A tender God comforting his children

This week it is Peter King, one of our deacons , who opens up God’s word to us. From our reading from the book of Revelation, to Peter meeting his baby cousin for the first time (over 60 years ago!) , to thinking of the work of Christian Aid and Samaritan’s Purse and lots of other stopping points in between, Peter talks to us about how a tender God comforts…

The Power of Three

Today we welcomed Phlip Law – a Methodist lay preacher from Elm Ridge in Darlington, but a friend of and occasional visitor to DBC.

God doesn’t need your fish!

Today we welcomed Kingsley from New Life Baptist in Northallerton. He fitted us in, between getting back from Ethiopia last week, and off to India next week! The first few minutes of his talk is about his ministry and travels, and then the sermon is based on one of Jesus’ appearances after the Resurrection, when he cooks breakfast for the disciples on the beach,…
