Events, Talks, News Sheets and more
Talk by Christoph Lindner at our 10.30am service on Sunday, 19th January 2020.
This talk is based on 1 Corinthians 1.1-9.
Here is the prayer used at the end:
Disturb us, Lord, when
We are too well pleased with ourselves,
When our dreams have come true
Because we have dreamed too little,
When we arrived safely
Because we sailed too close to the shore.
Disturb us, Lord, when
With the abundance of things we possess
We have lost our thirst
For the waters of life;
Having fallen in love with life,
We have ceased to dream of eternity
And in our efforts to build a new earth,
We have allowed our vision
Of the new Heaven to dim.
Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly,
To venture on wider seas
Where storms will show your mastery;
Where losing sight of land,
We shall find the stars.
We ask You to push back
The horizons of our hopes;
And to push into the future
In strength, courage, hope, and love.
(Attributed to Sir Francis Drake – 1577)

Healthy Family: The Adventure Begins
Today we are starting a new sermon series on being a healthy church family. This is part of our process of renewing our mission plan for the next years. You can listen to sermons again on our website: www.denhamparish.church/blog
Being disciples of Jesus
“The need for active, adventurous disciples of Jesus is as urgent as ever. There is a broken world in need of healing, good news to be shared and Kingdom work to be done, all energised by the Spirit so powerfully present at the baptism of Jesus and the birth of the church at Pentecost.” Andrew Roberts
Questions for Reflection
CHRISTMAS APPEAL: THANK YOU!
We raised £2000 during Advent and Christmas for our Christmas appeal. We will divide the amount equally between two charities: TRINITY/SHOC, who are changing lives for homeless people in our area, and TEARFUND, helping those who have suffered unimaginably due to conflict and poverty. Thank you for your generosity!
A big thank you to all who filled the Christingle Tubes £370.40 was raised which will go to The Children’s Society.
