I Have a Plan…

December 22, 2020

The incarnate birth of Jesus can sometimes be viewed as God's 'Plan B' due to humankind messing up! Sylvia challenges this notion, highlighting that Jesus' birth had always been part of God's purpose for this world; Jesus is actually the complete expression of God's perfect love for us all!

Mary's part in the Christmas story can often be overlooked...but her song 'The Magnificat' has a deep richness to it that we can easily miss out on in this season. Nick encourages us to look beyond the nativity, and to recognise the powerful ways in which Mary expresses the heart of God.

Hope is Where the Heart is

Hope is Where the Heart is

December 10, 2020

This week Alister shared about the theme of hope, quickly distinguishing between our every day 'pot-luck' hope and the 'Holy Hope' that God calls us to live by. Centring around the verse in Hebrews; 'We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure', Alister challenges us to speak this kind of hope into situations to bring about transformation.

In the final message from our 1st series in Acts, Nick uses the arithmetic operations of division, subtraction, addition and multiplication to journey through this passage. He highlights how we can learn from the mistakes the early church make in this story, and even more importantly, learn from the wonderful way in which they redeem their faults by expressing a radical form of solidarity!

As we arrive at chapter 5 of Acts, we discover the strange and unsettling story of Ananias and Sapphira. Jamie suggests their unfortunate demise warns us of two threats to the Church that must continue to be guarded against: Insincerity and damaging the 'spirit' of the community of faith.

Act Now! 09: The Three Rs: Reflect, Reject, Resurrect

November 9, 2020

On Remembrance Sunday Nick considers a passage that begins with the early church reflecting on what God had done for them, and calling on him to do more. These disciples then say no to greed and consumerism and share all that they have. What things of the world do we need to reject, and how can the resurrection story compel us to live radical Jesus filled lives?

Chapter 4 of Acts begins with the Apostles attracting the disapproval of the Temple authorities. Jamie reflects on what this passage may reveal to us about power in general, and also considers how it might help us to be discerning; Because, as has often been said, 'the proof of the pudding is in the eating!'

In our first talk back in the building, Nick highlights how the story of Peter healing the beggar encourages him to enter into worship with God. In light of this, we are challenged to consider how, through the work of the Holy Spirit and in Jesus' name, we can enable those on the edges of our community to enter in.
