Inside Out: 12 – Teach us to Pray

Inside Out: 12 – Teach us to Pray

Surveys show that a remarkably high percentage of people admit to praying, at least occasionally. Perhaps for some of us, we’re really unsure about how to pray. What do I say? What do I pray about? How does this whole thing work? While for others of us, perhaps those of us who have been Christians [ more… ]

Inside Out: 11 – How not to Pray

Inside Out: 11 - How not to Pray

As we continue our series looking at the Sermon on the Mount, in today’s passage Jesus is talking about Prayer. Of course we pray together when we meet for services and prayer meetings – but how do we pray when we on our own with God? Do we pray at all – or if we [ more… ]

Nehemiah pt 2: What is it that you want?

Nehemiah pt 2: What is it that you want?

Last week we started a series journeying through the book of Nehemiah. Even though he was a Jewish exile in Babylon, Nehemiah’s highly successful career had placed him in a senior position in the King’s palace. But having heard of the desolate condition of Jerusalem, Nehemiah was prepared to put both his career and his [ more… ]

Acts part 4: Bold

Acts part 4: Bold

The “simple” healing at the beginning of chapter 3 gives rise to another opportunity to tell people about Jesus, which nearly sets off a riot and (by chapter 4) gets Peter and John arrested. When they get out by the skin of their teeth, how does the rest of the church react? Unfortunately there is [ more… ]

Prayer

Prayer

We’ve been doing a lot of praying recently – and there’ll be plenty more in the weeks and months to come! So this morning we’re going to be talking about what prayer is exactly – why do we do it? What’s the point? How should we do it, and how can we get better at [ more… ]

More Than Conquerors

More Than Conquerors

We believe that God has exciting plans for this church and for this community! But we also recognise that to play our part in those plans effectively, we need to start by asking God to renew our hearts and minds, and by choosing to recommit ourselves to him. We’re focussing on exactly that today, and [ more… ]

Elijah 7: Prophet on his knees

Elijah 7: Prophet on his knees

Two weeks ago we left Elijah at Mount Carmel after his dramatic and overwhelming victory over the prophets of Baal. He might be feeling like a rest – but there’s still plenty to do, because although God has promised that the rains will return and bring an end to the drought, it hasn’t actually rained [ more… ]

Elijah 4: Boiling Prayers

Elijah 4: Boiling Prayers

We’re in the middle of a teaching series on the life of the prophet Elijah. Elijah has been staying with a widow in the town of Zarephath, where last week we saw God miraculously providing for them. But today as we reach 1 Kings 17:17-24, it seems like everything goes wrong again.

The Jonah Adventure: 2 – Desperate for God

The Jonah Adventure: 2 - Desperate for God

Last week, after Jonah had tried his hardest to run away from God’s call, we left him sinking down into the depths of the sea and about to drown. Will our not-very-heroic hero survive another chapter? We’ll see…

Joel and the End Times

Joel and the End Times

Welcome to 2013 – and congratulations on having survived the end of the world! What, didn’t you notice the Mayan apocalypse in December? Or the asteroid hitting the Earth, or the alien invasion, or…
