God's grace is amazing, abundant, and free. There is nothing that we can do to save ourselves. To all of that we might happily agree but if this is the case, that Christ has done it all, then why would I ever need to change the way that I live? If he's got sin covered then why would I stop doing it?
Join us this Sunday as we continue digging into Romans 5-8 by working through chapter 6 together. These are dense sections of the Bible that push us to think deeply about who we are as followers of Jesus and what difference that makes for our lives each and every day.

This Sunday we're starting a new series called NEW. It's about the new life Jesus gives those who place their trust in him. The problem with the new life Jesus gives is that our old life keeps trying to get the upper hand. How do we wrestle with the tension of this? That's what this series is all about.
Looking forward to seeing you this Sunday as we explore Romans 5:1-11.
Yours in Christ,

The world and its religions are constantly telling us to be better people: lose weight, be disciplined, change this, work harder. But Jesus offers something entirely different. He offers to make us new. That’s what Christianity is about! But having been made new, what do we do when the old self rears its ugly head again?
Join us over June-July as we delve into Romans 5-8 and explore the new life Jesus offers us all.

A friend of mine sent me a text this week saying, "I’m pretty ticked off with God right now and I find it so hard to express that to him so we have a bit of a stalemate going on.”
What do you do when that's how you feel? Well, the Bible teaches that we need to lament: to bring our complaints to God and to beg him to act. This is something us Aussies aren't so good at. We love to complain on social media, to our friends, colleagues and family, but rarely do we complain to God. No wonder we live frustrated and anxious lives. Join us at church this week as we look at how the prayer of lament can help us when things aren't going great.
Can't wait to see you there.

This Sunday we're continuing our series on prayer, looking at whether it really changes anything. Some people argue that the only thing prayer changes is the prayer itself.
Others suggest that prayer changes God, and unhelpfully use it as some kind of stick thinking they can force God's hand.
So here's the question: does prayer change anything?
It's a massive question and I hope you come ready to discover the Bible's suprising answer.
Also this Sunday it's Mothers Day. Don't forget to plan a phone call to mum or to visit. Our amazing foodies team are putting on a wonderful spread after morning church, so bring your mum along. Plus there'll be stories at both 10am and...Continue Reading
