What did Paul mean?

This Sunday we are starting a new preaching series looking in detail at the earliest of all the New Testament manuscripts – the Apostle Paul’s first letter to the church in Corinth.

Written barely 25 years after that first Easter Day, it contains fascinating insights into 1 st century church life as well as eternal truths which speak directly into our 21 st century lives.

I am excited that as we get to grips with this letter over the next four months, it will enrich our spiritual lives, equip us to follow Jesus, and challenge and stretch us in using our gifts to build up the church and share the good news of the gospel by how we live, speak and act.

With love in Christ,


Coming up
