Survey: The Future of Gadsby’s Hymns

With shrinking purchases of the hymnbook and the rising cost of printing, it is unlikely to be financially viable to keep four editions (two leather and two cloth) of the hymnbook in print in the future.

The GS Trust urgently needs to hear your views about the available range of Gadsby’s Hymnbook. We need to hear your views on the available editions and what you may be willing to pay for them. Please do not miss this opportunity to have your say! Paper copies may be obtained from our publications manager on 01582 765448.

The Church of Acts Two

The Scriptural Pattern for the Church today

Matthew J. Hyde

And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers … And all that believed were together, and had all things common … praising God, and having favour with all the people.’ (Acts 2:42-47)
That is Luke’s description of the New Testament church, built on the foundation of the Lord Jesus Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. The foundation has not changed. The Word of God has not altered. Do you recognise this as a picture of your church? If not, why not?
In this book we have a study of the New Testament church in its earliest days. It calls us to return to the apostolic pattern for the church. It challenges the church today to seek greater conformity with the Word of God.

Olney - the home of Amazing Grace

Paperback edition marking the 250th Anniversary, on 1st January 1773, when the well-known hymn Amazing Grace was first sung.

The Desires of a Living Soul

Clive Jefferys was a Wiltshire farmer who attended Little Zoar chapel, Studley, all his life, until he passed away in 1987. He learnt his lessons from nature and Scripture. He had a particular gift for recording his life experiences and spiritual desires in poetry. The subjects covered (including life’s changing scenes, seeking help from Jesus and ‘only speaking of little things’) will find an echo in the hearts of God’s people, while the poetry adds a warmth and succinctness that pro...
