SUNDAY SERVICE: 10AM
theme for 2021: filled to overflowing
The first followers of Jesus were so transformed and ignited by their encounter with the risen Lord that "they could not help but speak about what they had seen and heard" (Acts 4:20). The gospel burst forth in their lives, in their speech and in their actions.
As followers of Christ we desire to be enlivened by His life that serving Him and sharing Him with others is natural and unstoppable.
In this New Year, what are we feasting on? The Master and Lord of the harvest has prepared for us a great banquet, a true feast. He first invites us to be filled to overflowing, so that we might overflow and invite others.
"Lord Jesus Christ, You stretched out Your arms of love on the hard wood of the cross that everyone might come within the reach of Your saving embrace. So clothe us in Your Spirit that we, reaching forth our hands in love, may bring those who do not know You to the knowledge and love of You, for the honour of Your Name. Amen."
