God Redeems - Exodus 12:1-13 & Exodus 14:11-31
In Exodus today we see how God fulfills his promise to rescue his people. God brings his final plague against the Egyptians while passing over the Israelites who are covered by the blood of the Passover Lamb. God then leads Israel out of Egypt by parting the sea Israel is called to remember and celebrate these events which are to shape their identity as God's rescued people.
May 22, 2022
God Delivers - Exodus 5: 1-23 & Exodus 10: 21-29
This week we see God's supremacy as he shows his power over the Egyptians while protecting Israel from the destruction effects of the plagues. In this we also see the grace of God in salvation and the goal of God to see his name honoured in all the earth.
May 18, 2022
God Sends - Exodus 3:1-15 & Exodus 4:1-17
Having heard of the slavery of Israel in Egypt, and being reminded of God's promises to his people, we now begin to see God's salvation plans unfold beginning with the call of Moses. Although God sovereignly rescues, reveals, raises up, and reassures, Moses struggles with reluctance and disbelief. As God has graciously saved us for his service, how can we boldly get on with his mission today?
May 09, 2022
God of Mercy - Exodus 1:1-22
Exodus recounts God's great act of redemption for his people, bringing them from slavery to the promised land. As we begin this book, we see the need for God's redemption and his faithfulness to the people of his promises.
May 01, 2022
The Mission - Matthew 28:16-20
At the end of Mathew's gospel, Jesus gives his final instructions to his followers and to us. He tells us what he wants us to do. Has there ever been a more important question to have answered? Jesus has set out a plan for our lives where we must consider what it means to doubt, and think about some of the other aspects of The Great Commission.
April 25, 2022
The Tomb - Matthew 27:55-66
While we rightly celebrate the momentous events of Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday, what is the significance of Jesus laying in the tomb over three days. What dose that mean for us as we await the final resurrection?
April 10, 2022
Is He Criminal or King? - Matthew 27: 32-55
We see the moment when Jesus' long walk to the cross reaches its end as he is crucified, revealing that Jesus really is king, not in the way we might expect, but in a way that demands a response.
April 04, 2022
The Trial - Matthew 27:1-31
As we continue to watch Jesus on the way to the cross in Matthew's gospel, we are told of the trial before Pontius Pilate, and we see more of the sacrifice that Jesus makes for us.
March 27, 2022
The Arrest - Matthew 26:47-75
Here, we see Jesus continue his walk to the cross. He is betrayed, falsely accused, and abandoned, and he does not fight back or retaliate. Instead he continues on the path where he will lay down his life. As we observe the way of Jesus on his journey to the cross, what can we learn about following his way today?
March 21, 2022
The Garden - Matthew 26:36-46
Christ died for us not because we are worthy, but because we are unworthy, and because there was no other way for us to be made worthy before God.
March 15, 2022
The Passover - Matthew 26:1-35
The death of Jesus hangs over every aspect of the story as some plot to betray and kill him. Some swear their allegiance and one demonstrates her love in costly devotion.
March 07, 2022
Living for Jesus in the end - Matthew 25:14-46

February 28, 2022
Ready - Matthew 25: 1-15
Today, Jesus reminds us that the imminence and totality of the kingdom of heaven requires an urgency and exhaustiveness of preparation.
February 21, 2022
Living in the end times.
We continue to listen to Jesus teach his disciples, and we come to a much-debated passage about the end of the age. These words have been the cause of much speculation and confusion, so how should we understand these things so that we are ready and not alarmed as Jesus intends?
February 13, 2022
Warnings from Jesus.
Jesus has stern warnings about hypocritical leaders, and he dishes out "the woes" on the Scribes and Pharisees in a big way. But as Jesus goes after those who should have known and taught the way of God, is he angry, or is he broken hearted ....or is it both?
February 06, 2022
Who is Jesus - Matthew 22:15-46
Today we listen to the teaching of Jesus as he easily answers questions put to him by the religious leaders to trap him. While we see that Jesus is a far superior teacher, we also hear profound teaching about our life now and the life to come, and we would do well to listen closely.
