Psalm 33 How can I make sense of life, the universe and everything?
The longest book in the Bible is a songbook, a wonderful collection of worship responses that range across every aspect of our human experience. It is packed full of realism. The writers are not afraid to confront the big questions of life, but they do so in the context of a trusting relationship with the God of the universe. So our five Bible readings will dip into this remarkable songbook, seeking to understand and apply the Psalmists’ teaching in relation to ‘searching for reality in a confusing world’.
We will see that the Psalms, and their New Testament reference to Christ, provide us with answers to the big questions of our day, whilst also feeding us for our personal discipleship: the Psalms are ‘the medicine chest for the soul’! Join us as we learn from their wisdom, relate that to our own world, and – most of all – follow the example of the songwriters in worshipping God with prayer, lament, praise and joyful hope!

Clayton TV is a television production unit, forming a ministry of The Jesmond Trust (a registered charity). We aim to produce programmes viewed nationally and internationally which fulfil the key purposes of Jesmond Parish Church in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK –
Godly Living: Bible based TV resources to train and encourage Christians.
Church Growth: Evangelistic material to persuade non-believers of the gospel.
Changing Britain: Programmes on ethics and social issues that will influence popular opinion and government policy.
Clayton TV’s long term aims are:
To build a large network of British and international viewers, Christian and non-Christian, regularly watching programmes with Christian content or worldview.
To influence public policy through the political clout of programmes with high viewing figures that persuasively advocate Christian ethics.
To provide a training centre for television production and so build a sizeable unit in the North East of England exporting trained Christians into the secular media.
To provide media resources for churches and mission organisations encouraging them to be involved in television media.
To change popular culture in the UK by growing a production unit large enough to secure commissions from the national channels.
