The Story

Exploring some of the stories we find in the bible.  What do these stories tell us today about God and us?  What encouragement and  challenge can we take from these  familiar and not so familiar characters that we often look back on as heroes of faith;  people who achieved so much, yet like us were human too?

Sunday 3rd Septemeber - Jonah

Looking at the familiar story of Jonah and the whale, but is there more to this story than just running from Gods call and more about God grace?

Sunday 24th September - Elijah

Unlike Gideon, this guy has loads of confidence when he challenges people. But where did he get that from and did he always feel that way?  Maybe you have times when you are prepared to make a stand, but it’s often because it’s been developed in small places first!

Sunday 15th October

the only book in the Bible where God is not mentioned, and  apparently is absent. If we are honest, It seems sometimes that God is absent, hiding, asleep. But the amazing narrative of Esther reveals that God is most powerfully and lovingly present when he appears most absent.

Sunday 22nd October - Nehemiah

Nehemiah a normal, everyday, average guy who was living a posh life. But he develops a heart for God’s people, has a radical faith and a courageous soul, lays out a plan. His heart breaks for God’s people and he does something about it.   Might God just also use also  if you are willing?

Sunday 19th November - Ruth

Ruth,  a tale of purity, faithfulness, innocence, loyalty, duty and love, yet it is set in dark times.  It shows us that there is hope when times are tough and life does go as we planned.  What can we learn from this story about how these woman showed their trust in God to allow his purposes to be fulfilled, even when times feel tough?

Sunday 26th November  - Samson

Samson,  the story of Hollywood movies -  the long haired warrior chasing after bad woman!  But what can we learn from this story and how come he ends up in the heroes of faith
alongside the likes of Gideon and David?  God can use our strengths, but we also need to
understand where our weakness can let us down.
