How to watch on YouTube/Smart TV


You can use some of these in Growth Groups or alone:

Read through Matthew 6:1-4 & 16-18

  1. In our culture, what things do people do to look like good people to others and why?
  2. Are there ways in which we (individually or as Christians generally), might be doing similar things without even realising it? (Something I am very aware of is how easy it is to copy the world around us rather than Jesus and not even realise it).
  3. What do you think about the statement that ‘Everyone is needy at times?’  What sorts of need are you aware of in our church family and our wider community with which we might be able to help?
  4. Fasting. What is your experience of fasting? Has it helped you focus on God? How can we fast secretly while carrying on with work and family life?
  5. Are there any actions or Bible verses which you find helpful in becoming more holy (ie more like Jesus)?

What can I pray for?

  • Give thanks and pray for those we employ as a church – our administrator (Suzanne), youth worker (Samuel), children’s & families leader (Chris) & cleaners (Di & Teckla)
  • Pray for those in our community who are without jobs – and also those who feel over-worked, especially following the pandemic.
  • Pray for the government as they make decisions about finances – gathering and distributing money – in the wake of COVID and Brexit
