"O, sing unto the Lord a new song”


Jesus shows us the true nature of God, and in Him we see God's generosity laid bare – His love and mercy, His goodness and care for all His people. And because God is generous, we humans, who are made in God's image, are called to reflect that generosity in our own lives.  It is because of this generosity that we serve the community and invite everyone to join us in worship.

I love to worship with traditional hymns, carols and liturgy as well as contemporary music including hip hop.  It is good to keep on worshipping God in heartfelt worship that is authentic to us.  In terms of style of worship music this does not mean abandoning the tradition of your church.   On the contrary you can for example build on your tradition of choral singing as well as adding new traditions of lively contemporary music. Worship services are so important because they draw us close to God. We and everyone in Seacombe need to know God - and he can only be know through Jesus Christ

"A new heart also will I give you”.  Ezekiel 36:26

There are thousands of people all over the world who have their names on a list. They are waiting for a new heart, a new physical heart. A few of them will receive that new heart but, sadly most of them will not.
That’s not the case with this new heart that God has promised to us. Everyone that truthfully and humbly asks for this new heart will receive it, free of charge, no strings attached, no waiting list. Just ask in faith and receive it!  You can receive a new Spiritual heart. A heart full of love, compassion and  kindness toward our neighbours and full of unparalleled joy. This new heart comes only through trusting Jesus Christ.


There is currently much to cause us concern on the international as well as on the national and the local scene, but behind it all lies the faithfulness and goodness of God, into whose hand we commit all our troubles and concerns, and from whom we receive so many blessings.

The Power that Perseveres

The dictionary defines hope as looking out for something good; a belief that what we wish for will come. Are you hoping for the positive outcome of your dream, a sickness, or finances? Do you see the desired end result in your mind's eye so vividly that you can almost touch it? What is your hope based on? Were you very excited yesterday when the stock market jumped or the doctor gave an optimistic prognosis? How about today, when the market had a sudden drop and the hospital reported further complications in your condition? Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1).  Now, what does that mean? You mean that no matter how hard it gets and when everything points to disaster you still have to hope against all hope? So, if you clench your teeth, purse your lips and scrunch your eyes together in faith trusting your dilemma will pass, it should go, right? Well, let's have a look how the Bible puts it... We rejoice in our sufferings, k

Public worship continues during this government national lockdown.

Church worship in my churches, St Pauls, St Lukes and St Mary's in Wallasey, continues each week.  If people are able to make it out, you are welcome. Wherever they are  are we are praying for them. A church minister's letter,  signed by 1,161 English ministers and priests,  was sent to the British government saying:  "The suspension of church services during the first lockdown was something that we were willing to do, given the unknown nature and scale of the threat we were facing. Yet the costs were high. Our greatest concern was that for four months God was not publicly worshipped in this country. And we have all seen first-hand the deep damage that this caused to many people. Since restarting in July, church has been a vital lifeline to many who have been struggling with loneliness and other negative effects of lockdown." Churches have gone to great lengths to ensure that worship need not be suspended again and put in place thorough COVID-secure measures. As a res

Return of the King on Palm Sunday

Lord of the Rings by J.R.R Tolkien tells a story in an imaginary world that somehow rings true. In Tolkien’s fantastic universe of humans, hobbits, elves, wizards, dwarves and monsters, a great evil threatens to cover the world in darkness and make every living being its slave. Chaos is the order of the day. Fear rules the hearts of most. Hope is faint. Yet amid the darkness, there are flickers of light in the love, unity and courage of  a few heroic characters. One of them is Aragon, who is destined to be king. The trilogy ends with his long-awaited return to the throne and triumphant deliverance of his people. Mark 11:1-10 is one of the Bible passages for Palm Sunday, it tells of Jesus entering Jerusalem to the cheers of the crowd, it is the return of the King: Now when they drew near to Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany, at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two of his disciples and said to them, “Go into the village in front of you, and immediately as you enter it you will find a c
