Chain Reaction - Act Now!

Chain Reaction - Act Now!

May 11, 2021

We return to our series ACT NOW! going through the book of Acts and asking how the story of the early church might impact our experiences today. This week Jamie looks through the story of Stephen, who famously fell foul of the religious authorities and paid the ultimate price. Stephen challenged the way that they had become over-reliant on systems, institutions and customs... 'the way we've always done things!' It's a trap we need to be careful of too...

Ruth’s Story - Storytelling through Ruth

Ruth’s Story - Storytelling through Ruth

May 4, 2021

In the final week of this series, Nick begins by highlighting Ruth's bravery in embracing the unknown. We look at how the seemingly small story of Ruth feeds into God's big narrative, and how we expand our own stories when we take part in other people's. Finally, we reflect on how even the small ways people make a difference can contribute to furthering God's Kingdom!

Naomi’s Story - Storytelling through Ruth

April 26, 2021

This week, Hannah delves into Naomi’s story, examining the rises and falls in her journey. We peel back the layers contributing to her desire to change her name to Mara: ‘bitter’, and explore how understanding a person’s context might soften our hearts, promote empathy and allow us to journey well alongside others.

Setting the Scene - Storytelling through Ruth

Setting the Scene - Storytelling through Ruth

April 19, 2021

In this introduction to this mini-series, Nick considers how the time the Book of Ruth was written, as opposed to when the story itself took place, can shift our perspective on how we read it. We also consider the impact of being vulnerable with those we see as our enemies, and about how women drive the narrative of this wonderful story.

Before We Hurry Away

Before We Hurry Away

April 12, 2021

Continuing our Easter reflections Jamie takes another look at the cross. The humiliation and shame of this form of execution reveals the heart of God and expresses his great empathy and unfathomable grace towards us in the midst of our human frailty.

Easter and Resurrection - Easter Sunday

Easter and Resurrection - Easter Sunday

April 6, 2021

'What do Easter and resurrection mean to you?'

With this theme coursing through our Easter Sunday service, Nick encourages us to really consider how the story of the resurrection was not just a one-time event. The epic, earth-shattering event of Jesus rising again reminds us that resurrection can and does take place all around us today... if only we can recognise and respond to it!

Gathering - Lent: Spiritual Practices

Gathering - Lent: Spiritual Practices

March 29, 2021

This week Jamie asks how we can use the act of gathering together as a spiritual practice in itself. Being part of a church can be challenging at times, and some may question the need or value; but - perhaps with a bit of mental reframing - the communal nature of many aspects of our gatherings may be powerful tools in shaping us as disciples.

In this week's message, Jess shares about the heart of all spiritual practice: the quest for intimacy with God. Throughout Scripture God reveals his desire for intimacy with us, and invites us to draw near to Him. Jess explores how we can respond by desiring, pursuing and prioritising intimacy.

The Sacred Journey - Lent: Spiritual Practices

March 8, 2021

In this week's message in our Lent series, Jamie explores the idea of the 'sacred journey': both as a literal pilgrimage, and in more metaphorical ways as we seek to 'follow Jesus' and enrich our discipleship.
