What did DANIEL say?

What did Daniel Say?

The Daniel Project is outstanding...Wonderful...Excellent


We have a large number of DVD's of this outstanding movie which we are offering to homes in our area over the next few months.

This TV documentary by British production company Studio Scotland has been broadcast around the world on TV networks, Film-on-Demand Channels, shown in Town Halls, Civic Centres, Church Halls, Prisons, Universities and even in the outback of Australia and Africa. It is now available for YOU to watch in your own home.

War of the Worlds meets The Day the Earth Stood Still. The Daniel Project - science fiction or observable fact? This 90 minute feature length investigative documentary presents an overview of a complex subject and has been hailed by many as the “best Biblical prophecy film made”. It is claimed that individuals from antiquity recorded warnings from visitors outside of our time domain, warnings that only the final generation would understand. Many are convinced there is overwhelming evidence supporting the belief that this final generation is living now!

The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it."

A Good church members meeting last Wednesday with a lot of important decisions, one of which was to support an Indiginous Church Planter in India for a year.
Geoff preached this morning from Haggia again, giving us some very interesting thoughts from this small book. God's Word is alive and challenging for us today because it is His Word for all generations.

Sunday 22nd September 2013
Pleased to welcome Alan Willis to us this morning speaking from Psalm 8 and reminding us on the accuracy of the bible in every detail and how God made man in His own image and it was very good. A lovely reminder of the truths of Creation.

Sunday 4th August2013
Right in the midst of holiday season now and how fortunate we are to be able to take periods of rest when so many around the world are not. It was ordained by the Lord that all His creation should rest and it gives a chance to consider our lives and are we living them to the best - that is to the makers instructions?
We have had some good worship and teachings over the last month and welcomed visitors who appear to have enjoyed joining us. Hopefully they will take back to their home church something that the Lord has shown them.

Sunday 30th June 2013
'How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God'.  1 John 3:1 (NIV)
As we look back on the last month, which has been just a 'normal' month with no special meetings, we can marvel at the overwhelming love that God has for His creation. We have had testimonies every week of this 'lavishness' and His power in our lives, we have experienced His presence in our meetings and been challenged time and time again by the biblical teaching we have received.
Do join us if you can, we will not 'overpower you' but will make you very welcome.

Sunday 26th May 2013


For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the entire earth, to strengthen those whose heart is true to him.” 2 Chron 16:9 NRSV


We have had a wonderfull May programme with interesting speakers helping us to understand and recognise how God is working His purposes out in todays world. This morning was a lovely time of worship and sharing, while Geoff preached from 2 Chronicles on God's expectations for His people. An excellent study worth listening to again.
All our teachings are available to download from the TEACHINGS tab, but if you need Cd's of any [no charge], please let us know using the 'Contact' tab above. Boxed sets of the Moriel Teachings are available.

Sunday 12th May 2013

We have had an excellent weekend with Jacob Prasch of Moriel Ministries with large attendances and some excellent and encouraging teaching. This 'Big Man' as one person called him has a loud voice but a gentle heart with a love for the body of Christ. Saturday evening heard Billy giving his testimony of how God rescued him from the arms of satan at Hillsborough to bring him into the arms of Christ, while Jacob followed with a message for those who had not reached that point yet. Sunday's message at our 'normal service' was about
The Signatures of Satan and is available from the teachings tab now.
Cd's are available for all the teachings.

            2 Peter 3:11-12 (NIV)

David said to the Philistine, "You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the LORD Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, ……….All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the LORD saves; for the battle is the LORD's, and he will give all of you into our hands."


1 Sam 17:45-47(from The Holy Bible: New International Version.  Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984, by International Bible Society)

Updates 2012/2011

Sunday 30th December 2012
A good 'turn out' for the final service of the year with Bert Ball delivery a children's message and the main teaching on the theme of 'has Jesus Grown?' We were given some serious thoughts to take away with us as we look forward to 2013, a year nearer Jesus' return. Are you ready?

