Empty

This is probably not the type of Easter you were expecting. You may have been expecting to go away over the Easter break for a relaxing holiday by the sea. You may have been expecting to be catching up with friends and family around mountains of food and festivities. Instead,…

Gospel impact in the Home

I hope you’ve all been able to adjust to the new COVID-19 environment. It has affected all communities around the world like nothing else ever has. What is God doing? This is a question many are asking. I don’t have the answer, but I do know how He wants us…

Caring for others in a Pandemic

It’s a cliché that we’re in uncharted waters, but it’s true. But we know Who’s steering the ship, and there are no safer and more loving hands. It’s a great comfort to know that God is our refuge and strength (Psalm 46:1). How can we care well for others at…

Judging unbelievers? 

Pastor Sam preached last week on how to (not) judge others within the church family. We saw that we must first humbly examine our own lives, before pointing out sins in our brothers and sisters. But what about when it comes to those outside of our church family? What about…

Radical Relationships

Jesus is Lord is one of the most significant statements that can be made. It was the first “creed” of Christians (as in a foundational, game-changer statement). Being saved by Jesus and living under his rule and direction changes everything. Especially our relationships. With God, with others, with God’s world.…

Radical Ambition

If you have had the opportunity of riding a bicycle, you would know the pleasure of travelling from point ‘A’ to point ‘B’ on a frame suspended by two wheels, with wind on your face and the swift changing scenery on your mind. If so, you would also be familiar…

Who am I?

The question of identity is a big one these days. Different people want to define themselves in different ways, sometimes without any regard for any kind of reality. The UK government is spending half a million pounds investigating the idea of “pregnant men”. We all know that there is a…
