And when they had crucified him, they divided his garments among them by casting lots. Then they sat down and kept watch over him there. And over his head they put the charge against him, which read, “This is Jesus, the King of the Jews.” And those who passed by derided him, wagging their heads and saying, “You who would destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save yourself! If you are the Son of God, come down from the cross.” (Matthew 27:35-37,39,40 ESV)
The Death of Jesus
Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit. And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split. When the centurion and those who were with him, keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and what took place, they were filled with awe and said, “Truly this was the Son of God!”
(Matthew 27:45-47, 50, 51, 54ESV)
We are pleased to announce that we will be starting a new venture in April called the
Spotlight English Club
Wednesday 11th April 10:30am – 12noon
This is an English Conversation Club intended for those whose first language is not English and is open to anyone in the community who want to practise their spoken English.
During our time together we will listen to a 15 minute broadcast made by Spotlight covering everyday subjects after which everyone has the opportunity to chat and discuss what they have heard.
There will also be a social aspect to the club including refreshments. Everything is completely FREE OF CHARGE.
Our first group will be on Wednesday 11th April at 10:30am in the main hall of our church. You can either register on that day or if you would like further information you can contact our Pastor Gareth, on 01302 376233.
The group will run during term time so please check the events calendar for updates.
We look forward to seeing you!
