Deeper 

A new approach to Worship, 10:30 a.m. on 3rd Sundays at Holy Trinity Ashby.
Deeper

Starting on Sunday 17 March 2019, we will be taking a new approach to our worship together. We will have a simplified service structure, time to respond to the promptings of the Holy Spirit and a longer time of teaching and study.

Would you prepare for this new Deeper experience of our Sunday worship?

  • By reading and studying the passage we will be looking at you can come prepared to learn.
  • By listening to and learning the songs we will be using you can enter, more freely, into our sung worship. 
  • By considering the question for the month, you can bring your own experience and gathered wisdom to bear on the challenges we face.

Deeper Resources

Published on the first Sunday of the month, you will be able to find - on this page - the Bible Reading, Songs and Question for the 3rd Sunday of the month ahead.

Reading

John 1:29-42

John Testifies About Jesus

29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! 30 This is the one I meant when I said, ‘A man who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’ 31 I myself did not know him, but the reason I came baptizing with water was that he might be revealed to Israel.”

32 Then John gave this testimony: “I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him. 33 And I myself did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and remain is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’ 34 I have seen and I testify that this is God’s Chosen One.”[a]

John’s Disciples Follow Jesus

35 The next day John was there again with two of his disciples. 36 When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, “Look, the Lamb of God!”

37 When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus. 38 Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, “What do you want?”

They said, “Rabbi” (which means “Teacher”), “where are you staying?”

39 “Come,” he replied, “and you will see.”

So they went and saw where he was staying, and they spent that day with him. It was about four in the afternoon.

40 Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, was one of the two who heard what John had said and who had followed Jesus. 41 The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, “We have found the Messiah” (that is, the Christ). 42 And he brought him to Jesus.

Jesus looked at him and said, “You are Simon son of John. You will be called Cephas” (which, when translated, is Peter[b]).

Footnotes:

John 1:34 See Isaiah 42:1; many manuscripts is the Son of God. John 1:42 Cephas (Aramaic) and Peter (Greek) both mean rock.

Listening
