The Thirty-Five – Mark’s Gospel (24 March 2019)

By | Teaching, The Message

Anyone who has been following Christ for a while will know the disappointment of being unable to help people in desperate situations. What is the cause? How can we see change? How do we find ourselves as followers who increasingly possess the compassion, wisdom and power of Jesus Christ. Text: Mark 9:14-32

During this talk Robin references two previous talks in the series:

The Thirty-Four – Mark’s Gospel (20 January 2019)

By | Band of Brothers, Teaching, The Message | No Comments

The Bible, history and The Hill Church is committed to presenting an extraordinary God that loves and equips ordinary people. Peter, James and John, Moses and Elijah were all ordinary people just like us. Peter recorded a remarkable encounter with Jesus Christ. Two things become clear through this encounter. Firstly, that Jesus Christ is who the Bible says He is. Secondly, that even when we are spiritually at our lowest and darkest, God invites us to dwell with Him at his highest and brightest.
Text: Mark 9:2-13

Starting Point

By | Blog

Have you been a Christian a while but feel like you could grow more in your faith or have a refresher? Have you ‘moved into’ the Hill and want to know more about us, what we believe, where we’re headed and what part you can play in it all? 

 If the answer to any of these is ‘ Yes!’ then you are invited to come along to Starting Point! 

 Starting Point is an 8 week foundations course, where you can learn more about the vision and values of the Hill church, as well as receive practical teaching to help you become a stronger disciple of Jesus Christ, and prepare you for more of the exciting journey of faith!

Each evening will begin with a simple meal of soup and rolls to satisfy any hunger, as well as an opportunity to simply eat together and get to know one another better. This will be followed by a different teaching each week by leaders in the Hill Church, followed by a time to talk about the material and ask any questions!

The Thirty-Three – Mark’s Gospel (13 January 2019)

By | Teaching, The Message

The Bible plainly speaks about many topics that are not popular in the age we live and, if we are honest, are not always popular with our own hearts. How do we embrace the internal struggle that goes on when we read something that causes us to react against it? This is not a new problem and we see some answers in the book of Mark and in the lives of those who have gone before us.

BONES “The God of the curve” (6 January 2019)

By | Bones

As we begin a new year it is good to ask ourselves, who is the God we are looking for and how do we increase the chances of spotting Him at work?
Texts: Luke 5:1-3; Proverbs 16:9; Romans 8:28; Philippians 1:6; Matthew 25:44; 2 Timothy 2:1-7; Romans 12:1-2

BONES “Be like Phoebe”(28 October 2018)

By | Bones, Teaching

What sort of person would you entrust to hand deliver a very precious document? What would be the characteristics that you would look for? Phoebe was a person entrusted with the safe delivery of the letter to the Romans. Her faithfulness, reliability, willingness and availability were used by God in a hidden way, but also in a significant way. She had a reputation amongst the believers as someone who would help and serve whenever, whatever and for whoever it was necessary. Phoebe is an excellent example of someone regarded as a deacon in the local church. We can aspire to be like her. Text: Romans 16:1-2

BONES “Put what remains into order and appoint Elders” (7 October 2018)

By | Bones, Teaching

The church is God’s initiative not a human invention. Similarly, the public appointment of Elders in the church to lead is also God’s instruction and not just a good idea. The Bible makes clear that such appointments are essential to establishing a healthy vibrant Spirit-led local church. In this talk we address the process and provision for this in The Hill Church.

The Biblical texts to referred to in this talk are as follows: Acts 13:1-2; Colossians 1:18; Ephesians 3:10-11; Titus 2:14; John 10:4; Acts 14:21-23; Acts 20:17; Acts 20:28-31; Ephesians 3:10-21

The Thirty-Two – Mark’s Gospel (16 September 2018)

By | Teaching, The Message

History is full of men and women who have been either irritated, interested, intrigued and even impressed by Jesus of Nazareth. But the destination of all the entire Bible and early Christian witness is that the identity of Jesus is the intended destination. Mark recalled the specific accounts in his record to make the point that Jesus is the Christ, the saviour, the anointed one, the answer to the God we are looking for. This breathtaking view of the otherwise, the chasm and the bridge to reach it – Jesus, who is the Christ! Texts: Mark 7:31-36, 8:22-26 and 8:27-30
