7 August 2020 – Sunday services update: Parables series from Matthew’s Gospel

Sunday @ BBP 12 July  –  The Parable of the Sower – Church family updates, testimonies and the Parable of the Sower with Sean Cloete preaching.

 

Sunday @ BBP 19 July – The leaven – One of Jesus’ very short parables – the parable of the yeast in Matthew 13. Rodney Ramsay shares how the Holy Spirit has inspired people through the ages. In Mat 13:33 we read: ‘He told them still another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into a large amount of flour until it worked all through the dough.”‘ Just as the leaven expands , so too “… the Kingdom of heaven (and those who represent and proclaim it) has a dramatic effect on human society.” (The Gospel of Matthew, R T France, 2007). Rodney gives great examples in history of Christians who have impacted the world.

 

Sunday @ BBP 26 July – Kingdom Parables – Sunday’s prayers, family news, readings and message about the kingdom parables in Matthew 13. Seeds, plants, birds, wheat and weeds, and being witnesses where we are in the world. Is the Kingdom the focus of your life? Your treasure? Your all?

 

Sunday @ BBP 2 August 2020 – because they count we connect with them through the week. God with us. There are many reasons why people become disconnected from the local church. Some have been wounded along the way. Others are still trying to figure out things about God. We are to be with them in their life situation because that is our mission field. Listening and loving and being available to help them in the right direction. A look at aspects of Incarnational Mission.
