Posted: 20 September 2017

Samson: the sex-addicted saviour

This Sunday we've got the privilege of having Dave Jensen speaking evangelistically on the story of Samson. Dave is a powerful speaker and this would be a great Sunday to bring a friend to church.

Gideon: the cowardly cowboy

Posted: 04 August 2017

We've been challenged over the past couple of weeks as we've looked at the Old Testament book Judges and the way God uses people whom the world ignores to bring salvation to his people.

This Sunday Brian Leung will be speaking on the story of Gideon — a man who starts out a coward but who ends up overconfident and foolish. How do you tread that balance...