January 30, 2022
Invitation from Jesus - Matthew 22:1-14
In Matthew 22, Jesus speaks about the invitation for all to come and join in the great celebration of his wedding banquet. His words are a challenge to accept the gracious invitation ourselves as well as to extend the invitation to those around us.

Good news of Immanuel - John 1:1-14

The Hope of The Gospel - Romans 5:1-11

January 02, 2022
The Good News Of The King - Matthew 1:18-2:12

December 19, 2021
People of Purpose - 1 Chronicles 29:1-20
In 1 Chronicles 29, we see how God involves us in his Kingdom purposes. As we see the devotion of Israel in the days when the Temple was built, we are pointed to the confidence and commitment we can have in God;s Kingdom today.
December 13, 2021
People of Promise - 1 Chronicles 17:1-27
Chapter 17 describes the covenant made with David as God promises to build a kingdom which will last forever. Such grace leads to a response of prayer and praise for God's undeserved kindness to his people.
December 07, 2021
A Protest Song - Psalm 22
Hurts in life are many, which can cause us to question God's sovereignty and loving kindness. Psalm 22 not only apparently invites these questions, but helps us process our hurts, and to move through these life's difficulties as we see love, sacrifice, and redemption in God's Son.
November 29, 2021
The Freedom of Confession - Psalm 51 21-11-21
Psalm 51 is a song of David where he confesses his horrible sin against Bathsheba, Uriah, and the whole nation of Israel, and through his confession and genuine repentance finds his freedom and joy restored. What extraordinary grace we experience from God as our sin is forgiven through the blood of Jesus.
November 22, 2021
The Blessed Life - Psalms 1 and 2

November 14, 2021
Psalm 13 7-11-21
Psalm 13 is a lament that helps us to cry out to God in the difficulties of life. Such Psalms are a grace to us as they give us words to express our deepest emotions in the context of faith and the safety of God's love.
November 08, 2021
Psalm 46 - 24-10-21
Psalm 46 points us to where we should look to for strength.
November 04, 2021
Find your treasures in God - Psalm 49
Psalm 49 provides God's wisdom as it reveals to us a hope for the future that even death cannot take away. Though the world would call us to seek joy in earthly treasures, the wisdom that is from God urges us to weigh these things in light of eternity and to take hold of the treasures that will never perish, spoil, or fade.
November 01, 2021
People of Praise - 1 Chronicles 16: 1-36
Chapter 16 in 1 Chronicles describes the event of the Ark of the Covenant arriving in Jerusalem. This is a picture of God choosing to dwell with his people - such grace leads to an outpouring of praise for who God is and what he has done
October 10, 2021
Enduring Praise - Romans 15: 1-13
As Paul draws his guidance on this practical matter in Romans to a close, we are reminded again that the issue of food and sacred days is a symptom of deeper divisions between Jew and Gentile. Paul rejoices that this division has been healed! For Christ endured his reconciling work for both Jew and Gentile, so that together they might endure in re conciliatory praise of God through Christ, our only hope.
October 03, 2021
The Inside Out Kingdom - Romans 14: 13-23
As we move from the weak Christian's judgement of the strong to consider how the strong should conduct themselves in the Kingdom of God, we see that the Gospel really does turn everything inside out. In fact, the inward transformation of Christ's work must be so outwardly expressed that our external freedoms in God's kingdom may need to be kept internally captive to our conscience in Christ.
September 27, 2021
Undivided - Romans 14:1-12
In Romans 14, Paul shows us how and why Christian conscience must be undivided.
September 20, 2021
The word of God continued to flourish. - Acts 12:1-25
In Acts 12 the church encounters difficult days, one apostle is killed and another is imprisoned. Yet the believers respond in dependence on God who continues to be at work. Even in difficult days we can trust the goodness of God as he continues to make his gospel known.