Sunday 16th December 2012
The Annual childrens Nativity this morning and we were entertained by shepherds angels and Mary and Joseph to a cery well produced playlet interspersed with songs of worship for the congregation. Geoff gave a short message on 'Is This the Time' and the children were given Christmas presents. A very enjoyable morning finishing with chats round the mince pies.

Sunday 9th December 2012
A North Wales flavour this morning as we welcomed Roy Thurley to preach for us.
A very worshipful selection of songs led us to the communion table and the sharing time was an encouragement of the Lord's working through His people. Roy gave us a teaching on Hannukah and it's relationship to the birth of Christ, leaving us with a message of being the 'Lord's Servant'
As normal the teaching will be available from the 'TEACHINGS' tab

Sunday 25th November 2012

We were pleased to welcome Dave Norcross, one of our own members to preach today and he gave a very good discourse on what is important to our lives, teaching from Jeremiah 29:11, 'for I know the plans I have for you...'

Sunday 11th November 2012
This morning we paused for a minute to recognise the sacrifice of many in times of war just before we took the Communion.
Geoff continued his teaching on Revelation bringing out the relevance for today in a very clear w
ay. Download it from the 'Teachings' tab.
Sarah reports that she is having a 'wonderful time' and 'loves it here in Israel' as she serves the Lord.
She says
'One thing I have learned this week is that God is present throughout everything. Every snapped photo and small blessing is all thanks to him!'

Sunday 4th November 2012
Another good morning in the presence of our Lord and Saviour as we worshipped and gave thanks for all His bountiful blessings. Some very touching testimonies and requests for prayer.

Sunday 7th October 2012
Today's worship was lively and enthusiastic with some inspiring testimonies and concluding with a very thoughtful and encouraging teaching from Revelation 16.

Saturday 6th October 2012

We have had a lovely meeting with Alec Passmore giving a warm encouraging message pointing out the urgency to consider the Christian Faith at this present time. Preceeding this was a time of friendly fellowship over a delicious Hot pot supper and some lovely singing from Lynda and the group.

We would love to see you with us.Why not come and experience a sincere and thoughtful time of worship, which may be quite different to what you have experienced to date.

Sunday 30th September 2012
Harvest Thanksgiving Family Service today with traditional harvest theme and the teaching directed as much to the children as to the adults. Stephen Wells did a very good job at this, bringing a giant light bulb from a lighthouse to illustrate his story.
It was also prize giving today, recognising the importance of the children within the church who received a round of applause for all their efforts.
Don't miss the SUPPER AND PROHECY evening next Saturday with Alec Passmore who has a lovely easy manner to sharing his knowledge of biblical prophecy in relation to present day events. 

Sunday 16th September 2012
Lovely meditative time of worship this morning leading to some very good sharing on a personal level. Geoff continued to preach through Revelation and this morning was up to chapter 15 and gave a very challenging teaching about our Christian walk. This is available to download as always from our download page (see the tab to the side)
 We are looking forward to our Supper and Prophecy evening on the 6th October. Go to the Prophecy Meetings page for details. 

  Sunday 19th August 2012
Today was Testimony Sunday in which several people give their testimonies instead of having a sermon. We had a lovely time of Fellowship and Worship together and the three testimonies were inspiring and were witness to the miracle working power of our Lord Jesus Christ in the lives of normal people. The finished work of Christ upon the cross is still working today and will continue to work till He comes back to claim His people soon.The testimonies are not on line but if you would like to hear them please contact us [tab above].

Sunday 12th August 2012
We hope that you are able to relax and enjoy the brief spells of good weather, now that the excitement of the Olympics has gone. We applaud the success of the games, both on the field and the organisation which shows that when human beings focus on an objective and work together then there is achievement, enjoyment and satisfaction. In the Christian life you will also find that those Christians who are most 'alive' and believable as  Christians are those who not only have accepted Jesus as their Saviour but have also applied themselves to the study of the bible and working within God's community in 'showing their faith by their deeds' [James 2:18]

Today Geoff Farnell spoke on Revelation 12,  difficult passage unless you are familiar with the scriptures, but Geoff gave us food for thought on how we can apply this scripture to our present life. Download it from the 'TEACHINGS' tab

Sunday 24th June 2012
Music was led by 'team 2' this morning-perhaps a younger emphasis? Andrew continued his talks with the young and 'young at heart' and was good at getting the children involved and led us into more worshipful music before communion.
A good time of sharing with some prayer requests before the sermon which was given by Dave Norcross who gave us a good teaching from one of the lesser read 'Letters'. Overall a very good morning in the presence of the Living Lord and His people.

