As we come out of our Covid restrictions and look into the next season for us as Jubilee, I wanted to take this time to share some news with you regarding our next steps as a church.
In Ephesians chapter 6, the Apostle Paul has something to say to slaves and masters. Raj speaks on how Christianity and the gospel message creates a world in which slavery becomes unimaginable.
When we look at the culture that Paul was writing into, we realise that Paul's teaching on marriage in Ephesians was radical. Is it still radical in our Western culture today and can it help us to develop strong and healthy marriages?
Meeting Jesus is totally transformational plus we've got a new kit to wear!
The Chinese Christian, Watchman Nee wrote a book based on Ephesians called Sit, Walk, Stand. This passage tells us that we can walk humbly in submission and building each other up in love.

As we mark both Refugee Sunday and Fathers' Day, Mojtaba speaks to us about how Jesus taught his followers to pray. Telling us to start with 'Our Father' shows the amazing privilege with which we come before God in prayer!
Today's talk comes from a member of our youth group at Jubilee Church Teesside. What does it mean to be confident? As Paul continues his letter to the Ephesians we come to a prayer where he encourages the church to be rooted and established in love, a love that comes from the knowledge of God.
Paul has received revelation about a great mystery! The Jews and Gentiles are now both heirs to the amazing riches of God. This was mind-blowing information to the Ephesian church. In this passage, we see different examples of how Paul shares this exciting news. As Christians, we have exciting news that the world needs to hear! What can we learn from Paul about being bringers of good news?
Have you ever thought that there might actually be a number of similarities between our Christian walk and baking a cake? Gavin explores some of these similarities in this month's Elders letter!
One of the most powerful things God has done is make one new people out of two. Chris speaks on how Christ Jesus has destroyed the walls that divided us and brought us close to Him and to each other.
The Apostle Paul says that when God rescued us, we weren't just sick, sleepy or in need of some rehab; we were dead. Yet the amazing news is that God made us alive with Christ! Raj helps us to see that this passage is like an espresso of concentrated truth upon truth for us!
What we pray for others can tell us a great deal about what we think of them and what we think of God. In this passage Paul wants the eyes of his friends' hearts to see three important things!

As Paul starts his amazing letter to the Ephesian Church from his prison cell in Rome we find a fascinating opening paragraph. Although Paul is in a difficult situation, what we find is a huge statement of praise to God, with Paul recounting a number of Spiritual Blessings. What a way to start this letter!
