Rain – PowerPoint Quiz

Rain – PowerPoint Quiz
A fun quiz that suitable for use in a Family Service / School Assembly / Kids Club or just for a bit of fun!


(Was used in a Junior school assembly and was a fun/educational lead into the DVD story of Elijah the Prophet (the Bible: 1 Kings chapters 17&18) from the Friends and Heroes DVD)

The Net

As the saying goes; ‘Due to circumstances beyond our control…”

A really good night at ‘The Net’ (outreach to men) despite a rearranged programme. Due to a family bereavement our planned lecturer/speaker for the evening understandably had to pull out of tonight’s event. This meant spending a few hours today putting together an alternative programme. Panic over!
Not really! When I checked with our usual venue about how we wanted the room arranged, I discovered that they were not expecting us and had hired out the room to someone else!


A new venue found (thanks West End Chapel).
The activity could go ahead and despite my frantic day, it was a great privilege at the end of the day to share the gospel with a bunch of men.

The original theme for the evening was going to be a lecture on ‘The Pilgrim’s Progress’, which is the world’s best selling book after the Bible. I was able to sharing some facts and trivia concerning this unique and remarkable book, this then provided a natural platform for me to bring a gospel message and challenge to the non-Christian men who came along.

The end result of a rearranged day – Good seed sown, please water it with your prayers and let the Holy Spirit do his work (John 16:8 – “He… will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment”)

Final thought: With God there are no accidents only appointments! Everything has a purpose!

Love Your Enemies!

Good time this morning preaching at Velmore Church, Chandlers Ford, Hants.

It is always great when at the end of a service someone comes up to you and says; “Thank you! That message this morning was just for me!”

Although as a preacher you hope everyone got blessed from a particular message, your constant prayer is to ‘scratch where people itch’ or as the Bible puts it to have a ‘word in season’.