Sunday 3rd June 2012
What a great two days we have had with the teaching of Brian Gemmel at the 'Signs of the Times' Conference. His gentleness coupled with a real love for the Lord and great depth of study, gave us thought provoking and challenging insight to scriptural proclamation. The recordings will be available shortly.
We do hope that you enjoy your Royal Celebrations, but also hope that you do realise who is the Real Royalty that we should bow our knee to and who is 'King Forever'!

Sunday 20th May 2012
We have continued to worship the Lord our God in a consistant and faithful manner week by week as we come together to give thanks for all our blessings and expect to hear God's voice through the preaching of some very able and gifted preachers. Is it any wonder then that God's people do not rush home after the service, but remain to chat and share, comfort and encourage each other over refreshments. We do invite you to come and experience our worship which comes from a deep personal belief rather than a quick emotional experience and see if God is calling you to join us!
We have our Prophecy Conference on  2/3rd June when Brian Gemmell will share with us his study on world events and the relevance to prophecy as foretold in the scriptures.
You are welcome to join us at St John's Church Hall, Birkdale. We are in the final stages of editing our Church News which will be distributed to 2000 homes in Ainsdale and Woodvale as well as being published on this website. 

Sunday 8th April 2012
A Happy Easter to everyone. A Glorious time of Worship with the people from Young Life, who gave testimonies and sang to us, while Vinny Commons gave us a message of hope and truth.
Do take a look at this video which I think you will enjoy

Sunday 25th March 2012
A wonderful morning as we worshipped the Lord along with friends who joined us to celebrate 50 years of marriage of our pastor and his wife. It was a really happy occasion and Bert Ball gave us a message of how God has been present right through his life.
Afterwards we all enjoyed a superb buffet arranged by Marion and Lorna, with a message of thanks from Geoff and Judy and testimony of God's grace shining out from the Golden Wedding couple.

Sunday 4th March 2012
Very few absences this morning and a great time of worship. The music group led us with some really uplifting songs and hymns of Praise and Geoff continued his teaching through Revelation, this week focussing on the message to the Laodicean Church. We have our members AGM this Wednesday which is always an interesting and lively time ensuring that we continue to follow in the pathway that the Lord is leading us.
This Friday we will have the first of our two young peoples meetings in Christ Church, Southport, when Billy Ainscough will give his testimony of how he was rescued from suffication and death in the crush of the crowd to miraculous release and life to the full. 

Sunday 22nd January 2012
Well we are well into the new year now with 3 excellent Sunday meetings, 3 mid week prayer and bible studies and a thought provoking Prophesy meeting.
Today Geoff was preaching and he commenced what is intended to be a series on the book of Revelation, a much neglected book when it comes to bible study and therefore a much misunderstood book. If you would like to follow this teaching then you may download it from the teachings tab or you would be most welcome to join us on a Sunday.
Our next Prophecy Meeting will be on 21st April and will be a 'Supper and Prophesy' meeting to be held at St John's Birkdale Church Hall. If you would like an invitation, then please contact us. (for catering purposes).

New Beginnings

A New Year full of promise and another day closer to the Lords return. Do we eagerly await this momentus event or is it a dark mystery which we would rather avoid? Yet it is something that it would be very foolish to avoid because it will affect you and it may be sooner rather than later!
As we enter a new year we still bring our old self into it and that old self will very soon spoil it, no matter how many promises you have made, but how much better to enter that new year allowing the Creator of this world to guide us each step of the way and to renew our minds according to His will.
May we wish you a very happy and peaceful new year walking in the footsteps of the Living Christ who came into this earth so as to redeem you from satan's snares.

"Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is — his good, pleasing and perfect will." Rom 12:2
(from The Holy Bible: New International Version.  Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984, by International Bible Society)

Light over the Stable

"The glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together."

