Sunday Playlist – The Threat Of Loss – Opening Doors To Others

It’s easy to think that healthy churches will never have disagreements. But that’s wrong. Every time God puts us in a new situation, opens up new doors of mission, or challenges us with new ideas, it’s easy for us to become defensive and controlling.

Sunday Playlist – The Threat Of Loss – The Only Way To New Life

Paul’s first missionary journey took him into new situations that he couldn’t have imagined. But God was working through him.

It’s just the same today for us.

Here are my song choices for this week’s Sunday Playlist podcast episode…

Stay Home. Try Alpha Online

The Alpha Course is designed for those who want to explore the big questions of life in a relaxed environment where no questions are off limits. We watch a video about an aspect of the Christian faith and then discuss it – simple!

We’re offering two opportunities before Christmas via Zoom to do Alpha; one on a Tuesday evening (starts 29th September) and the other on a Thursday afternoon (starts 24th September).

Sunday Playlist – The Widening Story – Telling Our Story Well

The early Christians had a better story to tell and they pass it to us to tell our own generation.

It’s a story that we all need to hear – again and again.

Here are my song choices for this week’s Sunday Playlist podcast episode…

Sunday Playlist – The Power Encounter – Dark Spiritual Powers

The apostle Paul’s experience in Cyprus offers us a picture of the exciting Christian life that offers good news to people.

As we think about his experience in Acts 13, we have the chance to see our own situations much clearer.

Here are my song choices for this week’s Sunday Playlist podcast episode…

Sunday Playlist – The Power Encounter – Herod

In Acts 12 we see people praying earnestly in the middle of the night; one of the disciples is executed, while the other is miraculously released from prison. But when he turns up at the house of prayer, the Christians just don’t believe it and try to explain it away.

It seems that like most of us, they were not actually bold prayer-warriors, but people who prayed with a mixture of faith and uncertainty, got down on their knees and prayed anyway.

In this latest podcast episode, I’ve chosen some songs to reflect on this story & inspire us…

Sunday Playlist – Acting Like Jesus – Together As Church

The church in Antioch was a flexible, generous, boundary-breaking church.

In this latest podcast episode, I’ve chosen songs to reflect on this & inspire us to keep growing…

Sunday Playlist – Acting Like Jesus – Healing

In Acts 9:32-43, we meet a woman who has two names; “Tabitha” in Aramaic and “Dorcas” in Greek. She was just one of those unsung heroes of the church community. Luke describes her as full of good works and charity and she was part of a group of widows who made clothes by hand. When she died, the weeping widows did what most of us do when we lose someone we love. They clung to items and memories associated with her; the clothes she’d made. They showed them to Peter as they grieved the loss of their close friend.

Here are some songs I’ve chosen that will help us reflect on this story…

Sunday Playlist – Acting Like Jesus – Faith Not Fear

Within 3 years of Saul’s dramatic conversion in Damascus, his life is under threat and he has to escape with the help of some disciples. This became a recurring theme throughout the rest of his life.

Saul paid a really high price to follow Jesus, but he was willing to count up the cost and decided it was well worth it.

In this episode of our Sunday Playlist podcast, I share some songs that explore this theme…

The Gospel Breaks New Ground – Enemies

In Luke’s tale of two visions, God calls two people to change their life plans in order for the gospel of Jesus to spread further.

In Luke’s tale of two visions, God calls two people to change their life plans in order for the gospel of Jesus to spread further.

Sunday Playlist – The Gospel Breaks New Ground – From Jerusalem To Africa

This week’s story from Acts 8 shows us the lengths that God goes to to show his love to outsiders and the willingness of people to deliver that message.

Here are some songs that explore the themes in the passage…
