Equip in Spring

Ministers' letters

Spring is in the air! I have a theory that the week leading up to the October long weekend is always a foretaste of the warmth to come, and that theory has certainly been upheld this week. There will be cold and bleak (and hopefully wet) days to come before summer hits, but this is…

The Quiet Time

Ministers' letters

Here is an extract from the most helpful article I ever read on personal Bible reading and prayer.

Let’s Talk About Sin

My ‘Real Life’

“I have Jesus sorted out, so now I need to focus on my real life; my studies, and career, and lifestyle.” I remember a young Christian saying this to me. I had just asked them if they were sure they were going to heaven. They answered “Of course! I have Jesus sorted out, so now…

Preachers and Congregations

Ministers' letters, Prayer

Friends in Christ,  Recently I have been reading Paul’s first letter to the Thessalonians and was struck by the way he wrote of both his teams’ preaching and how the Thessalonians had received it. In both the preachers and the hearers, the gospel had come to them “not only in word but also in power…

Mother’s Day

Ministers' letters, Social comment

It seems to be upon us even before Easter is over. If you believe the hype, it’s all about flowers, chocolates and gifts; and smiling, happy families. But it can be a day that brings all sorts of emotions. Some of us dread it. Some of us love it. Some of us embrace it. Some of…
