Why did Jesus Suffer and Die?

Date 27th October 2013  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage 1 Peter 2:13-25

We probably don’t think much about death; we certainly don’t like talking about it. We also don’t talk much about the death of Jesus except around Easter, but we should do so more often. In the Apostles’ Creed the church confesses: ‘We believe in Jesus Christ…who suffered under Pontius Pilate; and was crucified, dead and

Elijah: Dare We Trust in God

Date 27th October 2013  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage 1 Kings 17:7-24

Date 06th October 2013  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage 1 Kings 16:29-17:6

This morning we begin our series looking at some of the core values that we believe our church holds onto. The first is the Gospel, which is at the heart of all we say and do. If we are honest every one of us at one time or another has been ashamed of the gospel.
