Sent to heal

So far in this sermon series, focussed on the sending out of the seventy-two we’ve been thinking about the preparations for the journey, about how they were to go, where they were to go, what they might expect when they got there, and now today, finally, we get to think about the content of the […]

Sent to those we work with

In the weeks leading up to our Easter celebrations we are exploring the way in which Jesus sends us out. This week we’re looking at the idea that we are sent to the people that we work with. Now I know that not everybody here this morning is currently in paid employment. However, that is […]

Shining Light

So it’s the end of One Bright Week for another year. It really has been a week dedicated to letting the light of Jesus shine out across Telford, not hiding the lamp under a basket or under the bed, but putting it out in the community and letting it shine. Of course it all started […]

What is the Bible?

Over the next few months we’re going to be thinking about the Bible. Between now and Christmas we will look at the questions: What is the Bible? Why do we read the Bible? How do we read the Bible? This afternoon we’re starting with “What is the Bible”. Andrew has already started us off down […]

Vulnerable Urgency

So, tonight’s theme is “Equipping for mission”. I’m here to share with you some of what we’re doing in Priorslee, and some of our understanding of mission that has informed what we’re doing, and has come our of our experience there. I’m also here to find out if God is calling any of you to […]

Sent to proclaim

I wonder why you’re here this morning. It’s a lovely day, the sun is shining. Most people in this country aren’t in church. They are doing other things. Maybe they’re having a lie in or are out with the family. Maybe playing sport or shopping. Perhaps mowing the lawn or washing their cars. That is […]

Freedom

Twenty three years ago a man walked out of prison, having been locked up for twenty seven years. One of the consequences of that imprisonment was irreversible damage done to the tissue in his lungs by TB and the fine dust created by the rocks that he was set to break. That damage has been […]

Jonah and the Sailors – Conversion in Action

Our vision in Priorslee is for there to be a new congregation in Priorslee. This will mostly be made up of local people who will have come to faith in Jesus and will have decided to follow him.  This vision will only come into reality if people become Christians, if they convert to Christianity. In […]

Telling Story, Answering Questions

I understand that over the last couple of months you have been working your way through Luke’s account of Jesus’ life, and have, in the weeks since Easter ended up at the beginning of Acts, also written by Luke, just leading up to Pentecost. Have I got that right? This morning, I’d like to start […]

Greater Things

I wonder if you might take a journey with me in your imagination. Imagine that you are one of Jesus’ first followers. Maybe you’re Mary, always ready to sit at Jesus’ feet and listen. Maybe you’re Peter, a bit rough and ready, impulsive sometimes. Perhaps you’re more like Matthew, a civil servant, well educated and […]
