Growing in faith is at the heart of all we do.  Following Jesus is an adventure which develops in every dimension of life, however alongside practical ways to grow, we believe that we also need to learn and feed on God’s word, the Bible.  Here at All Saints we seek to offer deep, bible teaching which provides real applications for everyday life.  If you miss a week, then you can catch up here!

Autumn 2018 series: Generosity

Generosity – something we all know is important but most of us find hard!  What does true generosity look like?  In this major series, we’ll be looking at how to live a generous life in every dimension – not just financial, but in our time, speech and behaviour towards others. Above all, we’ll be inspired by God’s radical generosity towards us – something we usually call ‘grace’! In this season of harvest, when we celebrate God’s abundant provision, may God grant us all grace to become more like Him, cultivating that generosity which is the mark of every true Christ-follower.

January Series: The Beatitudes

A major new series, looking at probably the most famous sermon intro of them all – what have come to be known as the Beatitudes.   The word comes from the Latin  ‘Beatus’ meaning Blessed – Jesus describes 8 groups of people who are blessed.

Our diocesan bishop, Bishop Steven, has asked all churches to spend time reflecting on them.  He has developed a new vision for us to be churches which are Contemplative, Compassionate and Courageous.  These verses essentially define what it means to be people who are like that – contemplative people who are poor in spirit, meek and pure in heart.  Compassionate people who mourn i.e. who can feel the pain of others, and are merciful.  And courageous people who hunger and thirst for justice, who are peacemakers, who are even willing to risk persecution for righteousness’ sake.

May we find fresh treasure in them as we soak ourselves in their wisdom.
