Second part of a series based on 2 Timothy 2.1-7 called We Are. Paul was at the end of his life and he wrote this to Timothy, a local church leader, and this is his most personal and endearing letter. He is passing the baton onto Timothy and he tells him - this is is who you are and this is what it means to follow Jesus.

Continuing our current theme 'Under Construction' Richard speaks on "Write Off's". In our culture, we can have a tendency to write things off such as, a car after an accident or an old phone. However, we also write people off and we can write ourselves off. Richard asked, "Does God ever write anyone off? And if not, what right do we have to write anyone, including ourselves, off?"
Continuing the theme "Under Construction" this time looking at how our work should be viewed as service. This is difficult though as we live in a culture of Stuff & Status and sometimes we would rather wash our hands instead of getting them dirty
A very practical update on some of the specific ways, that we as a local church are caring for our garden. We have the choice to be Tenants, Tourists or Stewards.
Looking at the incarnation and how God has always been 'Seeking Those In Hiding'. This is an important message as it reminds us of our missional father who is always seeking to save
Christmas can be such a hectic season with so many extra things added on top of already busy lives, which is why Richard's message on Sunday about pausing in the midst of distraction was so timely.
The message on Sunday looked at the expectations we have of Jesus and how when he came to Earth, he showed us that he usually doesn't do what we expect.
We kicked off a festive theme called Joy To The World and looked at the line from that song which says, Let Every Heart Prepare Him Room. How do we make space for the Saviour in our hearts?
We have spent the last few weeks looking at some pretty big topics: Un-forgiveness, Bitterness, Fear & Disappointment. What takes the place of those things? What does a changed life look like? By God's grace and the tools of Humility, Community and Time we are being changed to be more like Jesus. Debbie also shares a beautiful testimony of God's gracious work in her life.
