Touring our Future!

Touring our future?

We want to serve and share! Our commitment to this pathway was renewed in 2010: to serve Hucknall and share something of the many blessings we’ve discovered through faith in Jesus Christ. Last year (2014) we decided to explore two things that may be involved in doing this: resourcing ministry amongst the growing […]

Movie Night!

On Thursday night we had a movie night for the Explore young people and their families.

It was great to be able to welcome new members of families who we had not met before and to also allow parents to have a movie night as well. We ate popcorn and really enjoyed How to train your […]

Action Team Week

Last week we had a visit from The BMS Action Team in Mozambique. We welcomed Stephen, Ben and Rachel to Hucknall for a busy week of activities including Mozambique comes to Monday Club, as series of lessons at The National Academy and Linby-cum-Papplewick Primary schools, a talk given to the Rotary Club, as well as […]

‘A Ramble’, they said…

There is always something great to look forward to at the end of term at Monday Club. Last night it was a ramble & chips. As a helper at Monday Club I offered to go along as an extra pair of eyes.  After all it was bound to be a meander followed by some gorgeous […]

It’s a Loving Walk

Romans 14:15                                 IT’S A LOVING WALK

We’re looking at what it means to be on a Christian walk. Paul’s last use of this image of the Christian walk in his letter to the Roman believers, is in a befuddling passage in chapter 14. He writes: ‘If your brother is distressed because of what you eat, […]

Spirit Walk

IT’S A SPIRIT WALK                                  Reflections on Romans 8:4

We’re on a Christian walk! Last week we discovered the landscape opened by resurrection of Jesus. Our primary Christian message is not, ‘You’ve got to change’, but rather ‘The world has changed!’ Jesus’ death and resurrection make a profound difference to the way we live. We in a […]

It’s a new walk

WALK THE WALK
1. IT’S A NEW WALK                   Reflections on Romans 6:1-11

 
Early Christians called what we call ‘Christianity’ simply ‘the Way.’ It was a different kind of human living. We make that Way by walking it. What do I mean? Many have fine dreams, great aspirations and exciting visions, but it’s only those that learn to […]

Phew it is finished…

It really is a piece of work which starts in January time and ends in a rush by the Annual General Meeting!  I am of course talking about the Annual Report or ‘Partnership’ – ‘Our life together’ as it is called this year.
Requesting photos and then sending proformas with this years’ questions and waiting for them […]

Easter Bake-off success!

Flour, icing sugar and corn flakes flying around the kitchen as many people entered WRBC’s Easter Bake-off for BMS NightLight.
At 10am on Saturday 12th April keen bakers and unsure bakers entered the Easter Bake-off at Watnall Road Baptist Church. With 2 very willing judges Lindsey and Caitlin who had the arduous task of tasting them all […]

All things Lego

At Explore we had Dave Gregory come and talk to the young people. He used his vast knowledge of all things Lego and Lego itself to engage with the young people creatively.
Throughout the evening Dave challenged the young people to ‘construct God’ and Easter through Lego (their perception of both). Towards the end they were challenged […]
