Prayer and Evangelism: - Kathy Pluck and Pastor Reid Matthais

The Division of Labour: - Pastor Reid Matthias

November 12th, 2018

When Jesus saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.  Matthew 9:36
When we take Jesus’ compassion seriously, we recognise a new perspective on evangelism – he sees this group of people as a beautiful and bountiful crop for God’s kingdom, ripened to perfection.

The Power of Honest Evangelism: - Vicar Mat von Stanke

November 4th, 2018

We are involved not just in the physical world but also in a spiritual battle. When we take the Word of God and the message of salvation in Christ out into our community we would be foolish to think that the enemy would simply move out of the way and let the ‘Christian soldiers’ trample through his territory. The more serious we get about sharing Jesus’ love with others the more resistance we can expect to face.

What is Your Story?: - Pastor Reid Matthias. With Kathy Pluck

From birth, the blind man had not been able to see, and after an encounter with Jesus, what was previously only a dream had become reality. From this experience, the seeing man begins the long, arduous, beautiful journey of evangelism.   The story of the seeing man and the experience of our speaker this week, Kathy Pluck, as we see the evangelical scriptures from a different perspective.
1 Peter 3:15-18 John 9:13-25
