Church Matters

By Alex Russon / May 5, 2024

Psalm 104 The bible contains 66 books in total, 39 of them in the Old Testament and 27 in the New. I mention this since some may believe it’s one continuous opus, but by splitting the story into separate books we’re able to better focus on specific themes, individuals and messages. For example, there are […]

Church Matters

By Alex Russon / April 22, 2024

1 Samuel 4 : 12 – 22 This week’s sermon from the Old Testament detailed the seizure by enemies of the ark of the covenant, a physical construct which the people of the age looked to as holy. The ark was whipped from under the Israelites’ noses and left them believing God had left them, […]

Church Matters

By Alex Russon / April 15, 2024

Resorting to ‘safe places’ is something all of us do since such places can feel familiar, giving us comfort. They could be homes, parks, the allotment, maybe a specific spot on a beach, even the bathroom, we all have our ‘go to’ locations when seeking peace and reassurance. Church can be people’s safe place. We […]

It was splendid seeing so many unfamiliar faces at the service on Sunday and a pleasure to share a few hours together on this the central day of the Christian faith.

Stonehaven’s churches lead their congregations into Holy Week on Sunday, the annual intro into Easter, the lessons therefore all about ‘the triumphal entry’ with Jesus entering Jerusalem on the back of a colt. He wasn’t just welcomed but heralded, folk spreading their cloaks out on the road before him, fawning in their adoration, lauding him […]

Church Life

By Alex Russon / February 20, 2024

Before any church sermon is preached, a prayer is first lifted to God, asking him to make known his will for our lives through the preaching of his word. When listening to a sermon we’re not looking to be entertained, necessarily, although that’s a happy bonus, we’re in truth seeking God’s message for us, discerning […]

Stonehaven Baptist Church this week

By Alex Russon / July 4, 2021

This week at Stonehaven Baptist Church our pastor Lewis Campbell shared the good news of God’s power in our lives when we choose him and don’t reject him. Receiving the hand that feeds us, not biting it. We learned too of the difference between the ministry of the law and of the spirit. The law […]

Stonehaven Baptist Church

By Alex Russon / June 6, 2021

The city of Corinth represented a crossroads in the country between east, west, north and south. It was a cosmopolitan place where peoples from many regions conjoined. Such a coexistence of people can be both a blessing and a challenge with shared joys and crossed swords being experienced, in equal measure, as cultures clash.  The […]
