Devoted to liberation

Posted: 11 November 2016

This Sunday we’re wrapping up our series on devotion by looking at what it looks like for our church to be devoted to liberating people from the power of Satan and sin from Luke 11. The subject of deliverance and spiritual warfare is a key theme in the Bible, but one which many Christians either ignore or obsess over. We need to study the life and ministry...

Devoted to growing in Christ’s likeness (Maturity) by engaging with His Word in community
Devoted to the body of Christ (Ministry) by using our time, talents and treasure...

Devoted to community

Posted: 28 October 2016

"[A] community of love is meant to comfort the person who’s discouraged, to strengthen the person who’s weak, to encourage the person who has no hope, to come alongside the person who’s alone, to guide the person who’s lost his way, to give wisdom to the person lost in foolishness, to warn the person who’s beginning to wander, to correct the person turning...

Devoted to the body

Posted: 21 October 2016

One of the radical things which the Bible teaches is that there are no little people in the kingdom of God. We need each other because we are a body. And the body of Christ is not one big eyeball or nothing but a toenail: it is made up of many parts (1 Cor 12), and we are to function together in mutually helpful ways, recognising that while there are...

Devoted to growing

Posted: 14 October 2016

"Growth is the proof of life. It's natural and normal for all living things. Life never stands still. If you're not growing, you're dying." (Rick Warren)

One of the things we are devoted to as a church is growing. We want to be growing in faith, hope and love. Where there isn't growth there's decline and death. But where there is growth, there is joy and...

Are you satisfied yet?

Posted: 30 September 2016

Are you satisfied yet? The search for fulfillment has plagued humanity for millennia, and doesn't seem to be going anywhere any time soon. We live in a society driven by a seemingly insatiable desire for more- more wealth, more comfort, more knowledge, more experiences; and yet we are some of the least satisfied people in history. Have you ever thought that...

Where can we go to find help in trouble?

Posted: 23 September 2016

Life is by no stretch of the imagination plain sailing. Sometimes it feels like we are being blown and tossed on the seas of life and we can wonder whether we will ever find some solid ground. Psalm 46 says, "God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble." I am looking forward to spending some time in this Psalm with you this Sunday to see...

How to keep your passion for 80 years

Posted: 09 September 2016 / Joshua 14:6-15, Numbers 13-14

To be honest, this has been a bit of a rough week for me. This has been one of those weeks when I’ve been reminded over and over again just how easy it is to look at this world and get disheartened. Plans are frustrated, loved ones move away, and the brokenness of this world just hits home. I assume everyone knows the kind of week that I’m talking about. In...

How to find meaning in monotony

Posted: 02 September 2016

Life can sometimes feel monotonous. We can feel like we’re on the treadmill going nowhere and yet expending much energy. This Sunday Andy Bryan will be speaking on Joshua 13-21 which has surprising insights for us on how to find meaning in monotony. 

Ministry Fair

Also this week is the Ministry Fair. It’s going to be like O-week, but without the...
