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.

Over the past two months we've spent our time wrestling with topics such as courage, guidance, and holy war as we've studied the book of Joshua. This Sunday is our last in the series as Andy Bryan teaches on Joshua's famous appeal at the end of the book to serve the Lord. We hope you can make it.
At the end of the service, there will be a time of sharing...Continue Reading
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...Continue Reading

'The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.'

"More than other idols, personal success and achievement lead to a sense that we ourselves are God, that our security and value rest in our own wisdom, strength and performance. To be the very best at what you do, to be at the top of the heap, means no one is like you. You are supreme." (Tim Keller)
This Sunday, Brian Leung, one of our student ministers,...Continue Reading

Someone once wrote, "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
Join us this Sunday as we look at how to have the courage of a lioness from the remarkable story...Continue Reading

This Sunday we're starting a new series on the book of Joshua. It's an Old Testament book about the people of God living with the promise of God in mind. As a result its very relevant to you and I as we are God's people living by God's promise that soon Jesus will return and bring us safely and certainly into the new heavens and new earth. It's going to be...Continue Reading
