Jesus Light of the World: Sent

The way in which Jesus brings light to a man born blind illustrates how His life brings light to all who will go where He sends them.  Are you willing to go?

Jesus Light of the World: Believe

John tells us that Jesus’ life is the light of the world. The world is divided into two parts. The people who want to hide from that light and those who are drawn to trust in the life of Jesus so much that they change their behaviour. Hear what it means to believe in Jesus.

God’s Dwelling Place: In Jesus

Jesus is the exact representation of God. God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in Him. Jesus is the true Israel, the tent of meeting, the temple, through Him we find the way to reconciliation with God. Last week we thought about pressing into the holy of holies to meet with God. This week we hear Jesus’ invitation to be immersed in the unity of Father, Son and Spirit. We are invited to dwell in God.

Easter: Fake News or Good News?

How do we know the truth about a report we hear? Whether it is on the TV, in the papers or on social media? In the rush to get the scoop, lies and half-truths mascaraed as news. Some people see the resurrection of Jesus like that. Fake news, concocted because people need something to believe. Even some Christians think that we are asked to believe entirely on the basis of blind faith rather than evidence. This is not the case. Chris offers three types of evidence: Historical, Psychological and Experiential.

The Message of the Cross

In this series our aim is not to come up with clever theories about the cross but to reap its benefits, live its life and proclaim its gospel. Chris aims to inspire us to discover again the wonder and power of the cross of Christ. In the first talk he focusses on the revelation which the cross brings about who we are, who God is and how we can be reconciled.

The Sabbath

Peter Finnis preaches on Matthew 11 vs 28 – 12 vs 14 and Jesus’ attitude towards the Sabbath.

In contrast to the Old Testament Sabbath and the views of the Pharisees, we learn that Sabbath rest is wholeness and well-being in our whole lives, to be found only in Jesus when we walk alongside Him. Sabbath rest for the people of God is to submit our efforts and our work to Him – to enter God’s rest in order to rest from our own work.

Our lives surrendered to Christ brings rest and what follows is Christ’s work in us.

“Our hearts are restless until they find their rest in God”
