God's grace is amazing, abundant, and free. There is nothing that we can do to save ourselves. To all of that we might happily agree but if this is the case, that Christ has done it all, then why would I ever need to change the way that I live? If he's got sin covered then why would I stop doing it?

The world and its religions are constantly telling us to be better people: lose weight, be disciplined, change this, work harder. But Jesus offers something entirely different. He offers to make us new. That’s what Christianity is about! But having been made new, what do we do when the old self rears its ugly head again?
Join us over June-July as we delve...Continue Reading

A friend of mine sent me a text this week saying, "I’m pretty ticked off with God right now and I find it so hard to express that to him so we have a bit of a stalemate going on.”
What do you do when that's how you feel? Well, the Bible teaches that we need to lament: to bring our complaints to God and to beg him to act. This is something us Aussies...Continue Reading

This Sunday we are exploring the most famous prayer in the world: The Lord’s Prayer. In it, Jesus teaches us how to pray and what to pray for. This prayer challenges us as to what is truly important and worth giving our lives to.

This Sunday we're continuing our series on prayer, looking at whether it really changes anything. Some people argue that the only thing prayer changes is the prayer itself.
Others suggest that prayer changes God, and unhelpfully use it as some kind of stick thinking they can force God's hand.
So here's the question: does prayer change anything?
It's a...Continue Reading

Prayer is the great privilege of every one of God’s children. We pray when we come to our heavenly father to ask him to do what only he can do. It's based on the assumption that he is both willing and able to help us. Perhaps our slowness to pray reflects our underlying doubts about God’s power and generosity.
Join us this May as we see God for who he...Continue Reading

The way we view something determines how we will see it. If we are pessimistic then we will see only the worst. If we are optimistic we will see only the best. But how does the Bible teach us how to view the world? And if I view the world the way the Bible shows me, then how does that make a difference to my life?
This Sunday we are digging into another...Continue Reading

We value both truth and love. But sometimes they seem in conflict. We can be tempted to privilege one over another or set aside one for the sake of the other. But the Bible calls us to live in truth and love. How do I do that? How do I live in truth and love?
Join us this Sunday as we look at the often forgotten book of 2 John. This book is short (fewer...Continue Reading
