"And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness."
— Acts 4:31
The Christian life is impossible without the Holy Spirit. The power to follow Jesus does not come from us or our efforts; it comes from the person of God Himself, the one Jesus called “The Helper”. The Scriptures talk repeatedly about being baptised in, filled with, empowered by, sealed with and gifted by the Holy Spirit, in order that we might know the Father and imitate the Son. So, in this series, we will consider how that all works: what these experiences are, how to pursue them both corporately and individually, why walking in the Spirit is integral to a healthy Christian life, and what to do about it.
Andrew Wilson, our Teaching Pastor, explains a number of key terms relating to the Holy Spirit in a series of short Q&A videos. You can watch or download them here.

Here are a few books we would recommend to help you grow in your understanding of the Holy Spirit as we go through the series. They are available online from a variety of book shops.
Through the series, we will be releasing a number of podcast episodes to help us further explore some of the topics relating to the Holy Spirit. Make sure to subscribe so you don't miss out. You can find us on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, YouTube and number of other podcast platforms.
Families and Youth
As well as going through the series on Sundays, we will also be learning about the Holy Spirit through our midweek youth. We want all of our children, no matter what their age, to know that God wants to help them and be with them by His Spirit.
