Jesus Speaks | An Irresistible Invitation | Mark 1:14-20

It is the most normal of days, in the most normal of scenes, as two sets of brothers are going about their everyday lives normally, with no thought of anything different nor any desire to change it. Yet, into their normal, God interrupts with the most normal of invitations, yet with the most profound eternal implications. Two words are spoken: “Follow me”, and four lives are changes that would eventually turn their world and the entire world upside down.

How would you respond? Or perhaps the better question is, how could you not respond to such an invitation for Jesus? Join us as we consider the call of four brothers who would leave everything to follow Jesus and, in time, take on his mission and mandate to change the world. Listen in as Andrew, our Ministers, challenges us to consider how we, as individual followers of Jesus, are living out the call to Go and model the Kingdom way as a people who go into the world around us and incarnate the good news of the Gospel in word and deed. And, consider with us what it means for each of our churches to understand both the priority of this kingdom work in our lives and living and what it means to be a church that goes with God into the communities he has called us to love and serve. Jesus says to follow him, and with the Power of the Holy Spirit in us - to him, we say: “Where you go, I will go.”

Warmth in the Midst of Winter: Join Us in the Winter Coat Proje

Warmth in the Midst of Winter: Join Us in the Winter Coat Project Warmth in the Midst of Winter: Join Us in the Winter Coat Project Imagine a cold winter's night in Belfast. Rain pours relentlessly, the wind howls, and the chill in the air cuts deep. It's a scene all too familiar for many in our community, where the unforgiving weather can be a daunting challenge. In these moments, a warm coat can be the difference between a difficult struggle and a glimmer of hope. It's a shield against the elements, a source of comfort, and a tangible expression of care from one human being to another. It's a reminder that, in our darkest hours, there are those who stand beside us, ready to offer warmth and support. The Winter Coat Project: Extending a Hand of Warmth In the spirit of compassion and community, we are delighted to announce the launch of the Winter Coat Project. This initiative holds great significance for us and aligns wit

Into the New Year at St Pauls & St Barnabas Into the New Year at St Pauls & St Barnabas After all that anticipation, it is hard to believe that Christmas 2023 has come and gone, presents have been bought and opened, turkeys have been cooked and eaten, friendships have been renewed, and families have been caught up with! Hopefully, amid all that busyness and stress, we were able to find space to gather in worship or reflect on the true meaning of Christmas: so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life. 16 For God loved the world in this way: He gave his one and only Son so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. - John 3:15-16 CSB We celebrate Christmas on the 25th of December each year because of our Gospel hope that from the manger to the Cross, Jesus came with a purpose - to make it possible for all who believe in his name, repent of their sin, and turn to him might live by Grace in
