A Christian Perspective on…

A Christian Perspective on…

Within our lives we confront a whole variety of different issues. Some of these issues are deeply personal to us, whilst others possess a more national or global nature. The wisdom contained in the Bible can be applied to any subject, however modern, and help us to make greater sense of those things upon which we might otherwise remain confused. During this series, we will seek to tackle a number of very different subjects and, in each case, we will seek to gain a greater understanding by reflecting upon what a Christian perspective has to say into them.

Emotionally Healthy Spirituality

Emotionally Healthy Spirituality

During this series, our sermons will use the book Emotionally Healthy Spirituality by Peter Scazzero to explore the vital connection between Christians growing towards spiritual maturity and confronting our emotional issues. Scazzero is a church leader in America who had to learn this lesson the hard way and his book is the result of God leading him to a biblical integration of emotional health, a relationship with Jesus and the classic practices of contemplative spirituality. This will be a tough series as we explore the all too common signs of emotionally unhealthy spirituality but the aim to help all of us to move further towards the fullness of life that God intends us to discover through our relationship with him.

Why I am a Christian

Why I am a Christian

Over the last few years, we have used the month of August to have different members of Christ Church talk about ‘Why I am a Christian’. These have turned out to be some of the most popular and helpful talks that we have had during the year, with plenty of downloads recorded on the Christ Church website. This year will be the same, with a number of different members of Christ Church telling us some of the story of their lives and the key factors that have led them to be Christians.

The most important thing I’ve learnt about God in the last five years

The most important thing I’ve learnt about God in the last five years

God wants all of us to be constantly growing in our relationship with him. Sometimes this process will happen more through the tough times in our lives than those moments where we feel most obviously blessed. Being honest about this can be a great encouragement to others as they go through difficult times in their own lives and wonder where God can be found in it all. During this series, four members of Christ Church will share the experiences that they have had over the last five years of their lives and the most important things that they have learnt about God during this period.

Developing a Vision for Christ Church

Developing a Vision for Christ Church

The Bible is full of exciting visions of what God intends to do for the world and for those who follow him. Much of the Christian life is about trying to catch God’s vision for our common life together and the work that he is calling his people to do. During this series we will look at various different parts of the life of Christ Church and its members, and seek to discern what God wants these roles and ministries to look like as we move forward. In the 151st year of Christ Church and alongside the opening of the new halls that we have built for children and young people, it is an opportune moment to reshape our agendas in the light of the vision that God will reveal as we seek his will.

Thinking afresh about…

Thinking afresh about…

The Christian life should be one of constant discovery, as we learn new things about God and what he has done for us in Jesus Christ. One of the reasons why the Bible contains so much narrative is precisely to facilitate this. During this series, we will look at a number of very familiar Christian beliefs and ask fresh questions about their significance and implications for how we live our lives. Ascension Day, Pentecost and Trinity Sunday are all important points in the Christian calendar and are included within this series as we seek to grapple with what these occasions represent and how this should shape our life at Christ Church. The Bishop of Kingston will also be helping us on 21 st May to think afresh about the relationship between Science and Christianity.
