Unashamed – Talk Two (18 February 2018)

By | Teaching, Unashamed

In this session Grant explores how as Christians we should talk naturally about our faith to unbelievers, that can open up conversations about Christ. Matt and Dan then give helpful advice about who to speak to, what to look out for and how to better understand the person asking questions about Christinanity , in order to share the gospel in the most effective way.

Unashamed – Talk One (28 January 2018)

By | Teaching, Unashamed

From a dark and damp Roman prison cell, chained like a criminal, Paul wrote his second letter to his son in the faith, Timothy. He told him to not be ashamed of the gospel, nor to be feel ashamed of him. Inspired by this passage of scripture, and the call for us all to boldly proclaim Christ, this talk is the first in a new series called ‘Unashamed’, where we look to strengthen our witness of Jesus Christ to the world around us. The talks will also be practical and empowering through the use of apologetics to equip every believer to defend the Christian faith, and to live for Christ in a way that is totally unashamed.

By | Conversations, Teaching

In April 2017, Grant had the opportunity of ministering into a church in Vishkhapatanum, India. The church (Christ Ministries) meets on top of a three story building in the middle of a slum area, with extreme poverty. This conversation was in Swansea where Grant spoke to Michael and Ladha about their church plant, and reminds us that God loves all nations.

Carry each others burdens (17th September 2017)

By | One Anothering, Teaching

Galatians 6:2. Jesus called out to the weary and heavy-laden, and invited them to Him to take away their burdens. He still does! Yet there is a mystery in that the church is described as being the Body of Christ. Therefore it would make sense that we too can also help carry each other’s burdens, just as Christ does. This kind of love and care for one another goes deeper than a simple ‘How are you? I’m fine’, and means we are called to share and carry the toughest parts of our lives together as we follow Christ together.

Not envying and provoking one another (3rd September 2017)

By | One Anothering, Teaching

Galatians 5:26. That feeling you can get when you hear your friend has received a promotion and pay rise at work. That time when your colleague was given a parking spot at work ahead of you. That moment when you saw your neighbours extended family go round for Sunday dinner, and your own family live on a different continent. What is that? Envy. It ‘rots the bones’ (Proverbs 14:30). It should have no place in our lives or how we treat one another.

Living in peace with one another (30 July 2017)

By | One Anothering, Teaching

Living in peace with one another. Matthew 18:15-17. Conflict is a part of life. It usually arises when we have expectations that aren’t met. But how we handle conflict is what really matters. If handled well, there can be a hugely positive outcome that can strengthen the relationship. If handled poorly, the results can be devastating. In this talk we look at how we are handle conflict within the church, so that we can live in peace with one another, and reflect the nature of God who resolved the greatest conflict of all time when we made peace with us by His blood shed on the cross.

One Anothering – Together (12 February 2017)

By | One Anothering, Uncategorised

Jesus told his disciples that people would know they were his disciples by their love for one another. The Bible has many other ‘one anothers’ as well, describing the way Christian brothers and sisters should treat each another. In this opening teaching of the series ‘One Anothering’, we look at the importance of firstly being devoted to one another in fellowship.

The King and I: Loved – John 3:16 (06 November 2016)

By | The King and I

John 3:16

Part of discovering our identity in Christ is understanding that we are deeply loved by God! When we are in Christ nothing – not even sin and death which once separated us from God – can separate us from His great love. To grasp and experience this love is life transforming, and firmly seals our identity as loved children of God.
