Sunday 11th April 2021

This Easter Season we have taken a different approach to the usual sermons and teaching at church. Instead, we have used a Lectio Devina, which is a way of reading scripture that helps us to see a passage in a new way and encourages us to listen to what God wants to say to the individual. We have been reading the Easter Story from Luke’s gospel, and this week we look at Jesus on the Road to Emmaus. Here two of Jesus’ disciples don’t recognise Jesus until he breaks bread with them, and it makes me ask, would I recognise Jesus if he showed up today? If you’d like to know more, please visit our website for a link to our YouTube Services.
