In this talk by our visiting speaker, Ross Wilkinson, of Christchurch, Dunstable, we look at whether the apostle Paul was an optimist or a pessimist. Did he fret about his imprisonment in Rome or swing from the chandeliers in joy? Ross tells us that it was neither one nor the other: instead, Paul looked at […]
We are delighted to welcome Ross Wilkinson from Christchurch, Dunstable, as our guest speaker for the next 3 Sundays. Ross is speaking to us this week from the letter of Paul to the church in Philippi, an important city in Macedonia, to the north of Greece. He explains that the church may be showing some […]
While our Pastor, Richard Wardman is away, we continue in our selected series in Romans, by our church member, Colin Richards. In this, the third in his series, Colin speaks to us about the grace of God, as illustrated in His dealings with Abraham.
This week, whilst Richard is still away on sabbatical, our member Colin brings us the Word from Romans 10:5-15, entitled The Gospel of God. We hope God speaks to you through this Word.

After Jesus died, he rose from the dead. After he rose from the dead, he appeared to his followers. This talk tells us about the “loose ends” of Jesus’life on earth, particularly to do with Peter and John, two of the men that he was closest to. Listen to how Richard Wardman sums up this […]
This Good Friday Sermon looks at some of the last things Jesus said after he was nailed to the cross. Perhaps you are not surprised that a dying man should say “I am thirsty” or “it is finished”, but when you realize that this was all foretold ahead of time, you have just got to […]
Christians like to think of ourselves as people who bring good news – of forgiveness, of new life and that death is conquered by Jesus Christ’s death on the Cross. Colin Richards tells us in this talk that before we can have the good news, we have to accept the bad news: God hates sin, […]
Jesus continues to speak to his closest followers, and in this passage he explains that he will be going away very soon, and this may cause sadness. The paradox, Richard Wardman explains, is that this will also cause long term joy that no one can take away. Listen in to see why this is, and […]
