New Year 2022

Goodbye to 2021 and hello to 2022.

Happy New Year to you all.

I hope you had a blessed and peaceful Christmas – or, at the very least, one that was not filled with pain, suffering or heartache.

Below is a short video I recorded earlier this week – and I hope to post another video soon, maybe, reflecting on 2021 in a little more depth – and looking forward to the new possibilities that 2022 opens up for us.

Watch this space – and please comment or interact with us – we would love to hear from you in 2022.

Advent Reflection 2021 #1

Here is the first of a short series of Advent Reflections by John Cooper on the Morpeth Baptist Church YouTube channel…..

I love hearing John’s reflections – and this one is a really good one – and worth listening to, reflecting on the changing role of John the Baptist when Jesus emerged to begin his ministry, and the changing roles we have in our own lives….as we decrease and Jesus increases…

Reflection #8

Here is our latest video, with me and John reflecting on our recent short series of talks about Values – and discussing how Jesus’ washing of his disciples’ feet – as recounted in John 13 – is a great example of all the four Values, namely, community (rather than fellowship), incarnated, generosity and service.
