At a time when everything seems to be on a knife edge and we’re not sure what will happen next, the book of Acts is really helpful. The church was birthed into the unknown. They didn’t know what happen next, but they learned to respond to the moving of the Spirit because they were really aware that they weren’t in control of things.
As we remembered the greatest week in history on Easter Sunday, we now continue the story of how the risen Jesus changed the world, through his disciples and by his Spirit, as recorded in the book of Acts. Here are a few songs to kick us off on our journey.

When we think about the cross on Good Friday, it’s not just some religious activity that we engage with; it’s because we know that we’re set in motion by the power of the cross, we’re energised by it, we’re upheld by it, we’re guaranteed a future by it, we’re secured for the future because of it.
Good Friday is not the whole story, but it’s worth slowing down because it’s such a vital part of the the story.
