Through the Season of Lent in 2017 Christ Church looked at a number of Spiritual Disciplines, activities and habits that we’re called to cultivate in order to grow in godliness. Each week, as we looked at a different discipline, we were challenged to put the into practice in our lives and to engage in them together as a church.
The final section of the book of Acts chronicles the spread of the gospel beyond the borders of Israel and Samaria. This is just the beginning of the good news about Jesus being proclaimed to the ends of the earth. We carry on in the footsteps of the Apostles, continuing the work of sharing the gospel to those around us.

In this sermon series we’ve looked at the Patriarchs, the men and women who were first called by God to be his chosen people. They were people like us, faithful but at times foolish. Throughout we’ve seen how God continued to fulfil his promises and how he calls us to keep trusting in his provision.
