‘When you hear of wars and uprisings, do not be frightened. These things must happen first, but the end will not come right away.’ (Luke 2:9, NIV)
It’s easy to look at what’s going on the world around us, and be frightened by what we see: wars, conflict and distress. Jesus points us to a time where there will be an end to all these things. You would be very welcome to join us at 10:50am in St Thomas, Northaw, or at 8:30am in St Thomas, Northaw, this Sunday, as we look at the the promised end to conflict.
Our Remembrance Sunday service is at 10:50am at St Thomas on 14th November. We’ll start outside at the memorial for an Act of Remembrance, before concluding the service inside the church building.
You would also be welcome at our 4pm service in St Thomas, Northaw, this afternoon, as we continue to look at the big picture of the Bible together.
Unfortunately, we’re not able to livestream the service this Sunday.
There is no children’s church this Sunday, as we all meet together at St Thomas for our Remembrance Sunday service.
Our 4pm service is this Sunday afternoon in St Thomas. It’s a less formal service, with a more contemporary feel — something slightly different to that which we normally do. This will be an experiment, running for 8 Sunday afternoons starting in October. For this first try, we’ll be looking at the whole story of the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. There will also be cake!
I’d love for you to join us for these afternoon services. It would be really great to have as many as possible exploring the storyline of the Bible together.
Our Remembrance Day service is at 10:50am at St Thomas on 13th November. We’ll start outside at the memorial for an Act of Remembrance, before concluding the service inside the church building.
