What's on

Church Ministries


There is a green hill far away,
outside a city wall,
where our dear Lord was crucified
who died to save us all.

We may not know, we cannot tell,
what pains he had to bear,
but we believe it was for us
he hung and suffered there.

He died that we might be forgiven,
he died to make us good,
that we might go at last to heaven, saved by his precious blood.

There was no other good enough
to pay the price of sin,
he only could unlock the gate
of heaven and let us in.

O dearly, dearly has he loved!
And we must love him too,
and trust in his redeeming blood,
and try his works to do.

Cecil Frances Alexander

While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 5:8

He has risen

Mark 16:6



Easter

It may seem only a matter of weeks since we celebrated Christmas and here we are looking forward to Easter. The time that is very special for the believer as we reflect on the remarkable sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Consider the reaction of the crowds on what is known as Palm Sunday, the cleansing of the temple, the parables and teachings, the Passover meal, that precede the events of Good Friday. When we contemplate the hours the Lord spent on the cross, with such cruelty and suffering for Him, taking the punishment we deserved. The culmination of our consideration is the resurrection and appearances of the risen Saviour, our hearts should burn within like those who encountered Jesus on the road to Emmaus.

Jairah Funds

Jairah Funds are organising a Shadows Tribute Night at Stock Street Church, Paisley on Saturday 19th of March, 7pm-10pm. Tickets are £5 with all proceeds going to supporting a Christian project in Jordan which helps refugees from Syria.

Hebrews

This month we will commence our study in the book of Hebrews one of the great books of the New Testament, where we find so many of the verses that mean so much to us as Christians.

There are numerous books and commentaries that can help our study. One of many is the Warren Weirsbie book, Lets Go. Where he covers themes such as, 'Victory' lets go in, claiming our spiritual inheritance and 'Maturity', lets go on, growing up in the Christian life. The best book of course is the Bible and reading the early chapters of Hebrews will whet your appetite for further study.

Mission Focus

Last month Mark was looking at the work of the Faith Mission, covering the bookshops that they run particularly in Glasgow and Edinburgh. A visit to a Christian bookshop is something that is worthwhile especially when purchasing a Bible or book. A recently published book that is recommended is, Parables by John Macarthur, the mysteries of God's Kingdom revealed through the stories Jesus told.

Did not our hearts burn within us while He talked
