The Praise Service tonight
Our Lent Services
The Youth Club
Staff at SWAH
The season of Lent begins this week and, as part of that, we also begin our 6 week series of Wednesday evening services at 8pm. This year, we will consider the first 6 of the "Fruit of the Spirit" as listed by St Paul in his letter to the church in Galatia. It may seem that these themes are very "cosy" for Lent, but they are actually extremely challenging. They are the qualities that show the change that the Holy Spirit has made in our lives, and, if we fail to demonstrate them, then we need to question how open we really are to the work of God in our lives. So we'll be examining how we fall short of this and prayerfully seeking the strength and wisdom to change and to grow and to bear the fruit.
