ATONEMENT

April 11, 2013 Members' Notices
Thumbnail image for ATONEMENT As Jesus dies on the cross He says “it is finished.” His job is done, he has been obedient to God’s calling, he has allowed himself to be captured, cross-examined, cruelly abused, crucified. His life is over, it is done, it is finished. But what exactly has he done? I explored this in a sermon […]

Looking forward to 2013

January 3, 2013 Members' Notices
Thumbnail image for Looking forward to 2013 Last Sunday morning at Moortown was a bit different, with the children/young people in all the way through the service and a very interactive and noisy (or should I say vibrant) service it was!

Defining the devil! Pete Jorysz muses on our reluctance.

November 8, 2012 Members' Notices
Thumbnail image for Defining the devil! Pete Jorysz muses on our reluctance. I was struck by the bravery of Cas Stoodley choosing to discuss the devil with primary school children this week (see MBC web-site,) but reflected on how little we discuss the devil as adults.

Thumbnail image for A welcoming space Anyone looking at our web-site this week, or visiting the church offices, will note the major refurbishment work being done to the meeting area.
