by Wyn and Angela Evans

Reaching rural Wales As you travel through Wales, especially its beautiful countryside, you will notice, dotted on the hills round about, isolated farms, so remote, not only from each other, but from the rest of the community. The thought occurred to us that not only are these farms isolated geographically, but more importantly, spiritually too….

Can we really believe the Old Testament? Do you believe that Jonah was swallowed by a great fish? Do you believe that Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were cast into a furnace and came out alive and unhurt? Was Daniel actually thrown into the lions’ den and saved by the angel of the Lord? Do you…

The ten loves of John R.W. Stott

by Christopher Idle

The ten loves of John R.W. Stott John Stott (1921–2011) was the ten-talent man with more than ten loves. But since he appreciated order (in moderation!) these make, if not a complete summary, at least a convenient glance at a multi-faceted life. He loved his Lord; our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Handel’s Messiah A tingling down the spine, or tears rolling down the cheeks is quite normal for those who hear or participate in Handel’s Messiah. To attend Messiah, which is a musical gospel tract telling the story of ‘the Anointed One’, Jesus the Messiah, is a must-experience in life. Composed by George Friedrich Handel, it…

Our love for one another

by J Elwyn Davies

Our love for one another ‘This is My commandment, that you love another as I have loved you’ (John 15:12). I wonder whether you’ve ever asked yourselves, ‘Why did our Lord call this commandment His commandment?’ This was His commandment in the sense that it was peculiarly His. No-one else had given this commandment before;…

Loving the church which Jesus loves: reflections on church unity

by Peter Milsom

Loving the church which Jesus loves: reflections on church unity Why should we be concerned about Christian unity? Christian unity is very important because it expresses visibly what we are ‘in Christ’ and also our relationship with all other Christians.

1 Corinthians

The Bible has a lot to say about unity amongst God’s people. We can read stories of united churches (Acts 2 and 6), hear Jesus pray for unity amongst believers (John 17), and see ultimate unity as all believers join in worship (Revelation).

by John Orchard

Gospel churches working together In Bridgend there are several evangelical churches that for the last few years have been forging a strong partnership. This does not sound unusual until you understand this is neither a lowest-common-denominator ecumenical movement, nor a group of very similar churches, but churches that differ a great deal on important secondary…
