Are there any areas of your life that feel a bit cluttered? Any place where, if even the smallest button is pressed, you’re triggered?
It’s been easy in this stay-at-home season to get caught up in the clutter. To feel as though we have to do everything and be everyone to make sure all bases are covered. But trying to fulfil all these areas in our own strength can not only build up our frustrations, but sap our strength in and devotion to Christ.
We need to chill and regain our zeal! Figure out how you can do that in your own life with this week’s podcast message from Ps Tebo Mpanza.

Life is a series of choices. But how do we know what the right decision is? Nothing is more important than hearing God’s voice and being able to distinguish it from the voices of the world. Pastor Tebo gives insight into how we can tell if God is speaking to us.
Identity. Not knowing who we are is one of the greatest struggles of our generation. When you know who you are in Christ, you’re empowered to live God’s destined life for you. Don’t let the enemy rob you of your identity – you’re verified!
God is refining us in obscurity. Maybe we just need a change in our perspective to see our exile as God developing our character. Today’s exile could be the key to tomorrow’s return.
Transition is the process of changing from one state or condition to another. As followers of Christ we are always in transition, but sometimes these transitions can feel like we’re being tossed around by the wind and waves. Pastor Tebo teaches us how we can cling to Jesus during the storms of transition.
Pastor Tebo encourages us to get back to basics. Put aside the drama, put aside the nonsense, and just focus on Jesus.
Grace is God’s absolute best – the riches of God freely given to us, but at the upmost expense to Jesus. How can we live in good grace?
We often ask the question: Is God good all the time? Pastor Tebo encourages us to bring our perspective and focus back to the absolute truth that God is good. The foundation of all hope is the goodness of God.
In modern society we are very good at being busy, even when
we’re ‘resting’. We’re on call 24/7. Pastor Becky poses the question, what is
true rest in God?
Through the power of the Holy Spirit we can overcome intimidation – we can get our hopes and dreams back. Tune in as Pastor Tebo teaches how this is achievable.
Revival demands and requires that we step up to the next
level. But sometimes we find ourselves in a place where we feel unable to level
up. Why is this? Join us as Ronia encourages us how to keep elevating in life.
God can turn any life circumstance around. Tune in this week as Stu Otten shares his powerful testimony of how God’s love was unrelenting in bringing him out of a life of crime.
One of the most exciting things about life is the opportunities that it presents us. Pastor Becky poses the question: Are our eyes open to these opportunities, or do we see them as obstacles and opposition?
Listen in as Pastors Tebo and Becky talk about topics ranging from how they first met, to what they’ve learned since pastoring our church, to the issues that trouble our generation – not to be missed!
Practicing what you preach, Teach through your acts of faith and keep your integrity. These are just a few of the points discussed in this message by Ps Becky Mpanza as she unpacks ‘Defining Your Standards’ a message that is a continuation of the ‘Savage’ series.
Revival isn’t an emotional touch from heaven, but a transformed life wanting to see other lives transformed. What are the ingredients for revival?
You have died with Christ. So, choose LIFE every day. Tune in as Pastor Tebo continues the Savage series and unpacks what this means.
Nothing is everything. Nothing is the precursor to your everything in God. Pastor Lois declares that we are about to see the everything of God unfold from the nothing that we have.
Tune in and be inspired as Pastor Tebo interviews professional footballer Sam Jones about football, faith, and mental health.
Do you feel like you’ve been losing your breath? Maybe there are areas in your life that have dried up, and the question is: can those dry bones live?
God wants us to get our rhythm back. Inhale the breath of heaven. Breathe again.
The journey is worth it. Don’t get frustrated by the traffic on the way to your destination. Don’t give up on the journey. Remain steadfast, even when things look bleak – you’ll be glad that you did.
When you try to step out in faith and do something great there is always opposition. The enemy doesn’t target the lukewarm of faith, but those who burn passionately for God. Listen in as Pastor Tebo addresses how we can deal with spiritual opposition.