Isaiah 40:5

from Spurgeons writings;

'We anticipate the happy day when the whole world shall be converted to Christ; when the gods of the heathen shall be cast to the moles and the bats; when Romanism shall be exploded, and the crescent of Mohammed shall wane, never again to cast its baleful rays upon the nations; when kings shall bow down before the Prince of Peace, and all nations shall call their Redeemer blessed. Some despair of this. They look upon the world as a vessel breaking up and going to pieces, never to float again. We know that the world and all that is therein is one day to be burnt up, and afterwards we look for new heavens and for a new earth; but we cannot read our Bibles without the conviction that—

"Jesus shall reign where'er the sun
Does his successive journeys run." We are not discouraged by the length of His delays; we are not disheartened by the long period which He allots to the church in which to struggle with little success and much defeat. We believe that God will never suffer this world, which has once seen Christ's blood shed upon it, to be always the devil's stronghold. Christ came hither to deliver this world from the detested sway of the powers of darkness. What a shout shall that be when men and angels shall unite to cry "Hallelujah, hallelujah, for the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth!" What a satisfaction will it be in that day to have had a share in the fight, to have helped to break the arrows of the bow, and to have aided in winning the victory for our Lord! Happy are they who trust themselves with this conquering Lord, and who fight side by side with Him, doing their little in His name and by His strength! How unhappy are those on the side of evil! It is a losing side, and it is a matter wherein to lose is to lose and to be lost for ever. On whose side are you?'

Light over the Stable

The Shepherds

There were some shepherds in that part of the country who were spending the night in the fields, taking care of their flocks. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone over them. They were terribly afraid, but the angel said to them, "Don't be afraid! I am here with good news for you, which will bring great joy to all the people. This very day in David's town your Savior was born — Christ the Lord! And this is what will prove it to you: you will find a babywrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."

Suddenly a great army of heaven's angels appeared with the angel, singing praises to God:

 "Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and peace on earth to those with whom he is pleased!"

When the angels went away from them back into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, "Let's go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us."

So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph and saw the baby lying in the manger. When the shepherds saw him, they told them what the angel had said about the child. All who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said. Mary remembered all these things and thought deeply about them. The shepherds went back, singing praises to God for all they had heard and seen; it had been just as the angel had told them.

Luke 2:8-20 TEV

The Christmas Story

Joseph went from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to the town of Bethlehem in Judea, the birthplace of King David. Joseph went there because he was a descendant of David. He went to register with Mary, who was promised in marriage to him. She was pregnant, and while they were in Bethlehem, the time came for her to have her baby. She gave birth to her first son, wrapped him in cloths and laid him in a manger — there was no room for them to stay in the inn.
[Luke 2:4-7 TEV]

Regular updates

Sunday 11th December 2011
A great family time at the Children's Christmas play when the Christmas story was told with an up to date twist to it. The children performed well giving us moments of laughter and entertainment.
It was good to see so many visitors who joined in with the worship and enjoyed the fellowship afterwards.
Well done to everyone.

Sunday 27th November 2011
A lovely 'warm' time of worship this morning with only a few missing. News that one of our senior members has died and is now 'in Glory' with the Lord. Always a sad moment but with that certainty of eternity with the Lord. Her funeral will be next Thursday, 11.20 at Southport Crematorium. Our pastor Geoff preached this morning on 'Judgment is Coming' and this can be downloaded and listened to from the tab on the right.

Sunday 13th November 2011
It was good to welcome Vinny Commons back with us to give a message about remembering using 2 Peter 1 as his text.

What a blessing it is after a busy week to meet together with the family of God to praise and worship Him. It was just a normal Sunday this week, no visiting speakers or special events, yet we were soon in God's presence as we responded to His touch in prayers and worship.
There were stories to tell and news to share and an amazing testimony of God's healing touch on a sick relative
The Sunday teachings can be accessed from the TEACHINGS tab on the ri
ght some 24-48 hrs later .

