Sunday 16th August - Action Heroes: Lydia

In Acts 16 we read about the conversion of Lydia in Philippi. She was a successful business woman, a trader in purple cloth.

She hears Paul speak about Jesus and asks to be baptised, along with her household. She welcomes Paul and Silas to stay at her home and then the growing church in Philippi begins to meet there, including the town jailor and his family after they hear about Jesus.

Revd. Susie Templeton will be preaching for us today.
