The Messy Middle – Louise Davies

Right now, we’re in The Messy Middle. We’re experiencing losses, a slowing down, a redirection of purpose and changes to our daily rhythm. It’s been confusing and difficult to adjust.

Let’s Do This Again – Chris Denham

This is an unprecedented season for us all.  In unprecedented moments, God can do unprecedented things. Today’s sermon emphasises the importance of remembering God’s work in our lives, it is important to know that God is more than able to deliver us from this valley again and again. It’s easier to step out in faith when we see God move over and over again. God is calling out to you today to go again. Let’s do this, again.

Head Down, Eyes Up, Go – Mark Ritchie

In this Easter message, guest speaker Mark Ritchie encourages us in our ‘mess’ and points us to Christ and the power of the cross.

Speaking from Mark 16, he demonstrates how in the midst of the unknown, our default is to just keep our heads down and get on with things, but that through the promise of Christ’s life we can lift our eyes and receive His hope. In turn, this encourages us to go and share this hope with our world!

We pray this message fills you with the joy and peace of Christ!

Happy Easter!

 

 

 

Courageous Faith – Jo Willis

The glory days are something we so often look at as something that’s behind us, but more than ever before we believe that it’s something God is leading us into.

What’s Love Got to Do With it – Jeff Lucas

Ps Jeff Lucas shares his salvation story through the lenses of his ‘confused’ 17year old self to express the power of prayer.

This message helps you to understand and see the similarities and differences between Church as we know now and the Early Church. However, despite this the only thing that has stay the same through out the ages is the Love of God for his people. His devoted people.

Breaking Resistance – Tebo Mpanza

If you see a sign saying ‘don’t walk on the grass’, we are all struck by a great temptation to walk on the grass!

Resistance comes in all forms from a subtle pulling back to public meltdown. This message by Tebo Mpanza, Hope City Birmingham Pastor, will help you speed into your God given future by taking your foot off the brake pedal. And we all have one.

The Meaning of Life – Ps Dave Gilpin

To have a life of meaning is the primary driver of human souls. To do this, tables must turn, saying goodbyes must happen, storm clouds are ushered and reinventions begun. That’s why many choose to attempt to live a life of happiness only to discover that on either side of moments of happiness lies deep discontent. The more meaningful your life is, the more fulfilled you’ll become.
