“You killed the author of life, but God raised him from the dead. We are witnesses of this. By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong. It is Jesus’ name and the faith that comes through him that has completely healed him, as you can all see.” (Acts 3:15-16, NIV)
As we look at some of the book of Acts over the next few weeks, one of the big themes is that Jesus is alive - it is Jesus who heals the man who couldn’t walk. Without the resurrection of Jesus, there would be no church for us to be a part of.
I hope you’ll be able to join us either in person, or online, as we look at how the the resurrection of Jesus changes our lives.
You would be very welcome to join us at our 10:30am service this Sunday. Please note that there should be no indoor mixing with anyone not part of your household or support bubble. You can, however, have social contact outdoors under the rule of 6 (or two households).
There will be a service of Holy Communion at 8:30am in St Thomas, Northaw, this Sunday.
The 10:30am Sunday service will be taking place simultaneously online and in-person at St Andrew. Streaming for the 10:30am service will start at 10:25am, and can be accessed directly via Facebook or YouTube, found on our website, and is advertised on our Facebook page and YouTube channel.
Because the service is now live, the audio from the 10:30 service will be available (01707 927907) later in the afternoon, once it has been processed. As well as the ‘dial-in’ service, audio recordings of all services are also available through SoundCloud.
