19/08/2018: Proverbs 9: 1-6 & John 6: 51-58: Maggie Whiteman (Guest Preacher) For several Sundays we have been following John’s extended section of Jesus’ teaching about spiritual food. To those who first heard Jesus talk about his body and blood, the words made little sense. But John and the church cherish the words as the meaning of every Communion.

12/08/2018: 1 Kings 19: 4-8 & John 6: 35, 41-51: Fr David Armstrong After the feeding of the five thousand, John records Jesus speaking at length about the mysterious real and true bread he proclaimed himself to be. The listening people found all this hard to understand.

05/08/2018: John 6: 24-35: Maggie Whiteman (Guest Preacher) (There is no text version available.) Jesus made a small amount of bread enough for several thousand people – and they want more of the same. He teaches them the deeper meaning of the sign of the bread he gives: that he is himself the satisfaction of all our deepest needs.

29/07/2018: 2 Kings 4: 42-44 & Ephesians 3: 14-21 & John 6: 1-21: The Venerable Annette Cooper, Archdeacon of Colchester (There is no text version available.) For a few Sundays now, we interrupt the sequence from Mark, and hear John’s teaching about bread – bread as necessary daily food and Jesus himself as bread from heaven, food of eternal life. It begins with the miraculous feeding of the five thousand.
