The Story
Jul 2017 - Nov 2017

his Sunday we commence a new series in the life of our church that looks at the story of a true God and His unfolding plan in this world. Beginning with life, as we know it, The Story reveals to us a God who speaks, a God who acts, a God who listens and a God whose love for this world culminated in Him sending His one and only Son to save humanity from their sins.

What’s so exciting about this story is that it is not history; God is still alive and active in our world today. He still speaks, He still acts, He still listens and He is still demonstrating His love to all of humanity today. He’s the same God who rescued a nation from captivity and He’s the same God who graciously forgave the failings of a king. Over the coming weeks we will discover how our own stories intersect with God’s big story and plan of redemption for this world. It’s our hope and prayer that the stories we look at will encourage you to see things through God’s eyes knowing that He is helping shape your own story in this world.

BLESS
May 2017 - Jun 2017

God’s strategy, since the beginning of history, was to have his people bless the world. What does that look like in practice? How can we encourage one another to be a blessing to those around us without adding undue guilt or unrealistic demands? Over the next five weeks, we are going to look at a simple model that empowers us to live out our faith in authentic ways. It is about being good news and sharing good news with people, and restoring our neighbourhoods back to God’s dream for them. The invitation and the strategy is called BLESS. It’s a strategy that involves us praying for people, listening to them, sharing meals together, blessing others through service and learning to have conversations where we share with others what God has done and still continues to do in each of our lives today.

Extravagant Joy
Apr 2017 - May 2017

Life is often quite demanding and it has a way of pushing and pulling us in different directions. Joy for living is something that we all want but at times, it can be incredibly elusive. From time to time we meet people who seem to ooze unspeakable joy. How can we tap into that kind of joy – the kind that makes our journey as followers of Jesus contagious even in the midst of a crisis? Is it really possible? A little book written to a group of young believers in the city of Philippi would suggest that it is. From start to finish, this letter reminds us as readers about how we might embrace and experience extravagant joy in every season of life.

Generous
Mar 2017

The whole of scripture tells a story about a God who has generously poured out his love on each of us. It began in the creation story in the Book of Genesis as God formed man from the dust of the ground, as He put him into His own incredible garden with an abundance of good food to eat and then as He provided him with a close companion called woman. Even when the man and woman turned their backs on Him, God in His grace continued to keep reaching out and providing a way for humanity to remain in close relationship with Him, as evidenced through the continuing story in scripture. His generosity towards each of us is witnessed once again in the sending of His One and only Son, not to condemn us but to save the world through Him. Jesus was the embodiment of God’s gracious generosity and today it demands a response from us. Join us in our new series as we investigate how we might live out and reciprocate His generosity in the area of our time, tithe and even in the use of our talents.

Who are you? Discovering your identity in Christ.
Feb 2017 - Mar 2017

Our sense of self-worth is often shaped by the identities that our world/culture want to give us. For example, the world/culture says we are valuable because we are married, or we have a job, or we own a house, or we have finished university or a post-graduate degree, or we are popular, or we are beautiful. While none of these things is wrong, our sense of self-worth should never be found in what we DO but in WHO we are in Christ. In other words, what we DO is not WHO we are. Our identity is received, not achieved. 

And what we dwell on has the capacity to shape what we believe to be true about our lives (Proverbs 23:7 NKJV). With this in mind, we want to start our year as followers of Jesus Christ focussing on our true identity, In the end, it's because of WHOM we are that we DO what we do.

prioritywords
Each of us has different things in our lives that we are willing to prioritize. As we start the New Year, some of us will make health and fitness an absolute priority. Others of us will prioritize the importance of family and endeavour to bring some balance back into our busy lives, and others of us will focus on our spiritual growth as a follower of Jesus and make this a matter of great importance or priority. What will you prioritize as you move into 2017? 

Christmas through Heaven's eyes
Dec 2016

The lead up to Christmas always provides us with a great opportunity to take a fresh look at the events surrounding the birth of Christ from a variety of different viewpoints. Over the years we’ve looked at the Biblical account through the eyes of Joseph, Mary, the shepherd, an innkeeper as well as some wise men from afar. We’ve looked at the Christmas story from all of these different perspectives, but this year we’re going to peel back the curtains from heaven and endeavour to see the story this year through their eyes.
