The Transfiguration: a sermon from 3rd March 2019

The impetuous Peter wanted to make the most of the situation, so he could hold onto it for longer. As humans, we like to make it comfortable for us, to hold on to something we don't want to let go of. However, God was in control; the purpose of the visit from Elijah and Moses was to reassure and guide Jesus - we can't control Jesus: rather, we must be open to the answers God gives us and be open to understand. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IcT2KfOaYXA

Jesus and the Storm: a sermon from 24th February 2019

Jesus as an adult has absolute trust in his father. He knows that God the Father is there, for him. The disciples? Like most of us get scared. We all face ups and downs in life, and we can't escape fear and hurt - and in those moments, how do we react? Are we still able to see the truth Jesus points to - or does our fear get in the way of the truth that God is with us? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=feYSb0iOkT0

Enslaved by doctrine: a sermon from 17th February 2019

Do we try to add to our Christian faith? We've been rescued from slavery by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ - yet do our own rules and habits enslave us? We have freedom in and through Christ with a sign in the Holy Spirit that we're a child of God. However, is it easier to argue about aspects of doctrine than to accept that God sent Jesus to set us free? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UAv0Fn3Zg-o

EcoChurch: a sermon from 10th February 2019

God gave us dominion over the world we live upon; however, not to use as we will, but to work responsibly as Stewards of what is, ultimately, God's creation. Gordon Randall joined us early in February to talk about our responsibly in a world damaged severely through our misuse and abuse - and how we must work as one to turn around this small blue-green globe to the perfect image God originally created. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KN7rYqYPSdg

Waiting: a sermon from 27th January 2019

How good are you at waiting? The Christmas countdown through December can be torturous for an excited child (or adult!) and the wait for your next birthday can be just as bad. However, the people of Israel waited over 800 years: can you wait that long? God delivers on his promises; however, we must be patient that God knows what is best for us and will deliver in time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HhX3T641FRU

The Good Wine: a sermon from the 20th January 2019

There comes a time when the wine gives out; the glass is empty; the party is over. There is no vibrance or vitality - our world feels tasteless and devoid of colour. Where has the wine of our lives given out - what relationships have run dry? However, God never intended for us to live from our own resources; the day the wine runs is out is the beginning of a miracle. Jesus doesn't just refill our glasses - he transforms our lives, changing colourless, bland water to a vibrant red wine which tingles the tongue with a full bouquet. Every moment of every day, Jesus pours into our lives - the good...
