The Spirit

Our journey leads us to the moment that Jesus spoke to his disciples about many times, that the Holy Spirit would be poured out on them and would equip them and help them and reveal things to them and would dwell within in. As we celebrate Pentecost together and remember the incredible gift of the Spirit and rejoice in the birth of the Church, we want to take time to explore together two key things that the Holy Spirit does for the Church – he equips and he unites. He equips us with incredible gifts of grace and blessing and power, how can we be more expectant of that equipping? He unites us together with deep bonds and reminds us of our need for one another and our commitment to one another in every season.

1. The Spirit: Equipped

 1 Corinthians 12:1-11

James Cant - 12 Jun 2022

Through the Spirit, we are equipped! The Holy Spirit pours himself into the church in abundant ways, ‘for the common good’ and we get to work together as Spirit-filled believers. How has Holy Spirit equipped you, do you know or do you believe he has? How has Holy Spirit equipped Central? How can we continue to be open to the equipping and gifting of the Spirit among us?

2. The Spirit: United

 1 Corinthians 12:12-26

Peter Anderson - 19 Jun 2022

The Spirit doesn’t just equip, the Spirit unites us! Unity is tough, it’s hard to do, it’s messy and sometimes we get it wrong but it’s an important call to the Church at large and it’s a beautiful thing to participate in. How can we be unified both within our own church and also with other churches surrounding us? How can we celebrate and honour fellow believers? How does the Spirit help us to do that?
