Jesus entrusted everyone who believes to ‘Go’ and spread the good news to others. This means it’s a task assigned to all Christians, so why does it seem so hard to be a witness in modern society? Jesus through his ministry gave us the blueprint of what true discipleship should entail and the ways in which we can achieve it. Follow us through the month of March to find out how you can fulfil your true potential as a disciple of Christ.


Morning Programme



Sermon Topic: True Discipleship

Speaker: Pastor Royston Smith

About the sermon: How can Jesus’ example of spreading the gospel help us in modern Britain today? Jesus demanded that the 12 disciples acted on what he was telling them. He gave them a way to live, he gave them goals to achieve.  He led by example.  He trained, equipped, and empowered them. He proved that it only took 3 years to fully train ordinary men who could then go out (with the Holy Spirit) to mentor/teach other people. He commanded them to make disciples.


Sermon Topic: How to Become a Disciple

Guest Speaker: Pastor Michael Mbui (SEC Personal Ministries Director)

About the sermon: What does it mean to be a true disciple in a secular society? The world is heading for moral decay and ultimate ruin.  Many have started to believe that Satan is an irresistible force, and a feeling of hopelessness has begun to set in. As a result, the church has become timid to leave the comfort of its four walls to evangelise. We need to step out in faith and put our faith to the test by influencing; confronting; and changing the views of modern-day society. Then we will discover (like the 72 did) that even demons will obey us (Luke 10:17-20).


Sermonette Topic: Glory in the Cross

Speaker: Elder Leslene Peat-Brown

About the sermon: The world is full of enticements. We are confronted on a daily basis with many “voices”, subtle cultural pressures and overt propaganda. The only way to escape these destructive influences is to ask God to help us crucify our interest in them, as we glory in the cross just as Paul did. We have Christ’s resurrection power as we continue to fight sin in our lives. influences is to ask God to help


Sermon Topic: Our Work as Disciples

Guest Speaker: Pastor Sam Ouadjo (SEC Ministerial Association Secretary)

About the sermon: As a disciple of Christ, we should display certain qualities. We should be able to share the ‘Good News’ to others – teach and educate (by having a good knowledge and understanding of the Bible). We need to love and trust God; love one another and be a shining light to others (Matthew 5:16). We should be able to deny ourselves, live for Christ, fellowship with others and be an imitator of Christ in deeds and actions. When we develop these characteristics, we will be able to display the true nature of Christ and have the heart and desire to make disciples of Christ.
