This Sunday is VISION SUNDAY! It’s a chance to hear where we’ve come from and where we’re going as a church. There’ll be stories, book giveaways, embarrassing photos from the past and next steps for us all to take in following Jesus.

I hope you're enjoying the year and our series Introducing Jesus. I find that over time my view of Jesus shrinks and I stop thinking he is wonderful. It's for that reason I love starting the year reading a gospel and reminding myself of how great Jesus is.

We had an amazing time last week as we kicked off our new series: Introducing Jesus. It's an important series for two reasons. First, we don't want our love to grow cold for Jesus, so it's essential we start each year by looking directly at him in the gospels. Second, we want our friends and family to know him. And they won't, unless we know him and are...Continue Reading

Another reason we start the year like this is because I believe summer is great time to invite friends and family along to...Continue Reading

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...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...Continue Reading

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...Continue Reading
