Since the various measures have been imposed in the light of the Coronovirus/COVID-19 pandemic, many of our services have moved online. Although we will endeavour to keep recordings up to date, the main church meetings will be delivered via YouTube, and a combination of video-conferencing technologies.

NB. Just to note, once service steams have finished, they require processing by YouTube before they can move from ‘Past Live Streams’ into the main Videos area. What is shown may be determined by a filter, which is sometimes pre-selected to only show Videos, so you may not see the recent live streams. If you change this filter to show all, you should see the listings.

Luke 15:1–14 (Listen)

15:1 Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him. And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, “This man receives sinners and eats with them.”

So he told them this parable: “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.’ Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.

“Or what woman, having ten silver coins, if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp and sweep the house and seek diligently until she finds it? And when she has found it, she calls together her friends and neighbors, saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found the coin that I had lost.’ 10 Just so, I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”

11 And he said, “There was a man who had two sons. 12 And the younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the share of property that is coming to me.’ And he divided his property between them. 13 Not many days later, the younger son gathered all he had and took a journey into a far country, and there he squandered his property in reckless living. 14 And when he had spent everything, a severe famine arose in that country, and he began to be in need.
