Ascension Day 2019

It’s Ascension Day, and we are reminded of the parting words of Jesus, as he entrusted the mission of sharing the gospel to his timid small group of disciples.

Acts 1:8 Today, we are entrusted with this same mission. Thy Kingdom Come, now in its 4th year,… [Continue Reading]

The First Evangelist

On the day of Pentecost the Holy Spirit descends on the Apostles like ‘tongues of fire’ and they begin to speak in other languages. The people are amazed at this miracle and about 3000 are baptised that day. Wait, no. That’s not what it says in Acts 2. They began to speak in other languages and the people were confused. Some were ‘amazed and perplexed’ and others thought the Apostles were drunk. So what happened to turn confusion into conversion?… [Continue Reading]
