Sunday Online

10am

As we are unable to meet on Sunday at any of our venues in Horsham, Burgess Hill, Crawley or Worthing we’re gathering instead as households right across the region to pray, to worship and to watch a message together online. You’ll also find some children’s and youth resources below for you to use as a family as well as links to give online among other things on our website.

We pray that God will meet with you wherever you are and that you will experience His goodness, His faithfulness and His love today.

Daily Bible reading strengthens our relationship with God, nourishes our spirits and equips us to live a fruitful, effective life for Him.

If you’ve never read the whole way through the Bible before why not follow our plan this year? As we read the Word it’s important that we apply what we read and pray it out over our lives.

  • ROM 3 Romans 3
  • 1SAM 11-12 1 Samuel 11-12
  • PSA 57 Psalm 57
  • God is Righteous and Just1When you consider this, what advantages do you have as a Jew because of your circumcision?2A great many. For a start, God entrusted His words to you; He spoke to you as a nation through the prophets and then by His own Son.3Although not all believe God's words, this did not affect His faithfulness towards those He had chosen. It is unthinkable that He would ever be unfaithful; He is true and trustworthy in every way, even though no man can make such a claim about himself.4If every man was a liar, God would still remain true! It has been written that 'God is proved right when He speaks and His judgments are always sound.'5You see, no matter how unrighteous we may be, this only serves to show the wonder of God's righteousness by comparison. So we can never accuse God of being unjust in His judgments, can we? If we are objects of His anger, that is no more than we deserve, looking at it from a purely human perspective.6We could never accuse Him of wrongdoing! For He would be in no position to judge the world if He were like us.7There are always some who want to twist the truth. I have heard it suggested that if our sin reveals God's truthfulness and glory by comparison, then we should not be condemned as sinners!8What a crazy argument! You may as well say straight out that we are free to do whatever evil we desire, so that good will come out of our sin. It might be difficult to believe, but some slander us by suggesting that this is what we teach. Such slanderers are certainly under condemnation themselves.Salvation attained by faith9What is the conclusion of my argument? Am I suggesting that we Jews are better than others? No, that is to miss the point altogether. I have already stated clearly that all are under the power of sin, whether Jew or non-Jew.10It is written: "There is not even one person who is righteous, not one.11No-one understands God, nobody who truly seeks Him.12For all have turned away from Him and have chosen to walk in their own corrupt ways, and so have become worthless in His sight. Nobody is good in all he or she does. Nobody!13"People speak so many things at odds with God's truth that their throats are open graves; it is common practice to speak deceitfully. Their words are often filled with venomous poison.14They curse God and are bitter in their attitudes towards Him.15Mankind is renowned for violence, destroying lives that God counts precious.16-17No wonder the course of their lives contains so much misery that they have no hope and no peace.18In short, they have no fear of God; they have no desire to honour Him although He is their Lord."19This seems a desperate situation. And it is, for those who live under religious law; for when you look at the demands that God makes of His people, everyone is silenced. Nobody in the world can claim to have obeyed His laws perfectly.20For this reason, there is not one person that could be judged as right in God's eyes because of his or her perfect obedience to His will. All the religious law does is to point out our inability to please God in our own strength, proving that we are all sinners.21But God has His answer for this seemingly hopeless situation. He has made it possible for us to be right and acceptable in His eyes, but this has nothing to do with religious law. The writings of the prophets and even the law itself pointed to the way that God would solve this dilemma.22He provided the gift of righteousness! Yes, we can be made right in His eyes, free from the guilt of sin and all condemnation, but only through faith in Jesus Christ. This righteousness, this total acceptance by God, is His gift to all who believe in Jesus as their Saviour and Lord.23Listen, I have made it clear that every living person, Jew or non-Jew, has sinned and has therefore fallen short of the glory God intended for mankind.24The good news is this: that anyone, Jew or non-Jew, can now be made completely acceptable to God. This acceptance is a free gift from God, the work of His grace, because Jesus gave His life for us on the cross, making it possible for all our sin and failure to be forgiven.25God even made His own Son the perfect sacrifice that would restore us to unity with God. Only faith in the power of His blood is needed to cleanse us and make us right with God. Why should it be necessary for God to make His own Son a sacrifice? Because He had to demonstrate that He is just. He could not say that our sin did not matter, even though until the cross He had not shown the full judgment our sins deserved.26Sin had to be judged because it separates us from God. So His just and righteous judgment on sin had to be executed. But instead of punishing us sinners, His Son bore the punishment we deserve. As you believe that Jesus did this for you personally, so you are made totally righteous and acceptable in God's sight!27What have you to boast about? You did absolutely nothing to make your salvation possible. You cannot claim that you are right with God because of your perfect obedience to His commands. Your salvation is possible only by your personal faith in Jesus and what He has done for you.28We teach clearly that there is no other way for a person to be saved from his or her sins and the eternal condemnation he or she deserves. Faith in Jesus is the only way of salvation, and this has nothing to do with God's law.29It is clear, then, that He is God not only of the Jews but of anyone of any nation who puts his faith in Jesus.30There is only one God and He alone can make people acceptable in His sight, regardless of their nationality, whether they have been ritually circumcised or not. It is a matter of faith in Jesus, and faith alone!31Does this mean that the religious law is of no account? No, for those who are made acceptable to God are then able to fulfil His will!

