Public Worship at the Tabernacle

DocumentName

from Sunday 5th July 2020

Many members and friends have been expressing their great anticipation for the resumption of worship in the Tabernacle, and that moment is now upon us. It would not be wise, however, to have a great crowd in attendance for the first week or two as we will need to prove our organisation and to gain proficiency in order to keep everyone as safe as possible. We hope that a good number will continue to use the livestream rather than attend. While the government has deemed it safe to open churches we are also warned that the Coronavirus has not gone away.

Gifts: Sowing and Reaping

Gifts: Sowing and Reaping
2 Corinthians 8.13 Sermon by Dr Peter Masters

The apostle's instructions for giving have often been found surprising, being chiefly spiritual matters.  The priority of the Gospel is emphasised even in relief offerings, and a precious list of aims and attitudes is given, bringing a reward of spiritual not fleshly enrichment.

Christ Describes Conversion to God

Christ Describes Conversion to God
Luke 15.3-4 Sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Christ's parable of the lost sheep tracks the giving of the parable to record crowds including many hostile leaders.  He emphasises that God's mercy is to individuals, showing the divine motive, our lost condition, the costly recovery of the lost, and the Saviour's ultimate victory.
