    Never give up in the fight against sin and evil. But always remember the power of God and the armour with which he’s equipped us. And pray on every occasion that you’ll be able to stand firm.

    Do you remember when we looked at Paul’s prayer in Eph 3 that I commented how difficult it is to achieve the sort of unity that God wants from his church? In fact I pointed out that that’s why Paul prays the way he does: because only by God’s power can this miracle come about. Paul knows that apart ...read more

    We come today to the core issue of the letter: If we're to fulfil our destiny as a church, if we're to demonstrate the manifold wisdom of God then we must be united in heart and mind.

    As we live as a body, we should help each other to be well dressed, to look our best. Let’s be dressed to impress – impress the world that God is our God, that we are his people, that we are Christ’s body!

    Sermon by Rev George Hemmings. Over the last three weeks, I’ve been to three weddings. They’ve all been very different, but they’ve all presented the same challenge – What am I going to wear? The first was Ellen and Jamin’s wedding. I thought I was pretty safe ...read more

    We're the light of the world and children of light. Allow that light to shine brightly in our lives to light up those around us. Let’s expose their deeds as we seek to shine brightly for Jesus, so that they may be quickened and made light themselves.

    This is an image from my childhood that has just stuck with me. It’s from one of those movies that we used to watch over and over again, at least every holiday. It’s from the last of the original, and good, Star Wars movies. In my mind, it’s one of the pivotal scenes from the ...read more

    If we’re truly united with Christ then our basic approach to our relationships will be one of mutual submission, working together to do Christ’s work.

    I hope you’ve picked up as we’ve gone through this letter over the last few weeks that Paul isn’t just giving us lessons in Godly behaviour. He isn’t just telling us how to live lives that will please God. Rather, he’s telling us how to live lives that’ll ...read more
