Truth appears to be a disputed possibility in 2021. Scepticism and fake news, conspiracy theories, and self-identification that trumps scientific reality cause confusion and hopelessness in people across the globe. Thank God for His word and the Truth that sets us free.
Twelve Stones is a series based on the command of God to Joshua on the banks of the Jordan to take twelve stones and pile them one on top of another so that when people see the stones, they would remember what the Lord had done there. We need to remember in the context of transition and trial some key truths about the person of God and his calling on us his people.
Over this next series we will look at six characteristics of God, and six things that he says we are. After all, truth is not subjective, not pliable, or malleable. Truth is a person, and his name is Jesus. Twelve Stones to remember.

The early church was thrust into a new world where the power of God was evident in their lives and community. Acts two is the formation of that church, living Spirit-filled lives and gathering in small groups to grow and worship and embody the Gospel. In this short series, we look at how we can learn to be the church in our world and embrace the small communities at this moment of uncertainty.
In 1 Thessalonians Paul highlights mega themes that should determine our realities, as followers of Jesus, in the real world and teach us to be the real deal. As we open 1 Thessalonians we will be exploring being carriers of real news.

Worship is our response, both personal and corporate, to God for who He is, and what He has done; expressed in and by the things we say and the way we live.
In this four week series, we explore the power of the gathered worship experience – including why we worship, how we worship, and what happens when we worship.
The things we cling to most in life can become the root cause of our own demise. But the kingdom is full of principles that teach us that as we release “our precious”, its potential multiplies.
This series is an encouragement to realise that prayer is not about duty but about developing a relationship. As we develop this relationship with God all things become possible.
The Bible describes the church as a body that is joined and unified and working together to do the things that Jesus has called us to do. The head of the body is Jesus and he is the brains of the operation. How can we as a church begin to fulfil God’s vision for a church that is body beautiful?
