Cross Vision: Ransom - Nigel Savage

March 31st 2019. Cross Vision: Ransom: Mark 10:45 (Hosea 13:14, Acts 20:28)

The Cross is at the heart of the preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ. It has become the defining image of worship for Christians, and what was a fearful symbol of torture and execution in the Roman world is now worn casually as jewellery by people of faith and without it. The cross is like a diamond with many facets, and this Lent we will be looking at three aspects of the work of Christ on the cross. Download Discussion notes

People of God: David: Man after God's heart - Rob Scott-Cook

July 15th 2018. People of God: David. (1 & 2 Samuel) The story of David takes up a huge portion of the narrative history of the people of God in the Old Testament. David also writes many of the Psalms, and is pivotal to the story of Israel both in his ancestry and his descendants and their histories. Why is such a large part of scripture devoted to someone who could be described as an adulterer and a ‘man of blood’? Download Discussion notes

Truth Encounters: Women - Tim Dobson

July 15th 2018. Truth Encounters: Woman: (John 4) This week we see a polar opposite truth encounter from Nicodemus in John 3. Instead of a socially elite, Jewish male religious expert we see a socially excluded, samaritan woman. She encounters the truth that sets you free when she meets Jesus, who knows her. She reminds me of Hagar, another foreign excluded woman who in Genesis 16 encounters the angel of God at a well and says 'I have now seen the one who sees me'. Download Discussion notes

Building tomorrow’s Church today: Inclusion - Philip Jinadu

Please note due to a technical error, thesis just an audio talk.

July 1st 2018. Building tomorrow’s Church today
: Inclusion (Galatians 3:28-29) We live in a rapidly changing world. Historic churches however tend to value tradition and permanence. They can often be characterised as conservative institutions. The Church Jesus founded however was a dynamic movement that He was building in a way that meant it could take the offensive (‘and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against her’). In this series we look at some of the values of Church (values carry permanence) and some of the practices that are more flexible as we consider the challenges of the future.

Power encounters: Imparting the Spirit - David Mitchell

July 1st 2018. Power encounters: Imparting the Spirit. (John 20) The gospels give us stories of Jesus encountering all kinds of people. Many of those people had real needs and their encounter with Jesus turned out to be a ‘power encounter.’ In Jesus, the ‘powers of the age to come’ broke into their lives in healing, deliverance, provision and challenge. The power encounters we read about serve as an encouragement of the grace of God, but also a challenge to us about living a spirit empowered life. Download Discussion notes
