Morning Service

Hymn: Spirit of faith come down.
Reading: John 14:15-17
Hymn: Hark my soul, it is the Lord.

In John 14 we have already looked at three of the seven comforts and encouragements there are for believers but what comfort could Jesus offer after telling His disciples about His betrayal and that He must leave them.

Hymn: Holy Spirit, living breath of God.

Evening Service

Hymn: Speak O Lord.
Reading: Philemon & Matthew 18:21
Hymn: Amazing Grace (My chains are gone)

Peter once asked Jesus “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me?” In Philemon we learn about true forgiveness and reconciliation.

Hymn: In Christ Alone.

Please pray for our church as we look at ways of safely opening our doors again.

(Sermons will be available on both formats Sunday morning)

Day of Prayer – 7 October

In our fellowship prayer has been, and continues to be, a cornerstone of all our work within the church and the community.  Normally our weekday service on the first of the month would be given over to prayer, giving thanks and praise to God, and focusing on issues within the fellowship and broader afield such as missions etc.  (During the pandemic these meetings have been held on Zoom)

On the 7th October, our fellowship is holding a full ‘Day of Prayer’ individually in our homes.  During September, we will be reading and prayerfully studying John chapters 13 & 14 along with a commentary by our Pastor and considering the following questions;

  1. What is God saying to me personally through the ministry in John?
  2. In what ways has God encouraged me?
  3. How has God used His Word to challenge me?

As an aid we will keep a journal where we will record our thoughts as we strive to answer these questions.  Journaling is a great aid when reading the Bible as it allows you to record anything that strikes you during your readings and may even become a springboard for even deeper study.

Morning Service

Hymn: O Church arise
Reading: Hebrews 13:1-9
Hymn: All the way my Saviour leads me
The message: Living life for our awesome God.

This past week Doncaster Evangelical Church celebrated its 40th anniversary. In our midweek service founding members shared about that exciting time all those years ago.

Throughout those 40 years the church has had its ups and downs, testing times and times of blessing. We are still in existence and have the same aim to reach out to the people of Doncaster, from all backgrounds and nationalities, with the gospel of the Lord Jesus – the message that still gives true hope.

Hymn: Restore O Lord

Evening Service

Hymn: O what a wonderful, wonderful day
Reading: Hebrews 13:1-9
Hymn: Here from the world we turn
The Message: Delighting in the Grace of our awesome God.

Again we are looking at the passage we read this morning as we marked the church’s 40th anniversary. In these last two verses we look at the relationship between the congregation and the church leaders and the reliance they have on each other.

Hymn: Great is Thy faithfulness 

Please pray for our church as we look at ways of safely opening our doors again.

Morning Service

Hymn: What a faithful God
The message: Prayers in Jesus’ name are answered.

God’s promises are meant to be drawn on to enable us to live our lives aright and not to struggle on in a poverty-stricken way. Thankfully, there are many promises to encourage us in this chapter of John

Hymn: What a friend we have in Jesus

Evening Service

Hymn: O the deep, deep love of Jesus
Reading: Genesis 43:24-34
Hymn: Jesu, lover of my soul
The Message: “Fringe Benefits” of Salvation!

Last time we saw Joseph forgiving and accepting his brothers not because they came with double the money or with a gift to bribe Joseph. They were accepted because they came on his terms by bringing Benjamin.

Hymn: Loved with everlasting love.

Please pray for our church as we look at ways of safely opening our doors again.