  • 1 Samuel 111Nahash the Ammonite went up and besieged Jabesh Gilead. And all the men of Jabesh said to him, “Make a treaty with us, and we will be subject to you.” 2But Nahash the Ammonite replied, “I will make a treaty with you only on the condition that I gouge out the right eye of every one of you and so bring disgrace on all Israel.” 3The elders of Jabesh said to him, “Give us seven days so we can send messengers throughout Israel; if no one comes to rescue us, we will surrender to you.” 4When the messengers came to Gibeah of Saul and reported these terms to the people, they all wept aloud. 5Just then Saul was returning from the fields, behind his oxen, and he asked, “What is wrong with everyone? Why are they weeping?” Then they repeated to him what the men of Jabesh had said. 6When Saul heard their words, the Spirit of God came powerfully upon him, and he burned with anger. 7He took a pair of oxen, cut them into pieces, and sent the pieces by messengers throughout Israel, proclaiming, “This is what will be done to the oxen of anyone who does not follow Saul and Samuel.” Then the terror of the Lord fell on the people, and they came out together as one. 8When Saul mustered them at Bezek, the men of Israel numbered three hundred thousand and those of Judah thirty thousand. 9They told the messengers who had come, “Say to the men of Jabesh Gilead, ‘By the time the sun is hot tomorrow, you will be rescued.’” When the messengers went and reported this to the men of Jabesh, they were elated. 10They said to the Ammonites, “Tomorrow we will surrender to you, and you can do to us whatever you like.” 11The next day Saul separated his men into three divisions; during the last watch of the night they broke into the camp of the Ammonites and slaughtered them until the heat of the day. Those who survived were scattered, so that no two of them were left together.12The people then said to Samuel, “Who was it that asked, ‘Shall Saul reign over us?’ Turn these men over to us so that we may put them to death.” 13But Saul said, “No one will be put to death today, for this day the Lord has rescued Israel.” 14Then Samuel said to the people, “Come, let us go to Gilgal and there renew the kingship.” 15So all the people went to Gilgal and made Saul king in the presence of the Lord. There they sacrificed fellowship offerings before the Lord, and Saul and all the Israelites held a great celebration. 1 Samuel 121Samuel said to all Israel, “I have listened to everything you said to me and have set a king over you. 2Now you have a king as your leader. As for me, I am old and gray, and my sons are here with you. I have been your leader from my youth until this day. 3Here I stand. Testify against me in the presence of the Lord and his anointed. Whose ox have I taken? Whose donkey have I taken? Whom have I cheated? Whom have I oppressed? From whose hand have I accepted a bribe to make me shut my eyes? If I have done any of these things, I will make it right.” 4“You have not cheated or oppressed us,” they replied. “You have not taken anything from anyone’s hand.” 5Samuel said to them, “The Lord is witness against you, and also his anointed is witness this day, that you have not found anything in my hand.”“He is witness,” they said. 6Then Samuel said to the people, “It is the Lord who appointed Moses and Aaron and brought your ancestors up out of Egypt. 7Now then, stand here, because I am going to confront you with evidence before the Lord as to all the righteous acts performed by the Lord for you and your ancestors. 8“After Jacob entered Egypt, they cried to the Lord for help, and the Lord sent Moses and Aaron, who brought your ancestors out of Egypt and settled them in this place. 9“But they forgot the Lord their God; so he sold them into the hand of Sisera, the commander of the army of Hazor, and into the hands of the Philistines and the king of Moab, who fought against them. 10They cried out to the Lord and said, ‘We have sinned; we have forsaken the Lord and served the Baals and the Ashtoreths. But now deliver us from the hands of our enemies, and we will serve you.’ 11Then the Lord sent Jerub-Baal, Barak, Jephthah and Samuel, and he delivered you from the hands of your enemies all around you, so that you lived in safety. 12“But when you saw that Nahash king of the Ammonites was moving against you, you said to me, ‘No, we want a king to rule over us’—even though the Lord your God was your king. 13Now here is the king you have chosen, the one you asked for; see, the Lord has set a king over you. 14If you fear the Lord and serve and obey him and do not rebel against his commands, and if both you and the king who reigns over you follow the Lord your God—good! 15But if you do not obey the Lord, and if you rebel against his commands, his hand will be against you, as it was against your ancestors. 16“Now then, stand still and see this great thing the Lord is about to do before your eyes! 17Is it not wheat harvest now? I will call on the Lord to send thunder and rain. And you will realize what an evil thing you did in the eyes of the Lord when you asked for a king.” 18Then Samuel called on the Lord, and that same day the Lord sent thunder and rain. So all the people stood in awe of the Lord and of Samuel. 19The people all said to Samuel, “Pray to the Lord your God for your servants so that we will not die, for we have added to all our other sins the evil of asking for a king.” 20“Do not be afraid,” Samuel replied. “You have done all this evil; yet do not turn away from the Lord, but serve the Lord with all your heart. 21Do not turn away after useless idols. They can do you no good, nor can they rescue you, because they are useless. 22For the sake of his great name the Lord will not reject his people, because the Lord was pleased to make you his own. 23As for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord by failing to pray for you. And I will teach you the way that is good and right. 24But be sure to fear the Lord and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you. 25Yet if you persist in doing evil, both you and your king will perish.”

