The Trinity - Part 2 - Roles in the Trinity
We look at the roles that make up the trinity. We will learn how the trinity is reflected in the unity and diversity of the church family and in our everyday lives.
Who is God - Part 4
We see how to point our worship back to Christ. We learn that regardless of our imperfections and failures, we have an all powerful perfect, beautiful God who is perfectly able to make us righteous in Jesus. Not because of what we have done, but because of what he has done and who He is.
Who is God - Part 3
In part 3 of our Who is God series, we look at further aspects of God's character. His Love, His Holiness, His Righteousness, His Jealousy, His Wrath and His Will.
Who is God - Part 2
We learn that God not only knows everything about everything, but due to His goodness, Spirit, Wisdom and truthfulness, that knowledge of all things means He always knew we needed a savour in His Son Jesus Christ.
Who is God - Part 1
We look at His eternal existence, that He is knowable, His Independence, unchangeableness and omnipresence.
The Way, The Truth, The Life - Part 3 | The Bible | Sufficiency
We learn how the Bible is sufficient on its own to bring us knowledge about God and is the only way to know salvation through Jesus Christ.
The Way, The Truth, The Life - Part 2 | The Bible | Understandable and Necessary
We look at how the bible has been made to be understood and forms a necessary part of becoming and being a Christian.

We look at the authority of the Bible and where it comes from.

Christmas Message 2022
Christ is for Life, not just for Christmas
The Call to Faith - Part 9
We discover that God doesn't need people to accomplish His plans, but rather offers us an invitation to be part of the inevitable plans that God is carrying out and will finish. God invites us to live a life of meaning and purpose, and away from a life of futility.
The Call to Faith - Part 8
This week, in our Call to Faith series, we look at what it means to be in the world as a Christian, ensuring we do not become products of the world.
The Call to Faith | Part 7 - Strength of the Lord
We learn that no matter how much physical strength you might have – no matter how much you can throw yourself into a task – it won’t be complete unless you have a reason and purpose for doing it. Not by human will, but by God’s spirit.
In order to be a light to the world, it does not require an endless expending of energy, building new programs and coming up with new ideas. God’s work is not brought about by human strength – but by people trusting in God’s strength.
The Call to Faith Part 6 - The Accused made Righteous
We look at how Jesus welcomes people to repent and be made right in the eyes of God, so being made righteous through salvation. Find out how this righteousness in Christ protects believers from the accuser, Satan.
The Call to Faith | Part 4 - Forever God
We look at the minor prophet Zechariah and how he brought a call for God's people to return to Him, and not repeat the ways of their fathers before them. We look at the promise of God to bring mercy to His people, as well blessing and prosperity, as long His people return to Him and turn from their ways.
The Call to Faith | Part 3 - Defiled but not defeated

Sermon on the Mount - Part 14
The final part of the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 7:24–29 contains Jesus' famous illustration contrasting two foundations for life. One is lived according to His teaching, the other is not. Foundations matter, both in construction and in the way a person views the world. Those who follow Jesus' teaching are like a wise man who built a house on a rock. Those who ignore Him are like a foolish man who built a house on sand. One will survive the violent storm. The other will fall hard. The same is true of those who face the storms of life. After Jesus finishes the "Sermon on the Mount" the crowd were amazed. They had never heard teaching like His. Accustomed to the more philosophical teaching of the Jewish rabbis, they were shocked to hear Jesus be so authoritative and definitive about truth and error, right and wrong, life and destruction.

Sermon on the Mount - Part 13
Sermon on the Mount - Part 12
The Narrow and Wide Gates - The way of Jesus begins by entering a narrow gate and continues down a hard path that leads to life. He commands His followers to take that path instead of the easy road that leads to destruction.
Sermon on the Mount - Part 11
Ask Seek Knock - Matthew 7:7–12 describes God as a generous Father eager to give good gifts to His praying children. Jesus commands His followers to continually ask and seek, with confidence that they will receive and find. Christ summarizes the intent of God's commands in the Old Testament: doing for others what we want done for us.

The Lord gave Cushan-Rishathaim king of Aram into the hands of Othniel, who overpowered him. 11 So the land had peace for forty years, until Othniel son of Kenaz died. 12 Again the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord, and because they did this evil the Lord gave Eglon king of Moab power over Israel.

Then you will be prosperous and successful. 9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

12 The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.
2 “I will make you into a great nation,
and I will bless you;

and you will be a blessing.[a]

and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you.”[b]
WLWB - The way we are
19 Lamech married two women, one named Adah and the other Zillah. 20 Adah gave birth to Jabal; he was the father of those who live in tents and raise livestock. 21 His brother’s name was Jubal; he was the father of all who play stringed instruments and pipes. 22 Zillah also had a son, Tubal-Cain, who forged all kinds of tools out of[a] bronze and iron. Tubal-Cain’s sister was Naamah.
23 Lamech said to his wives,
“Adah and Zillah, listen to me;
wives of Lamech, hear my words.
I have killed a man for wounding me,
a young man for injuring me.
24 If Cain is avenged seven times,
then Lamech seventy-seven times.”
