Following on from the previous series "Jesus, no Ordinary Man” But the challenge he left his followers and us today was how we could continue the work he started? So how can we become more like Jesus, and in our ordinary lives, become no ordinary people?

Pentecost Sunday , It's probably is the most significant event after Christmas and Easter. But what is it all about? Pentecost is when we remember the coming of the Holy Spirit upon the early followers of Jesus, this was the kick start of them continuing the mission Jesus had started and in many ways was the birth of the church. It enabled and equipped them for the task ahead.
Sunday 27th May
Following the arrival of the Holy Spirit the disciples change from people in hiding to declaring the good news of Jesus to thousands! They are empowered by this transformation and start the movement of the church that is still going some 2000 years later? Was it just something for the first followers of Jesus or is it something that we can have today?

Never judge a book by its cover”, “First impressions count” We all tend to make
judgements on people we meet don’t we? - people we like, people we don’t like, people who behave like us, and those that don’t. Yet the Good News of Jesus is for all! God taught the early disciples that God shows no favouritism. Good News for all!

Sunday 22nd July
Those earlier followers of Jesus became no ordinary people and in doing so other people joined them on that mission that continue to this day! Some of them with great stories of mission and adventure overseas, others just in the ordinary day to day lives. The challenge for us; what is our mission and how can we go about sharing our faith with the people around us?
