For Sunday the 22nd of April - 10:00am

Better late than never!

One of the things we read in the Bible is how closely Jesus identifies himself with the Church. It’s not simply that the people of the Church are his followers, who more or less subscribe to and live by his teachings. It’s that the Church somehow is Jesus’ body, his presence in this world.

This Sunday we will be hearing about the conversion of Saul – a man who was violent in his opposition to the Church, but who encountered the risen Lord, and who changed to became ‘Paul’, the great missionary to people of all nations. We will be hearing about how Paul became a member of the body of Christ through receiving the gift of baptism, and we will be hearing about how God worked through Paul to bring many people into the life of faith in Christ. As a congregation we will consider how Paul’s story can help us to understand what God has done for us in our baptism, and we will consider how Paul’s example can help us understand the changes that God works in our lives.

This Sunday we will be meeting at 10:00am for a service with Holy Communion. Our Sunday school will meet at about 10:45am.

God’s peace to you,

Fraser Pearce, Pastor
