This Sunday is a very special Sunday, Palm Sunday, and its appropriate that we give you something to watch and enjoy for this special day.

We’ve selected a message by Skip Heitzig from Calvary Albuquerque from John 12:12-19 “Lesson From A Donkey”.

The link for this is:

You are all still in our prayers. Don’t forget if you have any special need or prayer request to let us know.

I posted this in Facebook earlier this week but its worth sharing it here too. We all know the song “Turn Your Eyes” and sing it together…the following makes it personal:

I will turn my eyes upon Jeus

I will look in His wonderful face

And the things of earth will grow strangely dim

In the light of His glory and grace.

May the Lord continue to bless you.

For Parents & Guardians

You can watch the service link for Alastair Begg’s message “Trusting God in Dark Times but what about the children. We don’t want them to miss out and we have  a PDF with a lesson for Mother’s Day. (Link below) This is 16 pages long and will last your family all week.


 What about worship? Rosemary has put together three of the most popular songs that the children sing and you can watch these together on YouTube

Great Great Brill Brill

Peace like a River 1FVtTs 

Our God is a Great Big God

If you would find it easier, maybe you don’t have a printer, we can mail out a printed copy on Monday for this week then on Thursday each week during the current situation. Just let us know.

If there is any other way we can help to encourage the children, please let us know.

Good morning everyone

In times like these, people are looking for truth. As Christians we know the One Who is the Truth!

Can’t believe how strange it will be not to be able to gather physically on Sunday but please know that each and everyone of you will be prayed for on Sunday particularly, and of course we do this on a regular basis. (If you have any prayer needs, please contact me.)

Church offers us the opportunity to worship together and hear from God’s Word and although we won’t be in the one place on Sunday, where ever you are we encourage you to spend time with the Lord as you would normally do. To help you, we encourage you to watch online and this weekend we present a great and topical service from Alistair Begg.

Just click the press button

This is a full service recorded when Alistair’s church had to deal with a crisis in Ohio in 2019 and its very appropriate for our current crisis. The worship is great but if you only want these message, just fast forward to about 25 minutes in when the sermon “Trusting God in the Dark” will begin.

We will keep in touch on a regular basis in the coming days.

We would advise that the decision has been taken to suspend all services and activities at the church till further notice. This includes Thursday evenings and both Sunday services.

The church office will only be open on Mondays and Thursdays with the staff working at home for the remainder of the time.

We will keep you up to date as often as possible and will let you know about the livestreaming of services. For those who do not have the facilities for receiving the livestreaming, we are making the studies available on CD. These will be mailed every Monday. As you know we also have one of the most extensive resource libraries available with studies on every book and chapter of the Bible on CD, DVD and even cassette. These are available at any time to give you a constant source of studies in the Word to help with your spiritual growth.

We will also be advising shortly of a few other innovations that will help with those over 70 and those who may have to self-isolate and we are also making materials available for children, so as while they are away from church, there is still an opportunity for them to learn about the Bible on a creative way.

We are making all the resources available to anyone who requires them, not just to those who come to Calvary and we are looking at using this difficult period in an evangelistic way to tell others about the good news…especially in a time when there is so much bad news. History has shown that the church has grown during and following times of crisis (e.g. both World Wars) and there will be people asking spiritual questions e.g. “is there a God”, “Why would He let this happen” etc.

Although critical times, we have an unprecedented opportunity to shine as God’s people.

To quote a couple of lines from a hymn we often sing:

When darkness seems to hide His face
I rest on His unchanging grace
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil

We have many more plans and opportunities being quickly developed but that’s for another time.

If you have any questions or even suggestions, please let me know.

Truly His and sincerely yours
