    After Easter

    Food for Thought
    Can you believe it? Easter Sunday has already past! The worship services have been meaningful as worshippers reflect on the suffering, death and resurrection of our Lord! How does this impact our daily lives? We are known and valued by God, more than we can even understand!
    Over the next couple of months, the theme for the worship services will be taken from Matthew 5; 1-12 - the Beatitudes. A definition for the word 'Beatitudes' could be 'the condition or statement of being blessed'. Some theologians have said that the word 'blessed' basically means 'happy'.This is true, but I believe that to be 'blessed' is a deeper experience than a feeling of happiness. More on that later.
    Jesus complete 'Sermon on the Mount' starts with the Beatitudes in Matthew 5 and continues to the end of Matthew 7. Join us as we hear the words of Jesus and seek to apply them to our everyday lives.
    Blessings in Christ.
