Our December preaching series is entitled “Who is This King”. This is a statement, not a question! During this crazy month, we want to take a step back and discover afresh who Jesus is and why He came. We want to be blown away by God’s kindness and love toward us. We want to be reminded of the wonderful gift of our Saviour, Jesus Christ!

Our Christmas Eve service will be the crescendo of our series and is called “The Arrival”. We’ll be sharing Jesus like never before so bring everyone you know, it’s going to be awesome!

Our world seems to have become saturated with substitutes and copies of the original. Nothing seems to be genuine anymore. From products and services to values and common decency. From leaders in politics, industry and a whole host of disciplines, we see a glaring lack of integrity, genuineness and authenticity. Our November series is entitled “Authentic”. We’re going to be studying 1John together and discovering what is means to live out authentic Christianity.

John Wayne once said “Life is hard, but its harder if you’re stupid!” Our October preaching series is entitled “Life Hacks from Jesus”. A “life hack” is something that makes our lives easier in a way. It is simply an easier, cleverer way of doing something tedious, painful or time consuming. Jesus wants us to experience life to the max, and he shows us how to get there.

Jesus’ parting shot for the church was ” Go and make disciples of all nations…” Making disciples is a really big deal to Jesus, but we sort of see it as optional, only for those who’ve got it all together, the uber-christians!

We are called to be disciples of Jesus and to make disciples of Jesus at the same time. This is the task of every believer! During this series, we are going to explore how every one of us can become a disciple-maker.

We often speak rather glibly about hearing the voice of God, as if it’s as simple as falling off of a log. To some that may be the case, and we salute you! But for the rest of us lesser mortals, it can involve some degree of stress, especially when faced with potentially life altering decisions. Jesus said that His sheep hear His voice and follow Him. Its clear then, that we can and must hear His voice in order to follow Him well. Yes, but how? You may be asking. Well we’re going to try to answer that question during our June preaching series entitled “Hearing the Voice of God”. We think this is going to be a cracker series you don’t want to miss!

songs of hope

When King David of the Jews had his back against the wall, hounded on every side by his enemies, betrayed by his friends, he chose to do something which was totally counterintuitive. He sang “Songs of Hope”! We may not be in David’s exact predicament, but we do face challenges and tough times, and how we respond to them makes all the difference. Either we struggle in our flesh try to go it alone, or we sing “Songs of Hope”, and open the way for God to bring His deliverance in His time. We look forward to sharing our new series in anticipation of an outpouring of God’s grace in each of our lives.

When we sing that great refrain, “Christ is enough for me”, we do so with passion and conviction. But often the pressures of life seem to somehow drown out those beautiful words, and all we hear is the white noise of our attempts to tune in again to His Spirit. We desperately want to live in a different space but we tend to stumble over our past, or our present circumstances, or maybe our future prospects, or even our concept of eternity. Through our new series, “Christ is Enough”, which ties in beautifully with our celebration of Easter, we will explore the wonderful freedom and completeness we have in Christ. We will discover that He is truly enough for us in every season of life!
