The Revd Anne Cash led the service. Chloe (Youth Worker) did a Children's Talk 'God said not to eat..' about temptation and the consequence.
Later on there was a drama sketch where a person reading a Bible was sat on a train. They were joined by another passenger who was initially critical of the person reading the Bible (with a plain brown paper cover over it).
They got talking about problems at home and passages in the Bible that could help.. Anne's sermon made the connections between the Ten Commandments and Jesus 'fleshing out' the wider implications in the Sermon on the mount.
The main thrust of the sermon was about truth and the power of words e.g. angry words have the power to destroy and that we can pay the price mentally and physically which can even lead to illness.
She talked about the need for openness and honesty and that even though for example, God intended marriage to be a lifelong covenant, the church has a responsibility to help and restore those effected by divorce.
She finished by saying that we are called to be salt and light, to bring truth that heals to a hurting world.
All in all it was great time of worship.