September 15, 2021
The Lord's hand was with them - Acts 11
The good news of what Jesus has done continues to spread! In Acts 11 we see the gospel being embraced by more people, and the start of a new church in Antioch. God's grace is evident among them as they hold fast to Jesus, reach out to others, and display Christlikeness
September 05, 2021
God does not show favoritism - Acts 9:32-10:48
We have seen through Acts the good news of Jesus reaching new people, and this continues in a significant way in today’s passage as Gentiles are included in God’s family receiving the blessings of forgiveness of sins and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. This is a new stage for God’s people, and a reminder to us that God’s plans are for all who will come and find cleansing through the cross of Jesus.
August 29, 2021
This man is my chosen instrument - Acts 9:1-31
This week we see God's amazing grace on display as he takes hold of Saul, changing him from a persecutor of Christians into a proclaimer of Christ to the nations.
August 22, 2021
They preached the word in Samaria - Acts 8:4-25
We continue to see the Gospel message spread to all the nations, despite persecution. Faithful believers are scattered with the Gospel of Jesus. As enmity between man and God is healed, so too are earthly divisions removed. However, we also see that not all who believe are genuine, as they put their faith not in Jesus but power.
August 08, 2021
The Perfection of Love - Song of Songs 6:11-8:14
We come to the final section in Song of Songs. The love between the young couple is more evident than ever before, but will their love be supported or scorned? Again we are reminded of the ups and downs of love in this world and ultimately we're pointed to God's great love for us - as strong as death, like a mighty flame.
August 02, 2021
The Pleasure and Pain of Love - Song of Songs 2:8-6:10
We continue listening to the Song of Songs and we see that love in this world can often be a bumpy ride. The lovers in the story long to be together but they face threats to their relationship and circumstances that show us both the pleasures and pain of love.
July 25, 2021
The Gift of Love - Song of Songs 1:1-2:7
Found in the middle of our Bibles is this beautiful poetic writing about love in all its intensity and passion. It is aptly named the Song of Songs, and this is a song we need to hear so that we will understand better the good gift of love that God has given to us.
July 19, 2021
Stephen, full of God's grace and power - Acts 6:8-8:1
This is another pivotal moment for the early church as we are told of the first Christian Martyr. Stephen speaks boldly about how we can know the true and living God through Jesus, and while those who opposed Stephen sought to stop his message, the result of his death was the gospel beginning to be scattered to the nations.
July 12, 2021
So the word of God spread - Acts 6:1-7
As the church multiplies, we see Satan attack the church as they struggle with internal conflict, distracting those whose primary call is to word ministry. We see however, that order is restored from Satan's chaos as faithful men are chosen to do the work of ministry among the church, allowing the Gospel to be proclaimed and lives continue to be changed.
July 04, 2021
Counted worthy of suffering - Acts 5:17-42
Again we see that the apostles are arrested, and again warned to stay silent about Jesus. But despite threats and punishment the apostles continue to speak boldly about Jesus. Their boldness is a great encouragement and challenge to us as they not only endured but rejoiced at being counted worthy to suffer disgrace for the name of Jesus.
June 27, 2021
The Awesome Presence of God - Acts 5:1-16
In this reading today, we see the first episode of sin and deceit within the early Christian community. How will this impact the community? What will God do about it? We will see a warning as God still takes sin very seriously as well as an encouragement as he is able to overcome sin.
June 21, 2021
God's grace was at work among them - Acts 4:23-37
The early church had, through great threats of persecution, even greater gifts of God's grace at their disposal. They had been given direct access to their Lord through prayer and great power to preach the gospel. They were able to use their own possessions in service to God's Kingdom.
June 13, 2021
Salvation in the name of Jesus - Acts 4:1-22
The church of Christ, which is only a few weeks old, will begin to suffer great persecution as allegiance to Christ leaves no room for any other belief system. With great boldness, Peter and John proclaim Jesus as the only name by which we can be saved.
June 06, 2021
Faith in the name of Jesus - Acts 3:1 to 4:4
We see an incredible act of God's power in the healing of a crippled beggar, and not just in his body, but for his soul too. This brings an amazed crowd to hear Peter's explanations, followed by the gospel and calling sinners to repentance.. There is a great hope for all who turn to Jesus in repentance and faith.
