
23rd Jun 2019

As Jonah finds himself washed up on dry land after his time in the belly of the fish, he is met not with judgement and rebuke but with a second chance. This time Jonah followed his calling and went to the city of Nineveh. In this talk Gavin unpacks what this might have meant for Jonah, and what we can take from this as individuals today as we go into the cities around us. What does it mean to 'go to the city'? How can we do that practically? Is this a calling just for individuals or a greater call for us as a church?;

Jonah
Facing the Storm
Our way or God's Way
Jonah 1:4-8
26th May 2019

As we move on in the story of Jonah we see Jonah caught in a great storm along with the rest of the people on his ship. As people, we often face various storms in our own lives as individuals; difficulties, illness or suffering. We also see great storms which face us as a society - the world can be full of storms! In this talk, Gavin looks at what the different reactions in this story can teach us about our reactions to some of the storms in life that we face. Should we deal with them in the same way that Jonah or the Sailors did or is there an even better way?

A Miraculous Catch
One More Miracle
John 21
28th Apr 2019

As we come to the end of our sermon series in the book of John, Gavin unpacks the final chapter looking at a miraculous catch of fish for the disciples. Having reverted back to their old life, as Jesus shows in this passage, that is often the place where he meets us. In this talk we look at teaching on mission, church and forgiveness...an action packed way to finish the book of John!
