"Making mature followers in all nations for Jesus Christ"
"Do I stay or do I go?” "Was the UK right to leave the EU?” The question of leaving or staying can take many forms. But Jesus is very clear on the subject when it comes to his relationship with us: Stay. Remain. Abide. This week we will celebrate the claim he makes: “I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing (John 15:5)."
Left Behind A bunch of us find ourselves without families as we enjoy the heat and humidity of Hong Kong in the summer. This Sunday, there will be a Left Behind BBQ right after the 11:00AM service. Have you been abandoned by family and friends? Join us!
Bible Series Talk - ''Game of Thrones + Prophets' - Pastor Matthew
RSVP for Refreshments
The book of Kings records a 383 year power struggle. Though variously interpreted as wisdom literature, a storybook illustration of the principles in Deuteronomy, a legitimisation of the Temple (with a tragic conclusion), or by the 16th century Catholic Church as an obvious denunciation of the Protestant Rebellion, how do we meaningfully interpret stories of Solomon's 700 wives and 300 mistresses, a resurrection 800 years before Christ, and a queen fed to dogs? 'Kings' is a book about ten prophets representing the True Power behind warring thrones.
