Our annual Good Friday service this year will be at Usk Baptist Church at 7pm. We’ll join with other churches for communion and remember Christ’s death. Our guest preacher will be our own former minister, Bert Weenink.
You’ll find Usk Baptist Church on Old Market Street, Usk NP15 1UA. If you need a lift, please do not hesitate to ask. Here’s a map:

This Sunday morning, we’re kicking off a new three part series in the build up to Easter, The Cross in Full Colour. For each week, we’ll consider how the cross takes effect upon a different person in order to help us better understand the work of the cross.
Here are the plans:
||The Cross and the Father
||The Cross and the Devil
||2 Corinthians 5:14-15
||The Cross and the Christian
The saying goes that no person is an island. And if that’s true generally then it’s certainly true of the life of a Christian. You can’t live a Christian life in isolation from others.
As much as it’s helpful to be part of the crowd that is the church gathering on a weekly basis, the Christian life needs to be lived up close and personal with other Christians. That’s why we’re introducing Life Groups, to be a more intimate level of fellowship. For these groups, there will be a short Bible study, followed by lots of prayer that especially focuses on praying for each other, as well as simply being with each other.
Every member has been given a suggested group for them to attend. And we’ll also hold a group in the church hall, for those who find it easier to get to than someone’s home. If you need more details then get in contact.

Our final mini series in 1 Corinthians (with just the conclusion left to do) takes us to chapter 15, with Messy Theology. It’s all about Jesus’ resurrection and ours. It’s vital we have a correct understanding on what Jesus’ resurrection truly is and its implications then for what will happen to us when Jesus returns.
Here are the plans for our Sunday mornings:
||1 Cor. 15:1-11
||The Truth of Christ’s Resurrection
||1 Cor. 15:12-19
||Christ’s Resurrection and Ours
||1 Cor. 15:20-34
||The Certainty of Our Resurrection
||1 Cor. 15:35-57
||The Nature of Our Resurrection
||1 Cor. 15:58
||Living Now because of the Resurrection