Sunday 23rd October 2011

He spoke with compassion and a depth of study accompanied with real life experience. His teachings will be available on the site or you may obtain Cd's of the recordings by contacting us. We were pleased to welcome  a lot of visitors on both days and our singing was worshipful and a match for any Welsh choir.

Friday 4th November we have the return visit of internationally renowned speaker Jacob Prasch, a man of integrity who works amongst the poor and persecuted around the world giving so much of himself so that others may understand more of God's Grace. He will be speaking on the theme 'The Bible in the Final Days' and be relevant to what is actually happening in these final days. Click on the title for the details.

Sunday 12th September 2011
We have had a variety of speakers this last month covering topics of Wisdom, God's Glory and the persecuted church and all these teachings are available from the 'teachings' tab. It's been good to have visitors and we have had some really good times of knowing God's presence within the meeting. We now look forward to the autumn with a renewed vigour and expectation with our first 'public' meeting being the Creation Ministries meeting, 'God the Universe and Me' with Dominic Statham on Friday 14th October commencing 1930hrs
Sunday 14th August 2011
The teachings for the last two weeks are now on the site and I thoroughly recommend them to you. If you are going away on holiday, why not download them to your IPod or MP3 player and listen to them in all that spare time you will be having!.

Sunday 31st July 2011
We have continued to enjoy warm fellowship and uplifting teaching as well as welcoming visitors during this holiday period. Today's speaker was Gordon Taylor who gave us an encouraging talk on the value of boasting about the cross.
We welcomed holiday makers from Lancaster this morning and give a friendly, but not overpowering welcome to all visitors, so if you are visiting the area, do call in. Our Morning Worship commences at 1030hrs.

A busy few weeks, but web site up to date and all the Teachings are loaded up. The Lord has blessed us richly and we continue to give thanks.
All the Conference recordings have been mailed out [except the order without an address!!! sorry, do contact me with an address]. They should arrive this week.

Sunday 5th June 2011
What a wonderfull few days we have had at the conference with Thomas [Tommy] Ice and Paul Wilkinson. The choice of venue was very good and we were rewarded with large attendances and good weather. The music group excelled with the larger area to fill and Andrew loved playing the grand piano, but by far the best part was the very professional presentations by Paul and Tommy as they taught us from the depths of their personal study and research. All the teachings were recorded, both in audio and video and can be ordered, or listened to by downloading from the teachings tab.

Sunday 29th May 2011
Another special day, particularly for the two people who were baptised today and for the friends and relations who came to support them. The pictures will be loaded on the site later in the week.
Geoff preached from Mark on the messianic miracles that Jesus performed and why they were so important and then Barabara and Celvin gave their testimonies of why they were being baptised before proceeding to the pool for the ceremony. It was a wonderful uplifting morning for everyone.

Sunday 15th May 2011
A special day today as we welcomed Anis and Nawal from the 'House of Light' in Israel to our meeting. Our worship was as vocal and participatory as normal as we worshipped our God in song and prayer interspersed with God's Word.
Anis and Nawal talked about the work they are doing in Israel, using testimony, illustrations and also challenging us in our walk with the Lord. They had a lot of pictures to show us and it was all very inspirational. Do listen to what was said from the Teachings page.

Sunday 1st May 2011
The recording for this week will be delayed.
Our Speaker next week
will be Dr Paul Wilkinson
one of the Key speakers at our PWMI Conference in Southport next Month

Sunday 24th April 2011
What a wonderful morning we had, celebrating both Easter Sunday and the public witness of the validity of the Easter message in the testimonies and baptism of two new Christians. What better way can there be of celebrating the our Saviours defeat of the satanic powers through his sacrifice and resurrection. Geoff's preaching was vibrant and to the point and can be heard from the teachings tab.     

Sunday 17th April 2011
Good to welcome some visitors this morning to enjoy our worship and to hear  testimony of our Great Lord and Saviour. We are indeed a privilaged community. Russ Fairhurst taught us from 1 Thessalonians challenging us to consider if we indeed still worshipped idols and how this can affect our relationship with God.
Last night at the PWMI meeting we had an excellent message from Roy Cook.
Both teachings are available from the TEACHING tab to the right.

