This year saw our second women’s conference ably lead by Catherine who delivered three sessions on the subject – Beauty through Brokenness. It was a real privilege to host so many who joined together for what proved to be an important meeting.
The recordings are available now to listen to on-line or download and be accessed here:
Session1: Emotions: mirrors of the heart.
Session 3: His beauty through our brokenness.
Thessalonica was a fast growing and influential city. The Romans administered the region of Macedonia from there, it had good communications and was of strategic importance. What makes it so important to us is that a Church was begun there during a one week stay by Paul as recorded in Acts 17, and a couple of months later, he wrote two letters to the group from Corinth. These letters give us a unique snapshot of life in a young Church, full of new believers, working it out in a time of frenzied persecution.
The letter is full of vital counsel to those who find themselves feeling inadequately equipped to face what appear to be insurmountable problems, who conclude that only the second coming of Jesus can help them win the prize.
Please visit our sermons page to hear the messages from the first letter to the Thessalonians which we have been considering here.

On Sunday 8th September, George Platt preached here at NBBC. George first came to us as an intern at the end of his first year at the London Theological Seminary is now pastoring in Hertford, married to Rachel and soon to be a Dad.
He preached here in the morning and in the afternoon gave us a taster from his new album of devotional songs released earlier this year and talked us through those parts of the Bible which stirred his heart to write.
Here’s a sample: Ever Be
Normally we have two services in the morning but we just had the 10:30 service and then instead of meeting at 6pm, we had a bring and share tea and cake at 3:30 followed by a time hearing from George at 4:30.
A good number came along.
(Sadly I was not there as I was in Israel, preaching at Grace and Truth Baptist Church in Rehavot in Israel! – which also went well by God’s grace.)
