Loser: Lose your faith - Tim Dobson (with Steve Ballard)

September 8th 2018 7pm. Loser: Lose your faith (Hebrews 3:12-19, 6:4-6)

Losing your faith sadly happens to people. It is a major concern of the book of Hebrews. Losing faith can mean losing ‘dynamic’ faith and sinking into ‘religion’ and ‘dead works (instead of live works). It can mean backing away from identifying as a follower of Jesus for fear of persecution. It can mean de-constructing faith, or coming to question previous experiences or convictions. How can we avoid losing our faith? Download Discussion notes

Loser: Lose your life - Dave Mitchell

September 1st 2019 7pm: Loser: Lose your life. (Luke 9:23-27. Philippians 3).

Sometimes we are accused of offering a ‘cheap’ gospel; God is so loving and so for us that to be a Christian is blessing all the way without cost. Jesus however combined the proclamation of good news with a stark call to follow the way of the cross (The Calvary Road). To follow Jesus is to embrace a life that may involve suffering and persecution. For those of us in the West it’s a challenge to listen to the persecuted Church. Would we be keen to identify as Christians if we had to face what they do? Why do they do it? Download Discussion notes

Voice: Shepherd's Voice - David Mitchell and Laura Harris

July 28th 7pm: Voice: Shepherd’s voice (John 10:4). The Love language of God.

Sometimes we project our fears on to God and think his voice is harsh. These verses speak of the tenderness of God. They speak of His knowledge of us and our ability to know Him. When we hear the voice of God, we know we are known by him (c.f. Hagar in Genesis 16:13). That is why prophecy and word of knowledge can be so powerful. That is why the prophetic is for encouraging and comfort. The voice of God is a love language, sometimes a love song, and one where we are fully and deeply known. Download Discussion notes

Voice: Familiar Voice - Nigel Savage

July 7th 2018 7pm. Voice: Familiar Voice (1 Samuel:3).

Samuel is a prophet with huge influence. He represents a huge hinge moment in the history of God’s people. He like other prophets (Moses, Jeremiah, John the Baptist) is ushering in a new era, in this case the age of the Kings. When Samuel is called, he is a young boy and mistakes the voice of God for the voice of Eli, the aged priest who is his guardian v 4. Download Discussion notes
