Who is your king? We each hold a throne room in our hearts. Our king is the one who receives our time, our allegiance. This morning, Malcolm challenges us to reflect on this and how we have or are responding to what Jesus asks of us - to accept him as our king and allow him into our hearts.โดย The Bethel - Old Trafford Christadelphian Church
 
This morning James spends time considering one of the female disciples - Martha. Whilst Mary, Martha’s sister, sat at the feet of her Rabbi, Martha is a disciple who focused her energy on service.

We aren’t as familiar with what the word ‘Lord’ means compared to ancient times, where a hierarchy in society was much stronger.

Chris takes us through those days around the transfiguration - showing us how disconnected the disciples were around that time, and how Jesus might have felt, knowing about what was to come. In that moment on the mount of Olives, Jesus sees the ‘then’ and ‘now’ - and we are reminded today of the ‘then’ and ‘now’ of the kingdom that we hope for.…
 
Sometimes in life, especially during the pandemic, we really feel distanced. Whether we feel exiled or we've exiled ourselves, it can be hard to find a new perspective. Rachel gives us a compellingly honest perspective when hopes are challenged. But as we see in Jeremiah, God has a message for us. Whatever you're carrying today, bring it to the cro…
 
What's your life like - are you blessed? We hear and see the word used a lot - and we take it to mean one thing: we have been given plenty - whether materially, with job security, with our health or with friends and family. This morning, Luke challenges us to see it differently. He shows us that the beatitudes have a lot to say about this, so how d…
 
The Western World functions in a humanist groove that centres on human rights, but the origins of the human rights we’re familiar with may surprise you.

Genesis’ creation account has a moment where God rested. What does it mean?Martyn explores the answer to this question and helps us understand what it can mean to us and our …
 
How do we pray? It’s easy to think of the things we want to ask for in prayer to our Father, but do we take time to say thank you, to listen for God’s response. Andrew introduces us to the concept of Active Listening, something Jesus often talked about - do we choose to listen, choose to take in what we’re hearing, to allow the words we’re hearing …
 
At the start of this mornings service, Tony presents an “ordinary” empty box - but the box hides a secret red handkerchief that quickly turns into many handkerchiefs. Tony shows us that the way we see things is not the same way that God sees things. We perhaps don’t even judge ourselves the way God judges us - all we are called to do is be strong, …
 
Despite all the benefits, this lockdown has brought on a kind of cabin fever. How do we cope in this time - how can ensure more goes right than goes wrong. Mark takes us to the crucifixion to consider the lessons there for us.โดย The Bethel - Old Trafford Christadelphian Church
 
Seven weeks on from the crucifixion, we see the disciples preaching in tongues to a crowd. A crowd that may have included some of the people who wanted Jesus killed.

This isn’t the April we wanted… But, as Malcolm says, it’s the April we’ve been given. How do we make the most of the rest of it?

Does it matter if we do? What really matters to us in our in our interactions at church?โดย The Bethel - Old Trafford Christadelphian Church
 
Singing out loud is scientifically proven to relieve pain and to reduce stress.

Malachi's mandate was to call people back to God. They had become lax and mediocre in the way they were treating God & their relationship with him. God's starting point was from a very close, personal relationship of love for Israel. How would our lives change if we constantly had the physical presence of Jesus next to us? Maybe we just need to ask…

God doesn't need our love but we need to love God and this is apparent as that love spi…
 
The opening of Ephesians reminds us our lives must be centred on Christ. Paul’s making it clear that Jesus isn’t a twist in the story or the latest gimmick. Jesus is the Centre of what God is and will always be about. In the same letter, we are told that we are the completeness of Christ: as essential parts of the body we make up the full complemen…
 
We are far more blessed than the material possessions that we accumulate through life. Colin discovered, after recently acquiring an electric bike, that he had a mouse problem in an outbuilding.