  • For the director of music. To the tune of "Do Not Destroy." Of David. A miktam. When he had fled from Saul into the cave.1Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me, for in you I take refuge.I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed. 2I cry out to God Most High, to God, who vindicates me.3He sends from heaven and saves me, rebuking those who hotly pursue me— God sends forth his love and his faithfulness. 4I am in the midst of lions; I am forced to dwell among ravenous beasts—men whose teeth are spears and arrows, whose tongues are sharp swords. 5Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth. 6They spread a net for my feet— I was bowed down in distress.They dug a pit in my path— but they have fallen into it themselves. 7My heart, O God, is steadfast, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and make music.8Awake, my soul! Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn. 9I will praise you, Lord, among the nations; I will sing of you among the peoples.10For great is your love, reaching to the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies. 11Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth.

  • S.O.A.P.

    In order to go further in the mission God has given us, He said we need to go deeper in our relationship with Him. As with any tree or plant, the fruit is determined by the health and depth of the root. One way we have been going deeper is by reading and journaling through the Word every day. We’ve called it S.O.A.P.

    [S]cripture - Read the Word
    [O]bservation - Write down what God is saying/showing you
    [A]pplication - How do we apply this in our lives?
    [P]rayer - Pray through and over your life

    As we read the Word (Scripture), listen to the Holy Spirit (Observation), discover how to apply that to our lives (Application) and pray these things over our lives and those in the Church (Prayer) we’re going deeper in our relationship with God so that we can go further in the mission He’s given us.

    Throughout the rest of the year we’ll be continuing our Bible Reading Plan to press deeper into God so that we can go further in His purposes. Get yourself a Bible, a journal and a pen and SOAP your way through the scriptures!

    You can see which chapters we’re reading today above this section.