Sunday 10th April 2011
Fewer numbers today because of the holiday period, but our worship was 'acceptable to the Lord' and just as true. Geoff commenced preaching from 2 Corinthians 3:7  going on to a detailed and carefully explained teaching on the Day of Atonement which is something well worth listening to. Download it from our 'TEACHINGS' tab and enjoy the clear explanation.

Sunday 3rd April 2011
Today's meeting was one of those very special meetings and in some ways was a continuation of last weeks. The Spirit of the Lord was truly blessing us in this mornings Worship and we heard testimony after testimony of how the Lord had been working in peoples lives through this past week, transforming and encouraging them into a closer relationship with Himself. Our speaker was Roy Thurley from Llandudno who spoke on the Dividing Wall and the history of Jewish anti semitism bringing it up to date with what is happening with the Jewish people now.

Sunday 26th March 2011
A really good meeting last night in the double bill Moriel series, with an excellent attendance to hear two well presented topics.
Today's meeting continued the excellence with really happy singing to our Lord, sincere prayer requests and Geoff preaching on the topic of our sacrifice to God. The social time together was enhanced with the remains of the 'goodies' from last night. All teachings are available from the teachings tab.     

Sunday 20th March 2011
We were pleased to welcome back Geoff Ellis to give us his message from the Lord this morning. Speaking from Matthew 24, then moving on to Genesis, he gave us a very clear and logical understanding of what the bible is saying to us in these days. He commended the 'band' or as we would say the music group, who led us through a very worshipful time leading to some lovely testimonies of a gracious God. The teaching will be available shortly from the 'teaching' tab.

Sunday 13th March 2011
A full group leading the music this morning, which we really appreciated and an even fuller congregation. We had some wonderful testimonies of the Lord's blessing amongst His people and the whole morning flowed as the Lord ministered to us. Geoff preached from Ezekiel 24 on where our treasure really is in the teaching 'God Always has the Last Word' This can be downloaded from the link

Sunday 27th February 2011
The songs of worship chosen this morning, really touched the hearts of the congregation as we opened up to The Lord. A wonderful time of singing and praise followed by some touching testimonies.
Geoff was preaching this morning and continued on the theme from his new year talk which indicated where we felt the Lord was leading us this year and today's teaching was on Leadership, starting from Hebrews 11-12:2, but focusing upon Elijah. This teaching will be available from the teachings tab shortly.

Sunday 20th February
We were happy to welcome Bill Rodway as our preacher this morning who presented an amusing yet challenging exposition starting at Matthew 18:15-35.
His teaching 'A Bankrupt Church' is available to download from the 'TEACHINGS' link

Sunday 6th February
More of a family service this morning with the children joining in with some of the songs using percussion instruments. A great time of worship of the Lord on a joyous and celebratory manner with Bert Ball showing the children how his ticket only allowed him to make the journey. Later he talked to the adults with a humerous but relevant teaching based on his own life and from Galations 2:11-21.

Sunday 23rd January
A bonus weekend with the PWMI meeting last night and then our normal joyful time of Worship today, with the addition of John on the snare drum sympathetically adding a beat which is so much better than the artificial keyboard one.
Dereck Chamberlain was our preacher this morning and his teaching 'Jesus is our Stronghold' can be downloaded from here

Sunday 16th January
A good turnout this morning with our normal active participation in worship and sharing of the Lord's working in our lives. Oh, how uplifting it is to be with the Lord's people on a Sunday [and any other time]! The children were out all meeting having the celebration that they missed out on before Christmas because of the snow. Geoff preached from Acts 4 on the power of prayer and this can be listened to from the TEACHINGS tab.

Don't miss the PWMI meeting this Saturday at Bethesda - see poster.

Sunday 2nd January

How wonderful it was to be back together again after such a long 'enforced break' due to the weather. Fellowship with our God Given Family is something special and needs to be experienced.
It was Dedication Sunday today, when our pastor reviewed the year past and suggested where he felt God was leading us in the new year ahead. We were all attentive!
Geoff preached from Psalm 65 giving us food for thought and encouragement for the coming year ahead.

Circled with the Glory of God may be downloaded from here.
