Power To The People
This series is the second in a two-part sequence on mission, which began with four weeks on Jonah. As we move into the New Testament, we are looking to learn the lessons which were hard-won by the early church – how they faced opposition, spoke truth to power, expanded their idea of who could be saved and worked tirelessly to take the gospel to the ends of the Earth.

Almighty, risen, immortal Christ – all authority in heaven and on Earth belongs to you. Give us courage to go and make disciples of all nations. Assure us in our anointing as we baptise them with fire and water in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Grant us words and wisdom as we teach them to obey all that you have commanded. And may we know your closeness with us, from now until the end of the age. Amen.