We can approach our lives thinking that there is a distribution problem in heaven – we see others being blessed with gifts, whilst we are seemingly forgotten. The grass always looks greener on the other side. Perhaps heaven doesn’t have a distribution dilemma, so much as we have a recognition dilemma. Pastor Gosia encourages us to shift our perception to see heaven’s blessing as doors of opportunity rather than neatly packaged gifts.
Every pioneer has to wrestle with idealism. The world isn’t as perfect as we imagine – there will always be bumps on the road, especially in this Christian life. God is looking for pioneers who won’t be dissuaded when things don’t go to plan.
When God wants something to happen He will always raise up a pioneer. Are you willing to be the one to break the ground? Are you willing to be the trailblazer who opens up our city to the Gospel?
Thank you. These two small words can have the biggest impact in your life. We are called to enter into God’s gates with thanksgiving, and His courts with praise. What can thanksgiving unlock in your life?
Empathy enables us to understand a person’s feelings in a given situation by putting us in their shoes. It’s an amazing trait to have, but don’t become so empathetic that you’re weighed down by the heaviness of their situation, and are unable to act compassionately towards them. Pastor Becky encourages us to stop allowing empathy to restrict us, so we can move in to compassion.
People problems. Most of the drama we face comes from tensions between ourselves and others. How can we change this in 2019? Pastor Tebo gives four keys that can help you live a tension-free life so that you can crack on with purpose.
God is not intimidated by your drama. He brings brilliance out of what was intended to harm you. He turns your drama in to destiny. Pastor Tebo shows us how to respond to drama in 2019.
We all love the idea of having resolutions for the new year, but we’re often discouraged when we don’t see these resolutions all the way through. Pastor Jo Willis encourages us that change is a byproduct of our relationship with God. Fuel your resolutions with a fresh revelation of God.

You don’t want to miss this!
Happiness isn’t an easy destination to reach – it’s often temporary, and easily stolen. Joy, on the other hand, can be permanent if we allow it. Tune in as Pastor Becky explains how we can find fullness of joy rather than striving to pursue happiness.
Join us as Jay Smith shares his powerful life story. Lean in, and be encouraged and inspired by the transformative power of the Gospel.
Tune in to this powerful message shared by Pastor Tim Ross at our Sheffield location. The same sin that is able to destroy individuals can also destroy community. Prepare to be challenged as Pastor Tim Ross leads us through Biblical examples of what NOT to do if we want to remain in community.
In every area of life you are in there is always a king; someone who wields power and authority in their sphere of influence. We are born to influence the influencer. Tune in to Pastor Jo Willis and find out how to move kings.
Revenge is the desire to repay a wrong. It may seem like a normal human response, but the Bible says otherwise. Revenge has multiple faces, many of which we aren’t necessarily aware of. Tune in as Pastor Tebo explains the best way we can get revenge.
The Word of God always produces fruit, for it will accomplish what it has set out to do, not returning empty or void. Nothing is wasted in our lives when we are surrendered to Jesus.
Tune in to this special podcast from Hope City Birmingham’s She is Gathering evening.
We all have a desire to be known, but we have a greater desire to know who we are. It’s only in Christ that we find ourselves.
Moments of pressure are doorways to greatness. The temptation of life is to stay on milk, but God wants us to move on to solids. How do you perceive pressure?
You were never designed to quit, you were born to win. But the temptation to quit is everywhere, and on the surface it doesn’t look like quitting. Listen and engage as Pastor Tebo explains how we can increase our Staying Power.
There’s a difference between what you need, and what you think you need. Pastor Tebo encourages us to shift our focus from our outward situations to our inward transformation.
Our lives might look like plain, run-of-the-mill clay pots, but the truth is that we carry incredible spiritual treasure within us. Fine tune your eyes to see the extraordinary that God adds to your ordinary.
Sometimes we think we are much stronger spiritually than we actually are. We can’t rely on our own might, but rather we should condition ourselves in God’s strength. Lean in as Pastor Becky gives us valuable tips on how to strength train.
