Service Date: 29 October, 2017

Worship was led by The Revd. Robert Beard who preached on Martin Luther and his role in the Reformation. Luther believed that grace was achieved through faith in God, not through acts, and that the Bible is the ultimate word of authority. Everyone should have access to the Bible in their own language. Luther held some extreme views at the end of hs life with which we would not identify but he does teach us the importance of being willing to discuss and debate with people who hold opposing views to our own.
