Exodus 40 - Gracious God Dwells With His People
The God who Dwells with His people, giving Relationship and Rest. The Tabernacle in Exodus pointing forward to when Jesus came to offer relationship and rest to any who trust in Him. (This service was followed by a Q&A. Questions came from those watching at the time, if you have any more please feel free to email the church and we would be happy to get back to you)
The Priests of Israel were to 1) Represent the People before God and 2) Reflect the Glory of God to the People. We are Represented before God by our Great High Priest Jesus, and we are to Reflect God's Glory to the World around Us.
Exodus 33-34 - Know that the LORD is Gracious
The main question is: how do we get back to God. After the Israelites were been set free by God's powerful hand they made and then spectacularly broke a relationship covenant with Him. They need not just any mediator, but Moses himself to intercede for them before God. But Moses is not adequate to offer himself for the sins of God's people and for us, for this we need a perfect mediator: we need Jesus.
Exodus 32 - The Heart of the Matter
The world tells us to follow our heart to find truth and satisfaction but this passage shows us just what the human heart is like. The nature of Sin is rebellion against God. The remedy for Sin is a mediator - in this passage Moses intercedes for his people but we look forward to Jesus who perfectly atones for our Sin.
Exodus 25 - The Tabernacle
We reach the climax of the story so far: God desires to dwell with His people. The tabernacle is a picture of His salvation plan, it points to Eden, ideal creation and rest. The tabernacle points forward to Jesus who dwelt among us and who will be our eternal temple.
Exodus 20-24: The Holy God's Holy People
After 18 chapters of undeserved rescue, the Israelites are instructed on how to become a Holy nation. They have been given the 10 commandments and now are given situational instructions on how to live and what to do when God's rules are broken. God cares about justice and He cares about the equal treatment of all people.
Exodus 20 -The Law of the Holy God
In our passage this week, God gives Moses the Ten Commandments, showing us that He want's to have a relationship with His people. These commandments point to a glorious God. They offer a far-reaching promise which is a privilege to obey. But in the end, the law is a test that we will all fail, but by the grace of Jesus Christ.
Exodus 19 - The God who makes Himself Relatable
God reminds His people that He is saving them for a close, personal, intimate relationship for Himself. He reminds them of his saving action in the past, His present saving command and His promise of salvation in the future. From this passage, we see that God has brought us into a relationship where we rightly, truly fear Him.
Exodus 16-18 - The God Who is Compassionate
When the Israelites cross the red sea to enter the wilderness, the LORD tests them out of love in order to strengthen their faith. But they respond by bitterly testing Him in return. Their grumbling shows a problem of perception, of expectation, of a lack of faith and of failing to obey Him. Yet God responds with love, showing that he dearly desires that they trust Him.
Exodus 15: The God of the Old Testament
Who is the God of the Old Testament and how can we reconcile this God with the 'meek and mild' Jesus of the New Testament? In this passage, we discover that the God of the Old Testament is not a vindictive bully, He is supremely Just. Furthermore, the God of the Old Testament is not cruel, but patient, merciful and lovingly self-sacrificial.
Exodus 13-14: The God who gets glory
The I AM God leads the Israelites out of Egypt in order to glorify his name. He gets glory in the defeat of the great enemy and He gets glory through the saving of his people.
Exodus 11-12: The God who Rescues (A Night to Remember)
Realise the power and might of the I AM God of Exodus. Remember His judgement on His enemies. Rejoice in our rescue and salvation.
The great I AM displays his sovereign, creation power through a series of exchanges with Pharaoh. We learn to fear this powerful God, but by taking refuge in Him there is safety.
Exodus 5-6: The God who Redeems
In the last passage, God revealed himself by name: I AM. Here, he reveals more of his character: he is a powerful Father God who promises to redeem his people at great cost. Do we really know this great I AM?
In this passage, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob reveals Himself to Moses by name. From this name, we learn that:God is Holy God is covenantal God is the rescuer God is relational God is who He Is God is self-defining God is self-existing God is unchanging God is transcendant God is self-revealing
At the start of Exodus, things are vastly different for the Israelites than at the end of Genesis. We ask ourselves 'where is the God of the promise' many times throughout the cosmic 'boxing-match' with Pharaoh in chapters 1 and 2. We find that in the midst of suffering, God works through the darkest times to bring his promises to fulfillment.
Psalm 42 and 43
Psalm 42 and 43 is a song of David as he cries out to God. In Psalm 42:1-5 he looks back with longing. In 42:6-11 he looks from afar with longing. In Psalm 43 he looks up with longing.
Easter Sunday 2020
Did Jesus really rise from the dead? Why is it important that He did? And what does that mean for us now? Join us as we celebrate together that first Easter Sunday in answering these questions as we take an investigative look at the factual evidence of the resurrection of Jesus, an act which proves once and for all that Jesus has power over sin and death… an act in which is hidden the very best news for humanity…
Easter 2020 - Good Friday
How can we call this day where we celebrate Jesus’ death on a cross ‘Good Friday’? Join us for an evening of a series of short talks and readings as we hear how the whole of the Bible is fulfilled through the words and actions of Jesus as he walks to the cross, and discover how this particular death brings unimaginable hope to the whole of humankind.

We finish our series hearing Jesus teaching that we should live radically counter-cultural lives. We hear that:God's people in his kingdom are to live generously We are exhorted to see clearly We are to build strongly
Jesus calls us to be radically counter-cultural. In this passage, Jesus teaches about the actions of radical love and the rational behind radical love.
The external realities of a shaken world
The external confidence in an unshakable God
Our eternal conviction in a sovereign Saviour
The Saviour's Opposition.
Jesus is: (1) Lord of the Sabbath (v.1-5); (2) Lord of Love (v.6-11); and (3) Lord of the New Israel (v.12-16).
The unpalatable Grace of Jesus
The uncontainable Majesty of Jesus
Christianity is fundamentally different from every other religion, because Jesus is willing and able saves us from our sin; he does not require us to find our own way to him or to make ourselves well - he does for us what we cannot do for ourselves.
The Saviour's Commission.
Simon Peter, as the model disciple, is: (1) humble before God's Word; (2) convicted of sin; (3) commissioned for divine service; and (4) cleansed by the grace of Christ.
The Saviour's Priority.
Jesus, the proven Son of God, speaks words that have total authority over evil and sickness, highlighting his unfolding priority.
John 10:1-21 - The Good Shepherd
Beware of the bad shepherds who destroy
Listen to the voice of the Good Shepherd who gives life
The Saviour's Announcement - Jesus sets out his manifesto and mission statement (v. 14-21) and is met with rejection from people looking for a saviour of their own making (v. 22-30).
The Saviour’s Preparation
Jesus proves Himself to be the genuine article by:
- Resisting the temptation to serve Himself
- Resisting the temptation to serve the Devil
- Resisting the temptation to test God
The Saviour’s Connections - Luke 3:21-38
1. Jesus is God’s Anointed Ruler
2. Jesus is God's Suffering Servant
3. Jesus is the Start of a New Humanity
