LIVING IN FAITH TEACHING SERIES : God's people have always been called to live in faith; Abraham travelled in faith, Moses led the people through the wilderness in faith, the prophets called people to faith in God in challenging times.
Christians are called to live out our lives in the faith that Jesus died and rose again. What does this mean in practice? This series offers some suggestions.

Thanks : To Rose and Isaac who have both volunteered as Receptionists at the Westfield Prayer Space. They'll now have a chat with Rev Christy Asinugo, Lead Chaplain, about what's involved and decide if they want to take things forward.

SPECIAL PRAYER : Lord, you have taught us that all we do without love is worthless: send your Holy Spirit and put into our hearts the gift of love, the true bond of peace and of all virtues, without which whoever lives is counted dead before you. Grant this for your only Son Jesus Christ's sake, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. AMEN
