Why all the Singing, Praise and Worship?
We sing songs of praise as instructed in many places through the Bible. We do so with enthusiasm, passion and adoration. It is an expression of our thanks to God for the new life that He has given to us. We often become deeply moved by the Spirit of God during our times of worship as we experience the presence of the Living God.
What is the ‘Lord’s Table’?
We celebrate the Lord’s Table or the Communion Service as Jesus Christ instructed us. Each week we remember again the depth and power of God’s love for us. God gave His one and only Son to take the punishment for our sin and wrong doing. Jesus Christ became sin with our sin in order that we might have a right relationship with God through His sacrificial death. He rose from the dead triumphantly to give us new life. This is the great foundation of the Christian faith. Every believer in Jesus Christ is welcome to celebrate the Lord’s Table with us.
What are the Spiritual Gifts?
We often allow time in our service for the Holy Spirit to speak to us through the ‘Gifts of the Holy Spirit’ to encourage, comfort and strengthen us. The Holy Spirit clearly impresses His message upon a believer in the form of an inspired message (prophecy), a message in another language with the interpretation (tongues and interpretation) and other similar messages.
Although these messages may sound unusual, they are normal practice for Christians who understand the person and work of the Holy Spirit. These times often involve praying for our city, our nation and special needs that people may have. If you have a special prayer request, please note the details on a Prayer Request Card and give it to one of the ushers.
