Morning Programme


01 January

Sermon Topic: Empire in Collision

Speaker: Pastor Royston Smith

About the sermon: The suffering of everyone raises more questions than answers. Why must ‘good’ people suffer? The Bible reveals the origin of a gigantic collision of two empires and then zeros in on the final battle in this cosmic war for global control. Join us as we use scripture to identify the cause of suffering.

 Verse: Revelation 12:9
08 January

Sermon Topic: The Empire Beyond

Speaker: Pastor Andrew Cudjoe

About the sermon: Seeking immortality is an age-old quest, but no matter the attempts made by man, it remains elusive. God has a solution.  Discover the way to accept God’s free offer of eternal life, peace of mind, a guilt free conscience and a hope for tomorrow.

Key verse: 2 Peter 3:9

15 January

Sermon Topic: Ghosts – The Imperial Mystery of Life After Death

Speaker: Pastor Royston Smith

About the sermon: Is death final or do we reincarnate and come back in some other form? What lessons does the Bible teach us on this topic based on the experience Lazarus in the Bible? Journey with us to find answers.

Key verse: John 11:23-26

22 January

Sermon Topic: Showdown of the Empires

Speaker: Elder Leslene Peat-Brown

About the sermon: There is a great controversy raging between good and evil and we all have to choose a side. Elijah was a voice against false worship in the days of King Ahab. The Baal teachers of sun worship faced a drought that could not be changed. A showdown took place on Mt. Carmel where the true God was made known. Learn what it takes to be steadfast in your faith in this amazing story.

Verse: 1 Kings 18:36-37

29 January

Sermon Topic: 666: The Emperor’s Mark

Speaker: Pastor Royston Smith

About the sermon: Raging controversies are swirling about whether current COVID vaccine mandates could be the biblical “mark of the beast.” Pastor Royston Smith separates facts from fiction as he explains what the Holy Bible really says about “the beast” and “the mark.” 

Verse: Revelation 13:16-17
