The Power of the Tongue – Sarah Deutscher (18/03/18)

Your words shape your world! This week, Sarah speaks about the power of the tongue. She gives us a number of antidotes using the example of Jesus, who knew when and when not to speak, and when He did speak, His words brought healing.

The Freedom of Simplicity – Mark Sayers (11/03/18)

This week, Mark shares how the practice of simplicity is being emptied in order to be filled again by His will and His Heart and how calling is found being in close proximity to God, which can we can only do when we live simply.

Secrecy: Counter-Cultural Training for the Soul – Ryan Wallis (04/03/18)

This week, we hear from Ryan Wallis, Red Apprentice Minister who speaks from Luke: 6:45. Ryan shares how we need a healthy hidden space, as God wants to bring us in vertical alignment with Him. Secrecy cannot coexist with pride, it empties us of pride and allows us to flourish.

Solitude and the Healing of our Divided Hearts – Mark Sayers (25/02/2018)

This week, Mark shared about Jesus’ time alone in the wilderness. He quotes Blaise Pascal: “The sole cause of a man’s unhappiness is that he does not know how to stay quietly in his room.” Pascal shows us that solitude reveals our fallen hearts, torn between madly diverting ourselves from own lostness and our desire for the lost Eden.  Thus, we cycle between restless distractions and distracted resting.

The Anointing Rides on Obedience – Mark Sayers (18/02/18)

This week, Mark kicks-off our new Lenten series: The Way through the Wild. He speaks about how Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, was led into the wilderness and tempted by the devil. Although Jesus was the Son of God, He was an obedient son, and the Father’s word was his meat and drink.  He resisted temptation without the benefit of His own omnipotence, showing himself to be the perfect obedient man.

Behold! I am Doing a New Thing – Brittany White (11/02/18)

Brittany wraps-up our sub-series: An Ancient Vision for the Church in the 21st Century. Just like the church in Antioch, God wants to do a new thing and His vision is bigger than ours.  What would it look like for us to be open to what He wants for us, our church, our city and beyond?

Becoming Red Hot – Part 2: Sacrifice – Mark Sayers (04/02/18)

Mark continues with our new sermon series: Becoming Red Hot, An Ancient Vision for the Church in the 21st Century. He speaks about how like the church in Antioch, we need to respond to grace by living in a sacrificial way. To be a church that does not conform to patterns of the world.

Becoming Red Hot – Part 1: The Holy Spirit – Sarah Deutscher (28/01/18)

Choosing God in an Age of Over-Choice – Bjorn Irani (14/01/18)

A Glorious Shock – Mark Sayers (17/12/17)

We lose something when Christmas becomes familiar and we are distracted from its true meaning. As we continue Advent, we are reminded of the glorious shock of the Christmas story about a baby coming into the world when least expected.

The Magi and Our Modern Moral Order – Mark Sayers (10/12/17)

As Mark launches our final Follow Me series – I Am Here, Follow Me celebrating Advent; we take a look at how the Magi, in obedience to the Holy Spirit, followed a star to Jerusalem in search a King, fulfilling the promise of the Day of the Lord and challenging the moral order of their time. As we live in a culture of competing moral orders we are challenged to be a people who bow our knee to Jesus, the King who has a different moral order to what our culture tells us.
