The English Reformation & the Puritans
"In this 12-part series, Dr. Michael Reeves surveys Puritan theology and the work of the Holy Spirit when the Reformation flourished in England. Major milestones of this movement underscore the Puritan's special place in history, as they displayed spiritual wisdom and discernment still benefiting pulpits and believers today."

Our "In a Small Village" booklet was updated for our
80th Anniversary in 2014
This is a very interesting and well written history of the Chapel.
The author, Ken Orman, is a former elder and treasurer of the chapel, and is one of our members who attended those very first meetings as a boy.

What are these all about?
Creeds, etc. have been used to summarise the essential truths of the Christian Faith ever since the early church. They were often agreed upon to prevent error and answer false teaching. They are not a substitute for the Bible but based on it. The linked site (click on the graphic above) brings the main ones together and includes some interesting articles about them.

Sunday Evening at 6.30 pm
27th May 2018
We had a most blessed visit from 
Pastors Mvula Mvula, Gift Mtintha
and Justice Chiphwany

Arranged by the Zambesi Mission
Pastors Mvula Mvula, Gift Mtintha and Justice Chiphwanya
The Zambesi Mission (zm) arranged for Pastors Mvula Mvula,
Gift Mtintha and Justice Chiphwanya to visit the UK
in May/June 2018. We are very pleased to have been invited to host them. 
zm aims to foster “partnerships in the Gospel” between Christians
and churches in the UK and their counterparts in Malawi and northern Mozambique.
They recognise that our partnership in the Gospel is not just a one-way relationship.
The aim of inviting church leaders from Malawi to visit churches in the UK is two-fold:
Firstly, they want to bring the partnership to life
by actually meeting leaders from the church in Malawi.
Secondly, as part of our interdependent relationship,
they/we wish to learn from God through our Malawian brothers in Christ.
zm believes that there are many ways in which the church
in this wealthy (and often materialistic) country can learn
from and receive spiritually from God through the church in Africa.

We continue to remember:

On Tuesday 1st December 2015 at 7.30 pm
we had an update on the work of the

Zambesi Mis
sion from Mike Berry
Mike emphasised the work of Myles and Ruth MacBean, and others,
who are using their skill to help develop the church in Malawi and northern Mozambique . 
Please see if God would have you support this exciting work in prayer, giving or some other way.
In the second half of his presentation Mike spoke from Philippians 1v3-11 & 2v19-29
about Partnership in the Gospel. 
What is partnership?
1—It is prayerful - the Philippians were praying for Paul and he was praying for them.
2—It is personal - Paul knew all about them through Epaphroditus (their messenger).
It is practical - only the Philippians sent a messenger to Paul to help.
