Love One Another

December 13, 2017

Delle Matthews, self-proclaimed grumpy old woman, tears apart the commercialisation of Christmas, and looks deeper into the meaning of Christmas. Our society is trying to reclaim the "true meaning of Christmas" to be to love one another, to be kind, and to give some meaningful presents. A season of love sure sounds great doesn't it? But what is love? Where does it come from? The message of Christmas being a season of love is close to the truth, but misses a critical element, twisting the truth in subtle ways.


Children of God

December 5, 2017

Tim continues our Walk in the Light series. Advent is a time of remembering the first coming of Jesus, and looking forward to the second coming, still to come. You can tell a lot from a snapshot of a single point in time, like an old family photograph. Who we are is shaped by whose we are; our identity is closely tied to our parents. John speaks of Christians as being children of God, and so as Christians, we should find our identity in that relationship.


I am… The Vine

June 15, 2017

The finale of our I AM series, Delle Matthews concludes with Jesus referring to himself as "the vine", and his followers as "the branches". How do we remain in Jesus, and attached to the vine? 


The Heart of Life - Introducing Leviticus

February 13, 2017

This is the first in our new series called 'The Heart of Life', where we think about how we can put God at the centre of our lives in practical ways. We will be looking at the book of Leviticus, a strange and difficult book of the Old Testament, which is probably the least favourite book of the Bible for many Christians. But it contains many images and concepts that make sense of the coming of Jesus. Kirk Mackenzie starts off the series by looking at Hebrews 8, where the 'shadow' of Jesus in the Old Testament is discussed.
