The Jesus Who Offends - Sunday January 14th

We tend not to think of Jesus as being offensive. Yet, in his own day, he clearly was. People didn't like being called hypocrites, or being told that it was their hearts that were the problem. But do we like hearing that any more today than they did then? And if Jesus says the problem of the human condition is the human heart - what's the solution? We can't give ourselves ...

Advent Services Sunday 17th December

How might you respond if, after a lifetime of waiting, you finally get what you've been waiting for? In our two services this Sunday we're going to be seeing four different responses to just such a happening. And despite the fact that they all respond to the same thing - the birth of the Messiah - they are very different. The question is, how do their responses mirror our...

The Problem of Evil and the Power of God

The problem of evil is something that can undermine the faith of many. And yet it's also a problem for those who don't believe. After all - why is evil a problem if there are no moral absolutes and no God? So, given that evil is a problem for believer and unbeliever alike, what does Jesus have to say about it? In our Morning Service(10:30am) we will continue looking at M...

Sceptics, Signs and Jesus - October 29th

If it's good to ask questions (and it is), and if it's good to seek evidence for belief (and it is), why does Jesus give the religous leaders of his day such a hard time when they asked him for proof? And what does his response have to teach us in our secular, sceptical age? In our Morning Service we will continue looking at the Gospel of Matthew, 12:38-50: Sceptics, Sign...

Rest for your soul: Sunday October 8th

We have little problem with the idea of a God of Love, but a God who judges.... well, that's a different matter. In fact, some would say that love and judgment cannot go together. And yet, Jesus saw things differently. He went from pronouncing curses on cities to offering rest for the weary and heavy laden. How can you reconcile those two things? In our Morning Service we...
