As we reach the end of the first half of the book of Acts, we find a collection of short episodes: the start of the church in Antioch, and Barnabas and then Paul going to work with them; a prophecy about the famine which was going to be affecting the Roman world and how the [ more… ]

Breakout: 10 – No Favourites

Breakout: 10 - No Favourites

Peter’s vision of a sheet filled with animals being lowered down from heaven might stick in our minds, simply because it’s a slightly strange story… but is it anything more than that?

Breakout: 7 – Count the Stories

Breakout: 7 - Count the Stories

Take a minute to read Acts 6:8 to 8:3 before watching this. We think of this as the story of Stephen, famously the first Christian martyr. But there are actually a surprising number of different stories intertwined here – and Stephen’s is not the central one.

Breakout: 5 - The Sad Story of Ananias & Sapphira

Breakout: 4 – Transformed & Emboldened

Breakout: 4 - Transformed & Emboldened

Jesus transformed Peter’s life and in Acts 4 we get a glimpse into that. His life presents us with both the challenge and encouragement that God loves us as we are but loves us so much He doesn’t leave us as we are. In Acts 4 we explore some of the ways Peter, and the [ more… ]
