Jesus tells a story about a farmer who sowed seed on different soils. In the first talk of 2020, Liam unpacks this parable, encouraging us to reflect on the state of our hearts, and surrender to the one who can make us truly fruitful.
We live in a context in which Christianity is no longer the dominant religion. This can pose all sorts of challenges and pressures as we seek to follow Jesus.

Life in Twenty-First Century London is full of pressures: How can I make ends meet? What do people think of me? Am I good enough or successful enough? But such pressures aren’t unique to our day and age. Philippians is an ancient letter written by the Apostle Paul, in which he explores how to experience joy and contentment in even our hardest circumstances.