May 31, 2021
All the believers were together - Acts 2:41-47
The church in Jerusalem experienced great numerical growth in response to Peter's sermon, and in today's passage we see how they also grew into a community that was committed to the gospel and to one another, and they enjoyed the blessings belonging to the saviour.
May 24, 2021
Repent and be baptised - Acts 2:14-40
The strange events which accompanied the giving of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost caused many to be "amazed and perplexed". This leads to Peter explaining what was going on in the very first Christian sermon, and in it we'll hear the good news of salvation in Christ and the need to respond in repentance and faith.
May 17, 2021
They were filled with the Holy Spirit - Acts 2:1-13
No longer is God's presence limited to the Temple or a few leaders, rather, God's presence now dwells in all believers.
May 09, 2021
You Will Be My Witnesses - Acts 1:12-26
The 11 disciples must again become 12 as they replace the one who betrayed Jesus. To do this they rely on prayer, the scriptures and God's own leading as they continue to trust Him as he builds His church.
May 03, 2021
TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH - Acts 1: 1-11
God has a big mission and vision to see the saving message of Jesus reach to the ends of the earth, a mission that we are called to be part of today.
April 25, 2021
The Great Banquet - Esther 9-10
Concluding our series on Esther we see that no matter how bad it gets, Christians have the good news of the gospel of Jesus, and God is already victorious! He has defeated his enemies and a day will come when all people will bow the knee before Jesus. Because of God's victory there will be a great celebration for God's people, delivered, rescued, redeemed, and rewarded.
April 20, 2021
The Great Reversal - Esther 7-8
Esther 7-8 demonstrates how our God is the God of reversals. At the darkest hour he is capable of redeeming his people, and has done so in Jesus Christ.
April 12, 2021
The Great Exalter - Esther 5-6
In Esther 5-6, we see the hidden hand of God most clearly revealed and above the powers of the world. No amount of human wisdom can surpass God's sovereign rule. What people meant for evil, God will turn it for our good.
March 28, 2021
The Great Mediator - Esther 3-4
Threats to God's people from earthly powers and supernatural evil have been rife in history. God is not deaf, nor inactive against such threats and cries of his people, and has provided a great mediator to save us.
March 21, 2021
The Great Influencer - Esther 1-2
In the Old Testament book of Esther, God is not mentioned. His underpinning work of salvation is everywhere. This gives us hope for our age where anti-Christian forces seem more powerful than ever, so that we may wonder, where is God?
March 19, 2021
Entering The Kingdom - Matthew 21:23-46
Jesus is challenged by the religious leaders who refuse to believe in the basis of his authority. In response Jesus shares two parables that should leave no one with any doubt of who he is and what he has come to do
March 10, 2021
The King of the Kingdom Matthew 21:1-22
Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem followed by his cleansing of the Temple and then a bit of strange run-in with a fig tree. In all of this we see Jesus being revealed as God's long-promised King, a King who comes humbly and who will bring about a great salvation as he establishes a new covenant at the cross.
February 28, 2021
Salvation in the Kingdom - Matthew 20:17-34
Jesus speaks about the true way of discipleship, and he invites us to follow his example of sacrificial service to others.
February 21, 2021
Grace in the Kingdom - Matthew 20:1-19
The incredible grace of God is seen in our passage today as God freely give to those he has called.
February 16, 2021
First in the Kingdom - Matthew 19:16-30
As we come to the story of the rich young man, we see that salvation is a work of God’s divine mercy in our lives, and not based on what we do or what we ourselves possess. Rather, we are called to surrender all for the greater possession of having Jesus Christ as our great treasure.
