The Forgiveness of Sins – Solas in Ayr

Riverside Church in Ayr is a place we love visiting, at Solas. They were one of the host chuches for the Confident Christianity conference that we did in conjuction with Keswick in Ayrshire not long ago. On that memorable day, Andy Bannister, Sharon Dirckx and Dave Hutchings spoke, but this time it was Gavin Matthews who went to Ayr to preach at their service and bring them a Solas update.

Riverside have been studying The Apostles Creed over the last month or two, focussing in on that concide summary of key Christian beliefs about God and humanity. Gavin was given the line in the Creed “I believe…. in the forgiveness of sins”, which he said was a delight to preach on.  Gavin’s sermon is available to watch in the video above, and begins at 36:30 and the Solas update at 23:15. The whole Apostles Creed series is available on their YouTube channel.

“It’s always a privilege to visit Riverside Church”, Gavin said. “The place was really full, the church was in good heart and it was encouraging to see so many children heading off to Sunday School too. Riverside is a church which is intentional about sharing the gospel and serving their community and God is clearly blessing them as they faithfully serve. It was so good to be there with them in Sunday.”
