In this series will be therefore look at a number of very practical ways in which we can both ‘do church’ and ‘be church’ better.

Guidance for Young Christians

(Paul’s letter to the Colossians)

I Believe In... (unpacking the Apostles' Creed)

I Believe In... (unpacking the Apostles' Creed)

Written in the early days of Christianity, the ‘Apostles' Creed’ is a summary of the central elements of Christian belief.  It contains a number of vital truths about God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit but also the Church and our future hope.  During this series (which will continue into November), we will take a different line of the Creed each week, unpack its meaning and look for its application as we seek to follow Jesus today.

Being a Gospel Church (1 Thessalonians)

Being a Gospel Church (1 Thessalonians)

Written to a fairly new church, Paul’s first letter to the church at Thessalonica, 1 Thessalonians focuses on the ways in which ‘the Gospel’ or ‘Good News’ of Jesus Christ should shape everything about the life of the church. After a couple of introductory sermons asking ‘What is the Gospel?’ and how it first arrived at Thessalonica, we will then go through 1 Thessalonians seeking to apply its truths to our context at Christ Church.

During this series in September we will therefore be thinking about how we respond as Christians to the current issues of ‘Alcohol’, ‘Parliamentary Corruption’, The ‘Pick ‘n Mix’ culture and ‘Swine Flu’.
