Life Explored

Life Explored is an opportunity to explore the big questions of life in a friendly, relaxed environment, and to learn how Christianity responds to those questions. It is a FREE seven session series featuring a meal followed by a combination of short films shot around the world and interactive discussions.

It’s an exposé of the little gods that promise us so much happiness, yet deliver so little. As it explores the Bible story (creation, fall, redemption, new creation), Life Explored shows how our deepest desires for happiness can only be satisfied in one person, Jesus Christ. The best gift God can give us is himself.

Everyone is welcome. You don’t need to know anything about Christianity or the Bible.

You won’t be asked to read aloud, pray or sing and you can ask any question you want, or just listen. Our aim is to help people investigate Christianity in a relaxed and accessible way and we encourage guests to come with all of their questions. All opinions will be respected and welcome.

Session 1 – Wednesday 8th Feb, 7pm-9pm The Good God

Session 2 – Wednesday 15th Feb, 7pm-9pm The Trustworthy God

Session 3 – Wednesday 22th Feb, 7pm-9pm The Generous God

Session 4 – Wednesday 1st Mar, 7pm-9pm The Liberating God

Session 6 – Wednesday 15th Mar, 7pm-9pm The Life-Giving God

Session 7 – Wednesday 22th Mar, 7pm-9pm The Joyful God

It’s lovely to share in the notices as a church family and feel encouraged by all that’s going on and all that God is doing. Sometimes there is a lot to get through though, so we’ve decided to try something new. From February we will start the notices for Sunday@11 at 10.55, and continue worship with a prayer at 11 o’clock.
We would encourage everyone to submit written notices to Amy before 8pm on the Thursday, and if there are any late notices or anything you feel needs emphasising please speak to the worship leader or steward before 10.55 on the Sunday. Any additional notices for the 9.30 service need to go to the steward in advance.
One more thing – the coffee hatch will close at 10.55, so make sure you’re in good time to not miss out on tea, coffee and cake!

Christmas at Burniston Methodist Church

Dear friends and neighbours, ‘It’s a boy!’ In the words of the carol; ‘The virgin Mary had a baby boy.’ What gift do you give a new born baby?
In the bible, the story of the birth of Jesus unfolds and he is visited by the Wise Men who bring him gifts of Gold, frankincense and myrrh. Someone once said that if Jesus had been visited by Wise Women instead of Wise Men, they would have asked for directions, arrived on time, helped to deliver the baby, cleaned the stable, made a casserole and brought practical gifts. Gold, frankincense and myrrh are not the kind of gifts that we would give a baby in this day and age, but there could well be significance and meaning in the gifts given to Jesus by the Wise men.
Gold is a precious metal and often associated with royalty. The bible says that Jesus is the King of kings. Gold points to Jesus as King.
Frankincense is a white resin or gum and is highly fragrant when burned and was often used in worship. The gift of frankincense points to Jesus who would become an offering to God.
Myrrh symbolizes bitterness and suffering. The gift of myrrh points to Jesus who would suffer greatly in adulthood.
Jesus is God’s gift of himself to the world, to you and to me.
‘God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.’ What does this mean for the world, for you and for me today?
At Burniston Methodist Church we believe that Jesus has great meaning and makes a very real difference and our Christmas services are celebrations of God’s wonderful gift. Come and join us, come and join the celebrations. God bless you and your family and friends this Christmas. Rev Graham Morgan
