Raise a Hallelujah (Learning the power of praise) - Dom Bird
In this message, Pastor Dom speaks into the whole area of praise and why it’s so essential to the life of the local church and the life of a believer. Raising a Hallelujah goes way beyond responding to a feeling, it is a decision that you make in both the good times and the bad because not only is God worthy of it regardless but because praise often precedes victory. In this message, Dom explores the Hebrew understanding of praise and how it postures us for a life of blessing, breakthrough and impact.

How to grow up (Dom Bird
In this message Pastor Dom speaks into the area of maturing in your faith. Too many believers remain as spiritual infants when God’s desire for them is to grow up into being spiritual giants. Maturity is less to do with how ‘serious’ or ‘sensible’ you are and it’s more to do with how secure you are. Knowing who you are in Christ is essential to you advancing in your Christian faith. This message offers 4 insights that will help you grow up and move from where you are.

All good things...(Dom Bird)
In this message, Sunnyhill's Lead Pastor, Dom Bird talks about beginnings looking at the account of Zerubbabel and the re-building of the temple.  We often hear the old adage: "all good things must come to an end". Whilst in some cases that is true, there are some things that don't. There is in fact another way of looking at this: "all good things must come to a beginning". Every great thing we see whether it be a marriage, a career, a church or anything else, at some point has a point of conception and we must learn to see beginnings the way God does. For further information about this idea check out this article.

The Blessed Life - In the inbetween
So often we see life as a journey between point A and Point B, the place we’re leaving and the place we’re heading. Our ideal is to move from A to B as fast as possible but God’s ideal isn’t always the same. In this message Pastor Dom speaks about living in the in-between, the place between A and B and how God uses process which some times looks like difficulty and hardship for our growth and maturity. Nothing is wasted.

The Blessed Life - Too Blessed (Dom Bird)
In this day and age more and more people are suffering with worry and anxiety - research shows this. Either life is getting more stress inducing or as people we’re getting worse at handling it. Even the church is filled with people who worry first and pray second. The problem is that worry stops us living the blessed life. In this message Pastor Dom shows us how Jesus, Paul and Peter teach us that worry is a choice and how we are to cultivate a worry free life. ‘You are too blessed to be stressed!’

The Blessed life - Where's your head at? (Loo Bird)

Type A Faith - The Activity of Faith - Whatever it takes (Dom Bird)
In the message Pastor Dom talks about how faith has to be outworked through activity. We don’t work to get saved we work because we are saved. In our work and efforts what limits are we willing to go to to help people encounter Jesus. ‘Whatever it takes’ is a mentality that faith demands of us.

Type A Faith - The Application of Faith (Dom Bird)
In this message, Pastor Dom talks about overcoming the victim mentality. In John 5 Jesus challenged someone who considered themselves a victim by asking them ‘do you want to be made well?’ The first step to overcoming our victim mindset is having the desire to be made well. We can’t stay where we are, we need to leave the comfort of our dysfunction in order to get up and walk in all that God has for us. This is what it means to apply faith - to believe that we have already received the breakthrough we’re looking for. We are not conquered, we are more than conquerors! We are not victims, we are victors! We are not overcome, we are overcomers!

Type A Faith - The Attitude of Faith (Phil Coleman)
In this second message of our 'Type A Faith' series, Discipleship Pastor Phil Coleman encourages us to have an attitude of faith. Calling out in others and in ourselves the good that we can see in faith rather than simply describing or addressing current failings.
43:24
March 21, 2019
Type A Faith - The Accent of Faith (Dom Bird)
In this message (Pastor) Dom kicks off our ‘Type A Faith’ series by speaking about the importance of developing the accent of faith in our lives. Christians should have an accent that is different to the world, an accent that is faith filled, hope centred and life giving. Our words carry a creative power and as we speak we create a pathway for our minds and lives to follow. It’s time to stop speaking death and start speaking life over ourselves and each other.

Smashing it...in your finances -Part 1 (Dom Bird)
In this message, Lead Pastor Dom Bird talks about breaking the ‘poverty mindset’ that so easily keeps us living by fear rather than faith, that keeps us championing greed rather than generosity. God wants to pour blessing into our lives so that we can pour blessing into the lives of others but if he can’t get it through us, he won’t bring it to us. Dom gives us two principles that empower us to walk with a ‘blessed mindset.’
