Blessings and Woes
Sam Lomas

In Luke chapter 6, Jesus teaches that following Him doesn’t mean we won't suffer. But we can view suffering from a place of blessing rather than curse – knowing that we have a Saviour who not only endured the worst suffering, but promises us a new life, new hope, and new future with Him.

Lord of the Sabbath

Shaninga Marasha

The Sabbath was always intended to allow people to rest in God’s freedom and favour, but instead the Pharisees turned it into a way of burdening and prohibiting people from truly experiencing God’s fullness of life. In this talk, Shaninga considers how we can enter into God’s Sabbath rest as a way of delighting ourselves in Him.

Talk series

In this series we’ll explore the world-changing story of Jesus through the Gospel of Luke. It’ll be a chance to not only see why the Gospel stories are important, but how we can actually read and understand them. We’ll get to immerse ourselves in Jesus’ life, teachings, death, and resurrection. But we’ll also explore key people and themes throughout Luke that will help challenge and encourage us as followers of Jesus in today’s world.

What does generosity mean and look like as a follower of Jesus today? Why is generosity a core part of who we are as disciples? In this series (part of ‘Life to the Full’), we’ll explore why generosity is a key marker for Christians, and what it means to follow Jesus generously with our money, resources, time, work, possessions, and more. We’ll look at some biblical passages that relate to generosity, money, wealth, and stewardship.

This four talk series explores each of these themes and promises of God, that we might experience and grow in each of them as we reflect on all that He has done and all that is to come. This series will help us to reflect on Advent as a season of waiting and longing; a season to sit with the darkness, with the promise of hope to be fulfilled. It’s a season to remember the coming of Jesus 2000 years ago and to actively wait for His coming again! We don’t wait alone; He is with us in the waiting. He is our Love, Joy, Peace and Hope.
