Join us over July – September as we hear Jesus own brother, James, teach us how to be Real Christians.

      Sun, 20 July      How to get through trials

Jealous (Series in Exodus)

Posted: 09 May 2014

For most, jealousy is a negative emotion associated with wanting something that isn’t ours. Yet sometimes it’s right to be jealous. It’s right for a husband to be jealous for the affection of his wife, and it’s right for a child to be jealous for the attention of her father. As someone once wrote, “He that is not jealous is not in love.” So what if God were...

The Unstoppable Seed: Community Group Study Helpers

Posted: 14 February 2014

This Friday we look forward to next week as our Community Groups gather and look at the four Parables in Mark 4. I use the acronymn SLIM to remember them (soil, lamp, itself, mustard) but English was not a gift that God blessed me with so send through some that are better. These Parables have been titled the Kingdom Parables as Jesus refers to the 'Kingdom...

Jesus impact on ethnic diversity

Posted: 25 October 2013

This week I have been reading some of the history of the mistreatment of indigenous Australians. Yes I was taught about invasion and genocide in year 7 history, but maybe I was too young because looking back I was numb to the tragic events I was taught.

This Sunday is the final in our series, The Impact of Jesus on History, and we are looking at Jesus...

This is why my daughter will ask me first for a band-aid, to which my response is "where does it hurt honey?". Secondly, it is a promoter of healing, providing protection for the hurt to be restored again. The larger the wound the larger the band-aid, so...

New Series: Joined-Up Life

Posted: 04 July 2013

This Sunday we are starting a new series on Christian ethics called Joined-Up Life.

When it comes to ethics, most people think the Bible is a bunch of rules given by a God who is a moral policeman. Although there are rules in the Bible, that is not the best way to think about it.

It is better think think about Christian ethics as the way a fabric is...
