This series will help us reflect on Advent as a season of waiting and longing, with the promise of hope to be fulfilled. Advent is traditionally a season to remember the coming of Jesus 2000 years ago and to actively wait for His coming again.
We will look at four people in the New Testament who were central in the story of Jesus’ birth as they waited for their King to come; and we will consider what we can learn from them about living with longing and hope in the context of our world today.
Jesus is arguably the most important person to have ever lived. But He actually made some huge claims about Himself – claims to be more than just a person. In John’s gospel there are seven sayings, where Jesus declares Himself to be none other than God, and the answer to humanity’s deepest longings. In this series, we will explore the ‘I Am’ sayings of Jesus, and consider how He is the answer to the pains and problems of this broken world.
In the book of Romans, Paul teaches that followers of Jesus should consider themselves to be Living Sacrifices, treating the whole of our lives as worship to God. In this series we’re going to unpack that idea by working through Romans 12, considering what it means for us as we seek to love and serve one another, build deep and genuine community, navigate challenging seasons of life, and be a blessing to our city.
Right through Scripture, the Holy Spirit has been active, creating, shaping, restoring, and empowering God’s people to be a blessing to the world. In this series, we want to consider what it would look like for us to live Spirit filled lives, so that we can continue his work today, with the particular challenges our world is facing.
In this series, we’re looking at the Kingdom of God, and asking what kind of King Jesus is, and what kind of Kingdom He’s building. We will see that Jesus’ vision of the Kingdom meets our deepest needs and longings, and is a beautiful blueprint for how we as a church can partner with God in working for the Cultural, Social and Spiritual renewal of London.
In this series, we’re looking at the stories of men and women in Scripture who trusted God, clung to His promises, and were commended for their faith. And as we consider their examples, we will learn how we can also trust God and live faith-filled lives.
No figure in history has demonstrated such beautiful character as Jesus. He is the supreme example of love, patience, kindness, faithfulness, and peace. These are all characteristics that we need, especially in challenging seasons! In this series, we will look at how relying on the Holy Spirit enables us to develop the very same characteristics in our lives.
