Thomas Place evening services, the first Sunday of each month, digs into big questions. This month: Does constant repetition of the Lord's Prayer make it nothing more than meaningless ritual? Senior Pastor Andrew Brook considers the places of written and spontaneous prayers, and the special place of this prayer, taught to us by Jesus. He also points to ways to find new riches in this precious gift. [ Thomas Place - Easter 3 ]

Duration: 20 mins 54 secs
Burning hearts change lives. When our hearts burn, we walk and we talk, we ask questions; and we invite people in. All these elements are visible in todays Gospel about the risen Jesus meeting the disciples on the road to Emmaus. [ Organ/Choir - Easter 3 ]

Passage: 1 Peter 1:3-9
Duration: 22 mins 34 secs
Christians often feel out of step with the world around us, and that is not a bad thing. We may be in very lucky places; but we are not to be conformed to this world, not to be sucked in by materialism. We get our value from only one place: the fact that Jesus Christ thought we were worth rescuing, at the cost of his own life. A life of thanksgiving is one appropriate response. Today Peter tells us to always be ready to give an account of our story in God. We don't need fancy technical language. Just our story, told like it is. [ Organ - Easter 2 ]

Passage: Matthew 28:5
Duration: 20 mins 49 secs
What to do if you are looking for Jesus. 1. Do not be afraid (it takes courage). 2. Trust God to know what you are looking for. 3. Investigate and eliminate (there are many substitutes that cannot give Peace or Life). 4. Go and tell (talk, listening, explore). God is one step ahead of you, and will lead you to Gallilee where you will find answers. 5. Hold on to Jesus' promises. (The reality is that God is seeking you.)

All Christians are called and "ordained" (set apart) to join in the worship of the Most High God. We are called to surrender ourselves to him completely, and to let our lives of service become our worship. [ Organ/Choir - Palm Sunday ]

Thomas Place services explore big questions. Many people think that evils spirits are just a superstition; but personal experience supports the biblical view entirely. But this is not to fill us with fear, because experience also underlines the truth that Christ has already mastered evil. There may be devils, but they are not in charge. [ Thomas Place - Lent 5 ]

Passage: John 11:1-45
Duration: 18 mins 24 secs
Death, it turns out, is not the worst thing that can happen to us. With the resurrection of Lazarus, Jesus points to his own resurrection. Both are proof that God is master of a life that continues beyond the moment we call death. But if Jesus hung back for four days so that God's glory might be evident, if he knew his friend would shortly walk out of hte grave… why then did he weep? Today's insights from guest preacher Pastor Mark Tuffin. [ Organ/Choir - Lent 5 ]
