Children's Talk: Archers try to hit the target. Missing the target is one of the Bible's illustrations to describe us missing God's standards [sin] in the way we think, feel and do. Try as we might we miss the target because we are human. This is the reason for Jesus Christ coming into our world: in him we can be forgiven for falling short.
Morning Service [Acts 14;1-19]. Paul is on his first missionary journey. He faces intense opposition to the Gospel but for a long time declares is boldly. He and Barnabas have to flee for their lives from Iconium to Lystra. Here they encourage those listening to turn for empty, worthless idols to the living God. The mob catch up with Paul, he is stoned and left for dead.
Evening Service - Priests and sacrifices. In Leviticus chapters 1-5 the Lord declares that at the heart of true worship there must be a sacrifice for our sins, a priest to represent us before God and a sincere heart, that gives the best. Jesus Christ is the full and complete sacrifice and priest. We worship God in his name.

Two visiting preachers today. As always it was good to be there.
Children's Talk: we kept last week's theme - water is essential for life. Jesus Christ uses this as a picture when making one of his great claims. The claim is that he alone can satisfy the deep thirst we have in our souls.
Morning Service: Our guest preacher was John Mainwaring. In Mark chapter 4 Jesus Christ takes his disciples into a storm and then calms the storm, showing his control over nature and the events on our lives.
Evening Service: Our guest preacher was Huw Jones. He preached from Psalm 107:
Children's Talk: Water is essential for life. Jesus uses this as a picture and declares: "whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. " [John chapter 4:14].
Morning Service: In Acts 13 Paul is preaching in Antioch. In his sermon he declares the glory of Jesus through his resurrection from the dead and that through faith in him we are justified before God. Faith in Christ frees us from religion that tells us to do enough good to be acceptable to God - which becomes a terrible burden.
Evening Service: The second sermon on the Tabernacle. This tent was the place where God met with his people. The whole Tabernacle experience reminded the people of sins forgiven, God's goodness an mercy. It was built in approx 1300 BC but pointed forward the Good News about Jesus.

Morning Service - God has brought the Saviour Jesus: In Acts 13 Paul is preaching in the synagogue in Antioch. He declares that Jesus of Nazareth is the long expected Messiah. Religious leaders may have condemned him but even as Jesus dies God's great plan is happening: God has brought the Saviour Jesus. God assures us that Jesus is the Messiah by raising him from the dead.
Evening Service: Worship in the Wilderness. The Israelites are in the wilderness. God gives them detailed instructions on how they must worship him. They build the Tabernacle as he commands. The Tabernacle will be where God will be in the midst of his people. Here they will be assured of his presence, faithfulness and goodness. At the heart of their worship was the assurance that sin is atoned for through a sacrifice. This all points forward to Jesus Christ.
