MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Tips for christian advocacy

Our three sessions are designed to give you some tips on how you, as an individual, can have an impact regarding current political and social justice issues.
 
There are many different ‘current issues’ impacting our society today with many different voices and perspectives and it is important that the Christian perspective is part of any current debate.  
 
It is good for us as Christians to be aware of and understand current issues, to  consider what the Bible says about them, and to  use our individual voices, emails, and letters to make a  difference.  

This short course will give you some tips on how you as an individual can ‘have your say’ credibly. We will also be discussing and  considering some current political issues, including euthanasia and the religious freedom legislation.


PHILLIPPIANS

Join us in this five week study of the book of Philippians.  Paul writes from prison to Christians who are experiencing opposition, encouraging them to imitate his life and attitudes.  By speaking of his own courage, commitment, confidence and contentment even in prison, Paul encourages the Philippians to respond similarly as they face opposition.  In doing so, he shows us that a Christian life of joy, peace, contentment, prayer, thanksgiving and devotion to Christ can transcend all circumstances.

Here is a story from one of the attendees at our last study of a book of the Bible - Ephesians:

This book has always been a favourite of mine and a go-to in times that I have struggled in my walk.  In going through Ephesians afresh with different eyes  I am constantly amazed at aspects and thoughts that I have not previously seen .
 
Pastor John is perhaps the finest bible teacher I have been fortunate to have over 50 years in some very good churches: with his enthusiasm for what he is teaching, his ability to transfer that enthusiasm to those attending the study, and is not afraid to tackle the sometimes tricky sections that others choose not engage in or simply state the politically appropriate line .
 
I would love to encourage anyone considering doing the next series on Philippians to do so confident that they will both enjoy the study but also inevitably improve their understanding and relationship with God as I truly believe that God uses Pastor John in a special way that does sound a bit Holy but I do actually believe this totally.

find your fit

Nicky Gumbell, from Holy Trinity Brompton and Alpha, has written in the You Version "Reading the Bible in One Year" plan the following regarding Ephesians 3  which is so timely given our study of the Book of Ephesians:

Do you want to be useful to God?  Do you want to make a difference - in your family and with your friends, in your school, university or workplace, to the nation and to the world?  This passage not only reveals the mystery of Christ, but it also shows you how, as a result, your life can make an impact.

Paul concludes, 'God can do anything, you know - far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams!' (v 20 MSG).  How is this possible?  Paul's answer is that it is possible 'according to His power that is at work within us' (v 20).

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, with our church building closed for public meetings,  it may appear harder to find where we can make a difference.  At the end of the Ephesians sessions (8 and 15 September) we are running Find Your Fit. This is a course of two sessions that will help you discover your gifts and passions and we will help you to find your fit within the church so that you can make a difference during this season and afterwards.
