The kingdom of God is at work in the world, in hidden ways, like yeast, and in visible ways, like the mustard tree which gows from a tiny seed. Many are suffering afflictions of various kinds in these days, but we encourage ourselves that God is at work. This week's message is from Rev Jackie Bellfield; prayers are by Nigel Mountford; readings by Alan White; hymns by Adrian Pallant and Pete Wildman, who hosts the podcast. The hymns are:
Lord, I lift your name on high
God moves in a mysterious way
Be thou my vision (you will find some variation in the online words)
