Our Good Samaritan: a sermon from 14th July 2019

When we approach Jesus, are we looking for the loophole, for the trick, for an excuse: or are we really open to his challenge? Are we willing to accept help - or do we think that help should look a particular way, or come from a particular professional? Are we willing to accept Jesus - on his terms? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kx4OX3qNPUY

Children’s Society: a sermon from 23rd June 2019

What are your first memories of your childhood? Did you feel safe; have fun; feel loved? For many children today, they can't answer yes to all three - let alone just one.
