Tomorrow morning we are hosting Jameson Titus from Christ for India in our morning meeting.

Did you know there are 69.5 million Christians in India? This is a larger number than the population of the UK! (Which in the 2021 census stood at 67.33 million). Yet India is on the Open Doors world watch list of countries where simply being a follower of Jesus Christ can be dangerous. If you want to investigate this further, looking at the Open Doors world watch list is a good place to start.

This week we will be listening to a presentation of the work that Jameson and his team do in India. Working with pastors and church planters, caring for the children in their children’s home and providing top quality education for the next generation from pre-school through to university standard.

We will be recording the message, but we WON’T be posting it in the usual manner. If you want to listen to it, please DM me.

Julian’s New Website

Julian has just created a new website to post his musings as pastor and to post links for the books he writes. Do check it out!

About Leadership

Many church members rail against what they perceive as ‘heavy shepherding’. Heavy Shepherding is a term used of church leaders who wield their authority too heavily and are far too controlling and authoritarian over their churches. This actually flies contrary to the...

Do unto others ….

Often Jesus’ rule, which is known as the ‘golden rule” is cited as a wonderful way to live. And so it is. Matthew 7:12 (ESV): “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets”. A great way to live is always treat...

“Christmas is a pagan festival!”

This claim is currently doing the rounds on social media. If you are a Christian, what should we think about this? How should we respond? Are they right? What does this mean for Christmas? For our faith in Christ? It can be tempting to try to justify the Christian...

Julian’s Books

Julian’s Books Julian’s new book is now available on Amazon. Having turned his preaching series on the Disciples and some of the people whose lives are touched by Jesus into his previous two books, he has now turned his thoughts on the book of Esther into offering...

How do we know the will of God?

Many Christians are in awe of people who seem to ‘know’ what God’s will is, who seem to always be hearing the ‘still small voice of God’ and the ‘inner witness’ of the Holy Spirit. The Bible seems to also suggest something else. Consider the following two scenarios:...

What talent have you been given?

From time to time I see something in the Scripture to which I think ‘I never noticed that detail!’ Or at least that detail didn’t resonate with me before. Today’s is this: When we read the parable of the talents, I had always considered the person given just one...

Right and Wrong — or Legal and Illegal?

We have a tendency today to think that the terms “right” and “legal”, and the terms “illegal” and “wrong” are interchangeable. They are not. In modern western societies which are “democratic”. That is, governed through majority consensus, evidenced by the...

Some things Jesus never says:

Nowadays we have all manner of self help books, gurus and experts giving us all sorts of advice and making all sorts of comments about what people should do if they are to "be happy". Many of the philosophies of the world stand in contradiction to the narrative and...

Please be patient with us today …

We have family duties to attend to, so I won’t get the opportunity to edit and upload today’s message until this evening.
