During the mornings we will be continuing our study of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, described by John Stott as “probably the best known part of the teaching of Jesus…the least understood, and… the least obeyed.” Jesus reveals the values that underpin his Kingdom, and the counter cultural lives we are called to live by.

On 13 May we will be holding a combined service in the Parish Church at 10.30am, to share our vision of St James as a church that is Loving Jesus, Serving the Community and Growing Disciples.

During the school summer holidays the focus of our services in the Parish Church will be on our mission partners around the world, as well as reflecting on our own call to be Christ’s witnesses. At Cummersdale Church we will be studying the book of Malachi. Written over 400 years before the birth of Christ, but looking forward to the coming Messiah, it is a book that has a lot of contemporary resonance, as it speaks of God’s great love for us, and calls us to turn away from shallow religion and instead to live lives of true worship and obedience to God.

Starting in May our evening sermon series will be based around the book Everyday Supernatural. Most Christians believe in God’s power, yet few see evidence of the supernatural in their lives. We will be exploring how to live a Spirit-filled life that is consistent with Scripture, how to use the Spirit’s gifts as everyday tools, and how we can grow in knowledge and experience of the Holy Spirit.

RT Kendall is one of the greatest preachers of his generation. During August we will be listening to his challenging, and highly engaging talks from the New Wine Summer Conference 2017 on the topic of ‘The Church God Wants’.
