21 Days in John

This Sunday we're going to start a three week series looking at John's account of the life of Jesus. Starting on Sunday we're going to encourage everyone to read a chapter of John's gospel every day, which given there are 21 chapters in John gives us the series title!

  • On Sunday we're looking at Jesus being sent to the earth as the Word becoming flesh. Michael Ross-Watson is speaking in Bracknell at the 9am and 11am, Heather Pocock is speaking in Sandhurst at 10am, and Ben Pocock will be leading the 6pm in a group Bible study which is going to be different but I think will work very well.
  • On Sunday 4th May Liam Parker will be speaking at all 4 meetings on Jesus the Light of the World - looking at Jesus ministry on Earth.
  • Then on Sunday 11th May I'll be speaking on Jesus being the vine, and the need for us to be filled with the Spirit as we await His return.

To support the series we've asked Michael Ross-Watson to produce a set of Bible reading notes for each chapter - I'm really grateful to Michael for taking the time to produce these.

We're going to publish Michael's notes every day on my blog with links to them from the church Facebook and Twitter accounts. If you haven't signed up to get my blog via email why not do that now (you can register for that on my blog on the right hand side of the page) - that way you'll get Michael's notes emailed to you every morning throughout the series.

If you know anyone not on the internet who you think would appreciate the notes please let them know that we will have a few paper copies behind reception in Bracknell and Sandhurst, but for the rest of us let's do what we can to save the trees :)

It's always life changing whenever we reflect on the life of Jesus. Let's do all we can to immerse ourselves in these 21 days.

Simon.