February 07, 2021
Pharisees & Children in the Kingdom - Matthew 19:1-15
As we continue to listen to Jesus’ teaching about life in his Kingdom in response to the Pharisees seeking to test him Jesus speaks about marriage, divorce, and singleness. Jesus highlights God’s original purposes for our relationships, and we are challenged to emulate little children in approaching and listening to Jesus’ words
January 31, 2021
Forgiveness in the Kingdom - Matthew 18:15-35
Jesus continues his teaching about life in his Kingdom as he speaks about the centrality of forgiveness. Here is another example of a concept that is increasingly foreign to the world’s way of thinking, but central to the kingdom that Jesus has brought near. We consider not only the importance of forgiveness for those who are members of Jesus’ kingdom, but also what it is that enables us to forgive when wrongs are committed against us.
January 24, 2021
Greatness in the Kingdom - Matthew 18:1-14
This week we resume a series in Matthew’s gospel, and we pick it up in Matthew 18 as Jesus speaks about greatness and what that looks like in His Kingdom. His words are a challenge to us about how we view status and greatness, and a call to an attitude of humility toward one another as we recognise that we are all ‘little ones’ welcomed by a gracious and merciful God.
January 18, 2021
Nehemiah 10-12 - Celebrating
Today we see the commitments of God's people as they return to live in the city and commit to following God’s law, ending with a great celebration around the wall. All of this leads us to see God’s faithfulness to keep his promises and causes our eyes to look further to see his promises fulfilled through Jesus. We can commit to God because he first commits to us.
January 14, 2021
Nehemiah 9 - Responding
As we continue in Nehemiah, ch 9 is a great summary of Israel's history teaching us that in order to see ourselves clearly we need to look closely at God.
December 29, 2020
Nehemiah 8 - The Lord's Joy, and ours
With the walls of Jerusalem completed it's time to celebrate, but the celebration of this chapter is not about the physical restoration it's all about the joy that is found in God's word. Because the joy of the Lord is to act with grace and compassion, we can be filled with joy in any and every circumstance.
December 20, 2020
Nehemiah 6-7 - Standing Firm
How will you face opposition in the Christian life? Many a time throughout the New Testament we are called to persevere in the face of strong opposition, whether it be through clear and apparent resistance and attack, or through the more insidious means of Satan and sin. In Nehemiah, we see perseverance in action as he stands firms, with God’s help, through the trials of opposition before him. We will see that with God’s help, those who persevere till the end will be saved!
December 14, 2020
Nehemiah 5 - Walking in the fear of God
We see in Nehemiah that great progress has been made rebuilding the walls of the city, but what progress has taken place in the hearts of the people? Instead of obedience to God’s law, there is greed and injustice among some of the people. As Nehemiah calls them to respond to God’s word it’s an opportunity for us to consider what God desires most from his people.
December 09, 2020
Nehemiah 4 - Facing Opposition
As we continue in our series in Nehemiah we see how God’s kingdom advances against opposition. As we seek to serve God today we should be aware of the biblical expectation of opposition and persecution, and amid that we can find strength in knowing that God is with us and will ultimately be victorious as he builds his church through the proclamation of the good news about Jesus.
November 29, 2020
Nehemiah 3 - God's Fellow Workers
After the people of God said they would get to work on rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem, that’s what they did, they united together in the work of God’s kingdom. Today we have the great privilege of being called God’s fellow workers, he has saved us and it’s our joy to serve him in his kingdom work today.
November 22, 2020
Nehemiah 2 - Acting on God's Word
Last week we were given a special insight into the prayer life of Nehemiah, and a great example for us to follow. He prayed God’s Word and trusted in His promises. Today we see that Nehemiah’s long planning to build the wall is seasoned with prayer and trust in God’s mighty hand. What God has said, he will do!
November 15, 2020
Nehemiah 1 - Praying God's Promises
Nehemiah is well known for his leadership in building a wall against various opposition. We will see, however, that Nehemiah’s deeper concern was not a wall, but worship! In chapter 1, Nehemiah’s distress for his people is displayed in his deep commitment to God through prayer, a prayer of confession and repentance and a reliance on the promises of God found in his word.
