Sermons from August 2021

The Seed and the Soil

The parable of the sower is one of Jesus’ most famous parables, and often in the church we use it when speaking about mission, viewing ourselves at the sowers. But this week Chris turns it on its head and asks which type of soil are we?
Susan leads the rest of the service with contributions from Pete and Lynne leading the music.

Communion August 2021

For our August communion service Chris leads us through a few verses from the sermon on the mount, inviting us to further examine ourselves and our attitudes by asking three questions: where are you storing up your treasure, what is your world view and are you heding your bets?
Andy leads the rest of the service with contributions online from Greta and Jacqui and in-person music led by Pete and Nick.

Catching the Wave: The Church

As Christians we are called not to be lone operators but form communities of people, what we now call “church”. Chris concludes our Catching the Wave series by speaking on our contribution to the church and how we can pray for revival in our nation and around the world.
Karen leads the rest of the service with music from Pete and Lynne.

What’s In Your Hand?

As Chris is away this week Susan brings us back to a question that we first asked ourselves in 2019, what is in your hand? That question has taken on far more meaning than we ever thought it could have done over the last year and a half, and because of that Susan asks us to reconsider our answer. After this pandemic is over, what have we got to offer God and our community?
