Ministers' letters, Social comment

I’m looking for a new hashtag. A hashtag is a phrase preceded by a hash sign (#), used on social media to identify messages on a specific topic. Better still if short or witty! You may know I enjoy reading the news, staying in touch with current affairs, as well as theology and ethics. Lately,…

Why Join a Growth Group?

Community, Ministers' letters

To answer the question: ‘Why join a Growth Group?’, we ought to ask what is God’s big plan for the world and for us. God’s big plan for this world is for people to be rescued, and for rescued people to grow. This was the case for God’s people at Colossae; when they trusted the…

What’s Your Vision?

Ministers' letters, Prayer

The summer holidays are almost done. It’s time to start thinking about the new year in earnest. Maybe most of our New Year’s resolutions are already broken, and we’re ready to face reality. School starts this week. Most of our regular ministries at church will start in the next week or two. So, what’s your…

Summer Psalms

Ministers' letters, Uncategorized

For as long as I’ve been at St Michael’s, we’ve had ‘Summer Psalms’  – a sermon series from the Psalter (book of psalms) in January. But why? Is it because the preachers need a holiday and psalms are easy? Or because they just love alliteration a bit too much? Or maybe because everyone is in…

My New Year’s Resolution

Ministers' letters

I don’t think I’ve ever achieved a New Year’s resolution. Or at least, not long-term! Every year I make a list of self-improvement strategies. Predictably, I plan to get fit and lose some weight; improve my saving and reduce spending; and for once, to stick at a Bible reading plan (yep, you guessed it: for…

“Have a vengeful Christmas, y’all!”

Ministers' letters

“Have a vengeful Christmas y’all!” These are the opening words of a viral Facebook post. The story goes that Sarah Belanger Demaneuf, from North Alabama in the US, was working in a retail chain 17 years ago when she encountered a very rich customer. This rich woman demanded that the price of Christmas star ornaments…

More than a gift

Ministers' letters

When you read this note, I will be with my family, visiting our daughter, Hannah, half way through ten months’ university exchange in Lyon, France. We’re taking a once-in-a-generation chance to visit Europe. I’ve never been before. This coming week, we are in London. We’ll also see a bit of Scotland, other parts of England…

Make Christmas Great Again!

Ministers' letters

Are you fed up with Christmas even before it’s here? Your eyes roll at the commercialism as you see the Christmas decorations go up earlier and earlier each year. You feel the pressure of Christmas shopping when the signs in the shops advise you that you’ve only got 6 weeks left until Christmas. And if…

New seasons for the 4Es

Ministers' letters

Unless you are brand new, you are probably getting the hang of how our “4E discipleship process” goes: E for Engage. We seek to engage the community, individually and as a church. E for Evangelise. We share the gospel of Jesus (evangelism) with people who do not know Christ, again individually, and via church activities…
