December 08, 2019

37:41
October 06, 2019
Revelation 2:8-11 & 3:14-22 - Where would you rather live?
When you compare the letters to Smyrna and Laodicea it becomes clear that wealth is a far more dangerous position than poverty and persecution! We look at what it means to be Luke warm, and the hope that Jesus offers in repentance as he stands at the door and knocks!
41:23
September 22, 2019
Revelation 3:1-6 - The Danger of No Danger
This week we examine the letter to the church in Sardis, a church whose greatest danger was no danger at all. We'll also see that we face the same danger, living in a culture where it's relatively easy to be a Christian.
42:06
September 15, 2019
Revelation 2:12-29 - Subtle but dangerous
The most dangerous enemy doesn't always come with a frontal attack, rather we find the danger in the temptation to compromise, we examine the letters to Pergamum and Thyatira to see what the danger of compromise looked like for them and we'll question where might we be tempted to compromise today.
46:39
September 09, 2019
Revelation 2:1-7 - But without Love...
The church in Ephesus in many ways is a model church, they've laboured and endured and haven't tolerated evil, working hard against false teachers, but in this crucial letter from Jesus to the Ephesians, he tells them he has this one thing against them they've abandoned the love they had at first. As Jesus presents them with a choice we too need to come along for the ride and make sure that we listen to what Jesus has to say to this church.
46:03
September 01, 2019
Revelation 1:4-20 - A bigger picture of Jesus

47:45
August 25, 2019

Matthew 26:57-28:20 - The last word
Our final sermon in our Matthew series and here we're challenged with the proof of all that Jesus has said along with the simple application that should drive all we do as Christians.

July 29, 2019
Matthew 26:57-75 - Two Trials
In this passage we see two trials play out, one official with Jesus, one unofficial with Peter, though each have lots of similarities they have very different outcomes. These trials helps us to think about how will we stand firm when pressure comes to our faith.
38:51
July 22, 2019
Matthew 26:31-56 - A Deep Cup
We take a deeper look at this scene that so many of us are so familiar with and notice the depth of the anguish that Jesus experienced and as we do, we'll contrast his resolve with the disciples and ultimately all humanity's failure.
38:24
July 15, 2019
Matt 26:1-16 - Over the top
We look at a shorter section this week and see a simple but incredibly extravagant act by an unnamed woman. How will you respond to this lavishing on Jesus?

46:40
June 24, 2019
Matthew 25 - How to invest best!

Matthew 24 - Save the Date
What does the future hold for those who follow Jesus? This is a passage that's had many different interpretations and divided many churches. But what does Jesus really say about the future and how should that affect our lives?
44:50
June 09, 2019
Matthew 23 - Acting the Hypocrite
No one like hypocrisy and here after a number of heated exchanges with the Pharisees, things culminate here in Ch23, with Jesus scathing rebuke of the hypocrisy that has been so present in their lives.

41:54
June 03, 2019
Matthew 22 - FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out)
Jesus often gives warnings to those who reject His offer, but what about people who’ve RSVP’d yes to heaven? Here in Matthew 22 Jesus gives a chilling warning, and also shows us how to secure our spot.
42:37
May 27, 2019
Matthew 21 - Responding to Jesus
This passage marks the star of Passion week in Matthew gospel and along with his entrance into Jerusalem Jesus makes a bold statement about who he is. The question is how will we respond?

This week we see Jesus engage with two very different kinds of people, one a bunch of kids the other a wealthy, upstanding and moral man.

43:31
April 14, 2019
Ruth - Maintaining Hope In Suffering
This week we look across the first two chapters in Ruth to see what we can learn about suffering. We see Naomi hit rock bottom and so ask when those lows come where is God and how do we hold on and keep going.
39:04
April 08, 2019
Vision & Values - Using our Treasure for the Kingdom
This week we wrap up our 'Vision & Values' series by getting practical when it comes to our treasure.

50:29
April 01, 2019
Vision & Values - Holy

We're up to our second last value, this time we look at Joy - 'Belonging to Jesus means becoming God's children and gaining an eternal inheritance!

41:13
March 10, 2019
Vision & Values - Love

49:56
March 03, 2019
Vision & Values - Mission

50:45
February 25, 2019

In our final look at 1 Peter, we're warned about a danger that prowls, the devil who wants to devour us, a warning we need to take seriously, but we also see that he is resistible, that God gives us weapons to help us stand firm against his attacks.
36:38
January 27, 2019
1 Peter 5:1-7 - Keeping Church Solid
In the midst of a hostile world, the people inc church are like sheep, prone to wander, and so here Peter shows us the need for a structure to keep church solid so we can stand firm as exiles in this world.
39:30
January 20, 2019
1 Peter 4:12-19 - Trading your cow for a handful of beans
Peter tells us that we shouldn't be surprised when we suffer for Christianity, even more than that we should rejoice when we do! Here we ask the question the christian life worth the suffering it costs us?
38:13
