This Sunday we’ve got Andy Bryan speaking on what we can expect in the Christian life from John 15.
Expectations are very important! When our expectations are awry, we find ourselves in a world of trouble. Tomorrow I’m competing in my first 46km trail run, and part of the preparation is getting my expectations right for how painful it’s going to be.

Our lives are stuffed with trifles and trinkets—a visible sign that we are not satisfied. Indeed, our stuffed lives are like the bloated stomachs of starving children. They betray our hunger, not our satisfaction."

I wonder how often you stop to ask the question 'what is life all about?' As both a social worker, and now as a pastor, I've had cause to ask that question many times over and I've seen people come to many conclusions. If I've learned nothing else, it is that people in our city are seeking something deeper than the superficial answers that modern secular...Continue Reading

G.K. Chesterton famously said, “Every man who knocks on the door to a brothel is really looking for God.”
Serious? Yep! He’s making the point that within us all there’s an insatiable search for something more. Join us over summer as we consider Jesus’ answers to our deepest longings.
