Welcome to St Andrew's, Cobham. We are Cobham’s parish church and our aim is to know Jesus, and to make him known. We offer a host of activities for adults and children. Please explore our website to find out more. We hope to see you soon.
Pentecost. The Holy Spirit, promised by Jesus, came upon the waiting disciples and transformed them. They went out into the street telling of Jesus in the languages of the many nationalities of people represented in Jerusalem, languages they had not learned themselves. The people asked each other "how is it we hear them speaking in our own languages?".
If we want to tell people about the difference that Jesus and the Holy Spirit have made in our own lives, we, too, need to speak in the language our listeners understand, that they can relate to. Not church-speak, not Christian-ese, not "the right words", but our every day words, real, from the heart.
Only around 7% of communication is through the actual words, what "language" does our non-verbal communication speak? Do our lives tie in with our words?
