Ehud: the left-handed assassin

Posted: 21 July 2017

The Old Testament book Judges reads much like a spaghetti western: there’s no sheriff  in town and the townsfolk have elected a villain. But as the tumbleweeds roll down the street, God’s cowboys stroll in for a showdown and ransom His people held captive.

I'd love to invite you to a new series we are starting this week as we look at the way God saves His people through a bunch of ragtag cowboys.

The Lord’s Supper

Posted: 14 July 2017

Someone once said that the world drinks to forget but Christians drink to remember. They were of course speaking of the Lord's Supper, in which we eat a bit of bread and drink from the vine to remember the body and blood of Jesus broken and shed for us and our salvation.

Join us this Sunday as our student minister, Brian Leung, teaches us what the Lord's Supper is about and how it helps us keep Jesus central.

We'll also be celebrating the Lord's Supper together at both 10am and 4.30pm.

The Resurrection

Posted: 07 July 2017

This Sunday we're very excited to have Phillip Jensen speaking at church on the subject of the resurrection. Not only has Phillip made a worldwide impact through his Bible teaching over the past 3 decades, he's also had a massive impact on my own life. There was a time when during university I was seriously considering walking away from faith in Jesus. One of the things God used to bring me back and give me a confidence in Jesus was Phillip's preaching. I can't wait to hear him teach so clearly from the Bible this Sunday on such an important topic.

Also this Sunday (AM service), we'll be celebrating with Amanda and Campbell the baptism of their daughter Elizabeth.

Have a...

The Longing for Intimacy

Posted: 30 June 2017

This Sunday is our last in our series on the Song of Songs and what it teaches us about intimacy. We're looking at who the author of the Song is and why they wrote it. We're also looking at how we deal with unfulfilled longings for intimacy and loneliness that we have.

The next two weeks we've got a couple of one-off messages coming from Phillip Jensen (next week) then Brian Leung (week after). After that we'll be starting a series in the Old Testament book Judges. Andy Bryan and I spent some time this week planning this series and we really can't wait to learn from this unforgettable book with you.

The Flame of Intimacy

Posted: 23 June 2017

It's been wonderful to hear from so many of you about how God is speaking to you through this series in Song of Songs. On Monday, I received this email:

I found last night awesome and I am so glad that I came along. I felt the sermon helped restore a healthy view of sex as a part of a wider commitment in marriage. The connection of being fully loved and fully known is one that resonates with me deeply. I found it also really helpful to hear how even in marriage, people can be frustrated with sex and it's not a perfect fix all remedy loneliness and unfulfilled desire.

I'm hoping you are finding this part of God's word as encouraging, healing and challenging as my friend has.

The Delights of Intimacy

Posted: 16 June 2017

So we started our series on the Song of Songs last week and while there was some trepidation, it was a great time of exploring a wonderful book and hearing questions from the floor. You can listen to the sermon here if you missed it.

This week is part 2 of the series and we are looking at the delights of intimacy. While the Song is not about sex, that doesn't mean it's not erotic. This week we're looking at the eroticism of the Song and what God has to say to us about sex.

We will have Q&A time at the end, and you can ask a question here if you don't feel comfortable sharing.
