Paul’s First Missionary Journey

Paul’s First Missionary Journey

Paul was the first great missionary of the Christian church and on his first missionary journey in AD 46-49 he planted a number of new churches in Cyprus and modern day Turkey. As Christ Church seeks to be a missionary church, we can learn much from the difficulties that Paul and his companions faced and the way the Holy Spirit worked through them to proclaim Jesus Christ.

A Christian response to TED Talks

A Christian response to TED Talks

TED talks are a number of high quality monologues by leading experts on a whole range of topical subjects. Accessed through the Internet, they have been watched by thousands of people. During this series we will watch four of these talks and then listen to a Christian response to their contents. All truth is God’s truth and a thorough Christian evaluation of the wisdom on offer in our world is an important part of both following Jesus Christ and proclaiming him to the world.

Christian faith is only meaningful when it affects the way that we live and, in particular, when it leads us to serve God. This can be done in many ways but during this series we will look at a number of practical ways in which we can serve God at Christ Church. Many of these involve discovering the power that is unleashed when people cross social boundaries with God’s love.

A Vision for six30

A Vision for six30

If the six30 service is to grow and reach its full potential, we need to possess much greater clarity about what God is calling the service to be. The aim of this series at the start of 2017 is to play a key role in shaping and developing this vision. During January we need to be praying that God will help us clarify this vision so that we can then be led into ways of putting it into practice.

A verse that sums up Christmas for me

A verse that sums up Christmas for me

Alongside our traditional Christmas services, there will be a number of services during Advent where our preachers pick out a single verse from the Christmas stories. They will then go onto explain how the verse and its contents sums up Christmas for them. For many of us there is deep familiarity about the Christmas stories which can serve to dull their impact upon us. The idea behind this series is that certain key verses will then stay with us throughout the Christmas period and help us reflect more deeply on the wonder of what God did when he sent his Son Jesus Christ into the world.

Gospel Questions

Gospel Questions

‘Gospel’ means ‘Good News’ and specifically ‘The Good News that God has come to rescue his people in Jesus Christ’. This leaves us, however, with a number of questions about the nature of this rescue and what is included within it. During this series we will take four questions about Jesus and ask how key things that he said or did relate to the Good News that he came to proclaim and embody.
