Sermon Series at Emmanuel and St Mary's Churches

9am (Emmanuel) and 10.30am (St Mary's) services.

August is a time when not a lot happens, most of the groups and activities we run stop and it gives us a chance to take a break.

In Genesis 2 we read that after God had made the heavens and the earth, he rested.

We are made in his image and we see that God works, so we work.  But God also rested, so we too must rest!  Work and rest live in relationship and if we don’t learn how to rest well, we will never learn how to work well.  Embrace this time as a gift, enjoy the change of pace, and I pray that you will not only rest but you will also feel God’s refreshment.
