From the Heart: Encounters in the Psalms

Published on August 2, 2022

Join us for a new sermon series on the Psalms.

The Book of Psalms is a collection of Hebrew poetry. Almost half of the poems are attributed to David. They are full of emotion, wisdom, beauty and spiritual nourishment. The book was assembled after the destruction of Jerusalem and it was meant to be used by God’s people in exile as they struggled. It is like a ‘virtual temple’ which we can enter to experience the glorious mysteries of God in our own difficult times.

The Psalms are a doorway to amazing encounters with the living God. Join us each week as we walk into this wonderful book of lament, hope and praise.

We also invite you to join us on social media as we meet a few NewHopers and hear about the psalms that mean the most to them. This will be a fun way to connect as a church family and engage with God’s word together.

Join us on Facebook or Instagram, and if you would like to share your favourite psalm with our church family, let us know by emailing
