April Programme


01 April

15 April
Men’s Ministry Day

Sermon Topic: Doubt Defeated 

Speakers: Pastor Royston Smith 

Summary: God wants us to believe in Him even without tangible proof. That’s evidence of our faith in Him. Jesus’ very own disciple, Thomas, gives us several important things to learn about doubt. If you struggle with doubt, this message is for you.

22 April
Youth Focus Day

Sermonette Topic: Empty

Speakers: Elder Myrin Hall

Summary: Sometimes the word “empty” is associated with something negative, but if we look at human beings as vessels or containers that (when empty) can be filled and used by Jesus, then being empty can signify the start of something wonderful.

29 April

Sermonette Topic: Let’s Go Fishing 

Speakers: Elder David Billett

Summary: Confused after the resurrection, the disciples of Jesus decided to go back to their original professions. But when Jesus reappeared to them on the sea of Galilee and a mighty miracle was performed, not only was their faith strengthened, he commanded them to go and be fishers of men. How are you playing your part in growing God’s kingdom?
