1 Timothy 4:1-16
Acts 15:10-18 from THE MESSAGE
At the heart of the Old Testament the people of God experienced a huge reset. Having been unplugged from their life and mission (the exile), God set about rebooting them for a new season. The promise was that the future would be greater than the past. So what did God teach them and what can we learn as we too have found ourselves unplugged and facing a reset of our own.View Series
Daniel Fast 2021 - Surviving to thriving
We have been in a season that has been unexpected and difficult. In moments like this it can feel like all that life has been shaken. But despite all that has happened the truth is that God is still God and we can find peace in that.
This year during the Daniel fast we are examining what it looks like to move from surviving this season to thriving. Each day we will start with a morning thought from Galatians to start our day and then we will journey through Psalms to help us with our own journey and then look at how Daniel moved to thriving.View Series
The book of Philippians is arguably the most joy-filled, joy-commanded book of the Bible. All the more strange when we discover that Paul is writing in a lockdown of his own. Imprisoned in Rome, possibly awaiting execution, his joy abounds. How come?View Series
Over the Summer during our Sunday Celebrations we are going to be thinking about the treasures we have found through the recent challenging season of COVID-19. Despite it being one of the most challenging seasons many of us have faced, God has been very present and has given us treasures to find in secret places. We will be exploring subjects such as God being with us, slowing down and what our communities have been doing during lockdown.View Series
The gospels are full of people encountering Jesus. Many heard him speak and saw the miracles, yet those who went close enough were touched, and transformed by his presence. For each one, a life changing encounter with Jesus.
This series is our invitation into that same encounter.
The Cracking Communication course has given birth to “Ted Talk” Sunday when three people will share for just 7 minutes each on the same passage. It is an opportunity for more people to develop their skills, but more than that, it is a way that we can all benefit from the richness of God’s word within each of us.View Series

The Daniel Fast is a method of fasting used by hundreds of thousands of Christians throughout the world. The fast is based on the fasting experiences of the prophet Daniel along with standard Jewish fasting principles.
The Daniel Fast is a partial fast, meaning that some foods are eaten and others are restricted. Please only consider this style of fasting if you are medically well enough too or disordered eating is not an internal challenge for you.View Series
An outlier is someone different from the others, stands out from the crowd and makes a big contribution to the world. eg Bill Gates or Mother Theresa.
As Christians we can feel like outsiders. We don’t fit. Actually, we DON’T fit. We ARE different and that’s a GOOD thing.
When Peter wrote his letter 1 Peter the Christians were being heavily persecuted. They felt like outsiders. They were outsiders But so much more they were outliers. Different? Yes! But with a big difference to make.View Series
