Fourth & Fifth Signs – Jesus offers us new possibilities

Anxiety preys on all of us.

It makes us fear we won’t have enough, or that we will be overwhelmed.

Jesus knows this and is able to transform these fears of not having enough to living abundantly.

First Sign – Jesus Offers New Life

Too many of us wonder whether we are good enough, or fear what others might think about us.

The power of shame can be crippling.

Hope Beyond Fear

How did the ‘hopes and fears of all the years’ meet in Jesus?

The Wisdom Of Nurturing Generations

How do we invest well in the next generations?

The Prayers of Jesus – Intercessory Prayer

In John 17, Jesus prays for his disciples to be protected from the evil one, to be full of joy, to be sanctified and to be unified.

Could he still be praying those things for us now and how might we part of the answer?

The Prayers of Jesus – Intimate Prayer

John 17 is the most revealing of all prayers: it’s a window into the intimacy shared between Jesus and his Father before the creation of the world…

Churches That Change The World: Open Hearts

Faith in Jesus means nothing if you don’t love Jesus’ friends.

And love means nothing if it isn’t accompanied by action.

It’s what we do, not what we say.

Daring to Hope… despite our sin

Most of us suffer from Imposter Syndrome, the whisper that says we’re not good enough. And the voice isn’t telling lies. We mess up too often.

But that’s not the final truth…
