Who Do You Think You Are? (4th August 2019)

By | Blog, Guest Speakers, Teaching

In this talk by Ed Strong, he reminds us that every Christian is a priest, connecting people to God. Taking the analogy of priesthood from the Old Testament he goes on to describe how every Christian is a person of water, a person of linen, a person of blood and a person of oil. Understanding these truths will transform our relationship with God and how we are to help connect others to God.

Don’t Put Out the Spirit’s Fire – Come Holy Spirit (28 July 2019)

By | Blog, Come Holy Spirit, Teaching

In this final talk of the series, Grant talks about how important it is that we not resist, or quench the Holy Spirit. (Or, as another translation has it, to ‘not put out the Spirit’s fire’). He looks at 6 ways whereby it is possible for us to suppress, or resist, what the Holy Spirit wants to do in us and through us. Conversely, we should welcome the Holy Spirit; being open to His working and fanning into flame what He wants to do among us.

Spot it, Kill it, Say – Come Holy Spirit (14 July 2019)

By | Blog, Come Holy Spirit, Teaching

What should be the evidence that we are known to be full of the Holy Spirit? As Grant explains in this talk, it may not only be through using the gifts of the Holy Spirit, but also in demonstrating the fruits of the Holy Spirit.
Part of this means that we need to recognise behaviour in our lives that is not the fruit of the Spirit. We need to spot it, kill it, and invite the Holy Spirit to help us become more like Jesus!

The Thirty-Ninth – Mark’s Gospel (07 July 2019)

By | Blog, Teaching, The Message

Peter asked Mark to record memories of his time with Jesus for one primary reason – so that we might know that Jesus Christ was the Son of God. In this message we cover the overall teaching of the Bible on divorce, and then focus in on the topic as it is covered in Mark – but we finish with the true reason it was included in this gospel letter all along. Text: Mark 10:1-12

The Thirty-Eighth – Mark’s Gospel (23 June 2019)

By | Blog, Teaching, The Message

The disciples have just left the mountain where Jesus was seen at his best. However a better mountain awaits where God will be seen at his weakness – The cross. On route Jesus teaches his followers not to miss the mission and the message and the moments that really count along the way. The message of Jesus and what his life, death and resurrection means changes everything! Not just at the start but also along the way. Text: Mark 9:30-50

Come, Make Us Like Jesus (09 June 2019)

By | Blog, Come Holy Spirit, Teaching

Father God has a plan to make us like Jesus and the work of the Holy Spirit is absolutely central that plan. Jesus said that the Holy Spirit would come to bring conviction of sin, righteousness and judgement. Conviction is a work of grace. Conviction leads to repentance, which in turn, brings salvation and blessing to our lives. We need to get rid of the sinful things in our lives and allow the Holy Spirit to develop holiness and the fruit of love, joy and peace.
