Whether you are new to Broadway, or have been coming forever, we are thankful that you have chosen to worship God with us. We are also very thankful to all the many people who serve us on a Sunday each week in a vast number of ways. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to meet together each week so wonderfully. There are several verses in the bible that encourage us to serve. In 1 Peter 4:10 we read “Each of…

Blog Spot – Advet: The Jesse Tree (Rosalind Singleton)

Advent Tradition:  The Jesse Tree A shoot shall come out from the stump of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots.Isaiah 11:1 When I was growing up the 1st of December was a much anticipated and important day in the year.  It was when my brother and I finally got our advent calendars and could open the first door to see the picture behind. We were also allowed to start playing our small but well-loved collection of Christmas…

Christmas is Coming (Gift Edition)

Christmas is Coming… “…and the goose is getting fat, please put a penny in the old man’s hat”! But that’s not what I want to talk to you about today, well not fat geese and old men’s hats anyway. Christmas is indeed coming, and if, like me, you’ve started to ponder what on earth you’re going to buy your friends and relations this year, I would like to suggest a few small Christian businesses who may sell just the thing…

Blog Spot – Charism (Michael Manning)

You gave the light and bade us go flourish in a freer, hope-strewn worldbut I half-hesitant in stumbling steps missed yet the dance.My light flickered, flaming, weak in the wind that hurledme shelterless across the lands and down, down into the depths’ remonstrance. Long years I searched there, diminished vain futility I bought and bartered,searching for a buried pearl, a silver coin, a courage seam coal-black,rich whispered deposits of the dead, marrow of the martyredthat would see my kindling spark…

NEW PLAYLIST ALERT

Here’s another playlist suggestion for you! In fact, I might even spoil you and give you two! Both are from our Sunday Live meetings. The first, is our Big Questions playlist. During Sunday Live, Bill, Emma, Josh and many special guests tackled some of the big questions people have surrounding faith and Christianity. For example, “why are there so many bad Christians?”, “Can you really base your life on the Bible?”, and “Can faith and science really live together”…to name…

NEW PLAYLIST ALERT

It’s been a while since I let you know of the playlists available over on our YouTube account, so, allow me to tell you about the next one, called “Fruity Flavours”. A while back Sunday Live took a look at the Fruits of the Spirit, and we have complied a playlist of all those sessions so you can revisit the words of wisdom whenever you like: Fruity Flavours#playlist #youtube

Blog Spot – The One About The Stolen Bag (Alison Leishman)

Alison was readjusting to life back in London after living somewhere quite different for nearly 8 years. It wasn’t easy; she didn’t feel as if she quite belonged. She had been told to expect this “reverse culture shock”. Here the roads were busy, and life had a rush to it that she had forgotten, while living at the Leprosy Hospital in a small Himalayan Kingdom. She missed the friends she had made, some of whom had been leprosy sufferers.  She…

Blog Spot – A Vast Radiance (Michael Maning)

“And above the dome over their heads there was something like a throne, in appearance like sapphire; and seated above the likeness of a throne was something that seemed like a human form…and there was a splendour all round. Like the bow in a cloud on a rainy day, such was the appearance of the splendour all round. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD.             When I saw it, I fell on my…

Blog Spot – Breaking A Horse (Rosalind Singleton)

“My (only) sacrifice (acceptable) to God is a broken spirit.” Psalm 51 V17 “Sustain me with a willing spirit” Psalm 51 V12 A few months ago, I was praying for someone when the word “broken” jumped into my mind.  I instantly argued against this because I knew the person was not broken and useless, which I initially associated this word with.  But then God gave me the picture of a horse submitting to its bridle, and I realised that this…
