Life has its ups and downs. At times it can feel that the very ground we are standing on is shaking under our feet, and all that we thought was solid is crumbling before our very eyes. How do we stand when these seasons hit us and shake our life to the core? Come along this Sunday as we work through Psalm 46 and wrestle with what it looks like to have our feet on solid ground.

And just like that, another year has gone by and we're just a couple of days out from Christmas.
We've got three very special services planned and would love to have you join us as we close out our series by looking at Peace and Joy.

I hope you can join us and bring along a friend who needs to make peace with God and find joy in knowing Jesus.
Finally, I want to thank you for an amazing year together. I'm so looking forward to all God has in store for us in 2018!...Continue Reading

Jesus of Nazareth never held a political office, never wrote a book, never married, never attended university, and never visited a big city. He was a lower-class worker who died homeless and poor. Yet, in spite of all odds—obscurity, powerlessness, and execution—he is the most famous person in all of human history. Why?
Whether you're a seeker, sceptic or saint, why not start 2018 exploring the person at the heart of Christianity.

Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve been preparing for Christmas by looking at these kitschy words — peace, joy and all that stuff. So far we’ve seen that the words glory and grace speak to a deeper reality which ought to blow our minds and teach us to see Christmas as something wonderful and serious.
This Sunday we’re looking at the idea of light. Why do we hang lights at Christmas? Why can the Christmas message be summed up as the dawning of light? There's no more relevant subject for us as we struggle in a world filled with the darkness of death, disease, division, destruction, disappointment and divorce. Into our world, your world, the promise is: a light has dawned!...Continue Reading

This year we have a great range of special projects that we are asking you to give above and beyond your normal giving. We do it because we want more people to know of the extravagant generosity of God in sending his Son to bring hope that first Christmas.

Last week started our Christmas series as we tried to get behind the kitsch of Christmas and understand the word Glory. We found an answer to the question: If God exists, why doesn't he show himself more clearly to the world? If you missed the message, you can download it here.
This Sunday we are getting behind another word which is overfamiliar, the word Grace. Here are some Bible passages to help you prepare for Sunday.
Also don't forget this series is a great opportunity to invite people to hear about the love God expressed in his son Jesus.
10am Family carols service, BBQ and jumping castles for the kids

This Sunday we’re in between series and one of our student ministers, Seb Lane, is coming to speak on the subject of unsinkable faith from Matthew 14. It’s a great passage and an important subject for us to think about.
Also this Sunday, we're going to be having a time of sharing within the service over the things we were struck by and learnt during the vision series. We’d love for you to think through what God has been saying to you and our church over the past six weeks, and for you to jump up and share it on Sunday.
Also don’t forget to get your Christmas Party tickets here before Sunday.
Hope you have a great weekend and look forward to gathering as a church with you...Continue Reading
