    John wants us to believe. Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; 26and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?”’ (John 11) The question is do you believe?

    Sermon by Rev George Hemmings Before I begin this morning, there’s a little tradition that goes with Easter Sunday called the Easter Acclamation, or the Paschal greeting. Basically one person says ‘Christ is Risen,’ and then the response is, ‘He is Risen indeed!’ Given some of us might be a ...read more

    John's gospel ends, leaving us reassured in our faith, so we can pray for leaders at all levels in church – that they humbly serve their flocks, and we can all re-fix our eyes on Jesus in love, and follow him, relieved of distracting comparisons.

    Sermon by Rev Ruth Newmarch You know how in some movies, the music tells you the end has come, but sometimes the ending has been so dramatic, that you are still taking it in...the implications and emotions are swirling around the audience. Then credits start to roll, but the director has added ...read more

  • Surviving The Education System Series

    Daniel knows that God is in control. This chapter reminds us that no matter where we are, even in the darkest place, God is still in control. God cares and God wants us to live faithfully to him. Will we have the courage to stand up like Daniel does?

    (Sermon by Rev George Hemmings) There’s lots to be excited by in the book of Daniel. Daring stories of young men standing up to mad kings. Fiery furnaces, strange dreams of statues and trees, men turning into beasts, hands appearing out of nowhere writing on walls, let alone Daniel being ...read more

     | 2,082 views

    Why should we read the Bible and why should we read it regularly?

    I wonder how many of you are old enough to remember a TV show called the Greatest American Hero. It was about an ordinary guy who encounters aliens who’ve decided that earth is in such a bad way it needs saving. So they send him a belt that gives him super powers. They also give him a set of ...read more

    Wolves have entered the church and Paul writes to correct the errors that they're promoting

    It’s interesting that the two places where Paul spent the most time in his missionary travels, Corinth and Ephesus, appear from his letters to have the most problems. He certainly spends a lot of his time writing to correct the errors that were being introduced by certain people. But then we ...read more

    Paul wants Timothy to confront some of the elders and leaders of the church who’ve deviated from the truth, Paul uses the language of a fight, of conflict and war, to describe the struggle that Timothy is engaged in

    Imagine for a minute that you’re Timothy. If you can, think back to what it was like to be 30! Now, imagine you’re slightly reserved, perhaps a little timid. You’ve travelled around with Paul, but now he’s left you in charge of the church at Ephesus. At long last, you receive a letter from ...read more

    Paul tells us how we should conduct ourselves when we come together to worship. He speaks separately to men and women. The issues are different for men and women

    In 2:3&4 Paul says: “This is right and is acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires everyone to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” He reminds us that there is only one God and only one mediator between God and humanity, Jesus Christ. So he first asks us ...read more

    Be careful what you ask for when you make a complaint to God. Sometimes God delays bringing justice to the world because the price is so high. Sometimes justice is brought about by unjust people. Be prepared to let God decide when's the right time to act.

    Introduction to the letter to the Ephesians. What does it mean if I say that if you’re a Christian you’re “in Christ”?

    I wonder how good your theology is. How well thought out are you? Have you worked out the answers to those difficult questions about God that arise from time to time? Or are you like me and are still thinking some things through? Of course those who are well educated theologically have probably ...read more

    I hope that those of you who were here last week have been waiting with anticipation to hear more about God’s eternal plan for the world.

    Jesus responds to a woman, not simply because he loves all people, but because of the great faith she shows in Jesus.This can be an example for each one of us of how to persevere in prayer and faith in God.

    We Christians often get criticised for our belief in the uniqueness of Christ. People accuse us of being exclusive because we believe that Jesus is the way the truth and the life and no-one comes to the Father except through him. We believe that there’s no other name given under heaven by ...read more
