Who's Sitting On Our Windowsills? The Story of Eutychus

Our theme series, Acts Now! Stories of Making Church Outside a Building, continues with this story about youth and is relevant to anyone who may be 'sitting on the margins'. How will we welcome all into our life of worship and prayer and be a place of radical belonging?

Making the Unknown God...Known...In New Ways

We live in a world that no longer 'speaks Christian'. How do we speak of our faith in ways that welcome stranger and neighbour in love and respect, while sharing the 'good news' of the Gospel of Jesus? This week we read the story of Paul's visit to Athens as he finds 'common ground' with people there.

  • You can find the story in Acts 17:16-34

Turning the World (and the Church) Upside Down! 

The early followers of Jesus were accused of 'turning the world upside down' with their message of good news. In our day, too, the gospel values of peace, justice and God's radical love for all people can clash with our consumer culture's values.

How will we 'turn the world upside down' with the Love of God?

Acts Now! Stories of Making Church Outside a Building

This week we journey 'down by the river' and hear the story of an early church leader, Lydia. Her story teaches us about the gift of hospitality. How do we cross cultural, gender, religious and economic boundaries to welcome the wisdom and insight of others into our experience of faith? This was a question for the early church; this is an important question for us today in the 21st century.

This week's reading: Acts 16:6-15

A Council Table: Conflict and Creativity - A Third Way with the Spirit!

Our stories in Acts have taken us from the festival of Pentecost, through busy city streets and temple porches, to country roadsides and river edges, to rooftop decks and table gatherings. This week, we will hear a story of 'making church outside a building' at a Church meeting! Yes, even here the Spirit can find a way to create a new understanding of community.
 
(This week's reading: Acts 15)

'Draw the Circle Wider'
This week, our story of 'making church outside a building' takes us to a rooftop. Peter's strange vision opens his eyes and heart to new possibilities, and an encounter with 'the other' transforms his thinking. Who is 'the other' in our lives and in our community inviting us to 'draw the circle wider', and wider still,
for the sake of Love?

This week's scripture story - Acts 10

Acts Now! Stories of Making Church Outside a Building

Join us for 'Act 2' of our special worship series based on the Book of Acts.

This second part explores the stories of transformation as people encounter the Spirit of Jesus at work in their lives. This is our story! We live in a time of great transformation as a society, as Visions United, and as individuals- each with our own faith story.

This week we hear a story about Saul, who we know better as Paul. This unlikely character becomes a key actor in the rest of Acts.

This week's story is Acts 9:1-35. A new outline of the Bible readings will be available soon so you can read through the Book of Acts with us.