November 08, 2020
Loving the world - 1 Peter 2:9-12
Today we conclude our short series in 1 Peter considering God’s vision for his church. As God has given us new birth through the gospel, we are now God’s representatives in the world. This is a great privilege as God calls us his royal priesthood who now declare his praises to a watching world.
November 01, 2020
Loving one another - 1 Peter 1:17-25
We continue our short series in 1 Peter considering God’s vision for his church. As God has given us new birth through the gospel, we are born into a new community marked by love. Today we consider how this reality plays out among us at St Aidan’s.
October 27, 2020
Loving God - 1 Peter 1:3-12
We begin a short series considering God’s vision for his church. 1 Peter is written to believers calling them to live out their faith as God’s new people in the world, we are now to live for His praise, glory and honour as we treasure Christ and look forward to our certain heavenly inheritance.
October 19, 2020
Remember - Hebrews 13:7-25
As we come to the end of Hebrews, the author gives a final word to encourage the Hebrew Christians to endure in their faith as they remember the faith of their leaders and remember their saviour, even unto death, as we offer a sacrifice of praise through the only one who can make our sacrifice acceptable: Jesus!
October 13, 2020
Love, Marriage, and Money - Hebrews 13:1-6
As we come to the final chapter of Hebrews, we are shown what it practically looks like to live in a way that worships God and is pleasing to him. Three ways we express our love for God is by loving others in the church, avoiding sexual immorality, and keeping ourselves from the love of money.
October 04, 2020
Between two mountains - Hebrews 12:14-29
The salvation we have received in Christ brings us to God, we have come to the new church of that God is creating that will remain forever.
September 28, 2020
Perseverance & Discipline - Hebrews 12:1-13
What does the life of faith look like with our eyes fixed on Jesus? As we walk with our saviour he calls us to faithful endurance.
September 22, 2020
Difficult Faith - Hebrews 11:23-40
Like God’s people in the Old Testament who went before us, we are called to live by faith in a world where we will endure rejection, suffering, and difficult circumstances. Unlike them, we have seen God’s promises of salvation fulfilled in Christ and can look to him for hope and perseverance.
September 08, 2020
Future-Looking Faith - Hebrews 11:8-22
None of us knows the future, but we do know the promises of God and His character. Like the Old teTestamentstament examples of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph we are called to live and act by faith as we look forward to heaven trusting the faithful God who through Christ fulfils his promises.
August 30, 2020
Tracking Faith - Hebrews 11:1-7
The well-known figures in the Old-Testament were saved in the very same way we are: by faith in God. New Covenant believers receive salvation by faith in the same way, and therefore, should emulate those who came before us.
August 25, 2020
Faithful Endurance - Hebrews 10:26-39
Obedience, endurance and faithful living are crucial for the Christian who places their faith in Christ. Through trials and persecution and temptation, our confidence must be in the saving work of Jesus, whose promise of return fills us with great hope so that we might strive to be obedient, endure and remain faithful to the end.
August 18, 2020
The Sufficient blood of Jesus - Hebrews 10:1-25
Hebrews' great statement on the priesthood of Christ concludes by focusing on how the sacrifice of Christ makes us Holy. Having received this new status as a gift, we are urged to draw near to the God who has served us and to give ourselves in service to one another.
August 11, 2020
The Superior Blood of Jesus - Hebrews 9:1-28
How can we come near to God? How can we be cleansed from our sin? How can we have security for eternity? There is much that is uncertain in our world, but in Hebrews chapter 9 we are told of the certain hope that we have through the sacrifice that Jesus made for us which has obtained eternal redemption.
August 02, 2020
God's Superior Promise - Hebrews 8:1-13
As we return to our series in Hebrews, we look in chapter 8 at the difference between the Old and New Covenants. The human priesthood anticipates the priesthood of Jesus, who serves in heaven! The New Covenant is superior and will reveal to us the grace and forgiveness of God in Jesus Christ.
July 24, 2020
Submit to Above- Romans 13:11-14
Last week Paul reminded us that the Old Covenant has been fulfilled in Christ and we fulfil it in our loving submission to one another....
