Term 2 2022 - Letter to the Philippians
This term we're delving into Paul's Letter to the Philippians. It is always a beautiful thing to hear the apostle Paul addressing God's people. To hear his thanksgiving for them, and also his prayer. It always seems to reveal as much about him as it does about them.

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).
