Faith Pictures is a short course designed to help Christians talk naturally to friends, neighbours and colleagues about what they believe. The heart of the course is about helping people to identify a single picture or image that embodies something of their faith. This is because the kinds of communication which best stick in the mind are concrete and rooted in story.

The course aims to be accessible and light-hearted, without jargon or inflexible methods. There will be some video content, and lots of talking! It will run for 6 weeks on Thursdays, 11.30am-12.30pm in the Church Lounge.

Session one, January 12th – Opening the conversation

Session two, January 19th   – The Power of the Ordinary

Session three, January 26th – Travellers’ Tales

Session four, February 2nd – Talking pictures

Session five, February 9th – Companions on the Journey

Session six, February 23rd – Hidden opportunities

Natural Evangelism – Spring 2017

Natural Evangelism – Spring 2017

This is our Sunday morning teaching series early this year. It is based on the book by J.John of the same name: The Natural Evangelism Course – J.John (ISBN 978-0-9928399-5-6)

The course is 6 weeks long – we’ll do it on Sundays and give out questions. Inevitably there is too much in each week so we are encouraging Life Groups to follow it up during the week. It also ties in with JustOne in July, and continues the series on Spiritual Gifts. It also links well with “Reach The Challenge” which we will encourage people to do in Lent.

Session 5 will also be a good lead into the plans for practical things during Lent.

An Encounter With God. Dave Middlebrook writes that we too can have that encounter with God through meeting Christ and, through the Christmas story, look into the very eyes of God! Each of us remains of infinite importance and value to God, and Christmas tells us that again and again.

How will you do in The Big Harvest Quiz?

Which events are you coming to during Advent and at Christmas? The Christmas Fayre, Carols and Mince Pies, Christmas Light Club, Nativity Services, Midnight Communion, Christmas Day All Age Celebration? There is something for everyone.

Dave Middlebrook writes about the Evangelism training that J.John gave us in preparation for the JustOne day next July.

There are pictures of the Maasai Warriors’ visit.

God Grows His Church. Dave prays that we can continue to hold onto, and work upon, the promise of Christ to his disciples, and to us: “I am the vine, you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing” John 15:5.

The Season of Invitation continues……. Who might we invite to come with us to church and to what event?

Deep Jyoti ‘Chori [daughter] Church’, Lamachaur, Nepal gives us an update of their building project.

Chris Jones asks what our experience of church is like? Are we connected? Do we feel like a passenger, hopping on and off without actually connecting to anyone, or do we feel like we’re in a wagon train attached to those who we are travelling with?

Alpha. What’s it about and who’s it for?

Wendy unpacks what God has been saying to her: ‘I want you to honour and serve me in your weakness.

Dave Clarke talks about Identity Theft.

A Season of Invitation is upon us. Who might we invite to come with us to church and to what event? Light Party? Maasai Warriors? Light Club Cinema? Christmas Puddings? And others.

J.John is coming to St Luke’s to help us in evangelism training in mid-October.

Dave Middlebrook reflects on the effect of losing their deeply loved family dog Holly. Are we as pleased to see Jesus as He is to see us?
