The Best Online (St Peters) Worship Service Yet?

Quenching the Spirit, Spiritual Gifts and Ephesians – Worship from St Peters 4th March 2018

Last Sunday was a great Lord’s Day for us – again the joy of knowing the presence of the Lord…the recording for the whole service did not work in the morning but we did manage to get the sermon – this was on 1 Thessalonians 5:16-20.  The Lord’s timing for me was fascinating…..I did not know that I would be preaching on this when the … Continue reading Quenching the Spirit, Spiritual Gifts and Ephesians – Worship from St Peters 4th March 2018

God’s Word for Church and Community – St Peters Services 25th Feb with Robin Sydserff, Andy Robertson – 1 Thessalonians 5 and Psalm 82

Last Sunday was a special day for us.   In both the morning and evening there was a real sense of the Lord’s presence.  I thought Robin’s sermon in the morning was a stunningly appropriate one for St Peters (and I suspect for many other congregations), and our evening communion – looking at Psalm 82 – helped a number of people.  Our God is a God … Continue reading God’s Word for Church and Community – St Peters Services 25th Feb with Robin Sydserff, Andy Robertson – 1 Thessalonians 5 and Psalm 82

What’s Gone Wrong? The State of the Church in Scotland today

Portrush, Romans 5, Ephesians 3 – The Advance of the Gospel and the Church

I am currently in Portrush Northern Ireland to speak at a unique occasion – eight churches have got together and are cancelling their individual services and all meeting together this morning in the University of Coleraine.  It’s encouraging that they are willing to do this (Presbyterians taking risks is unusual!) although it’s kind of a shame that its just the Presbyterians!   The weather is atrocious … Continue reading Portrush, Romans 5, Ephesians 3 – The Advance of the Gospel and the Church
