Winter Series - The Lord's OTHER Prayer
“After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed, “Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you.”
John 17 is a prayer of Jesus Christ addressed to his Father, immediately before his betrayal and crucifixion; the events which are often referred to as his glorification. We'll be looking in depth in this beautiful prayer, from Son to Father, over the three weeks of the Winter holidays - Jesus' prayer for himself, His prayer for His disciples and His prayer for His church.
Term 3 2022 - The Book of Numbers
“The LORD said to Moses, “How long will this people spurn Me?
And how long will they not believe in Me, despite all the signs which I have performed in their midst?”
Each year we spend a term looking more deeply into an Old Testament book - this year we've set ourselves to study the book of Numbers. We'll be following Moses and Israel's journey from the foot of Mount Sinai to the edge of the promised land of Canaan, and exploring God's faithfulness to His people, even through their rebellion and complaints.
Some more about our Preaching Program
Preaching the word of God is a matter very dear to us. We believe that we have in the Bible "the most precious thing this world affords" - a jewel of great price. In the Scriptures God makes known to us his will and his character, his thoughts and his ways. And so we aim to work our way through the Bible in a way that is accessible and manageable.
We try to not simply preach from the Bible (those things which stuck out to us and appealed to us), but to actually preach the whole Bible (even the bits we might happily have skipped over or don't really fully understand).
It is our practice to align our preaching series with the school terms. We find this coordinates things well with other areas of church life, as well as producing blocks of a good length.
During the 4 terms in each year, we will look at all or part of: a Gospel, a New Testament letter, an Old Testament book, and one other (maybe another of any of these categories, or even something topical or systematic).
